    Florida real estate agent Sara Trost (40), fatally shot by a former tenant of the house she was showing

    ?Disgruntled Tenant? Accused of Brutal Daylight Slaying of Florida Realtor

    A Florida real estate agent was fatally ambushed as she tried to sell a home on Thursday, and police have arrested a 51-year-old man described by neighbors as a ?disgruntled tenant? who had recently moved out of the home.

    Sara Trost, a young mom from the United Kingdom who started her own business flipping discount homes in South Florida, was sitting in her Jeep in the home?s driveway at 12:30 p.m. when she was shot multiple times, police said.

    A neighbor, Roben Cipriani, said he was on a work call at home when he heard two gunshots. ?I turn to my wife and I said, ?I think that was gunshots,?? he told Local 10 News. ?I got a little closer to the Jeep and I saw some blood.?

    Hours later, officers arrested Raymond Wesley Reese, 51, of Boca Raton. He is facing a murder charge in connection with Trost?s death.

    Police did not disclose a motive for the brutal daylight slaying but neighbors said Reese was a tenant who had recently moved out of the Coral Springs bungalow.

    ?There was a disgruntled tenant who was evicted,? a neighbor, Donna Smith, told Local 10. ?He thought that the realtor, who was showing the home, he thought it was the owner of the house, and she was ambushed.?

    An unidentified person close to the Reese told 7 News Miami disputed that Reese was evicted, but said there had been a mutual decision to move out recently.

    Trost, 40, was remembered as a devout member of her local synagogue who fostered dogs and volunteered at the Paw Patrol Animal Rescue & Sanctuary. She leaves behind a husband and young toddler.

    ?[She was] so loving and caring. There wasn?t a project that we started in the community that she wouldn't be a part of,? the Chabad of Parkland?s Rabbi Shuey Biston told CBS12. ?She was just a really special person. Anything she touched, she turned to gold.?

    I feel like with the rise in housing costs, and the fact that owners are deciding to sell instead of rent (forcing the renters out of the home) this could start happening way more often.

    Sorry, I didn't intend for that to come out mean! Just stating facts. I don't blame anyone for wanting to sell right now, the prices are just too good to pass that up! I'm just saying I can see people getting angry and wanting revenge. So be careful!

    I get what you are saying and know you didn't intend it to be mean. It just galls me that everyone looks at landlords as the evil person. When someone raises the prices at the grocery store or at the cell phone company, no one makes them out to be the devil. I'm not a fat cat. I worked my ass off to buy my house, renovate my house, and be a good landlord. Contrary to what most people think, after the increasing cost of insurance and taxes and repairs for things tenants break, I don't make a lot.

    So who is going to take revenge for the cost of milk these days??? There's got to be some farmer out there that we can blame.

    Oh I'm sure there will be a lot more theft when prices of food go up. Lot easier to steal than a house

    Wd do an annual film series. We lost our venue, had to move to a more expensive place. We also face increased prices to book our films. Ticket stock made a jump, paper prices are up. So we cut two movies from the series (formerly 10, now 8) and people act like... I dunno, we raised their rent or something. I guess my point is, don't feel like the Lone Ranger. Everybody hates a price increase, and when it's a necessity like rent, or food, they hate it even more.

    Raymond Reese Charged With Killing Realtor Sara Trost In Case Of Mistaken Identity

    A South Florida man remains in jail without bond after being charged in the shooting death of a real estate agent, in a case of mistaken identity.

    According to authorities, recently evicted 51-year-old Raymond Reese fatally shot Sara Trost, because he mistakenly thought she was his former landlord.

    Trost had been waiting outside a home in Coral Springs, two days before Christmas, waiting to meet with a potential buyer when she was fatally shot, according to Coral Springs Police.

    "It was just a mistaken identity. She never even got out of the car," Rabbi Shuey Biston of Chabad of Parkland, where Trost was an active member, told the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

    Reese, 51 called 911 after the shooting and told a dispatcher that he had shot his former landlord and believed she was dead, according to the Coral Springs Police.

    "Can you send an officer to pick me up, I shot somebody," Reese told the dispatcher, giving his name, birthday and address, according to the arrest warrant.

    At the police station, Reese confessed to shooting someone at the home in Coral Springs where he used to live, saying "he was upset at his former landlord over an email she sent him the previous day, which he had read that morning," the arrest warrant said.

    Reese is facing a charge of one count of first degree murder following his arrest on Thursday. Online court records showed no attorney listed for him.

    He remained in the Broward County Jail on Monday, according to jail records.
