A search of the California home of a cold case murder investigation has yielded circumstantial evidence pointing to the nature of the crime.
A search of the San Pedro home belonging to Paul Flores who is accused of killing Kristin Smart has yielded homemade videos prosecutors say depict the suspect raping an intoxicated woman, along with ‘rape fantasy’ pornography.
California college student Kristin Smart was killed in 1996 during an attempted rape by a fellow student and the suspect’s father helped hide her body, the San Luis Obispo County district attorney said Wednesday.
Paul Flores, the initial suspect in the disappearance of the 19-year-old freshman, in 25 years has gone from being a “person of interest” to a “suspect” to “the prime suspect” and, now, defendant.
Flores, the last person to see Smart, has been under suspicion from the earliest days of her disappearance.
A separate search warrant executed against the home of his 80-year-old father, Ruben Flores, earlier this year turned up likely traces of human blood and a patch of dug-up dirt beneath a deck, where authorities believe Smart’s body was once buried.
Paul Flores, now 44, is charged with murder in the commission of a rape or attempted rape for the 1996 killing of Smart, a 19-year-old California Polytechnic State University student.

In February 2020, police executed a search warrant at Paul’s San Pedro, California, home, and seized electronic devices containing homemade videos and rape porn, prosecutors say 

According to the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney, Dan Dow, Flores killed Smart in his dorm room.
The son and father were arrested Tuesday after years of investigations and searches that recently led to evidence connected to Smart’s killing.
Paul Flores will be charged with first-degree murder and his father, Ruben Flores, will be charged with accessory after murder for helping him conceal Smart’s body, which has never been found.
Kristin Smart, of Stockton, a 19-year-old freshman was last seen May 25, 1996, while returning to her dorm at California Polytechnic State University campus in San Luis Obispo after an off-campus party.
She was inebriated at the time and Flores, a fellow freshman at the school reportedly, had offered to walk her home.
Flores killed Smart in his dorm room, Dow said. Investigators, who launched a renewed search Tuesday at his father’s property in nearby Arroyo Grande, believe they know where the body was buried.
Dow urged the public to come forward with any information they may have about the killing or other crimes Paul Flores may have committed.
In more recent years, Paul Flores frequented bars around his home in the Los Angeles area of San Pedro and may have committed other sexual assaults, Dow said.

Two searches were carried out in February and March 2020 as part of the investigation into Smart’s death

Ruben Flores, 80, was charged with accessory after the fact for allegedly helping his son conceal Smart’s body, which was never found.
Both men pled not guilty to their respective charges in April, and the elder Flores was released on bail.
During a court hearing Wednesday, a Luis Obispo County prosecutor presented evidence obtained during a February 2020 search of Paul Flores’ San Pedro home.

The father and son duo of Paul Flores, 44, [left] and Ruben Flores, 80, [right] both are charged as perpetrator and accessory after the fact respectively in the rape and murder of Kristin Smart 25 years ago

Deputy District Attorney Christopher Peuvrelle told the court that detectives recovered homemade videos from the suspect’s computer that show him allegedly raping an intoxicated woman.

Other videos found stored on electronic devices that were seized during the search allegedly depict Flores having sex with and sodomizing women who drift in and out of consciousness, reported San Luis Obispo Tribune.
One of the women in the recordings appears with a red ball gag in her mouth.
Police also found a pornographic film titled ‘Real Drunken Girls Drugged and Raped While Passed Out.’ According to the prosecutor, the videos were stored in a computer file labelled ‘Practice.’
The search further yielded ‘fetishized rape fantasy porn’ and prescription drug medications that could be used as date rape drugs, especially when taken with alcohol.

‘Paul Flores is a defendant who likes to rape and drug intoxicated women,’ Peuvrelle told the court. ‘That’s who he is.’
According to court documents filed by the prosecution, 30 women have come forward to accuse Flores of sexual misconduct, with some of them telling investigators that they woke up in the suspect’s home without remembering how they got there.
At least four of the accusers alleged that Flores raped them.
The evidence was presented as part of the prosecution’s bid to add two rape charges to the criminal complaint against Flores in the Smart case, accusing him of sexually assaulting two women in Los Angeles.
San Luis Obispo Superior Court Judge Craig van Rooyen denied the motion, saying there is insufficient evidence that Smart was raped.
The judge said that the court needed to consider whether prosecutors were attempting to add charges from a weak case to a stronger case in an attempt to prove the weaker case.
‘There’s no evidence of a sex crime in the charged crime (the murder case) itself,’ he said.
‘Proof of the LA charges can’t act as a substitute … for the SLO (San Luis Obispo) case.’

Additional records that were unsealed on the day of the hearing also revealed that a March 2021 search of Ruben Flores’ home in Arroyo Grande showed ‘significant soil disturbance’ and turned up samples that tested positive for human blood, although an expert has not ruled out that it could be ferret or primate blood.
While announcing the arrests, San Luis Obispo County Sheriff Ian Parkinson said a search of the elder Flores’ home last month using ground-penetrating radar and cadaver dogs that turned up new evidence linked to Smart’s killing.
A former tenant of Flores’ told investigators that Ruben kept the area under the deck where the evidence was found padlocked and would not let anyone access it, not even a plumber who came to repair a leak.
David Stone, who rented a room from Flores for a decade, before moving out last year, said that the enclosed space ‘would be the perfect place to dispose of something where nobody would see you…’
Stone also claimed that his landlord would refer to Smart as a ‘dirty slut.’
A 12-day preliminary hearing in Smart’s murder case was rescheduled for August 2.
