BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WHNT) -- The remains of a child have been found and law enforcement officers confirmed they believe them to be Kamille "Cupcake" McKinney's.
Birmingham Police Chief Patrick Smith said McKinney’s likely remains were found in a Dumpster at a landfill.
“I wish I had all of you gathered here with good news. I wish I could share a high five or some other celebratory salutation, but I cannot,” said Chief Smith. “I brought you here today because the Birmingham Police Dept., along with the FBI, have located the remains of a 3-year-old child who we believe to be Kamille ‘Cupcake’ McKinney.”
McKinney had been missing since Oct. 12, when she disappeared from a public housing project in Birmingham where a birthday party was being held.
Chief Smith said kidnapping and murder charges would be placed against Derick Brown and Patrick Stallworth.
Stallworth was charged with seven counts of child porn after police found images on his cellphone during the abduction investigation. He was released from jail on $500,000 bond and was taken back into custody Tuesday night.
Brown has been held without bond since authorities filed a motion to revoke her bond in a 2018 case in which she is accused of abducting her own children from DHR custody.
