Remains believed to be those of Kamille “Cupcake” McKinney, abducted 10 days ago from a Birmingham birthday party, were found by police and FBI agents Tuesday night inside of a dumpster at a landfill.

If the body is that of the child, the discovery will mark a tragic end to a massive search that has kept Birmingham, and all of Alabama, on edge for nearly two weeks.

“I wish I had all of you gathered here with good news. I wish I could share a high five or some other type of celebratory salutation but I cannot,” said Birmingham Police Chief Patrick Smith.

The Birmingham Police Department, along with the FBI, found Kamille’s remains inside of a Santek dumpster that had been parked in the Center Point area and later moved to a landfill near Warrior.

Smith said investigators have been sifting through about 12 tons of trash collected from in and around the Birmingham area for several days.

“Our investigators, along with the FBI, have worked tirelessly, 24 hours a day, to locate this young child and bring her back home and to hold those accountable who were involved in her disappearance … and ultimately her demise,” Smith said.

The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency at 9:29 p.m. Tuesday cancelled the Amber Alert issued hours after the abduction.
