More details are coming out about the unfortunate murder in Mid-City last night in which a woman was murdered by her estranged boyfriend. According to an LAPD statement, 30-year-old Flor Medrano flagged down officers on patrol yesterday evening after she was threatened and assaulted the day before.

Medrano went to the Wilshire Division station while an investigation began with searches for the suspect at and around her home on the 1300 block of Cochran and at his Inglewood home. Although he was not located, he did send a text message that seemed to indicate he was near her second-story apartment unit.
