Two in custody after a 5-year-old’s body was found in a dumpster

MILWAUKEE, WI – In a chilling turn of events, a Milwaukee dumpster became the center of a grim discovery on Thursday – the body of young Prince McCree, just 5 years old. The news sent shockwaves through the community, coming just a day after he was reported missing by the local police.

While the cause of Prince’s death is still under scrutiny, preliminary evidence suggests a possible homicide. The unsettling fact that the boy’s body was discovered a mere mile from his family’s home has heightened the sense of unease among the residents.

Prince’s last known whereabouts trace back to his home on Wednesday morning. As dusk approached and there was no word from him, his parents, consumed with anxiety, began knocking on neighbors’ doors in hopes of finding a clue. Their plight was highlighted by state Sen. LaTonya Johnson, who voiced her concerns to local newspapers.

In the wake of the boy’s disappearance, law enforcement agencies worked quickly, issuing a media alert Wednesday night. With the tragic discovery of Prince’s remains, their investigative lens has zeroed in on two individuals – an adult male, aged 27, and a teenager.

This incident, deeply unsettling and tragic, underscores the need for increased vigilance and community solidarity in ensuring the safety of the city’s youngest residents.
