The body of 3-year-old Kamille "Cupcake" McKinney was recovered by law enforcement in Alabama on Tuesday, bringing an end to a 10-day search for the girl.

Her remains were found inside of a dumpster at a landfill in Birmingham, Alabama, Tuesday evening.

Police say she was last seen on the evening of Oct. 12 while attending a party. The police issued an Amber Alert in hopes of finding Kamille.

Birmingham Chief of Police Patrick Smith said that warrants will be issued on Wednesday charging Patrick Stallworth and Derick Irisha Brown with kidnapping and capital murder. Both suspects are in police custody.

"We believe that this was something they thought about and act upon and they saw an opportunity to take a young child," Smith said.

Smith said that investigators believe there is no connection between Kamille's family and the suspects.

A routine search led police to Kamille's body.
