Remains of Kamille ‘Cupcake’ McKinney found in dumpster

Remains believed to be the 3-year-old girl kidnapped from a birthday party in Alabama 10 days ago were found in a dumpster on Tuesday night, officials said.

Patrick Stallworth, 39, and Derick Brown, 29, were taken into custody and questioned by police last week after video evidence and witnesses connected them to a vehicle seen during the night of October 12, when Kamille went missing.

"To the family of Kamille, I speak on behalf of all the residents of this city ... your pain, your grief, your tears, you anger, your sadness, your many questions, your pain is not ignored", Birmingham mayor Randall Woodfin said. After his arrest, Stallworth was charged with seven counts of child pornography and possession with intent to distribute child pornography, once Birmingham Police found incriminating photos on his cell phone.

Investigators found the remains inside of a dumpster at a Birmingham landfill, Smith said.

"We're hoping that someone will see this video and recognize the individual on there or he himself will say 'Hey, that's me, ' and whatever information they can provide, we'd greatly appreciate it", Smith said.

McKinney had been missing since October 12, when she disappeared from a public housing project in Birmingham where a birthday party was being held.

"More than ever, this family needs us all", MayorRandall Woodfin said.

"Right now, I ask one thing of this community", said Woodfin.

"The heart of our state is broken.", Ivey said.

The day after Kamille's abduction, police took Stallworth and Brown, his girlfriend, into custody and impounded his Toyota SUV after authorities said he was identified as a man seen in surveillance footage at an Avondale store near the time of Kamille's abduction. He was released on bond but re-arrested on Tuesday evening. "Our prayers remain with Kamille's family and all who have been touched by this nightmare".

Chief Smith said kidnapping and murder charges would be placed against Derick Brown and Patrick Stallworth. "We believe that this was something that they thought about, and acted upon, and they saw an opportunity to take a young child, which they did". "Our further investigation will determine whatever happened after that", said Smith. "Your cries for help have not gone unanswered and will not go unanswered". It's a sad day for Kamille's family.

Smith said investigators believe the perpetrators planned the incident.

Within 24 hours of Kamille's abduction, police were confident that Stallworth and Brown were responsible for the crime.

Crime Stoppers of Metro Alabama offered a $20,000 reward to anyone with information which would help police solve the crime.

It wasn't clear how long the child might have been dead.
