Hoglund said investigators believe the girl was left in light brush adjacent to the equestrian trail in the late evening hours of March 3, about a day-and-a-half before her body was found. "I just want justice".

Hunt, who is reportedly the boyfriend of Trinity's mother, was arrested on Saturday after police found him sleeping in his auto in a parking lot near the San Diego airport, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said. The sheriff's department later released a composite sketch of the girl, along with photos of a pink long-sleeve top with the words "Future Princess Hero" and gray trousers with pandas on them that she was wearing when her body was found.

A GoFundMe page created by Trinity's uncle describes her as "a very loving and caring little girl". "Although the Coroner's Office determined the death to be a homicide, the cause of death is being withheld".

A 39-year-old man has been charged in the murder of a nine-year-old girl found stuffed in a duffel bag in the USA last week.

A day after the gruesome discovery, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department released a sketch that showed a young girl wearing a pink shirt that read "Future Princess Hero" and trousers with a panda print.
