Missing 3-Year Old Alabama Girl Found Dead in a Trash Bin

Kamille McKinney, missing toddler found dead

Birmingham, AL — The body of 3-year old Kamille “Cupcake” McKinney has been found by Birmingham Police in a trash bin that had been taken at a local landfill 10 days after she was allegedly kidnapped. Police said two suspects will be facing murder charges in connection to the crime.

Police Chief Patrick Smith said they plan to charge Patrick Devone Stallworth, who is 39-years old, and his girlfriend Derick Irisha Brown, who is 29-years old with kidnapping and capital murder. They were initially identified as persons of interest in the case.

Stallworth and Brown have no connection to the family but they were connected to the car that matched the description of the car that was used in the kidnapping. The two have been arrested and are now in custody.

Police said Stallworth was earlier charged with child pornography in a separate case. Brown was previously accused of abducting her three children from DHR custody in 2018.

According to the investigation, Kamille went missing while outside a birthday party on October 12. Surveillance footage on the area showed two children, one believed to be Kamille, playing when they followed a man who approached them until they were out of the view of the camera.

It was not clear how long the girl was dead when her body was found. An autopsy was performed but the cause of death was not declared.

Mayor Randall Woodfin said the girl’s parents were experiencing “unimaginable” pain. He said in a statement, “The perpetrator of this crime will be brought to justice and be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. So tonight Birmingham we mourn as one, please uplift this family. Uplift your own families. Hold your loved ones tighter.”

Governor Kay Ivey also extended her condolences to the family. In a statement, she said, “The heart of our state is broken, but we must do all we can to avoid this happening to another family. Our prayers remain with Kamille’s family and all who have been touched by this nightmare.”
