(Newser) – One body has been pulled from the rubble of yesterday's explosion in Kansas City that destroyed a restaurant, reports AP. The Kansas City Star says it is thought to be a 46-year-old female server at JJ's restaurant. Authorities think she is the only fatality, but they won't know for sure until the cleanup is finished. The investigation continues into how the blast occurred, with a gas leak still the leading theory. Six people remained hospitalized.

the occupants in cars in the video, "Al K'da (al-Qaeda) is attacking Kansas City". No it is just our shitty infrastructure. Oh my god. I just read the linked article. Heart breaking. "Cramer had been working at JJ’s as a server for several months" What the hell! According to this article the victim had a law degree? And working as a waitress? Strange.
