The Death Of Sarah Walker : Never Forget Her


Sarah Walker was beautiful. She was the mother of two children. She sold homes for a living. Everyone loved her.

sarah walkerShe was at work in her office in a model home in a beautiful new subdivision in McKinney, Texas at 5700 Conch Train. A couple visiting the model home came by at 1:23 p.m. on July 8, 2006, and found Sarah. She was dead, on the floor of the kitchen in the model home, stabbed more than 33 times.

She was killed by a piece of trash, garbage, a scumbag, a worthless slimeball, a reprehensible piece of cheap crap, a filthy pig, someone that should have been defecated on and executed.

The North Carolina parolee, who had been in Texas for only five months, knocked at the door, claiming his car had broken down.

Kosul Chanthakoummane asked to use the telephone, became furious about the realtor's dog, asked if it would bite, and left. He came back and killed Sarah.

This filthy monster, a 27 year old felon, who was out on parole, had been serving time for kidnapping an elderly couple. This cowardly, stinking garbage pile broke into a home, assaulted two elderly female residents at gun point, and stole their car.

Chanthakoummane walked in to the model home where Sarah was working, picked up a 25 pound plant stand and struck Sarah in the face and head with it. The force of the blow broke Sarah's nose, knocked out her teeth and smashed the bones in her face. This driveling, smelly scumbag then stabbed Sarah in her forearm, back and neck 33 times.

It took the Collins County, Texas jury about a half an hour on Wednesday, October 17, 2007 to convict and decide beyond reasonable doubt that Kosoul Chanthakoummane was guilty of murdering real-estate agent Sarah Walker on July 8,2006.    Chanthakoummane                                                                                     

Why was this trash put back out on the street? He was released because of a "prison overcrowding law". The sick,stinking trash was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole. He should've been executed.








Sarah Walker was beautiful.

She was the mother of two children.

She sold homes for a living.

Everyone  loved her.

Except for her murderer.

sarah walker

Work together to prevent injury and protect yourself and your loved ones from violent criminals.

Be safe !

Retarded scumbags, like the piece of crap that killed her, are everywhere !

What a chilling story....Overcrowded prison systems should be no reason for letting people run free and do this type thing.

You are a very good writer and I like your blogs.

Posted by Barbara S. Duncan, GRI, e-PRO, Executive Broker, Searcy AR (RE/MAX Advantage) about 12 years ago

David, that is just so sad and so horrible. I spent 10 years sitting new construction and it can be very dangerous. From what you have written it sounds like Sarah touched many lives. So very sad for her little ones! I never understand our legal system! I have a son who is a cop and he just doesn't understand sometimes how people keep committing and keep getting out. He just does his job - the court system is horrible in this country! My thoughts and prayers are with Sarah's family and friends.

Posted by Jo Olson, Retired - HOMEFRONT Realty @ LAKE Roosevelt (HOMEFRONT Realty) about 12 years ago

Thank you, Barbara. Yes, it is no excuse to release these criminals.

Posted by David Saks ((retired)) about 12 years ago

David, So sad.  Sarah was so beautiful and so senseless.  The worst part is that the laws are for the criminals, not those of us who live good lives.   We have to be vigilant.

Posted by Audrey June-Forshey, GRI, Gaithersburg, MD (RE/MAX Realty Services) about 12 years ago

Holy Moly David - "Oh Baby, Baby It's A Wild World" (thank you Cat Stevens)

Posted by Alyce Martin, Albuquerque - THE Place To Be! (The Realty Group, LLC) about 12 years ago

Thank you, Jo. The complexities of the law are indeed intricate and compounded by faulty decision making in the prison system.

Posted by David Saks ((retired)) about 12 years ago

Yes we do, Ashley. I agree, the laws seem to be very unfair at times. I'm glad to hear from you.

Posted by David Saks ((retired)) about 12 years ago

Indeed, it is, Alyce. And deadly. It's good to hear from you.

Posted by David Saks ((retired)) about 12 years ago

How tragic.  Perhaps, they should have security at model homes.  The agent is a sitting duck.  I agree there is a problem with the system used to solve overcrowding of prisons, but some psycho who has not been in prison can do the same thing.  It is all too obvious that the agent is there alone during parts of the day.

Posted by Marie Meyer, Orange County New York Realtor (Keller Williams Realty) about 12 years ago

I agree, Marie. The world is full of deperate, dangerously reckless, violent scum. I'm glad to hear from you.

Posted by David Saks ((retired)) about 12 years ago

Perhaps those who support the abolishment of the death penalty can rehabilitate this wayward soul and make him a productive member of society. What a joke. I'm with you. This scum should have never been walking the earth, never mind being out on parole. Because he was, a beautiful, and actual productive member of society is not here. And 2 children are without their mother. Shame on us.

Posted by Jim Albano, Team - Jean-Marie Vantuno / Realtors North Jersey Real Estate (Prudential Damiano Realty ) about 12 years ago

I want to see that scumbag cremated and reduced to a burned out cinder, Jim, not rehabilitated.

Posted by David Saks ((retired)) about 12 years ago


Thank you for your vivid account of what happened and the points that you made.  We do need to be safe out in our world of Real Estate and we need to be constantly reminded about the dangers that we face everyday.

