A man walking his dog in the Nevada desert found the body of 10-year-old Jade Morris, who went missing after her babysitter was arrested for slashing a casino dealer last Friday. Jade’s body was found Thursday near an unfinished housing development in the northern portion of the Las Vegas Valley, the Huffington Post reports.
Family members visually identified the girl’s body Thursday afternoon.
“We are heartbroken today. It has been confirmed by family members that the body of … Jade Morris has been found. We pray for her family,” Natalie Wilson told The Huffington Post.
Wilson said the family wasn’t told the cause of death.
Blogger Nicola C. Mitchell writes that her 10-year-old god-daughter Jade Morris is missing under unusual circumstances, and the Nevada police refuse to investigate:
Good Morning Las Vegas. My 10 year old God-Daughter Jade Morris is missing. On Friday afternoon her step mother Brenda Jean Stokes picked her up and was arrested yesterday at the Bellagio Hotel after stabbing her co-worker. Now Brenda denies ever picking up Jade and no one has seen her. PLEASE SHARE THIS PICTURE ON ALL OF YOUR PAGES! PLEASE. If you have seen this baby, please DM me, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and or contact the Clark County police department missing persons at (702) 828-2907.
