Las Vegas Body Might Be Missing Girl

Authorities said Thursday that they found a body at an unfinished development in North Las Vegas who may be Jade Morris, a 10-year-old girl who has been missing since last week. Morris was last seen with her father’s fiancée, Brenda Stokes, on the evening of December 21. Though Stokes has not been charged with the death, she has not cooperated with police and she is being held on a host of other charges, including that she allegedly slashed the face of a blackjack dealer at the Bellagio on the same night. The body has not been confirmed to be Morris’s, but the police said that “the likelihood is, this is our victim.”
