Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Friends and family of 28-year-old Josephine Butler are taking to the streets for help, in finding answers surrounding her death.
Butler's body was discovered in a dumpster on the east side of town, but family members say she was raised in the northwest Valley.
That's why they're passing out and posting flyers around area businesses, with the hope that someone who may have information about Butler's death will come forward.
Butler's family said they knew something was wrong when she went two nights in a row without calling her 7-year-old daughter to say their good night prayers.
They filed a missing persons report and the next day a detective showed up on the family's doorstep, letting them know Butler was dead.
Her body had been found stuffed in a duffel bag and tossed into a back alley dumpster near Craig and Nellis.
Family members said, because of the gruesome way Butler died, they won't be able to rest until someone comes forward with information.
