PORT MOODY (NEWS 1130) – No arrests have been made in the homicide of a Port Moody woman. Trina Hunt’s remains were found in Hope over a month ago.
Hunt was reported missing by her husband on Jan. 18. On Saturday, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) confirmed that her body was found on March 29.
IHIT Sgt. Frank Jang said Wednesday he didn’t have an update on the investigation.
“But I’ll just say this about that investigation: We’ve been inundated with calls and comments from the public. We understand the impact that investigation’s had on the Tri-Cities community and beyond, quite frankly,” he said.
Jang said this investigation is far from over.
“This has touched a lot of people,” he said. “Homicide investigations touch all of us, but this one in particular seems to really touch the heartstrings of a lot of people. A lot of people who didn’t know Trina … want to know what happened. People want justice for her, for her family,” he explained.
Over the weekend, people started laying candles, pictures and flowers outside Hunt’s home.
Family, friends and strangers spent several weeks searching for her until police reported Hunt’s remains were found on March 29.
Previously, Port Moody Police said they did not believe foul play was involved in her disappearance. On Saturday, IHIT confirmed the case was reclassified as a homicide.
“We are working extremely hard on that investigation,” Jang said. “It’s an active and ongoing investigation.”
