Sparks Police have released a few more details concerning a murder investigation involving a woman reported missing earlier this week.

On Friday, police announced that 50-year-old Kimberley Seaton died of strangulation. She had been sharing a home with 57-year-old Thomas E. Brant.

Police say an investigation led them to Brant's home located in the 1800 block of C Street in Sparks.

Detectives spoke with Brant and searched the residence where they say they found her body buried in a shallow grave in the backyard of his house.

Police interviewed Brant and say he admitted to her murder after police found her body.

Brant was booked into the Washoe County Jail Tuesday on one count of murder.

Officers say the investigation has determined that this was an isolated incident and that no one else was involved, or that Brant has victimized anyone else in this manner.
