Delano police examine phone records in search for alleged killer


Investigators have obtained the full call and text history of a cell phone found at the scene of a deadly shooting in an effort to find the alleged killer, who has been on the run for seven months. 

The murder occurred around 1:30 p.m. Oct. 14 in the 2000 block of Princeton Street. Adan Aguilar Berrera, 36, was found dead with a single bullet wound to his forehead, according to police. 

Audel Flores Reyes, 31, is accused of killing Berrera.  

Investigators searched the house where Berrera was found dead. The owner of the property told police neither Berrera or Reyes entered his home, according to court documents. He also told police Berrera, Reyes, and two other men had been hanging out in front of the house, “talking and drinking beer.” The man said Berrera and Reyes were arguing immediately prior to the shooting.  

Reyes and the two other men, who have not been identified, ran away after Berrera was killed, according to the documents. Both of those unidentified men allegedly arrived at the home with Berrera. 

The cell phone found at the scene is believed to have been owned by one of the unidentified men. 

Investigators also found approximately 90 pounds of marijuana, along with other drug paraphernalia, at the residence, but said they are believed to be unrelated to the shooting. 

The investigation is ongoing, and police ask anyone with information on this shooting to call the department’s main line at 721-3377 or the tip line at 721-3369.
