Tommy Flores Hacks Grandma (Eva Flores)To Death & Shoots Another Woman? - by Legal Pub


A major problem with publicizing gruesome crimes such as Dr. Faughey's murder is that unstable people might imitate the crime. For example, Tommy Flores, a San Antonio man, has been charged with capital murder. Eva Flores, his grandmother, was found hacked to death with a meat cleaver. Supposedly Tommy Flores killed his grandmother because she disapproved of him bringing home Angelita Jones. (According to an affidavit in support of arrest) Tommy Flores, 30, was first arrested Monday on an outstanding warrant. Subsequently, police charged him with the deaths of his grandmother, 74-year-old Eva Flores and a second woman.

Tommy Flores apparently told police that he attacked his grandmother because she disapproved of the woman Flores brought home. Flores and his Grandmother lived on the 220 block of Caddo Street near Interstate 35 and Palo Alto Street on the south side of San Antonio. Eva Flores died of severe cuts to her neck while the second woman was found with a single gunshot wound to the head. Police found a bloody meat cleaver and a .357 Magnum revolver. Police arrested Flores later in the day at an east-side motel on an outstanding arrest warrant. Flores was later charged with capital murder and is being held on $500,000 bond.

Both Eva Flores
and Angelita Jones, mother of five children will be missed by their loved ones. May they rest in peace. Flores, like all suspects is to be considered innocent until proven guilty.

Update 1-3-11: In the fall, Flores plead guilty in exchange for a waiver of the death penalty. Flores is now sentenced to life in prison without the possiblity of parole. Our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of the victims.

First red flag: the man lives with his grandma. Second red flag, he owns a meet cleaver. Third red flag, he has a loaded 357 in the house.Fourth, he apparently needed the services of a hooker.

This guy sounds like he was a walking time bomb. Hope he gets the help in prison that he apparently needs.

Fifth: He thought he was supposed to bring the hooker home . . .

Where would one normally take a hooker? A hotel?

this was my cousin i hung out with everyday..never..did he show signs of being this type of person..one day when this happens to ur family...because in every family somebody loses it.. because there is no perfect family...i'll be telling u guys that u should have seen the red flags...have more sympathy for my aunt please..

Legal Pub said...

To cousin: You make a good point. Families of the accused also become victims. This has to be a very trying and hard time for all of the families.

I think the levity was intended to help other people reading the news to deal with this tragedy. Our brains sometimes rationalize that the victim of a crime should have known better as an escape mechanism so that we don't believe that "this could happen to me."

Sorry for your loss. Sorry for your Aunt. May the deceased, Eva Flores and the other woman, rest in peace.

Hey Tommy Flores Cousin, sorry for your loss. Legal Pub is a place we come and hang out and vent.

What is the name of the woman who was shot?

Is there a memorial donation fund or something you want to publicize?

Hello, my name is samuel alvarez.

and I am The father of the son of "the other woman shot".

I live in corpus christi and my sympathies go out to the Flores Family for their dire loss.

This "hooker" was more than just that she was my confidant, my lover the mother of my children and she was a damn good person she wasn't nameless or faceless, sometimes it turns out that not only do we choose our life but it just might be that life chooses us.

We do what we have to do to get by. just like Tommy, just like my son's mother Angelita, just like Mrs. Flores we are all human and we make mistakes, but Tommy had a choice he didn't have to kill any body.

I am sure that Mrs Flores is loved.
Angie is loved and Tommy is loved as well, this is all a tragic and senseless loss, my heart goes out to the Flores Family.

INKBLOT2008 said...

Her name is Angelita Jones, she has five children she will be missed and she is loved by many.

Ms Calabaza said...

inkblot and cousin,
I know that I speak for most of the commenters on this blog to say we are very sorry for your loss.

Legal Pub said...

Ink blot and cousin:

Thank you, sincerely. This forum is an opportunity to humanize the victims. Too often the public forgets that these are not nameless androids. Rather, they are real people, with real lives and just as importantly family.

As everyone grieves this tragic waste of lives, keep in mind the suffering that has been caused and allow survivors to grieve and allow the deceased to R.I.P.

hey everyone this is me Angelitas sister Ebony Heslip again i am writting now because i am the first person to view her body today feb 24 2008 at about 12:00 noon i dressed my sister for her funeral tuesday as i had said in my previous comment there are two sides to every story as well as this one. what nobody dont know is that while dressing my sister i saw that she had gashes in the palm of her right hand and cuts on her left hand by her thumb and pointer finger on the top side as in defense position i strongly believe that my sister was awoke (so she could not have been shot in her sleep) and tried to help protect eva flores being the loving person she is she could not have been asleep due to her wounds on her hands and that is when she may have contract the lacerations to her hands she also had bruises on her knuckles(as if defending.) Also based on reliable sources that my sister and tommy were seeing one another many friends have called and informed that it was a mutual feeling relationship i would like for any one that has any knowledge or information that would help us find out the other side of the story plz contact us ebony84_1@yahoo.com

Angelita Jones appears to have been in the wrong place at the wrong time. What set Flores off, we may never know the complete truth. What we do know is that the accused and both victims have families that cared very much for them. May Eva Flores and Angelita Jones find the peace they so dearly deserve.

Regardless of his actions Tommy has caused tremendous heartache and loss to his famiy and Angelitas Family as well as to himself. For those that know him as I do it is expecially hard to imagine him doing that to anyone let alone his grandmother that he was so dedicated to. People have called him a monster and a loser. Prior to that day Tommy was one of the most respectful,gentle,kind natured,hard working persons you could ever meet. My prayers are with the Flores Family, Angelitas Family and for Tommy as well God Bless Them All!!

