Charges have been filed against a suspect wanted in the fatal stabbing of a man on September 27, 2002. The suspect, Alexis Flores is charged with murder. He is accused in the killing of Pete Arthur Gonzales, 18-year-old, of Houston, who suffered multiple stab wounds and died at the scene.
Homicide sergeant reported that Mr. Gonzales’ girlfriend went to his apartment, after not hearing from him, and found him deceased. Gonzales suffered more than 50 stab wounds to his neck and chest. Neighbors reported seeing Gonzales and Flores drinking at the apartment the night before Gonzales was found dead. At the time of the incident, investigators focused on Flores as the suspect in the case, but were not able to file charges until lab analysis on evidence collected from the scene was complete. Investigators collected samples of the blood, which appeared to have come from another individual, and submitted it as evidence. In September 2004, Flores was arrested on unrelated charges in Charlotte, North Carolina, where detectives collected a sample of Flores’ DNA and sent it to HPD investigators. The results of the analysis found the blood evidence collected at the murder scene matched that of Flores’ DNA profile. Flores was charged with the murder on Thursday (Oct. 16). Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Alexis Flores is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
