Charges have been filed as of Tuesday against the main suspect in the death of the little beautiful girl Trinity Jones who’s body was discovered in a duffel bag located on a hiking trail.
Relatives of the victim say the two people in custody are Jones' mother, Taquesta Graham, and her boyfriend, Emiel Lamar Hunt. According to authorities, Graham is in jail on an unrelated warrant. Each is being held in on a $2 million bond, and Hunt is scheduled to make an appearance in a Pomona courtroom Tuesday morning where he is expected to be charged in connection to Trinity's death.
In a statement, the Department of Children and Family services said “We are deeply saddened by the news reported of the tragic death of the child found on a Hacienda Heights hiking trail. In response to your request, DCFS is unable to provide information at this time. As you may know, state law protects the confidentiality of records for all children and families that come to the attention of child protective services, and prohibits confirming whether a child or family has been involved with the department. These laws are intended to protect the privacy of any siblings or family members and to respect sensitive family matters. The highest priority for the Department of Children and Family Services is the safety and wellbeing of the children in Los Angeles County. Our mission to protect children is one we share with our partners in law enforcement and the community. We continue to collaborate toward our shared vision of ensuring every child is able to grow up in a safe and loving home.”
