They say the remains of a three-year-old child believed to be McKinney were found in a dumpster and recovered inside of a landfill in Birmingham. They have been detaining all of the trash from a certain area and they found the body this evening.

Kamille was last seen at about 8:30 p.m. on October 12 in the Tom Brown Housing Community while attending a party. An Amber Alert was issued which was extended to surrounding states while local investigtors and the FBI worked around the clock to find the little girl and hold those responsible for her disappearance accountable.

Wednesday, the Birmingham Police Department will be seeking on warrants for kidnapping and capital murder for Patrick Stallworth and Derick Irisha Brown. Brown remained in custody after her initial arrest. Stallworth was taken into custody when, according to Birmingham Police, they placed the last pieces of the puzzle they had been working on for quite some time to make sure that they had all of the evidence they needed to bring them into custody.

At this time, investigators are still working to determine if anyone else was involved. They have determined that there was no connection between the two suspects in custody and Kamille McKinney’s family.
