"This is a painful reminder of the risks our agents take each and every day." Is this referring to the CIA? The FBI? Nope -- real estate. (via the one true /usr/bin/girl)

That's certainly freaky, the agent wasn't selling the house he was found in. Why would someone dump a body in a random house?

Yeah. Why would they ignore the houses that are specifically designated for body dumping?

That's what I mean, everyone knows about the designated Body Dumping Stations located all through town.

Well, all I know is that if the people who did this thought the cops were going to be a problem, just wait until they have to deal with the Municipal Zoning Committee! Those people are evil about enforcing those bylaws.

quonsar and mathowie: I live in Detroit... you can pretty much find a designated Body Dumpin' Sation by going a few blocks from downtown.

If the agent was functioning as a buyer's agent, then who the selling agent is is irrelevant. At least in Missouri, I don't know about Washington. Maybe the house didn't really have the jacuzzi-style tub the buyer specifically requested, and the agent had to be punished.

tj: We talkin' 'bout the Woodward-Cass Avenue corridor? Just curious.

If there is a good side to the story.......at least there will be one less Cadillac SUV on the road.

I'm most intrigued by the use of "person of interest" instead of "suspect." After years in the business, I'd thought I'd read every euphemism used to sidestep libel, but this is a new one. I hope it doesn't catch on. "Round up the usual people of interest!"

That's a widely-used term for a material witness who may or may not be a suspect. At this point they only have circumstantial reasons to believe he may be involved.
