THERE GOES THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

So I bought an apartment in North Perth recently and I've been renovating on and off for the past few months, it's almost ready to let, probably 2 days more work and It will look ace. A girl has already asked to rent it, that's good, she's 33, single, has a good steady job, that's good also.
.
She only had one reservation about taking it, she hadn't lived on her own before, always shared and she was a bit nervous about the block of flats the apartment is located in. It's one of those light bricked seventies types. I've made it look pretty groovy on the inside, but outside it's a bit crappy.
.
She was a bit worried about her personal security
.
"Nah look it's really quiet around here" I told her "and I've put some pretty awesome security on the apartment, you'll be as safe as houses"
.
Then on the weekend this happened.
.
Woman, 34, found dead in North Perth unit
.
A POST-MORTEM is being carried out today on the body of a 34-year-old woman who was bashed on Saturday and found dead yesterday in her North Perth home.Police say the woman, Darlene Bell, was found dead on a couch in her flat by her mother.
.
The victim's mother, who made the grim discovery about 6pm yesterday, told police her daughter was viciously assaulted the day before and had several injuries to her head and face, including two black eyes.
.
It is not known yet whether Ms Bell, who had a history of drug use and domestic violence, had been treated in hospital.Police have been searching the area around her home since late yesterday and have cordoned off the block of units in Russell Ave.
.
Detectives are interviewing several people.
.
Yep, turns out that's the block of flats directly across the road from the one I've bought, soon as she reads this she probably wont want to sign the lease. Man, it honestly is really quiet there usually. Very sad that the woman died though, shall be watching for it on the news tonight to get the full story.
.
Edit : the girl taking my apartment has just contacted a friend of mine and said 'I'll even put up with murder to get away from my sister-in-law'!
.
Ha! I can relate to that, I've had a few crappy sister in laws in my time. In fact don't get me started

yeah I know I know, that was all good until I unrolled the kitchen floor covering and it was 700mm short and they've discontinued that colour, so that kind of put a dent in the timing, have sorted that now and moving onwards and upwards ;)
