"Person Of Interest" In Trimby Death

Decatur – Illinois State Police have not released much information into the death of 43 year old Tracy Trimby.  But they have told the victim's daughter there is a "person of interest" in their investigation.

“I said do you guys have anybody in custody, or of interest, or anything,” Lindsey Cisco of Decatur told WAND's Doug Wolfe.  “And he told me that he cannot tell me too much but that he could tell me that he had a person of interest.”  Cisco was referring to a conversation she had with the state police regarding her mother's death.

The remains of Tracy Trimby, of Decatur, were found in a garden shed in Rochester in Sangamon County on July 19th.  As of Thursday there have been no arrests.

Cisco was taken from Trimby by DCFS at the age of seven.  She was later adopted by a Springfield family and had not seen Trimby since she was 9.

In recent years Cisco has been trying to find Trimby.  An aunt told her she heard Trimby was identified as the victim in the Rochester case.  Cisco said she then saw TV news reports on her mother's homicide.

“The only thing I can tell you is whoever murdered my mom needs to come to justice, period,”  Trimby said.  “She deserves that.”

Trimby's remains had apparently been in the shed in Rochester for several years.
