ST. PAUL, MN - We might be one step closer to finding out what happened to a D.C. Everest grad who disappeared last month.

People looking for Kira Steger-Trevino found a bloody pillow during a search last weekend.

Investigators say the blood matches the DNA of Steger-Trevino. A volunteer searcher found the pillow, along with a pillow case, sports bra, shirt and sponge near Keller Lake, Minnesota.

They started looking there after a woman told police she was driving by Keller Lake early on Feb. 22 when she saw two men struggling with something the size of a person.

The new evidence will add to the complaint against Steger-Trevino's husband, Jeffery Trevino. He remains charged with second-degree murder.

Steger-Trevnio vanished February 21st. Her husband was charged after blood was found in their St. Paul home.

RHINELANDER - Childhood friends are no business partners thanks to a class project.

Three Lakes High School students Tom Stuckart, Jack Connelly and Stephen Gensler had the idea of making their screen hose last summer and started making the prototype when school started in September.

"It's amazing what a little bit of hard work can actually get you. The community has been awesome supporting us and things like that.

 Just having the opportunity to come here and speak is awesome," said Stuckart. 

On Thursday their business JTS Waste products became official as an LLC.
