Alleged ex-trafficking victim leads police to child's body

Alleged ex-trafficking victim leads police to child's body

A Las Vegas woman told investigators Tuesday that her dead child had been in a southern IL home for two years, and authorities later found human remains in the vacant house, according to authorities. She also accused Quate of killing their daughter and putting the body in the garage of a vacant home in Centreville, Ill.

We found IL court records showing Quate was arrested on a warrant in July of 2000 and found guilty on two felony charges of burglary.

Thomas said police believe the child was killed in Belleville and dumped in the garage.

Investigators found remains believed to belong to a little girl buried in a garage in IL.

Contact 13 investigated the background of the man Las Vegas police charged with sex trafficking, and IL officials suspect may be involved in the death of one of his own children. Belleville police said a team of investigators is headed to Nevada.

A prosecutor says he expects to file formal charges soon.

Any potential homicide investigation would be handled by St. Clair County law enforcement. The woman went to a woman's shelter on Monday seeking to escape.

Quate is accused of forcing his wife to work as a prostitute in Las Vegas after they moved about two years ago to the Las Vegas area with two other children, who are now in their teens.

"She stated that her husband was extremely abusive and had forced her to go out and solicit herself for prostitution and also was physically abusive to the children", said Lt. Raymond Spencer, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police.

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.

Detectives authored a search warrant for the Las Vegas address, and in the early morning hours of June 6, LVMPD SWAT officers assisted with the service of that search warrant.

Quate was jailed after his wife told police that he killed their then-6-year-old daughter in 2013 and hid the body in IL. She wanted to come out here and be a prostitute. "What happened? How could she have known this all this time and didn't say nothing?" I've never harmed her. An autopsy is expected to take place later this week, St. Clair County Coroner Calvin Dye Sr. said. "I'm the only one who's been loving to them", he said.

Quate is jailed in Las Vegas.
