Chilling confession leads to child's body

Chilling confession leads to child's body

The dead child was found in the detached garage of a dilapidated, boarded-up home in Centreville, an impoverished community just across the Mississippi River from St. Louis. She told investigators the child's remains could be found in the garage of a home on Russell Avenue in Centreville, Ill., according to KTVI.

Authorities in Las Vegas are coordinating with officials in IL on the investigation into the child's death. No charges have been filed in IL, either, though a homicide investigation continues.

The woman called Las Vegas police early Tuesday, telling them her 7-year-old child died in 2015 and the body could be found in the home's garage, according to the local coroner, Calvin Dye Sr.

"She was looking for a good place to hide the body", he said.

Officers found the small body wrapped in two blankets. Officers in Nevada are working with the Metro East authorities who are investigating the child's death, she said.

A woman who alleged shocking abuse at the hands of her 34-year-old husband, including being forced into prostitution, went to police with information about remains in an IL garage.

Two children in the apartment showed signs of abuse and neglect and were taken into protective custody, KLAS reports.

Belleville police will be going to Las Vegas as part of the investigation into the child's death. Raymond Spencer said in a video statement.

Quate told the TV station he agreed to let a family adopt their youngest daughter "because we were struggling really badly at the time with money and cash and trying to take care of three girls". Neighbors said they didn't have a clue as to what was happening in the home. And he says it was his wife's idea to move to Las Vegas and become a prostitute.
