Edward Earl Flora

Constable Flora was shot and killed while investigating an accident 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 injuries. The suspect was apprehended shortly after the shooting. The car which was wrecked had been stolen by the juvenile earlier in the day.

The 17 year-old suspect was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison.

Constable Flora had been with the agency for 26 years and was survived by his wife, daughter, and two sons.

First & foremost, the Flora family would like to THANK the men & women that served as our voice & represented us during your time on our case. My grandfather, Earl Flora, Pa, as we called him, he was a mighty fine man. Wish you all could have met him under different circumstances. 10 years will come fairly quick things you notice as you get older, but I personally am grateful for for the 10 year deferment. My grandmother will be 88 on the 29th of this month, that’s the best birthday present she probably will receive. I am thankful you all listened to our pain felt our hurt & believed that Brian Woodcock’s residence is as is for the safety of all. Many thanks for your care concern & love for not only our family, but for our community & country as a whole. God Bless!
