Body found after K.C. restaurant blast

One body was pulled from the debris today at the site of yesterday's explosion at a Kansas City, Missouri, restaurant.

Officials say they cannot be certain that there are no other victims of the JJ's restaurant explosion, which happened Tuesday evening after a strong odor of gas was reported in the area.

One female employee was reported missing after the blast, but Fire Chief Paul Berardi said it was too early to confirm the identity of the victim, whose body was found near the restaurant's bar area. At least 15 people were injured in the blast.

      I'd call that nonsense, since they don't even know who the person is yet, dot.
