Police Report Uncovers Possible Connection Between Accused Killer, Murder Victim

Marshall Police say inside this home, it was a crime scene like they'd never seen.

According to the police report, officers found Homero Hernandez on the downstairs bathroom floor, "bound with cords and he had severe injuries to his head and body."

The report adds that Homero was stabbed with a knife, and struck on the head with an unknown object. 

While family members prepare for Homero's funeral, they're left with the sad reality that the suspected killer, Orlando Flores, was someone Homero may have known.

According to the police report, cell phone records from Homero's phone show calls made to a "Felipe Flores" in Grand Prairie, where police say Orlando Flores may have relatives.

Police also tell KLTV 7 Orlando could also have family in Houston, adding that last Thursday, a bus ticket from Houston to Marshall was purchased with Homero's debit card.

Homero's brother-in-law, Danny Romero says "There's no doubt that he was trying to help him."

"We would get on his case for that but you know, that's what he wanted to do," said John Munoz, Homero's uncle.

Homero's sister also asks that anyone who may now where their loved one's suspected killer is to come forward.

"If anyone has any information, or if you've seen anything or know anything about my

brother's crime, please call the police. It is very important please...it was a very ugly crime."

The Funeral Service for Homero Hernandez is set for tomorrow at 3pm at Downs Funeral Home in Marshall.
