May 31st: San Luis Obispo County DA Investigator Hanley spoke to Flores and noted a bruise under the right eye. Flores told Investigator Hanley that the injury was caused when he was playing basketball on SUNDAY May 27, 1996, Memorial Day
Flores friend, Jeremy Moon, said that was not true. Moon told SLO District Attorney Investigator Hanley that Flores had the black eye on SATURDAY, May 26th and he told Moon he did not know how he got the black eye.
June 19th: Flores admits that he lied to investigators about how he got his black eye. He now says he got the black eye by hitting his face on the steering wheel of his truck.
[NOTE] The mugshot below was taken Sunday, May 27th at the Arroyo Grand Police Department. Flores turned himself in on an outstanding warrant for a traffic related offense. You can see his blackened right eye. This photo was taken about 36 hours after Kristin vanished BUT BEFORE FLORES WAS A SUSPECT. Even before Kristin was reported missing. We don't know f0r sure, but we believe Flores turned himself in a calculating move to evade questioning be law enf0rcement. By turning himself in, he would be released on his own recognizance. 'If' Flores was connected to a missing co-ed and it was known there was an outstanding warrant for him, he surely would have been arrested and locked up so that investigators could have much more control in the all-important early hours of Kristin's disappearance.
The $1,000.00 is not located alongside the path that Tim Davis, Cheryl Anderson, Paul Flores and Kristin walked home from the party at 135 Crandall Way.
By 'path' I mean the Perimeter Road, Campus Way and Crandall Way streets nor at least 20 yards on either side.
NOTE: If the cash is not found by Dec 10th (end of classes) then the clues will 'PAUSE' until classes start up again on January 8th.
