“We’ll know that, I know that, it is somebody that came back and forth and stuff,” said neighbor, Linda Tate. “It makes you kind of weary to even open the door.”
“Especially a veteran,” said neighbor, Barbara Dasak. “I mean somebody that was an amputee. I mean, I just feel so bad for this whole situation…It doesn’t really make me feel settled in my heart, but it makes me happy that he is caught.”
Scoby faces two counts of first-degree murder. He is expected to appear in bond court on Saturday.
