Police Set Up Tip Line for Kira Trevino Murder Investigation
St. Paul Police have set up a tip line for the Kira Trevino murder investigation.
Kira Trevino is presumed dead, and her husband, Jeffrey Trevino, was charged in her murder.
Police say they are looking for details on "Where she's at, where she went... and to really complete the puzzle."
At a press conference Friday St. Paul Police said, "We know someone out there might have seen something suspicious and we need answers to the questions we currently have."
Police are also are looking for information on Jeffrey Trevino.
Police specifically want information on Jeffrey Trevino's whereabouts between the hours of 9 p.m. Feb. 21 and 9:45 a.m. Feb. 22.
The tip line will be staffed by an investigator at the St. Paul Police department. The tip line's phone number is 651-560-3277.
Investigators will ask callers questions about the nature of the information, including locations and times.
Police will accept anonymous calls, but they're asking callers to leave their name and number.
Police say they set up the tip line because they need closure to this violent act.
Meanwhile, 39-year-old Jeffrey Trevino is being held at the Ramsey County Jail for allegedly killing Kira.
Court documents released Thursday reveal investigators went through the Trevino house in St. Paul and found blood splattered in the master bedroom, kitchen, living room, hallway, bathroom and basement.
Investigators also discovered someone had tried to hide the blood splatters.
A large section of carpet was cut-out by the BCA and revealed a large stain in the shape of a human head and torso.
Kira Trevino didn't work her scheduled Saturday shift at Mall of America.
According to the criminal complaint, Mall of America security located Kira's car in the back corner of a parking lot Monday. Kira worked at MOA in a store called Delia's.
The tow operator noticed a substance that looked like blood around the trunk opening of the car. There was also a trunk liner near the car with apparent blood on it. The BCA tested the substances and determined they were human blood.
Ramsey County Attorney John Choi said Jeffrey tried to cover-up the murder, and 'law enforcement was there to unravel his schemes.'
Jeffrey was arrested Tuesday.
Although Kira's body has not been found the complaint says there is probable cause to conclude she's dead. That conclusion is based on on the amount of blood police found in her home and car, and the fact that it's uncharacteristic for Kira to go missing without contacting anyone.
Choi said it's very unusual to file charges when a body has not been found, but there was enough evidence in this case.
Trevino's bail was set at $1 million.
