Family members believe girl found dead on hiking trail is 9-year-old relative

Relatives of 9-year-old Trinity Love Jones came forward Sunday to share that they believe the girl found dead inside a bag on a hiking trail in Hacienda Heights is the missing girl.

Relatives of the girl gathered Sunday at the memorial site to remember the child. A man who identified himself as Antonio Jones, Trinity's father, said he heard the awful news Sunday. Los Angeles County Sheriff's detectives believe the girl found on the trail is Trinity, relatives told NBC4.

However, investigators said the remains have not yet been positively identified.

Still, family members arrived at the memorial site to mourn the young girl's death, believing that the girl is Trinity. Since finding the remains, LASD detectives have been trying desperately to identify the girl, releasing a sketch of the victim and ruling the death a homicide.

The memorial has been growing in recent days, with family members adding Trinity's picture to the abundance of flowers, balloons and candles on Sunday.
