KIRA TREVINO MURDER: Search warrant details

Posted: Updated:
ST. PAUL, Minn. (KMSP) -

Kira Trevino didn't show up for work nearly two weeks ago, and newly-released court documents help explain why prosecutors charged her husband in her murder even though her body hasn't been found.

At first, Jeffrey Trevino blamed his wife's disappearance on her mid-life crisis, but police arrested the 39-year-old after finding evidence of a violent crime in his home.

Jeffrey Trevino remains in Ramsey County Jail awaiting trial, but search warrant information released on Thursday show investigators are still scouring for more clues about what happened to his wife.

Investigators have focused intensely on the 12-hour period during which time they believe Jeffrey Trevino killed his wife. Court records show that Jeffrey Trevino used his wife's debit card to put gas in her car at 2 a.m., and surveillance video shows him leaving in the opposite direction of their home.

Court documents also state that Jeffrey Trevino bought cleaning supplies the very next day and before calling police to file a missing person's report.

Kira Trevino's mother also called police to say the couple had been experiencing marital trouble and she worried Jeffrey Trevino may have harmed her daughter. She also told investigators that Kira Trevino had complained about her husband looking in her bank accounts recently.

Police are still seeking information on Kira Trevino's whereabouts. Officials believe her body could be anywhere within 100 miles.

"We know somebody out there has seen her, might have seen something -- something suspicious, something that may be very minute," said Sgt. Paul Paulos, with the St. Paul Police Department. "We really need these answers to the questions we currently have."

Kira Trevino was last seen on Thursday, Feb. 21, and her car was recovered from the Mall of America parking lot four days later.

According to the search warrant, the tow truck operator noticed what looked like blood on the trunk gasket, and the trunk liner was discovered down an embankment not far from where the car was parked.

A search warrant executed at the Trevinos' St. Paul home allowed police to recover two cell phones, an iPad and two computers. Forensic investigators are currently examining those devices for data -- including phone records, texts and even GPS coordinates that could indicate the planning and cover-up of a violent crime.

Yet, investigators say they still have yet to find any type of murder weapon -- no guns, knives or blunt objects -- even though large quantities of blood were found in the home.

Detectives did take a number of personal items, including tooth brushes, clothing and several pairs of shoes.
