    Oh jeez, I am so sorry to hear this. Another article I read (now I can't find it), said the ex-husbands story of visiting a sick relative in ??Bolivia?? checked out (maybe it had been pre-planned - I don't know). I'm sure the date who dropped her off at 11:30 has been checked out.


    Sympathy to her family...

    This is so sad. She worked at the same real estate agency that my realtor does. We just bought our first home four months ago. It's such a small community, I know her presence will be missed.

    The ex's story sounds fishy and a little too convienient, but one never knows. I just hope they can nail whoever did this.

    Here's a link to her website. There are several good links at the bottom of this page:

    Calimom-
    Is her ex of South American descent? His story is peculiar. Way too much of a coincidence, imo.

    Weird. They aren't saying if it is her or not. There must be something really odd about the body, or a relative should be able to ID it.

    Maybe they know it's her but they are withholding the ID as part of a way to smoke out the perp...maybe they are playing mindgames with the ex-husband or something.

    IdahoMom,

    I haven't heard much about the ex, someone stated that they heard his story checked out, so who knows. I'm keeping up with this one, so I'll let you know if I hear anything more.

    Thanks CaliMom. This is not the ending I had hoped for. What about the boyfriend- has much been said about him?

    Announced this morning that autopsy records are sealed so don't know cause of death. If ex flew out of San Diego enroute to Bolivia, or wherever, he would be a major suspect. Haven't heard much about date--sure he is high on suspect list too - what a waste, to take a human life for what = happens every day, I know, but always shocked.

    Several years ago there was a serial abductor, rapist who preyed upon real estate agents operating in several states. I was selling real estate at the time and every office in the tri-county area had the drawing of the guy posted in the office for customers and agents to view. We started using the buddy system if our clients were single men. This was before cell phones or beepers--the 80's!

    Looks like the date and the ex-husband were cleared. I hope they can find out who did this. It's so sad.

    But she disappeared after 11:30 PM. Do Real Estate agents go out to show houses that late?
