Chilliwack Realtor Aaron Tschritter died in an early-morning crash on expressway in Dallas

UPDATE:

A Chilliwack Realtor who was in Texas for a football game and was reported missing died in a fatal car crash.

Aaron Tschritter died in an early-morning crash with another person when the vehicle they were in hit an electric pole on Thursday, Nov. 25 on the Good Latimer Expressway in Dallas, Texas.

“Heading home today empty handed. The love of my life was in a fatal car accident in Dallas Texas trying to get back to his hotel,” his wife Melissa Tschritter wrote on Facebook on Saturday, Nov. 27.

Aaron Tschritter travelled to the United States this week to take in an American Thanksgiving Day National Football League game.

The 29-year-old was supposed to meet up with a group of friends at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, but he never showed.

Aaron’s father, Richard, said his son was in a BMW when the collision happened.

“I believe the driver was showing Aaron what his car could do and unfortunately the results were fatal,” Richard said. “I would like to thank all for their help in trying to locate my son.”

Aaron was a local realtor with Century 21, and has a young son.

“I appreciate everyone who has reached out, shared and helped in any capacity during this time,” Melissa said. “Please pray for us and especially our little boy who has just lost his daddy.”

The family is asking for privacy at this time.

Friends and family are searching for a missing Chilliwack man who may be in Texas.

Aaron Tschritter travelled to the United States this week to take in an American Thanksgiving Day National Football League game between the Dallas Cowboys and Las Vegas Raiders.

The 29-year-old was supposed to meet up with a group of friends at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, but he never showed.

His wife, Melissa Tschritter, posted on Facebook Friday morning Nov. 27, appealing for help.

She said he was last seen Nov. 25 at 2 a.m., leaving Vinty Club in downtown Dallas.

“He has made no contact with family, which is incredibly unlike him,” she wrote. ” His phone is going straight to voicemail. We have checked his location, credit card statements, etc. We have also called at least 10 hospitals in the area to see if he may be there. Nothing.”

Aaron Tschritter is a local realtor with Century 21. He is described as Caucasian, five-foot-10 and 190 pounds with short, brown hair, hazel eyes and a birthmark on his right forearm.

Dallas Police have a file open. Anyone contacting them can reference file number 213579-2021.
