Causes of Albert Baglione’s Death…
Portsmouth police were called to a house on Bolling Road in Portsmouth for an incident Friday, Oct. 8. When officers arrived, they saw 84-year-old Albert Baglione with a weapon in his hand. Baglione told the officers he shot his Realtor, then closed the door to his house. Seconds later, the officers heard a shot and found Baglione dead.
Not long after arriving at the small, single-story house in Portsmouth he reportedly bought “sight unseen,” 84-year-old Albert Baglione was seen wandering the cul-de-sac where it was located.
“He seemed a little off,” said Shane, who’s lived in the house next door for more than 25 years and asked to be identified only by his first name. “He just seemed out of it.”
That was last Thursday. The next time Shane saw his new neighbor was the next afternoon when he saw Baglione unloading his belongings from a U-Haul moving truck in the driveway of the Bolling Roadhouse.
A few hours later, Baglione was found dead inside. So was his real estate agent, 41-year-old Soren Arn-Oelschlegal of Norfolk. According to a news release issued by Portsmouth police, Baglione is believed to have killed Arn-Oelschlegal before turning the gun on himself.
Police were called to the house in the Shea Farms community about 6 p.m. Friday. When they spoke to Baglione, he had a weapon in his hand and told the officers he’d killed his Realtor, according to a release.
Baglione shut the door to his house and the officers heard a gunshot. When SWAT team members went in, they found Baglione and Arn-Oelschlegal dead.
The circumstances surrounding the actual cause of death had not been made public at the time of writing this report. The investigation is still ongoing to know the actual cause of death.
The little reminders that cause tears today will turn into little reminders that make us sad and then those little reminders will eventually make us smile and remember Albert just as he would have wanted us to with love, a grin, and maybe a cold one.
We ask that you uplift his parents and close family and friends in prayer during this time. He has left an impact on the lives of many and a legacy that will live on for many years.
