“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 Birmingham Police Chief Patrick 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.”

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

“We have been detaining all of the trash being collected from one area and we found this evening remains of a child,” Smith said.

Kamille was last seen around 8:30 p.m. on the evening of Oct. 12 at a party in the Tom Brown Village housing community in Birmingham.

“More than ever, this family needs us all,” Mayor Randall Woodfin said. “So tonight, we mourn as one.”
