Argument Among In-laws Ends in Murder on Kelly Street

Tonight police are looking for Whitfield Fisher, the suspect in the murder of his brother-in-law, Andrew Flores. Flores was killed inside an apartment on Kelly Street on the night of the tenth of September. Though he was rushed to the K.H.M.H, the deep cut wound to his throat turned fatal. Trouble started when a guest arrived at the house and Flores did not approve. Here is News Five’s Isani Cayetano.

A domestic dispute among in-laws has resulted in the murder of thirty-four-year-old Andrew Flores.  The grotesque scene unfolded here on the upper flat of this tenement complex where several persons were gathered, including Whitfield Fisher who remains at large.  The altercation, says Flores’ common-law, began earlier that evening when her brother invited a friend over.  That individual and Flores did not get along well and he asked that the young man leave the property.

“My bwai and [the young man] never had that strong connection.  Dehn noh like ‘gree that much, so he gaan downstairs and he ask my bredda if he could mek di bally go because he noh want no problem.  So I noh know if my bredda ansa ahn or anything, but shortly after he come upstairs and when he come upstairs he get di baby from my ma and he staat kiss up di baby and mek di baby kiss my ma.  Then afta dat [the young man] gaan, then my bredda and ih gyal come upstairs and he tek di baby from Andrew Flores, who da my bwai, and give me di baby.  Afta when he done give me di baby, so [the young lady] ask Andrew weh da di problem.  Ih seh if dehn have wahn problem, we could solve it now.”

According to Flores’ common-law wife, her brother inflicted the deadly knife wound inside the apartment, following a brief exchange of words during which the park ranger had inquired about a plot to have him killed.

“What has been the history between your brother and your common-law though?  It seems like maybe they had some kind of tension or they didn’t agree with each other.”
