Flora Fuentes, 71

Flora Fuentes, 71, a Latina, was discovered dead of stab wounds in her apartment at 725 S. Alvarado Street in Westlake at about noon on Saturday, Nov. 24.

She ran a Salvadoran restaurant with her family, and usually opened the business up early in the morning. When she failed to do so on this day, family members went to the apartment -- where she lived alone -- and discovered her dead on the floor with numerous stab wounds, said Rampart Det. Fred Faustino. There was no sign of forced entry, detectives said.
