Court records reveal what slain realtor's coworkers saw, heard during stabbing

Posted: Updated:

New court records detail what coworkers heard and saw the night that Fort Worth realtor Suzanne Parsons was stabbed to death in her office.

Her ex-husband, John St. Angelo, is charged with her Dec. 30 murder.

The details of the stabbing are listed in a Fort Worth Police Department arrest warrant, which shows that once the stabbing began, it only ended because coworkers went in to help. However, by that time, it was too late.

Police say they talked to at least five witnesses.

Coworkers told police they heard horrible screams coming from Parsons' office, and then they saw John St. Angelo standing over her, stabbing her with a large knife. One coworker described the screams as "blood-curdling."

In the document, police say they found Parsons "...lying on the ground in the rear office and was covered in blood."

Coworkers called police and said, "...the maintenance man stabbed his ex-wife."

They later told police on the scene, "....ex-husband John St. Angelo was painting a closet in the building and stabbed Suzanne to death."

The affidavit indicates that at first, coworkers thought St. Angelo was beating up Parsons.

Three co-workers went to a door and found it locked. They unlocked the door, and a witness told police "...she saw John St. Angelo standing over Suzanne and was stabbing her with a large knife. She described Suzanne being repeatedly stabbed."

At that time, the coworkers ran out of the building, and they believe St. Angelo left through a window.

Police say they learned at the scene that Parsons and St. Angelo had gone through a bitter divorce, and that St. Angelo had allegedly threatened to stab Parsons with an icepick while the couple was vacationing in Mexico.

St. Angelo was charged with murder over the weekend. He was arrested after a standoff that happened one day after the stabbing, and he was hospitalized for a few days with what police say was a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
