Police Remind of Available Help in Light of Fatal Domestic Dispute

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Experts in domestic violence say that help is available for women who need it, in light of a recent murder that may have resulted in a domestic dispute.

The Nueces County Medical Examiner's Office still has not officially released the name of a woman found murdered in her mobile home early Thursday morning. The woman, known to her neighbors as Terri, was found dead inside trailer 13 in the 7800 block of Leopard Street.

Her partner, 35-year old Johnny Flores, is now in jail and charged with her murder.

Flores and Terri moved into the trailer park about six months ago. Over that time, neighbors say the couple fought often.

Experts say that women who need to get out of a stormy relationship should seek out help.

"There are services out there. There are people out there," said Laura Munoz of the Corpus Christi Police Department's Victim Assistance Program. "The Women's Shelter is really good at helping people get out. You just need to take the initiative to say you know what, enough."

Flores remains in jail on a $1 million bond.
