DNA Links Murdered Woman To Rape Case

REDLANDS, Calif. (AP) Authorities say DNA on the body of a 23-year-old woman found in a San Bernardino County orange grove matches that of a suspect in a 2003 rape case.

The San Bernardino Sun reports Redlands police released a sketch of the suspect at a news conference on Thursday.

Police said the rape victim described her attacker as a white male in his late 30s to early 40s, 5 feet 6 inches tall, about 250 pounds with black hair and a receding hairline.

Investigators hope that someone will recognize the suspect and help them solve the murder of Sylvia Marie Flores, whose body was found in a Redlands orange grove in February.

Items belonging to Flores were recovered near the area where the 2003 rape took place and that helped narrow the search for a suspect.
