Kamille Dantrice McKinney (April 22, 2016 – October 12, 2019) was a 3-year-old American girl who was abducted and murdered after being dropped off at a birthday party.

Case history[edit]

On October 12, 2019, McKinney was strangled and placed in a dumpster by two suspects.[1][2] The case opened when McKinney was kidnapped at a birthday party in the evening.[3] During the investigation, Kamille's family had pleaded everyone for the return of Kamille McKinney.[4] Police had release surveillance footage showing two children including Kamille following a man in black clothing.[5] Witness said that a man snatched McKinney to a Toyota SUV.[6] Two people (Devone Stallworth and Derick Irisha Brown) were charged with capital murder for murdering McKinney and could face the death penalty if convicted.[7] According to the suspects, they claim no role in murdering Kamille.[8] According to intelligence company, Leo Technologies, one of the suspects purchased candy in relation to the kidnapping and murder to McKinney.[9]


A prayer vigil was held at city hall to honor McKinney.[10] Her funeral was held at a church and she was buried in Elmwood Cemetery.[7][11] A Change.org petition called for the federal government to sign a bill that will install cameras designed to protect anyone in multi-residential complexes.[12] A school football team had worn a cupcake emblem in her honor as a reference to her nickname.[13] During the 2019 Magic City Classic, the halftime show honored her by waving purple flags and balloons while forming her name.[14]
