The victim's sister Magnolia Olivo said her brother was her best friend. 

"He's my social butterfly. He was the more energetic person. Wherever he went, it was hyped up. 'Let's have fun! I want to get to know you! You're my best friend now!'" said Olivo. "Now they tell me at [his] work it's silent."

She said Flores was a father who worked for a living as a plumber.

She said the night of the murder, her brother tried to defend himself. She said it seemed the suspects just wanted his truck.
