Another year passes for two unsolved murders
Yet another year has passed for two of Wilson County’s unsolved homicides.
July 19 marks five years since 50-year-old Sylvia Perez Clark was beaten and strangled in her home on Twin Oaks Drive near La Vernia in 2009. Assistant District Attorney Audrey Louis of the 81st Judicial District said,“It is still under investigation by the Texas Rangers and has not been turned over to our office for prosecution.”
Exactly 11 years before Clark’s murder, 66-year-old Gloria Flores was found shot to death behind her house near the corner of F.M. 1303 and C.R. 155 north of Floresville.
“On the Flores case, we have received no new evidence or information,” Louis said.
Investigators previously said that in both cases, the victims likely knew their attackers.
“The families of Mrs. Flores and Mrs. Clark deserve answers and justice,” Louis said. “We ask anyone with information to please call the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office or the Texas Rangers.”
