Body Discovered in Remains of Kansas City Restaurant, the Site of a Gas Explosion

by Colonel on February 20, 2013

“Search crews at the site of a massive explosion that destroyed a popular Kansas City, Mo., restaurant have found the remains of one person, the city’s mayor said Wednesday morning.

Authorities have been looking for a woman who worked at JJ’s restaurant, was seen there before the Tuesday evening blast and was reported missing afterward. They previously said she was the only person still unaccounted for following the explosion and fire.

But James said at a news conference that authorities can’t be “100 percent sure that we can account for every single person that may have been at JJ’s when the explosion occurred.”

James said 15 people were injured in the blast. Six were still hospitalized Wednesday morning.

The blast occurred after a construction crew apparently struck a natural gas line. The explosion was felt for nearly a mile around the restaurant.
