ST. PAUL —
Investigators also found a large stain shaped like a human head and torso under a large section of bedroom carpet that they cut away, and the stain tested positive for blood, investigators said. They said the amount of blood spatter is consistent with "more than one forceful blow."
Ramsey County Attorney John Choi said Trevino hasn't told police where his wife's body might be, but he is confident he can prove she was killed, even without a body.
"All the schemes and his efforts to cover up his crime have been foiled by a lot of hard work by the investigators involved in this case," Choi said.
On Wednesday, police in Bloomington recovered video from the Mall of America that showed Kira Trevino's car entering the parking lot Friday morning. The video isn't clear enough to show who was in the car, but it shows someone at the back of the vehicle throwing what appears to be a trunk liner away from the car.
The person then got into a cab, which had a GPS tracker, and was dropped off near Trevino's home, the complaint said.
Kira Trevino's car was found Monday in the back corner of a parking lot at the Mall of America. A tow truck operator saw what looked like blood around the trunk. Police also found a trunk liner near the car, which later tested positive for blood.
Before he was arrested, Trevino told police he and his wife left their home Friday morning to run errands. But records show she did not go to the gym or a tanning salon, as Trevino said.
Family members and friends told police that Kira Trevino had been unhappy and had talked about moving out over the past few months.
