newsTimesLive writes that the murder of a Gauteng estate agent has brought home the dangers of the job.  Hanlie Lategan was found dead in a stream in Randfontein, 20km away from where she arranged to meet potential home-buyers from Cape Town on Monday.  

Her cellphone and bank cards were missing from her purse.  CCTV footage from Krugersdorp Private Hospital shows her withdrawing cash from an ATM before being driven away.  She had arranged to meet "potential buyers".  The Gauteng secretary of the Institute of Estate Agents, Rachel Gouws, said:  "We have three to four seminars a month.  Of the 50 people who attend, up to 30 tell us of security incidents."
