A Kansas City, Missouri, woman accused of living off her father’s Social Security and VA Benefits will be extradited to Nevada after her father’s remains were found buried in his yard.
The Nye County Sheriff’s Office in Nevada said in a press release Monday that it served a search warrant at a residence on Peggy Avenue in Pahrump, Nevada, last Friday, to search for human remains reportedly buried on the property.
In a post on Facebook, authorities said the case started in April, when 95-year-old Bruce Brown went missing.
