My third year in San Diego an agent I was in escrow with was murdered by her husband on the day their divorce was finalized. There are more metal detectors in Family Court than Criminal Court.

Oh, I feel for those precious children of hers - now, they will have neither parent. SO incredibly sad. 

Sadly, watching the interview with the husband, I had a suspicion it might be him as well. Again, so sad.

I was hoping and praying for a more positive outcome.  Glad that she was not targeted as a real estate agent; however, this is still very sad to hear and that it was her husband.  As many have pointed out, its unfortunate that her children will have lost both parents.
