California Girl Found Dead in Duffel Bag Identified as 9 Year Old Trinity Love Jones; Two Persons of Interest in Murder Detained

LOS ANGELES – California police identified a dead girl’s body found in a duffel bag along a trail Sunday.

Investigators discovered Trinity Love Jones, 9, dead at the bottom of an embankment in unincorporated Hacienda Heights, California, Tuesday. Two persons of interest were detained, according to a Sunday statement from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD).

“Although the Coroner’s Office determined the death to be a homicide, the cause of death is being withheld,” LASD’s statement reported.

Investigators said Jones’s 55-pound body was in the bottom of an embankment for less than two days before she was found by police, the Los Angeles Timesreported. More detectives are being assigned to the case.
