The Jefferson County Coroner/Medical Examiners office confirmed Wednesday afternoon the remains found Tuesday night belong to Kamille "Cupcake" McKinney, according to 33/40.

The girl's body was found in a dumpster in Gardendale, police said at a press conference Tuesday. The exact time and location of her death are still under investigation.

Once an autopsy is complete, 33/40 reports that information will given to Birmingham police who will decide whether or not to release those details to the public.

The Birmingham Police Department also said it plans to charge suspects Patrick Stallworth and Derick Irisha Brown with capital murder and kidnapping in connection to the case.

Kamille was abducted near a Birmingham housing area on Oct. 12.

Police on Friday released surveillance footage from the night Kamille was abducted. In the video, two children, one of whom is believed to Kamille, are seen playing outside.

One of the men in the video, who apparently "engages the children," is a suspect, according to Birmingham Police Chief Patrick Smith.

Police are looking to identify and speak with the first male in the video.

"The first man who walked by in the video, he may have pertinent information that will help us," Smith said. "This is the male we're looking for ... we want to talk to him ... if he saw something that night that may be critical to the investigation."

Police do not yet know a motive for the abduction.

A $28,000 reward has been offered to find the little girl.

"If you have her and you're not sure what to do … please bring her to one of our fire stations, police station, a hospital," Smith said at an earlier press conference. "If you don't know what to do or where to go and you're frightened, we're here to help you ... please bring her to a safe location."
