According to forensic reports, the little one had 22 stab wounds on his body. The boy was stabbed while walking home from school. According to the coroner’s reports, the deepest wounds caused severe damage to the aortic artery and liver, as well as causing his lungs to collapse.

Josué Flores did nothing to provoke the attack, his attacker was unknown and the witnesses could only confirm that the little boy was trying to defend himself. People reported that the former Marine was arrested as a suspect in the crime at the time, but later released for lack of evidence.

“Apart from the video, we had nothing at that time before DNA confirmation. They managed to find new DNA evidence to confirm that he was the suspect in the case,» former prosecutor Tom Berg argued. «The most important thing in the trial will be the scientific DNA evidence because that is what confirms the other evidence from the surveillance videos that points to him being the one who committed the murder,» he added.
