Officials have identified the 9-year-old girl whose body was discovered in a duffel bag near a Los Angeles-area hiking trail last week. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said its coroner had identified the child as Trinity Love Jones, who lived in Los Angeles County. The girl’s body was found stuffed into a black duffel bag on March 5 near the hiking trail in Hacienda Heights. Her death has been ruled as a homicide, but the sheriff’s department hasn’t disclosed the exact cause of death. Authorities said “the overwhelming response from the news media and tips received from the public” had helped to identify the girl. The case drew widespread attention after authorities released a sketch of Jones in the clothes she was found in: a pink shirt that said “future princess hero” and gray pants with pandas on them. Two persons of interest were being held for questioning Sunday.
