Body recovered from rubble after Kansas City blast

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Search crews at the site of a massive explosion that destroyed a popular Kansas City, Mo., restaurant recovered one body Wednesday, and the city’s mayor said there was no certainty the rubble wasn’t concealing other victims.

Mayor Sly James declined to say whether the body belonged to a man or a woman, though authorities have been looking for a woman who worked at JJ’s restaurant and was seen there before the Tuesday evening blast and reported missing afterward. They previously said she was the only person still unaccounted for following the explosion and fire.
