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.
