TPD Asks for Assistance in March 2019 Homicide Case

TEMPLE, TX (February 11, 2020) –The Temple Police Department is asking the community for any information regarding a March 2019 incident that resulted in the tragic death of 33-year-old Keila Ruby Flores.

Since the incident, TPD investigators have been working diligently to solve this case, but have exhausted all possible leads. Now, the department is calling on the community for any information that could lead to closure for the victim’s family.

“This case has been a difficult one,” Interim Chief Tobin said. “In a case like this where there is still very little information after a long period of time, it’s hard to pinpoint a possible suspect. We’re hoping that someone in the community can come forward with information. We want to do right by this woman who lost her life – for her family and her children. Any little detail can be a huge help in solving this case.”

On Saturday, March 9, 2019, TPD responded to a call near the 2600 block of IH-35 between exits 303 and 305. The caller indicated that he and four other passengers were traveling northbound, when a large rock was thrown from the overpass, broke through the vehicle’s windshield, and struck Ms. Flores. She was transported to Baylor Scott and White Medical Center – Temple, where she succumbed to her injuries the following morning.

If anyone has any information concerning this unfortunate incident, please contact Temple Police Department at (254) 298-5500. Tips can also be sent through Bell County Crime Stoppers at, through the P3tips App or by calling 254-526-TIPS (8477).
