LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) -- Police say the body of a 10-year-old girl has been found in a trash can at a metro Atlanta apartment complex.
Gwinnett County police said in a statement that a man called 911 at 3:43 a.m. Saturday and said he was suicidal. He also said his daughter drank some type of chemical and was dead.
Officers responding to the call found the girl's body in a trash can at the Lawrenceville apartment complex. Police say the girl's body was badly burned.
Police are treating the death as a homicide. They say they were questioning the girl's father and have searched his apartment, but he hadn't been charged. The names of the girl and father weren't immediately released.
The cause of death won't be known until an autopsy is performed.
