What would you do? We just put an offer on a house out there--still within our time to cancel. It is quite close to where a lady was killed this weekend. We were planning to leave SA to get away from some of this!! I realize crime happens everywhere, but its scary to me to think its so close! I'm thinking to just continue with the sale but am having second thoughts.

I'm no expert, but from what little I've read on this case, I'm willing to bet it was someone she knew, and not some random/drive-by/crime on the streets type of homicide.

La Vernia has always been a pretty quiet community. Unfortunately the more land that is bought up and subdivided then sold to developers to build crowded little neighborhoods the more frequently these things will happen. A small towns personality is formed by the people who live there. Usually, for the most part, it is people who's families have lived there for generations and share pretty much the same values, customs and behavioral attitudes. When the land around the town is sold for residential real estate you get a surge of influences from all over the country. Mostly people trying to get away from it all or in a lot of cases just looking for what they feel is cheap real estate in the country. Instead of getting away from it all, in reality, they are bringing it all with them. Nobody wins.

If you ask me, it's PERFECT. Negotiate down the price even further since the area now has an evil stigma attached to it. More power to you!

To look at it from a different angle, I had a friend that would always book her travel on the airlines that had crashed most recently...she said the odds were astronomical that the same airlines would be crash twice in a row...

I'd cancel and move somewhere desolate. Avoid using cars, those crash too. Otherwise, scrap the ridiculous paranoia and live your life normally. You'll be happier.

I like to tell myself the same thing when flying, but an airline crash is really a random event. Statistically speaking, random events are more likely to come in clumps than be evenly distributed...sorry.
