Details: On December 1, 1981, forty year old Real Estate Agent Virginia “Ginger” Bradford Freeman was murdered behind a rural vacant residence in Brazos County, which she was showing a potential buyer. Virginia had been assigned a telephone call at the real estate office where she worked. The unknown male caller was interested in property in the Bryan/College Station area, saying he had cash to invest. Virginia gave the caller directions to a rural property listed for sale and made arrangements to meet the caller at that location. The victim left the real estate office at about 3:00 PM and stopped at her own residence, where she told her children about the potential sale.

Sometime after 7:00 PM, Virginia’s husband, Charles, reported Virginia missing to the Brazos County Sheriff's Office. Charles and one of Virginia’s co-worker’s husbands began searching for Virginia and found her vehicle parked at a residence for sale on Greens Prairie Road. They found Virginia’s body behind the vacant residence. An autopsy revealed that at approximately 3:30 PM, Virginia had been struck on her head, strangled, and stabbed.
