FORT WORTH -- Loved ones hugged and held their faces in their hands, filled with disbelief.
It was simply too hard to comprehend how a woman can go into her office Monday, and not come home Monday night.
A woman was killed Monday afternoon in a stabbing at a RE/MAX real estate office on Heritage Trace Parkway near Alliance Town Center.
"It's always disturbing when you have a homicide at all, so no matter where it is in the city, it's sad, it's horrific," said Fort Worth Police Corporal Tracey Knight. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the victim."
The victim is an employee at the RE/MAX office, near the Keller city line. The office is in a busy complex in the 4200 block of Heritage Trace with several doctors' offices and a restaurant.
Police say she was stabbed while she was at work at around 4:30 p.m. The killer fled the scene, leaving workers in nearby offices unnerved.
"We locked the doors and made sure our patients were safe," said Shana Sun, who works in an eye clinic nearby. "It just breaks my heart."
While police had made no arrest, they said the public was not in danger. They said people had nothing to fear because it was not a random crime.
"I don't want to give the impression to the public this is a stranger-on-stranger crime," Knight said.
It appears as though it was domestic-related.
Police would say little about a possible suspect, but WFAA has learned detectives were looking to question a man in his 50s.
By Monday night, the Realtor's identity had not been confirmed.
