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.

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.
