Police hope someone will recognize this.
Police are looking for the public's help in identifying a woman stabbed to death on the southeast side Sunday night.

The woman was found with multiple stab wounds in the Broadway Park Apartments in the 2500 block of Broadway about 11:45 p.m.; she was taken to Ben Taub Hospital where she died.

Police released the picture to the right of the victim's ring and finger tattoo.

Anyone with information in this case or on the female's identity is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.

Update: Police say they are looking for Mario Alberto Garcia-Trejo, 29, as a person of interest in the case, saying he was Flores' boyfriend.

"Investigators are also looking for Garcia-Trejo's car, a 2002 Gray Ford Escape, unknown license plate, believed to have been sold to an unknown individual by a person known only as 'Cachis,'" HPD says.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
