Wichita Radio: Arrest Made In Murder Of Broadcaster

Daniel Flores
Police in Wichita, KS have arrested 31-year-old Antwon Banks for the murder of 25-year-old Daniel Flores. Flores body was found by co-workers Monday morning. Police theorize he was killed Sunday evening around 8pm.

During a briefing for reporters earlier Thursday, police Lt. Todd Ojile, head of the homicide unit, said, “Right now, it looks like he (Flores) could have been at the wrong place at the wrong time.”

According to police, Banks stabbed himself in the stomach during a traffic stop.  Ojile said he expected that the suspect, who underwent surgery, could be released from the hospital later Thursday or Friday and would be booked into the jail on suspicion of felony murder. The suspect was under guard and in police custody at Wesley Medical Center, Ojile said.

It appears Banks was actually targeting another employee at Steckline Communications.  The station's office manager Lisa Bryce had dated Banks and recently 'kicked him of my house'.

Police said there had been a struggle where they found Flores’ body, in a foyer area of the basement level of the office building.
