Murder Victim's Family Speaks Out

CORPUS CHRISTI - The family of a woman found dead in a mobile home park is speaking out. Family of Terry Ramos found out about her murder yesterday afternoon.

"She did not deserve it. It was such a violent act. And uh all we can do now is pray for her soul. And uh we love her very much and we're gonna miss her very much," said Terry's sister-in-law Anna Ramos.

While most of her family is taking the news hard. They all say her selfless legacy is one no one will ever forget.

"Terry was a server. She served everybody. She gave everybody her love, her attention, always helped everybody," said Anna.

Terry left behind 5 daughters and even more sisters and brothers.

Family says Terry was always smiling and laughing. But she was also a fighter, something family says you can tell from Flores's mug shot. There are what looks like scratch marks all over his face and Ramos's family says they are positive Terry put up a fight.

While her death is a tragedy, family hope it's a lesson for other women.

"It could happen to anybody that's in a domestic violence situation. Think of your own families, what they could be going through right now if this happened to any of these women who are out there," said Anna.

Flores is still in the Nueces County jail charged with murder. His bond is set at $1 million.

The family is holding a BBQ benefit this Sunday to help pay for funeral expenses. It will begin at 11am at the Blue Room Bar on Kostoryz.
