A Norfolk realtor, who is the son of an Outer Banks Realtor, was shot and killed in an apparent murder-suicide in Portsmouth, VA on Oct. 8.
According to the Virginian-Pilot and other media accounts, 41-year-old Soren Arn-Oelschlegel was found shot to death inside the home of 84-year-old Albert A. Baglione, who told police who arrived at the scene that he had killed his realtor. Then Baglione, according to news accounts, went inside his home and took his own life.
A co-owner of Lightship Realty in Ocracoke confirmed that Oelschlegel is the son of B.J. Oelschlegel, a partner in that company.
The Voice has contacted the Portsmouth VA Police Department seeking further details.
On the morning of Oct. 11, the Outer Banks Association of Realtors posted its own message of condolence along with one from Rosemarie Riccitelli Doshier.
“Join us in sending sincere condolences and prayers to the Oelschlegel family.
It really gives you pause when a tragedy happens so close to home. The shocking news of a 41- year-old REALTOR being shot and killed by his buyer is unreal but the saddest part, he was the son of one of our own, BJ Oelschlegel of Ocracoke’s Lightship Realty. Our thoughts and prayers go out to BJ and her family.”
