FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) — The Tarrant County Medical Examiner has identified the victim in Monday’s fatal stabbing at a real estate office in North Fort Worth.
Suzanne Parsons, a 49-year-old Keller-based real estate agent, was found murdered inside the RE/MAX office in the 4200 block of Heritage Trace Parkway.
Police have not made any arrests in her murder, but say that the victim did know her attacker.
Though police are withholding any information about the suspect, authorities are emphasizing that this is an isolated incident.
“I don’t want to give the impression to the public that this is a stranger crime. This is not a stranger on stranger crime,” said Corp. Tracy Knight with the Fort Worth Police Department.
Police responded to a 911 call around 4 p.m., initially classifying the incident as a ‘cutting’. It wasn’t until authorities arrived that it was determined to be much worse.
According to the RE/MAX website, Parsons joined the company in 2010, but has been licensed as a realtor since 2005.
