Generic police tape

A Victoria woman was found dead Thursday evening inside a home in the 1700 block of Lincoln Street.

The Victoria Police Department responded to the home about 5:20 p.m. and discovered the body of 54-year-old Laura Flores, said Sgt. James Brewer.

The home, at 1710 Lincoln St., is owned by Laura and Basilio Flores, according to Victoria County Appraisal District records.

No foul play was suspected in Flores’ death as of Thursday, but cannot be completely ruled out until the department receives the results of an autopsy ordered by Justice of the Peace Robert Whitaker, Brewer said.

Other people were at the home when officers arrived, he said.

The death investigation is ongoing, he said. No additional details were available.
