LAS VEGAS - Metro Police hope the public will help them in obtaining more information about Bailley Short, a woman found on Aug. 15 bleeding in a boiler room near a parking garage in the 7200 block of South Las Vegas Boulevard.
Police said Short, who died from her injuries, was shot. The investigation initiated by the LVMPD Homicide Section indicates Short had been walking with an unknown male an hour before she was found.
In October, 8 News NOW did a story about Metro Police's facial recognition software. It's all apart of the technical operations section of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
"We found her, but we didn't find any identification; no belongings, nothing that would identify or give us a starting point to conduct the investigation," said Lt. Ray Spencer, Metro Police Homicide.
Short's case was the first time homicide detectives used facial recognition software to identify the victim, giving investigators perhaps a 24-hour head-start on trying to track down leads. Instead of having to wait for the coroner.
Anyone with any information on Short’s whereabouts in the days prior to August 15, 2018 is urged to contact detectives.
Anyone with any information about this incident is urged to contact the LVMPD Homicide Section by phone at 702-828-3521, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. To remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 702-385-5555, or on the internet at www.crimestoppersofnv.com. Tips leading directly to an arrest or indictment processed through Crime Stoppers may be eligible for a cash reward.
