An Arizona real estate agent named Beverly Carter was found buried in a shallow grave early Tuesday morning, September 30. The discovery came after she had been reported missing the week earlier following a showing of a home in the nearby community of Scott. Following the disappearance, Mrs. Carter’s husband went to the house looking for her, only to discover her vehicle still there and the door to the house left open.
Arron Lewis was arrested on Monday in connection with her disappearance. According to Lt. Carl Minden of the Pulaski Sheriff’s Office, the suspect admitted to the kidnapping but refused to divulge the location of the body.
This incident demonstrates the risks that many real estate agents face when showing homes.
