Bureau Offers Reward in Cordell Homicide Case from 2007
OSBI is offering up to a $10,000 reward on information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the death of Melissa Flores. The young mother was last seen January 27, 2007, in Cordell. Her vehicle was discovered at her former boyfriend’s home, the father of one of her children, in Cordell. Several personal items were left inside the car. The 27-year-old woman was supposed to pick up her children from a relative’s home on January 27th.
The Washita County Sheriff’s Office requested OSBI assistance in the missing person’s case that developed into a homicide case. So far, agents have conducted numerous interviews, search warrants, and polygraphs. Witnesses have also been subpoenaed before a state multi-county grand jury.
“We believe Melissa was murdered and her body dumped somewhere. Agents and other law enforcement have searched many areas in the region for her remains,” Jessica Brown, OSBI PIO, says.
If anyone has information on this case, please contact the OSBI by calling 1-800-522-8017.
