Body Of Missing MN Woman Found In Mississippi River

Friday, May 10th, 2013 at 8:01 am

Homicide detectives in St. Paul held a news conference on Thursday afternoon where they confirmed a body found in the Mississippi River is that of Kira Trevino, the woman missing since February.

Detectives told the Associated Press that the body was found at about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday under a barge south of the Robert Street Bridge.

For months, police and volunteers have been searching for Trevino. The 30-year-old St. Paul woman, who is originally from the Wausau area, has been missing since February.

Trevino was reported missing by her husband Jeffery Trevino back on February 24. He told investigators that he’d last seen his wife on Friday, February 22 when she left their St. Paul home to run errands and go to work at a store in the Mall of America.

Less than a week later, Jeffery Trevino was arrested and charged with 2nd degree murder after police found “copious amounts of blood” and evidence of extensive clean-up in their home.
