Tiffany Moss Starves Emani Moss to Death
In Early November 2013, Police from Gwinnett County found the body of a 10-year-old girl after they responded to her father’s 911 call. According to the police, Mr. Eman, the girl’s dad was threatening suicide. He allegedly told them that his daughter had died after drinking some type of chemical.
According to the police officers, they went to the scene and located a man standing in the breezeway of building 1100. The man reportedly pointed them to a metal trash can in the recreation area. They found the badly burned body of the girl, inside the trash can.

Tiffany Moss Trial
At the trial, a discovery was made, that Tiffany enclosed the little girl to a bedroom in her apartment for days.
According to a medical examiner, Emani lived in waste in her bed because she had become too weak to move after staying hungry for days.
The jury discovered in the trial that the husband was in on her evil plot. She had apparently sent her husband text messages about her evil plans. She had also sent him pictures of the delicious food she had prepared for him and their two children.
It took several weeks for Emani to die of starvation. Once she was dead, the couple packed her already thin body in a trash can and set it ablaze.
At trial, she represented herself and mounted no defense. She chose to make no opening statement or closing argument. She also called no witnesses. The last time a death-penalty defendant in Georgia represented himself, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, was in 2015. Jamie Hood, who chose to serve as his own lawyer, was convicted of the murder of an Athens-Clarke County police officer and other offenses. Luckily, his decision to play an active role in his defense, escaped the death penalty when the jury sentenced him to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
