    so often this happens and we end up forgetting about our unidentified. i hope that is not the case here too. her condition leaves me wondering if she was not outside all that much so i have to ask who is missing this child? maybe nobody who would give up the individuals who did this.

    the uid cases are new for me. i mainly stick to the missing but this poor girl just dumped like that took my attention. tragic.

    BREAKING: Little girl whose body was found dumped in Hacienda Heights has been identified by extended family members as Trinity Jones.
    There is a lot happening right now and many questions still need to be answered.
    Meanwhile, the first piece of the puzzle is now in place.
    This baby girl, formerly known as Jane Doe #11, is Trinity.
    She has a name.
    She has a story.
    And someone is responsible for her death.
    I'll have more tomorrow...

    Family IDs girl found on Hacienda Heights trail; officials not confirming yet

    HACIENDA HEIGHTS, Calif. (KABC) -- A family has come forward saying they know the identity of the girl whose body was found on a hiking trail in Hacienda Heights.

    Family members have put up a makeshift memorial for the girl near where a body was found in a rollaway duffel bag on March 5.


    Family members contacted Eyewitness News to identify the girl as 9-year-old Trinity Love Jones.

    The memorial at the site adorned with balloons and teddy bears declares "Rest In Heaven Our Trinity Love Jones."

    Authorities have not yet confirmed the family's statements and are still working to officially identify the victim. They have released a sketch in an effort to develop information from the public.

    Family members who gathered at the site were too distraught to immediately offer more details about the girl or what may have happened to her.

    Her body was found that morning on a hiking trail south of Hacienda Boulevard and Glenmark Drive. Officials said it appeared the body had been pushed off the edge of the roadway down an embankment onto an equestrian trail within 24 hours of the discovery by local workers doing maintenance on the trail.

    She was pronounced dead at the scene and the coroner's office later ruled her death a homicide.

    Anyone with information is asked to call the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500. Anonymous information can be provided through Crime Stoppers at (800)222-TIPS.

    Relatives of 9-year-old Trinity Love Jones came forward Sunday to share that they believe the girl found dead inside a bag on a hiking trail in Hacienda Heights is the missing girl.

    Relatives of the girl gathered Sunday at the memorial site to remember the child. A man who identified himself as Antonio Jones, Trinity's father, said he heard the awful news Sunday. Los Angeles County Sheriff's detectives believe the girl found on the trail is Trinity, relatives told NBC4.

    Trinity Love Jones: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

    Emiel Hunt, who says on Facebook that he is in a relationship with a woman who appears to be Trinity’s mother per other social media posts, is currently being held in the Los Angeles County Jail on $2 million bail and a felony accusation, online records show. However, it’s not clear whether that March 9, 2019 arrest is related or not to Trinity’s death, and the specific charge is not detailed.

    Meanwhile, the arrest of Hunt is raising eyebrows due to the large bail amount. Authorities have not commented on any possible connection, though.

    the father coming forward has surprised me. i didn't consider it being one parent and a boyfriend/girlfriend.

    was her weight thin for a 9 year old? thinking dad may not have seen his daughter for a little while.all speculation at this time tho.

    It’s not clear whether the child was alive when placed in the bag, authorities said. They would not comment on whether there were any items in the bag along with the girl’s body.

    It’s not clear whether the child was reported missing. The National Center for Missing and Endangered, Inc. wrote on Facebook:

    “Little girl who was dumped beside the road in a black suit case in Hacienda Heights has been identified as 9 year old Trinity Jones***

    BREAKING: Little girl whose body was found dumped in Hacienda Heights has been identified by extended family members as Trinity Jones.

    There is a lot happening right now and many questions still need to be answered.

    Meanwhile, the first piece of the puzzle is now in place.

    This baby girl, formerly known as Jane Doe #11, is Trinity.

    She has a name.

    She has a story.

    And someone is responsible for her death.”

    Asked by a comment thread writer if the girl was reported missing before her death, the center wrote, “we do not have that information all the information we have is posted above.”

    An extended family member claimed on Facebook that Trinity was “not reported missing because her mother kept her away from us. Every time we asked about her she would say she was okay. She enrolled her in home school so she basically was with the mother and boyfriend the whole time…we all reached out, we called dcfs. nobody would listen.”

    Could be either, I suppose. Not like she was the weight of a 5-6 year old. I guess we'll have to see as more info is released.
    She didn't appear malnourished in photos, but we all know how fast things can change.

    A man identified by the victim's family members as the boyfriend of a woman whose slain 9-year-old daughter was found partially stuffed in a duffel bag in Hacienda Heights has been charged with murder, authorities announced Tuesday.

    Emiel Hunt, 38, appeared briefly in court on Tuesday morning but did not enter a plea. His arraignment has been postponed until April 16.

    Hunt was arrested on Saturday after being found sleeping in his vehicle, which was parked near the San Diego International Airport, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said.

    He was booked at the Norwalk Sheriff's Station later that day, inmate records show. His bail was set at $2 million.

    Hunt is accused of killing Trinity Loves Jones on or about March 1, roughly four days before her body was discovered, according to a news release from the L.A. County District Attorney's Office.

    Family members of the young victim told KTLA on Monday that Hunt is the boyfriend of Trinity's mother, Taquesta Graham.

    They said that Graham was also detained as a "person of interest" in the case and was being held on $2 million bail. It was unclear whether she was in custody, however, as a search of L.A. County inmate records on Tuesday morning did not show anyone matching her name.

    Trinity Love Jones is seen in a photo released by the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.

    Graham is a registered sex offender, having been convicted in 2009 of enticing a minor female for prostitution, according to the Megan's Law website. She was last released in 2016 and reported to be living in Santa Fe Springs.

    Hunt, meanwhile, has a prior child abuse conviction in San Diego County from 2005, according to the criminal complaint.

    He faces a possible maximum sentence of 50 years to life in prison if convicted on the murder charge.

    Authorities just confirmed his arrest on Tuesday, exactly one week after Trinity's body was found by L.A. County maintenance workers at the bottom of an embankment.

    One of the workers, who did not want to be identified, told KTLA in a brief but emotional interview on Monday that they were trimming trees in the area when they noticed a duffel bag.

    "We seen the little girl's head, but at that point, we thought it was a little boy because you couldn't really see, like, everything," he said. "She was covered up with grass, like the bush was kind of covering her hair, and then she was wrapped up in a blanket, and she was stuffed in a duffel bag."

    He described the girl's face as being peaceful, almost as if she were asleep.

    Fighting back tears, the man told KTLA the first thing he thought of when they made the grim discovery was his own children. He became overcome with emotion at that point and the interview ended.

    Trinity's death has been ruled a homicide by the county coroner's office, though authorities remain tight-lipped about how she died. Investigators have indicated they found no obvious signs of trauma on her body.

    In a statement Sunday, sheriff's investigators said more information would be released later this week during a news conference. They did not specify a date.
