WEST JORDAN  -- West Jordan police are calling the death of a 6-year-old girl a possible homicide.

Police Sgt. Drew Sanders says a family member reported the girl missing from a home near 2400 West and 7100 South about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday. Officers who responded found the child dead in a nearby canal a short time later.

The death happened in the same neighborhood where two houses burned in a fire Saturday. Both homes were destroyed after a tree fell on a power line and sparked the blaze.

Authorities have not yet identified the child. Police said her body would be taken to the state medical examiner's office for an autopsy.
