It was one of the best true crime podcasts I've ever listened to. Much better than Serial.

Agreed. And what's even better is that it was his first true crime podcast and it ultimately helped get an arrest in the case!

Sheriff Parkinson laid out the recent timeline leading to Flores's arrest. He explained that in late 2016, investigators got ahold of evidence that identified Flores as the prime suspect in Kristin's disappearance.

Then in 2019, they interviewed at least one new witness that had not been previously interviewed. Parkinson attributed the "Your Own Backyard" podcast for bringing that new information to light.

With that new evidence, Parkinson said detectives were able to secure a court order to intercept Flores's electronic communications.


So badass

OK, I will check on it. This case has me very interested. I wonder when that hunk of crap Flores will go on trial.
So thanks for the info on the podcast!

Prosecutors officially charge Paul Flores with first degree murder and allege what has been thought all along, that he murdered Kristin in his dorm room after raping her or attempting to rape her:

How do they prove murder charges w/o a body by not relying on circumstantial evidence? How can you prove (legally) shes been murdered?

Im sure we will find all of that out in the coming months. Its gonna be interesting but one thing is for sure - there is no way in hell they would have moved forward with the arrests if they didnt have some substantial evidence that they did it.

Agreed. Even if they didn't find the body/body parts on any of properties, if they did find anything else like the watch, etc. there - that had KS's DNA/blood evidence - that should be enough to definitively link KS's disappearance/death to PF & his parents.

This is a horrific case. But, it's good that the killer almost certainly buried the body on the family's property. I.e., if he had disposed of the body somewhere else, the remains may have been found years ago. However, prosecutors probably would have had a much more difficult time tying him to the crime.

Just my .02

I read somewhere that before search warrants were issued, the Flores' neighbors allowed to let cadaver dogs in their yard so they could be near the Flores property and those cadaver dogs alerted for human remains at the Flores vicinity.

Though this case is 25 years old, I remember when it was first aired on Unsolved Mysteries and have been following it over the years. We were both at similar stages in life, just trying to enjoy the college experience and our first taste of independence. I hope the police finally get justice for her and her family.

I am planning to listen to the podcasts this weekend, and it sounds like it may present a lot of new details that were previously overlooked.

For those that may be new to the case, Aphrodite Jones covered this case in 2013.

While only your standard 45 minute episode (without commercials) it does a decent job of providing background information and why Flores was always a person of interest.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2630580/

You should be able to purchase the episode on Amazon, Google Play, or Itunes.

I just listened to the first installment of Your Own Backyard: A Face On a Billboard. It was pretty interesting to hear about Kristin Smart's life and personality. Lambert finished talking about the party she went to on the night she went missing and also Paul Flores. I look forward to hearing the next installment: The Only Suspect.

She would've been 44 this year, same age as myself (I actually turn 45 this month).

I can't get over the fact that his father had a role in the disappearance. Unbelievable that a parent would cover up a murder but... certainly not the first time.
I turned 44 yesterday and this case was on my mind because she was my age. I'm glad PF and his POS dad were arrested. Let's hope justice comes for Kristen and her family.

I saw a recent interview with the Flores mom. She came off as a real idiot and an enabler. Too bad she's not being charged too.
