VEGAS (AP) – Las Vegas police say the bodies of two people were found in a house after a 9-year-old boy told officials at a nearby school that his mother and sister were dead.       Investigators say they’re questioning a man found covered in blood at the home.
Officer Marcus Martin told The Associated Press that police arriving around 9 a.m. Monday found two people dead inside the single-story house in an older, middle class neighborhood about eight miles north of the Las Vegas Strip.
The boy’s brother, who is 4 years old, was also inside but he was not hurt.       Martin says the 9-year-old boy told officials at nearby Hoggard Elementary School about the scene at the house.       No other details were released

  1. This is a great example of where a parents efforts to teach their child the art of “description” is so very important!

  2. This is such a sad story…but the child’s reaction is amazing.

    • If a child recognizes a teacher, friend or parent as a trusted adult then they can open up and tell, when the need arises. I was that teacher for years…..I am so glad his teacher was that trusted adult for him!