Maybe something snapped in Tommy that day. Who knows? It is at least good to hear someone stick up for him...

i am enraged because tommy had no right to play god with my sister's life he must have snapped yah yah blah blah but angelita was also a loving caring beautiful person that desrved more then the destiny that tommy chose for her she had 5 beautiful children that she cared and loved with all her heart and soul she would have never so called "abandoned" any of her children i just dont understand how people can slander my sisters name and give tommy a slap on the hand he was, is, and will ALWAYS be WRONG, WRONG ,WRONG for taking my Angelita and Eva's life so just because "tommy snapped and so called "dedicated to his grandma" my family no longer has Angelita and the flores family no longer has eva, he took them from this world, he took them from our familys so do you call that loving and caring do you call that gentle he was not gentle on eva when he took the meat cleaver and cut his grandmother that he loved so very much and he was not gentle on the trigger when he shot my sister in the head and some of you people had the nerve to call my sister a "monster " a "monster" has no heart, a "monster doesnt care, a "monster" does not love so therefore tommy did not have no mercy on my sister angelita or eva so why should the law have mercy on him. ebony heslip

Anonymous said...

to angelitas sister,i understand your anger and the rage, but very bad choices were made that morning, angelita sounds likes she put herself in danger quite often and decided to get into the cab with tommy that night. did they know each other? who knows, we will probably never know. you are judging tommy by his alleged actions but at the same time angelita is not accountable for hers? i am sorry for your loss, the true victim in all of this is ms flores.

To the son:

Sorry for your loss. So far, every thing that I have seen points to your mom being a loving mother. It is hard to lose a loved one. Especially a mom. Any where you go, there may be negative comments from people who don't know the individuals who they speak negatively of. I am truly sorry for your loss and of people who make baseless comments. May you find it in your heart to forgive those who speak negatively and may your mom rest in peace.

Why are people calling Angie a monster? I know. It's true. She was a Jerry Springer show. Maybe more Maury than Jerry. She had five kids(period). I was married to her once(no kids, thank KARMA I was cut from her to save myself) and she cheated on me numerous times, slandered me(I maintain innocense to this second) she lied about me(Harvey, she manipulated you and Sam as well, I am innocent!) she stole from me, she forged my name and abandoned me when I needed her most. I shed tears over her when she deserved none. There might be two sides to every story but, there is also the truth Ebony. She put herself in the position and her loved ones paid for it. I wish I had something good to say about her, but I do not.

This is Zebadiah Angelita Mullenax. I am 12 1/2 years old. I'm the daughter of Angelita Jones, it is sad to see the disrespect and judgemental comments left here about my mother. I never met her, only when I was a baby. And I would never say anything like that, if you never met her keep you rude comments to yourself! She loved all her children and at the time of her death she had been trying to clean up her act, she had been sober for a couple months and she deserves to be notice for something more than a "Retarded Hooker!" She was a loving caring person. She might have been a hooker but what else is women sapossed to do when you have no money and your living out on the streets with one of your children!? Atleast she tried. She deserves the same respect we give eachother! Get your facts straight if you can't, then SHUT UP! No offence to yall. But for real its DISRESPECTFUL and DISCUSTING get a life and quit disrespecting others. I will always love my mother, and so will her family she was very loved and chariahed. My respect goes out to the Florez family- My mother was the cause of this and I am sorry. But it was Tommy's choise and he still had NO RIGHT for killing ither Angelita or Eva!

He got life. I will be putting a couple hundred bucks in his account and getting him a few magazine subscriptions for whacking the hooker. She was a piece of shit. The hooker was a thief, a cheat, and a liar. You can try and justify her actions all you want, however no matter how much you polish a ball of shit it's still just a ball of shit. You can say comments on this page are filled with ignorance but, the truth is what it is.

My name is Leah Key and i posted one of those nasty statements above. I do not regret it only because i know who Angie was. I knew Angie by many names, Angie, Angelita, Acausha, Mystery and by far the funniest and most fitting is "Retarded Hooker". I was at a gathering recently where the above statements in this blog were read aloud and there was no sympathy in the room, only gales of laughter. Only one person there did not know of the "exploits" of this retarded hooker however she does now and she went straight for David, hugged him and promptly told him the "retarded hooker" got what she deserved(fact). Love Leah xxxooo

Anonymous said...

Leah: What has her children and relatives done to you? Why hurt them?

So Angelita was less than an ideal spouse. And so she was perhaps less than ideal in her professional dealings with others. Okay. We get it.

But now she is dead. Nothing of benefit is spread by pointing out a corpses flaws. Please let it go. Live and let die.

Anonymous said...

Wow, This Angie chick inspired a lot of hatred and has been gone for a while now. She must have really done some damage and left a lot of peole in her wake. For those of you continuing to spew about her, it must have been pretty serious, the pain she caused must have been tremendous. I understand it is tough to forgive. For those of you who can't understand why there is this unwillingness to forgive and forget, you must realize that wars were fought over less. Wars are being fought now over less. She brought this on and I believe that if they are willing to bad mouth her in death maybe she is in a better place. Apparently, what she left behind isn't worth what we think it is.

Well, she did leave behind kids and they are worth something! In fact every human is priceless.

Its been about two and a half years since my Evas death. We all miss her. Tommy was always the guy making people laugh , smile , he was the funny guy. Tommy never showed us any reason for us to be scarred , or worried for our grandmothers sake. We all loved eachother very much. like any other family. It may, or may have not been tommy who did this, but things happen, even when you do not know the reason being. Tommy and Eva will always be in our prayers. Tommy will always be our funny , older cousin. Eva will always be the woman who put the sunlight in our days. Even though things happened the way they did, it made our family stronger than ever. We thank God for helping us through this journey. Thank you.
