BREAKING: Duke’s mother arrested for child cruelty, family fears someone went too far

Published

on

APPLE VALLEY, Calif. (VVNG.com) — Jackee Flores, the mother of missing 6-year-old Duke Flores of Apple Valley, was arrested on charges of Willful Cruelty to a child, and her twin sister Jennifer is being questioned by investigators.

News of the arrest came late Friday when detectives at the scene told reporters that Jackee Flores, 29, was arrested for Willful Cruelty the same night they responded to the house for the missing child report, which was Thursday, April 25.

Jackee’s twin sister Jennifer also lives in the same house with two of her kids and is also being questioned in the strange disappearance of Duke.

A neighbor told Victor Valley News that a group of women showed up to the boy’s house on Thursday night screaming and yelling outside the residence.

“I thought they were going to fight, it was so loud,” the neighbor, who declined to be named told VVNG. “But the police arrived shortly after and I stopped paying attention.”

It was Duke’s extended family that arrived at the house Thursday night demanding answers after not hearing from the boy since April 14th.

The boy’s grandmother, Lydia Gutierrez, told news reporters that she grew suspicious after questioning the whereabouts of Duke, and hearing different stories that weren’t adding up.

She was first told that Duke had tried to smother a baby with a pillow and was sent to a mental hospital, according to the televised report.

The boy’s grandmother, Lydia Gutierrez, said she thinks her daughter Jennifer caught Duke smothering one of her children, got angry and went too far, according to the live broadcast.

Crime Scene Investigators were at the house all day long, processing the entire home for evidence and towing away cars.

According to ABC7, the investigation at the home discontinued at the home late Friday, and moved to a different, not yet known, location.

Officials said they have not found Duke and that he is still listed as critical missing.

ADELANTO, Calif. (VVNG.com) — Several people were injured in a T-bone crash at the intersection of Sheep Creek near El Mirage Roads Saturday night.

According to the California Highway Patrol incident logs, the traffic accident was reported at about 9:30 PM on August 8th and involved a silver Chevy Tahoe and a silver Ford F-150.

San Bernardino County Firefighters responded and located the Tahoe with major damage to the passenger side and used extrication tools to remove a young child. A female adult sitting in the front passenger was critically injured and a helicopter was requested to airlift her to a trauma center.

A CHP helicopter H-80 landed in the roadway and subsequently flew the injured woman to Loma Linda University Medical Center.

Jessica Christopherson was on her way home from work when she drove up to the accident and heard children inside the SUV screaming and pulled over to call 911. Jessica said the little girl’s leg was pinned but when firefighters removed her from the vehicle she only had some scrapes.

According to Jessica, the dad in the Tahoe was okay and another little girl was shaken up and all three were taken by ground ambulance to LLUMC. The driver of the pickup truck sustained a gash to the back of his head.

Jessica told VVNG she’s almost been involved in several accidents on El Mirage Road due to people speeding and would like to see at least a 3-way stop sign instead of just one.

The California Highway Patrol Victorville Station is handling the investigation into the cause of the crash.
