Incident at 9500 East Avenue L
October 16, 2006 -- Houston
police are investigating the death of a man found at 9500 East
Avenue L about 4:30 p.m. on Saturday (October 14).
The victim, Enriguez Hernandez 'Henry' Flores,
53, of 8219 Peekskill had a fractured skull, but the cause of
death is still being determined by the Harris County Medical Examiner's
HPD Homicide Division Sergeant J.W. Belk and
Officer M.J. Miller reported:
The victim's mother received a call from an unknown
Hispanic female and two Hispanic males who explained that her
son was drunk and passed out in his car.
The victim's mother provided the three with directions to her
house on East Avenue L so they could drop off her son. The males
and the female, driving the victim's car, arrived at the victim's
mother's house about 12:30 p.m.
Flores, whose family said was an alcoholic, was
apparently unconscious in the
back seat of his car where he was left by his mother, who thought
he was drunk
and would sleep it off. She checked on him about 4:30 p.m. and
found her son
dead. Flores' wallet and possible cash were missing, but other
and a credit card were found in his pocket. Flores was last seen
(October 13) just before midnight leaving a bar named The Big
Dawg Saloon in
the 8800 block of Almeda Genoa.
The vehicle driven by the two males was described
as an old blue 1960s model pickup truck with wooded side rails.
Investigators would like to interview the persons who possibly
tried to help the victim by taking him to his mother's house.
