Son Charged with Fatally Stabbing Father in Leesburg

Leesburg Police have charged 28-year-old Hector Anthony Flores  Jr. with first-degree murder in the stabbing death of his 47-year-old father, Hector Anthony Flores Sr. on Sunday night.

Shortly after 9 p.m. on Sept. 24, Flores walked into Leesburg Police headquarters on Plaza Street and reported that he had stabbed his father at their Wythe Court home.

Police found his father suffering from an apparent stab wound. He died at the scene.

According to the preliminary investigation, the stabbing was a result of an altercation between the two.

Flores is being held without bond at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center.

It is the second domestic-related homicide in Loudoun this year.

In August, a Lucketts-area man was charged with murder in the death of his father. In that case, investigators said Michael F. Bowles, 20, shot and killed Mario M. Bowles, 52, and then set their home on fire in an effort to conceal the crime.

In 2016, there were three deaths resulting from domestic altercations.
