THE body of a missing pregnant woman have been found “dumped in a shallow grave two months after she disappeared".
Kayla Nicole Rice, 33, was reported missing by relatives in December who said she was six months pregnant at the time.
Rice’s body was found Thursday in a shallow grave near Vinton, Louisiana, in Calcaieu Parish, around 40 miles from her home in Beaumont, local cops said Friday.
Investigators received a 911 call about a body in a shallow grave on Ged Road near Ged Lake close to Vinton.
At the time of her disappearance detectives said they had “interviewed several known associates” but had been unable to locate the missing woman.
Cops found her vehicle soon after she had been reported missing but it was found to have been “physically altered”.
A judge has ordered an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
Beaumont Police said they were investigating the death along with Calcasieu deputies and the FBI.
Anyone with any information about Rice’s death and disappearance is asked to call Beaumont PD on 409 832 1234 or Southeast Texas Crime Stoppers on 409 833 TIPS.
