A 10-year-old’s burned body was found in a trash can at a Gwinnett County apartment complex early Saturday morning and police have charged her dad and stepmother with her death.
Mr. Eman Moss and Mrs. Tiffany Moss were charged with felony murder, first-degree cruelty to children and concealing a body in the death of Emani Moss, according to Gwinnett County police.
The call came in at 3:43 a.m. from 1131 Veranda Chase Drive near Lawrenceville. A man told a 911 operator that he was planning to commit suicide, police spokesman Sgt. Brian Doan said.
“While talking to dispatchers the male stated that there was a dead body with him at the location,” Sgt. Doan said. “He stated that his 10-year-old daughter had drank some type of chemical and was deceased.”
Officers arrived on scene and found the man standing in the breezeway of building 1100. He pointed to a trash can in the recreation area for the apartment complex.
“Officers went over to the trash can and located the badly burned body of the child,” Sgt. Doan said.
Officers checked the apartment but found no one else inside. Both the dad and stepmom were transported to the Gwinnett County jail where they remained Saturday night.
