Whatever turns in Stephanie Terlisner's life took her to the house at the end of Cool Morn Drive on Saturday evening, it was the wrong place and the wrong time.

At about 7 p.m., an armed robber burst into the home and shot Terlisner in the chest, The Dallas Morning News reported Sunday.

Neither Terlisner nor her unborn child, who was expected to arrive at any moment, survived.

Neighbors told CBS 11 that the house was a hive of drugs and prostitution. Its 57-year-old owner was arrested last summer for crack possession. Last month, two visitors were picked up in the driveway with crack pipes, according to a police report.

Terlisner herself has had a couple of run-ins with the law. She pleaded guilty to three counts of misdemeanor theft earlier this year and was facing a felony drug possession charge.

Police have not yet found a suspect in the killing. Her family hopes they do soon.

"You don't expect to have to bury or attend services of your grown grandchildren," Terlisner's grandmother told CBS 11. "They are supposed to bury you."

"Police are searching for a suspect "
"Police have not released a suspect description"

Everything happens for a reason. A crack & whore house is no where to be hanging out when you're about to give birth.

This story leaves a lot of information out:

- Was Ms. Terslinger living at the house, or was she visiting?

- What is her relationship between her and the owner?

- Was she the 57 year old owner?  Although admittingly, she does not look to be 57 and was pregnant.

- Was she dealing drugs from the house?

- Was she making a pickup from the house?

- Was she doing some sort of "Weeds" or "Breaking Bad" thing?

- Any details on the felony drug possession charge?

- Any other information on her background; marital status, other children, where did she actually live?

The irony is that the area is included in the city's Neighborhood Stabilization Program.

@Dar_Lalalala Yeah, she deserved it.  That way we don't have to feel bad about it.

Based on absolutely nothing. It's called a guess.

I don't believe I said she "deserved it". I said "everything happens for a reason". I would be willing to bet that had she NOT been in a crack/whore house, she wouldn't have been shot to death.

@JaniceA Fair enough. But considering she was in a known drug house, I might guess that drugs/money were involved.