Posted by Don Rogers, Realtor, Broker, CDPE, GRI, OnullFallon MO & St Charles County MO homes (Keller Williams Realty Chesterfield) about 12 years ago

Too often we Realtors fail to see the jeopardy we place ourselves in when working open houses, or model homes, this chilling account is a vivid reminder that we are vunerable.  Thank you for reminding us, that we must be very careful out there. What a terrible waste of a beautiful person.

Posted by Allison Stewart, St. Cloud Fl Realtor, Osceola County Real Estate 407-616-9904 (St.Cloud Homes ) about 12 years ago

It is sad.  Every year in real estate I hear these stories.  In Atlanta we had 2 subdivision agents killed a short while ago.  This is a good reason not to do "Open Houses!"  You never know who is coming in!  Also another good reason for Realtors to have a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

Posted by Jim Crawford, Jim Crawford Atlanta Best Listing Agents & REALTOR (Maximum One Executive REALTORS®) about 12 years ago

Indeed, we do, Don. I'm glad to hear from you and hopes that this day finds you in good health as your staff and family.

Posted by David Saks ((retired)) about 12 years ago

Thank you, Allison. I'm honored to hear from you. Hope your doing fine this day.

Posted by David Saks ((retired)) about 12 years ago

The concealed carry laws are tough, but the permit is a good idea for those who can be responsible with the privilege, Jim. I've had my permit for many years, from the days when it was required that I attend weapons training classes, pass a written examination, and go through a 90-120 day backround check with the Tennessee Department of Investigation and the FBI, in addition to posting a mandatory fifty thousand dollar bond with the Shelby County Sheriff's Department which was required of all concealed-carry permit holders in Memphis at that time. I agree with you. Realtors should always be protected. I hope your having a fine day. Great to hear from you.

Posted by David Saks ((retired)) about 12 years ago

Thanks to all for your comments, thus far. It's now nearly two years since Sarah's passing.

Posted by David Saks ((retired)) about 12 years ago

I just saw this on discovery Id...I am so sad about this beautiful human being     murdered by a low life like him.  It is true that nothing can bring her back but rest assurred u shall meet again in heaven..Our justice system is very flawed..These violent offenders need to stay behind bars...This world if full of evil and I strongly suggest that real estate agents don't show homes without a weapon or without a hubby or b/friend as back up...It's just too much of a risk...Peace to her family.

Posted by cherri hairston over 8 years ago

Thanks for your comment, Cherri.

Posted by David Saks ((retired)) over 8 years ago

David: Your post, written with such passion, has me in tears for the poor young woman and mother! It is unacceptable that this sort of low-life was able to walk free for any length of time. I can only say that the chances of him surviving very long in the prison system will be very slim--others of his sort will take care of him!

I pray for her family and will keep her children in my thoughts for a very long time....

Posted by Paula Hathaway, REALTOR, LBA, ...A Local Expert in all The Hamptons (Douglas Elliman Real Estate) over 8 years ago

Thank you for sharing this story with us and stories like this need to be told. Two things, Realtors need to be aware of these possibilities and do anything possible to protect themseleve.

There is something wrong with our justice system. Actually killing him for this crime would be too easy.

Posted by Joe Petrowsky, Your Mortgage Consultant for Life (Mortgage Consultant, Right Trac Financial Group, Inc. NMLS # 2709) over 8 years ago

This is all too common in our industry and the attacks and assaults that are NOT reported are legendary.  Safety and PREcaution are keys!

Posted by Wallace S. Gibson, CPM, LandlordWhisperer (Gibson Management Group, Ltd.) over 8 years ago

What a tragic story. Just terrible and my heart breaks for her friends and family. I think that it is total insanity to let people out of prisons due to overcrowding. Why make rules to begin with. Our system is way broken and really needs to be fixed.

Posted by Diane Grady (Endless Summer Realty) over 8 years ago

Hi David,

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

It is a dangerous world, and there are certain parts of our profession that make it even more so.


Posted by Phil Leng, Phil Leng - Retired (Retired) over 8 years ago

Kidnapping felon out on parole becasue of prison over crowding. What kind of system do we have? What judge would let him out?

Posted by Edward Gilmartin (CRE) over 8 years ago

ahhh , my condolences to her family and friends

Posted by Bianca Marijan, Broker Owner of Independent Real Estate Brokerage (City Brokerage, Hamilton) over 8 years ago

I recently just wrote about safety first.  This is such a chilling awful story and you told it in exactly the right voice.  We need to be jarred into the realization that there are sick sick people out there putting us in danger.  I've suggested and thank you for your stark and frank observation.

Posted by Mona Gersky, GRI,IMSD-Taking the mystery out of real estate. (MoonDancer Realty, Dillsboro,NC) over 8 years ago

David, thanks for bringing this post back to remind us all of the dangers out there.

Posted by Connie Harvey, Realtor - Nashville TN Real Estate (Pilkerton Realtors) over 8 years ago

Sorry but life in prison is not a good response. Should be executed and not after 20 years of appeals. People that do things like this need to held accountable. Sarah's poor family.

Posted by Bill Reddington, Destin Florida Real Estate (Re/max By The Sea) over 8 years ago

David-- thank you for keeping us informed of items like this.  They help keep us keep ourselves and loved ones safe.  I agree with Bill (#32) that this penalty was insufficient for the crime.

Posted by Steven Cook (No Longer Processing Mortgages.) over 8 years ago

Many thanks Paula, Joe, Wallace, Diane, Phil, Edward, Bianca, Mona, Connie, Bill and Steven for your kind thoughts. Sarah should always be remembered. Please be safe.
