Family of Brandy Morrison to meet with detectives, after body of missing woman is found in a landfill

ST. LOUIS (KPLR) - St. Louis homicide detectives discovered the body of a woman in a Metro East landfill.

Family members of a missing north St. Louis woman believe it is the body of Brandy Morrison.

23-year-old Brandy Morrison was reported missing on January 28th.

Her family said they received phone calls about her disappearance pointing them to a house on Laura Avenue.

On Monday, a fire broke out in a home on the 6200 block of Laura. Morrison's family believed that fire was related to her disappearance.

A family member also alerted police to some blood inside a dumpster in an alley behind homes on Laura.

According to our partners at the Post-Dispatch, St. Louis homicide detectives traced the trash collection route from a city neighborhood to a landfill in Marissa Illinois.

That is where a dog located the body of a black female.

Police sources have confirmed the body found is Brandy Morrison but the family is scheduled to meet detectives to identify the body Wednesday morning.
