Edward Earl Flora

Constable Flora was shot and killed while investigating an accident on Jack Simmons Road near his home.

As he attempted to locate the driver and passengers of a wrecked car a juvenile approached him from behind him and shot him in the back of the head with a .22 caliber handgun. He left Constable Flora unconscious and fled the scene. Constable Flora regained consciousness and called for assistance. He was transported to a hospital where he succumbed to his wounds.

The subject was apprehended shortly after the shooting. The car that had wrecked had been stolen by the juvenile earlier in the day. The 17-year-old boy was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison.

Constable Flora had served with the Warren County Fifth District Constable's Office for 26 years. He was survived by his wife, daughter, and two sons.

Happy Birthday Pa❤️today you would have been the ripe old age of 95 - I often wonder what if & what would Pa do/say . Today is as gloomy of a day as the day you were taken but I hope you have a day pictured like this. A day on an old case bulldozer, a Massey Ferguson (IH now) tractor with your overhaul jacket & a chew of tobacco. That would be a good day! Love you miss you #EOW10/26/90
