Name: Duke Flores.
Died: April 25, 2019 (Missing).
Age at death: 6.
Cause of death: Missing, presumed dead.
Location: Apple Valley, California, USA.
When Duke’s mother reported him missing, the six-year-old had already been missing for two weeks. Soon thereafter, she was arrested for child cruelty; a few days later, she and Duke’s aunt were charged with murder.
Police report that in her confession, Duke’s mother said that they strangled him with an electrical cord and buried his body in their backyard; but after the family dogs kept trying to dig up his body, the two women dug him up and put him in a dumpster. His body has still not been found.
