Crime Stoppers to pay $2,500 reward in Flores homicide case

A Crime Stoppers tip in the Daniel Flores homicide case has earned a Wichita person a $2,500 reward. This is the first time the non-profit organization has paid a reward at its new, higher maximum reward amount.

The body of 25-year-old Flores was found early in the morning on Monday, Feb. 10, at his place of employment. Police reported that he had suffered severe, blunt-force trauma.

Gordon Bassham, executive director of the Wichita Crime Commission, said the Crime Stoppers tip that solved the case was phoned in at 11:33 a.m. Feb. 12. “That tip led to the arrest of a Wichita man around 10:20 p.m. on the same day.”

Crime Stoppers is a division of the Crime Commission.

“The maximum reward paid for tips was raised from $1,000 to $2,500 in October, 2013. The decision to pay the maximum $2,500 reward was made at the April 14 monthly meeting of the Crime Stoppers Advisory Committee.

“The Flores homicide case is the fifth major case solved by Crime Stoppers in the last 12 months,” Bassham said. Other cases include the Jordan Turner homicide, the robbery of Danielle Zimmerman and the hit-and-run fatalities of Lloyd Ferguson and Maria Martinez.

Crime Stoppers of Wichita/Sedgwick County was founded in 1980 as a way for citizens to safely and anonymously report criminal activity. It relies on donations from the public and local businesses for its funding.

“It’s important for the public to know that without their support, Crime Stoppers would not exist, let alone be successful in helping solve crimes like the murder of Mr. Flores,” said Bassham.

Tips to Crime Stoppers may be called in to its 24-hour tip line, 316-267-2111; by cell phone text messages to CRIMES, (274637) and beginning the message with TIP217; or online at www.WichitaCrimeStoppers.com. All ways are anonymous and no one will ask the tipster’s name.
