Billie Jean James Missing For Four Months in Las Vegas, NV Found Under Pile of Garbage in Own Home
File this one under, … Hoarding can be hazardous to your health.
67 year old Billie Jean James had been missing for four months in Las Vegas, Nevada. James had been missing since April 22, 2010 after she vanished from her home near Silverado Ranch and the ‘M’ Resort. Friends and family were offering a $10,000 reward. However, police had no clues and stated that it would be a difficult case to solve.
Well, there was a reason why police had no clues and why no one had seen her leave her home or go off and any direction. Because she never left her home.
“We don’t have anyone that actually saw her leave or go in a certain direction. We just know she was here at home and that she disappeared from her house,” said Sgt. Peter Ferranti.
Since her disappearance, there’s been an outpouring of support from close friends who’ve helped raise a $10,000 reward. They’ve also circulated Billie’s picture across the valley and as far south as Barstow California.
Four nonths after her disappearance Billie Jean James remains were found in her home under a ceiling high pile of garbage. Yes, that is correct … Billie Jean was a hoarder, the house was a complete pig stigh and no one knew including the woman’s husband that she had died in the house and her body was buried under a mountain of trash. Can you only imagine what this house smelled like that the odor or rotting flesh could not be detected? Her body was discovered by her husband when he was cleaning a back room. They clean?
Body of Las Vegas woman found in clutter at home. Can you believe that the police searched the home with search dogs and found nothing. In some cases the garbage was so extensive in the home that it made it impassable even to search dogs.
A four-month search for a missing Las Vegas woman came to a ghastly end this week when her husband found her corpse in their home amid a labyrinth of squalor that had been impassable even to search dogs.
Bill James apparently had no idea that the body of his pack-rat wife, Billie Jean, was under the same roof as he helped police scour the home and the Nevada desert for any sign of her. Then he spotted the feet of the body poking out of a floor-to-ceiling pile of junk Wednesday, revealing in shocking detail the woman’s penchant for hoarding.
Police say they searched the home several times — even using dogs from a unit that helped locate bodies at ground zero after Sept. 11 and Hurricane Katrina. But they were unable to find the body of amid the piles of clothes, knickknacks, trash and other junk.

Was stunned after watching just one episode of HOARDERS on the TLC Channel. Interesting the psychological sickness behind the behavior problem, absolutely unthinkable that thousands of people actually live like this.
how did she get under the pile of garbage is what puzzles me.
sounds fishy to me??? how did she get under the garbage? I suspect the husband or someone put her there!!
There is alot if things that went wrong! How is it possibly for anyone to do there job as a police with that much trash, and seem to me that they didn’t care! Do these people have kids?who do they live near the pig farm in Vegas? It seem as though someone dropped the ball it could be las Vegas finest or neighbors however thus is one crazy situation.
something is not right here.
Me thinks she was stashed there and the husband figured the police would find her and they would decide she was crushed by a trash-alanche.
When they didn’t, he “discovered” her later.
