An autopsy is scheduled for Sunday.

"We know there's a death happened, but how, why, what happened -- we don't know," one neighbor told Radzius.

"Until we know that it's murder, I don't think there's a reason for me to be concerned," another woman said.

"Both ways, it's concerning, yeah," another woman said. "But if it's a murder, it's even more concerning because I live in this neighborhood, and I want it to be a safe neighborhood."
