Detectives are conducting a homicide investigation and crime scene investigators were seen processing evidence throughout Saturday.
Several neighbors who declined to be interviewed on the record told the Sun-Star the homicide was shocking, disturbing and concerning, especially because there are several children in the neighborhood.
