A Sparks woman reported missing Monday has been found in a shallow grave in the backyard of a Sparks home.
Kimberley Seaton's daughter reported her mother missing on December 7th. She told police she hadn't heard from her mother in awhile and was concerned.
The Sparks Police Department continued the investigation into 50-year-old Kimberley Seaton into Tuesday morning.
The investigation led to an address in the 1857 block of C Street in Sparks, where Seaton had been staying with Thomas Brant.
Detectives spoke with Brant and conducted a search of the residence. Seaton's body was found buried in a shallow grave in the back yard of his home.
Brant was interviewed by detectives and admitted to the murder of Seaton.
Police will not say how the woman died or her relationship with the suspect.
Brant has been booked into the Washoe County Jail on one count of murder.
