Another Supreme Court witness killed — this time in Mahogany Heights

Kenneth Flowers, 26, a witness for an upcoming Supreme Court trial, was “chopped up” in his bed while he slept in his Mahogany Heights home by a killer who gained entry into his house on Wednesday night, August 28.

Flowers was chopped in the head and face, and died on Saturday, August 31, while receiving treatment at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital.

Police said that Flowers was found in a sitting position with three large chop wounds, and he was bleeding. He was rushed to the hospital where he fought for his life at the Intensive Care Unit, but ultimately succumbed to his injuries.

Police have detained two men from Mahogany Heights who they believe can help with their investigation, but no one has yet been arrested for Flowers’s death.

Police said that Flowers had come upon a man who was raping a little girl in Mahogany Heights and had intervened.
