Mireya McCall, a 5-year-old Angel, died Sunday, June 13, in the 1100 block of East Peck Street in Compton, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

The girl’s mother had reported her missing about 7 a.m. Sunday and directed deputies to a residence, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Lt. Carrie Stuart said. After a routine search of the home, the body was discovered stuffed in a trash bag in a bedroom closet.

According to preliminary information provided by the coroner's office, Mireya suffered sharp force trauma to the neck.

Homicide detectives later arrested the girl's uncle, Julian Carter, as a suspect in the killing, said Deputy Benjamin Grubb.

Family members told KTLA that Carter, a 25-year-old black man, had a history of violent behavior. It was unclear whether he lived in the home with the girl.

"It's a tragedy. That's my joy. That's my everything," Mireya's father, Travon McCall, told KTLA News, fighting back tears.
