Cops seized rape videos from accused Kristin Smart killer Paul Flores

Investigators allegedly found sadistic homemade videos of California college student Kristin Smart’s accused killer raping drugged women in his home, it was revealed Wednesday.

A search of Paul Flores’ house in San Pedro last year yielded a trove of vile footage showing him sodomizing and sexually assaulting women — as well as “date rape” drugs, newly unsealed documents alleged, according to the San Luis Obispo Tribune.

 “[Detectives] discovered numerous homemade videos of Paul Flores having sexual intercourse and sodomizing women who drift in and out of consciousness,” San Luis Obispo Deputy District Attorney Christopher Peuvrelle wrote in court papers unsealed Wednesday in San Luis Obispo Superior Court.

Prosecutors allege Flores, 44 — who’s accused of raping and murdering the missing California Polytechnic State University freshman — preyed on at least 30 women.

Some of the victims told investigators they were drugged, raped or sexually assaulted by him, prosecutors said.

Smart, 19, was last seen leaving a house party with Flores on Memorial Day weekend 1996. She is presumed dead. Flores has pleaded not guilty to murder.

During the Feb. 4, 2020, search of Flores’ home, investigators seized several electronic devices —  including a hard drive containing a folder labeled “Practice,” according to the court documents.

In homemade footage, a woman appears with a red ball gag in her mouth, while a disturbing porn video also found shows a masked man breaking into a house and raping an unconscious “school-aged girl,” according to prosecutors.

“This is a fetishized rape fantasy video,” Peuvrelle wrote in court papers.

Detectives also found the phrase “Real Drunken Girls — Drugged and Raped while Passed Out” searched in Google on Flores’ home computer, according to prosecutors.

“Paul Flores is a defendant who likes to rape and drug intoxicated women,” Peuvrelle said in San Luis Obispo Superior Court Wednesday. “That’s who he is.”

However, Superior Court Judge Craig van Rooyen denied the prosecution’s motion to add two charges of rape of an intoxicated person against Flores, according to the San Luis Obispo Tribune.

The judge ruled there was only “thin” evidence to support rape charges in Smart’s murder, saying it would “invite error” into the case.
