The granddaughter of a Greenville couple was found dead Tuesday in Centreville, Illinois.
Alysha Quate, age 6, is the granddaughter of Christine and Danny O’Dell of Greenville.
Her mother is the former Elizabeth O’Dell of Greenville.
A fund has been established for the burial of the young girl. Donations can be made at National Bank in Greenville.
The grandparents told WGEL they last saw Alysha in 2013, when parents Elizabeth and Jason Quate, and their three daughters, lived in Belleville. The parents and two other daughters have been recently living in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Jason Quate is currently in custody in Las Vegas on charges of aleged sex trafficking of an adult and accepting or receiving earnings of a prostitute.
On Monday, Nevada police received information about Alysha’s death and where her body could be found in a Centreville garage.
The death of the girl is under investigation. Authorities indicate other charges against Jason Quate are possible.
Elizabeth Quate is also in custody in Nevada on an unrelated St. Clair County, Illinois forgery case.
Once again, the account for Alysha Quate’s burial expenses is at National Bank in Greenville. The grandparents said the Perfetti Funeral Home in Sorento will be in charge of the funeral.
