Josue Flores stabbed: The Salvation Army says it will not reopen North Main men’s home after a convicted murderer was seen walking in

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) – The Salvation Army will not reopen its men’s home, which was closed after the May 2016 killing of 11-year-old Josue Flores, according to the organization.

The Nordmain location, which was closed in 2018, will instead house administrative offices and other services, according to official information.

The Salvation Army released a statement admitting the shelter was becoming a drain on the Northside community.
