10-Year-Old Girl’s Body Found In Trash Can
(CNN) — Georgia police discovered a badly burned body of a 10-year-old girl Saturday in an apartment complex’s trash can — pointed out by her father, who was standing nearby.
The grisly episode began with a 911 call around 3:40 a.m. Saturday by a man who said he wanted to commit suicide, the Gwinnett County Police Department said.
While talking to dispatchers, the man indicated there was a dead body with him at the location — his young daughter, he explained, had drank some type of chemical and died.
Gwinnett County police headed to the family’s residence in Lawrenceville, a city of about 29,000 people some 30 miles northeast of Atlanta.
They found the man who’d apparently made the suicide call standing outside a building in an apartment complex. Police said he then directed officers to a trash can in a recreation area.
