UPDATE: Kira’s husband has been arrested and booked into the Ramsey County Jail on suspicion of murder. St. Paul investigators say enough evidence was found inside the couple’s home on the 500 block of Iowa Avenue to suggest a crime was committed there; however, they would not elaborate on what that evidence is, reports KMSP News.
Trevino’s family told FOX 9 News that her cell phone and purse were discovered in the white 2010 Chevy Cobalt, which was carefully backed into a space in a part of the ramp where she didn’t usually park. They added that it struck them as odd since Trevino was not a skilled at parking.
