Nearly 25 years after Cal Poly student Kristin Smart disappeared from the college campus, prime suspect Paul Flores was arrested on suspicion of murder Tuesday, and his father was arrested on suspicion of being an accessory to murder, according to sheriff's officials.
Paul Flores, 43, was arrested in San Pedro and booked into San Luis Obispo County Jail, with no bail listed. He was the last person seen with Smart as he walked with her on the Cal Poly campus in the early morning of May 25, 1996. Her body has never been found, including during a search Tuesday. She was declared legally dead in 2002.
Ruben Flores, 80, also was booked into County Jail on Tuesday, with his bail set at $250,000.
