Hacienda Heights, CA– Authorities have identified the girl found in a black duffle bag along a hiking trail in Hacienda Heights. She has been identified as 9-year-old Trinity Love Jones.
Shortly after family identified the young girl, two arrest were made as persons of interest, although their names are currently being withheld.
According to Jones father during a Facebook livestream last night, he had not seen Trinity in close to a year.
Antonio Marreal Marquise Jones stated that Trinity had been bouncing from family members and was living with his baby-mother’s sister.
“Rather than give my daughter to me, they would rather give [Trinity] back to her mother and obviously crazy boyfriend.”
Jones said that he reached out multiple times in attempts to see Trinity, but was denied by extended family members. In his Facebook live stream, Jones ask women not to keep children from their fathers out of spite.
“Don’t hold somebody kids from them just because you don’t like them. Something could happen to the kid any day. Then all you would be able to say is what Trinity auntie said to me. Sorry Tone, I didn’t know. Sorry Tone, I didn’t know. This the same auntie that made it very, very difficult for me to see my daughter. Now you tell me you have all these pictures you can send me of Trinity. Before, I didn’t have no pictures of her.”
