New details released on death of Hampton Roads real estate agent killed in murder-suicide
PORTSMOUTH, Virginia – Non-lethal baton shells still litter the driveway at 74 Bolling Road in Portsmouth, the scene of a tragic and bizarre murder-suicide on Friday night.
âHe bought the home site without being seen in Alabama, moved in here Thursday and called a real estate agent on Friday to return the house,â a neighbor told News 3.
The neighbor says that 84-year-old Albert Baglione had just moved into the house before the tragedy unfolded. Soren Arn-Oelschlegel, a real estate agent, came to the house to help the unhappy man with the purchase of his house.
The police then intervened at the home at around 6 p.m.
It was then that Baglione said he had killed his real estate agent.
Arn-Oelschlegel, who worked for Long & Foster in Suffolk, was shot dead in the house.
âHe called his son after he shot the real estate agent,â the neighbor said.
When the police arrived, they spoke with Baglione, who was holding a gun. He then closed the door, and that’s when a SWAT team arrived.
A few minutes later, they heard a gunshot – Baglione had turned the gun on him.
“The Hampton Roads LGBTQ community has lost a dynamic person [who’s] difficult to replace, âsaid Rudy Almanzor.
Almanzor is President of Hampton Roads Pride. Arn-Oelschlegel had been a member of the LGBTQ association for over a decade, a passionate volunteer active in the LGBTQ community.
“He’s always had tons of energy. I’ve never seen him without a smile, laughing and wanting to have fun. He worked hard, played hard,” Almanzor said.
Almanzor was stunned to hear the news, confused as to why and how it could have happened.
âI literally had to read it four to five times and I was like, ‘This doesn’t make sense,'” he said. “We are here to build a community, and one of our building blocks is missing.”
Hampton Roads Pride will be holding a memorial service this week in honor of Arn-Oelschlegel.
