Early Saturday morning, Eman Moss called 911 saying he was suicidal and told dispatchers there was a dead body with him at his home. Moss said his 10 year old daughter Emani Moss drank some unknown chemical and died.
Gwinnett County Police responded to the apartments on Veranda Chase Drive unincorporated Lawrenceville, Ga just before 4am Saturday. There, police met the father in the breezeway of the 1100 building. He pointed to a trash can in an outdoor area of the apartment complex. When officers opened the trash can, they found the badly burned body of the young girl.
After investigation, police arrested and charged the father Eman and his wife, Tiffany Moss-- the girl's stepmother-- with felony murder, cruelty to children in the first degree, and concealing a body.
They were both booked into the Gwinnett County Detention Center Saturday afternoon.
