Portsmouth news, Virginia news.

Authorities in Virginia said that an 84-year-old man had confessed to killing his realtor before taking his own life Friday.

Albert A. Baglione had reportedly purchased the Portsmouth 750-square-foot home sight unseen for $160,000 on October 4, a neighbor said.

“He bought the house sight-unseen from Alabama, moved in here Thursday, and called a real estate agent Friday to return the house.”

Baglione then called his son claiming the home “didn’t look the same as it did in the pictures” and that he was “unhappy.”

    “We are here to build up the community, and one of our building blocks is missing.”

    Almanzor added that the victim was a “vibrant” member of the Hampton Roads Pride.

    “He always had tons of energy. I never saw him not smiling, laughing, and wanting to have fun. He worked hard, played hard.”
