According to the news release, Flores will return to administrative duties in 2019 while the Crest Hill Police Department conducts an internal investigation to determine if there were any violations of department policies. Clark said he doesn’t know exactly when Flores will return to work in the department, but he said the internal investigation will happen as quickly and will be conducted as thoroughly as possible.
In October, Harer’s parents, Heather and Kevin, filed a lawsuit in federal court claiming that Flores shot and killed their daughter, called 911 and claimed she shot herself. In the lawsuit, they claim the couple had a “rocky relationship, made even more so by the fact that Defendant Flores’ alcoholism had not subsided,” which was in reference to an incident in 2016 for which he was suspended for 30 days for being intoxicated in public and driving a motor vehicle while intoxicated.
