Guinness record holder for shoe-related items killed in S. California.; ex-boyfriend arrested

A Southern California woman who held a Guinness World Record for collecting shoe-related items has been found dead in her pool, and her former boyfriend has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise (http://bit.ly/13b6kUz ) reports 58-year-old Darlene Flynn was found dead at her Menifee home on Monday. She had suffered blunt-force injuries.

Sheriff's deputies answering a report of an argument found her body in the backyard pool and saw a shirtless man run from the property.

Twenty-nine-year-old Justin Smith was later arrested near a highway. He remains in jail Wednesday.

Acquaintances tell the Press-Enterprise the couple had frequent arguments and had broken up.

The Guinness Book of World Records says Flynn had nearly 15,000 shoe-related items, including shoe-shaped furniture, lamps and jewelry.
