    Arkansas Realtor Beverly Carter went to show a home in the city of Scott on Thursday. Then, she vanished.

    On Sunday, a court issued an arrest warrant for Aaron M. Lewis, 33, in her disappearance. Police didn't say how they linked him to Carter. Lewis is still at large.

    Lewis had been in a traffic accident, and police went to scene, said Pulaski County Sheriff's Office spokesman Lt. Carl Minden. Lewis was taken to the hospital and, once there, left.

    it's a pretty creepy yet ingenious way to get a victim to meet you. Realtors should probably have a buddy system of sorts. Scary shit.

    Thing is, for some reason, I get the vibe that maybe the husband hired the kid to off her :dontknow:

    Realtors SHOULD use the buddy system and it's preached in real estate school.

    But noone wants to share that commission man...

    you are alone in an abandoned house with a stranger...she's wearing a business suite, high heels, perfume, sparkly ear rings, and acting overtly friendly to close the deal...nothing could possibly go wrong

    Ingenious? It's not like the realtor meets him on a street corner. They know who he is and where he lives and other information before they go off with a guy like that. It's ingenious only if you don't mind going to prison later.

    51 yrs old? Either she looks damn good for her age or this is a really old picture of her.

    Maybe that realtor is listing a new home that is still being constructed and that creep works on the job site there.

    The video showed a completed home with some lawn maintenance issues.

    You are right that there is a huge problem in America today of people working in "day labor" or "paid in cash" jobs, because of PC attitudes towards illegal immigrants and the complete ignoring of the scumbags who hire illegally to gain a competitive advantage over law-abiding employers. Criminals use this sort of work to earn money while wanted for other crimes. Most construction workers are of course not criminals. But having a system that allows one to remain "under the radar" to law enforcement does attract criminals to those jobs.

    The reason people would "run for the border" in the past when wanted by the law was to achieve such anonymity in Mexico from US authorities. There's no reason to believe the opposite isn't true here, nor than home-grown criminals don't use the same tactic.

    A common problem with businesses that provide services to homeowners is that some of their employees use the time spent at people's homes to learn their habits and case the homes for future burglaries. Since many employers don't screen their workers, one of them may well be the guy that robs your house a few months later. The smart ones don't walk out with your TV set or jewelry that day. They come back for it, knowing you're at work because the ten days they spent at your home working you were never there.

    If you hire a contractor to work on your home, or worse, inside your home, refuse to hire them if they can't prove every single one of the people working on your property are "in the system" and therefore could be screened for warrants or prior criminal history. Ask if any of them are casual day labor and not long-term employees.

    Another reason is that when Bob the derilict gets hurt at your home, there is no workers comp for that type of laborer (illegal, not on the payroll, paid cash, etc). He will grab a lawyer and sue you instead.

    really? Usually you meet the prospect at the home. You don't take an application to view a property. Usually it's all arranged by phone or email

    It's a pretty common scam, guys will see the agents picture on a listing, think she's hot and schedule a showing to be alone with her, that and theives that see a house on the web and schedule a showing because they see stuff In the shots that they can snag. I do a lot of work with agents prepping homes to sell, I get a lot of calls to be "working" on a house when the agents have a showing with an unknown client.

    exactly, it sucks that you have to be suspicious of everyone
