    CO - Real Estate Agent Raped While Showing Off House

    Brandon J. Bradshaw, 51, of Denver, is accused of the assault. He was arrested Monday morning at a motel in Wheat Ridge.



    "There was a short foot pursuit. He was then apprehended after the short foot pursuit," said investigator Vicki Harbert, with the Weld County Sheriff's Office.

    That story hits close to home. I never show a home after dark unless one of my sons is with me. Also if someone I don't know calls the office to meet them at a home, I always let someone know what house I'm leaving to show. I do not get out of my car until I call in the license plate number of the other car and a description of the person when I get there. Once I've worked with someone a while, I know if they are a serious home buyer, I'm ok. A realtor in the town next to me was robbed and almost beaten to death in a vacant home 2 years ago. Another realtor I work with had a friend murdered in Louisiana showing a house Rose insisted they go back the next day and check the house her friend had last shown, her body was hidden in the attic. The never did find who murdered her.

    I'm thankful the realtor lived through her ordeal and identified her attacker.

    After reading that story, I realized what a dangerous job that could be. I guess I never really thought about it before. But you are alone, with who-knows-who and anything could happen. Scary

    Something similiar happened in my hometown with tragic results for two area women:

    The double murders of Lori Brown and Cynthia Williams in Atlanta, Georgia also shocked the real estate industry. The pair were shot to death in the model home of a prosperous Atlanta area subdivision in November 2003. Police say Stacey Ian Humphries killed the two women during a robbery. He has pleaded not guilty to two first-degree murder charges.

    This article not only mention this Atlanta Crime but others..seems it has and is happening way too often and maybe the new trend of "stranger attacks".

    There was a serial rapist not long ago that was doing rapes of realtor's. I think he got busted though.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
