Pressure is intensifying in the search for the killer of an 11-year-old boy in north Houston.

Photos of proud and happy moments filled the room at La Paz Memorial Funeral Home where loved ones were remembering 11-year-old Josue Flores.

"He was really compassionate, really nice, always smiling" said his sister, Guadalupe Flores.

However, fear is the flip side to his family's grief. They know his killer is not yet behind bars, and despite a false arrest last week, they want the community to keep the faith.

"We just have to trust HPD, and forensics, they're doing their job. We just have to help them, be there for them," said Flores.
