Since establishing a tip line for information in the murder of Kira Trevino, St. Paul police have followed up on more than 50 leads, but investigators still haven't found the 30-year-old woman's body.
Investigators have searched specific areas in some cases, including a tip that led police to a set of footprints in an unusual area. It was later discovered that the prints belonged to a fox trapper.
With the new snowfall across the state, investigators are asking once again for any community members to think about any possibilities of where Trevino's remains might be concealed. Examples of areas might include:
- Nature centers
- Wooded areas
- Industrial dumpsters
- Construction site dumpsters or areas
- Low-lying areas or gullies that now might be drifted over with new fallen snow
The tip line number -- 651-560-3277 --was established on Friday, March 1 and continues to be staffed by investigators as much as possible. If tip caller leave a voicemail, an investigator will follow up on the call within hours. The tip line also accepts text messages.
Any tips are welcome, however, the information would ideally include:
- Nature of the information
- Any pertinent locations connected to the tip
- Any pertinent times connected to the tip
- Any possible contact information for the person leaving the information
- Anonymous tips with specific information are welcome
