‘Find Kristin Smart’ group says it’s serious about buying home next to Paul Flores’ mom

A group of community advocates seeking justice for missing Cal Poly student Kristin Smart is floating the idea of buying an Arroyo Grande home next to the property of Susan Flores.

Flores is the mother of Paul Flores, the last person seen with Smart when the 19-year-old woman went missing after a party in San Luis Obispo in 1996.

Members of the Find Kristin Smart Facebook group started discussing the idea when the home on the 500 block of East Branch Street was listed for sale online. The group had more than 30,000 members as of Monday.

“Ok serious proposal,” group member Pascoe Bowen wrote on Aug. 5. “What if we bought the house for sale next door to (Susan Flores) and turned it into the Kristin Smart memorial museum, and research center for missing people? The house is selling for $700,000, we have over 29,000 members in this group.
