A four-month search for a missing Las Vegas woman has come to an end in the unlikeliest of places: her own home.
The Clark County Coroner’s office said Friday that the corpse found in the clutter-filled home belongs to 67-year-old Billie Jean James. A spokeswoman says it could take weeks to determine when and how she died.

Police say her husband made the shocking discovery this week.
Police say they searched the home several times — even using dogs from a unit that helped locate bodies at ground zero after Sept. 11. But they were unable to find the body amid the hoards of clothes, knickknacks and other junk.
The woman’s husband has not been named as a suspect.
