She said he placed the body in a garage in Centreville.

Quate, 34, was arrested Tuesday by Las Vegas police after his wife took refuge at a women's shelter and accused her husband of murdering their youngest daughter, Alysha.

Las Vegas police removed the other children from that home and say they appeared to be abused.

The owner of the home, which is vacant, let officers into the garage, where they found the body wrapped in some blankets.

The girl's remains were found early Tuesday morning inside a detached garage at a vacant house in Centreville. No charges have been filed in IL, either, though a homicide investigation continues.

Information from a woman who said her husband forced her into prostitution led investigators from Las Vegas to IL, where they found the decomposed body of a child inside a garage.

She says she only met the youngest of three daughters one time when she was still an infant. She also said he had forced her into sex trafficking over the past two years and had abused two other children. Investigators believe the child was killed in 2013.




Detectives are coordinating with authorities in IL on the discovery of the child's body. Quate is jailed in Las Vegas on charges that he forced his wife into sex trafficking.

Belleville police will be going to Las Vegas as part of the investigation into the child's death.

She said she could not yet release the nature of the charges pending against the man who had been arrested. Quate has not been charged in his daughter's death.

The girls were found in an apartment where police said they were never allowed outside, even to attend school.

The Associated Press is withholding the woman's name to avoid identifying the children and because authorities said she is considered a victim in the sex trafficking and prostitution case. She said she would not allow authorities to enter and check the children's well-being.

The surviving children are now in protective custody and did show signs of abuse, according to Las Vegas Police.

He also addressed a statement he made to the Las Vegas TV station on Wednesday - that his wife had told him in 2013 that she had found a family to adopt their daughter. "You have some very seasoned SWAT officers who were visibly shaken and moved by how disturbing of a scene it was out there this morning", said Las Vegas police Lt. Neighbors said they didn't have a clue as to what was happening in the home.
