The man and woman are known to each other.

Candice Casey lives just a few houses down and walked past the crime scene taking her kids to their nearby school.

“I was at my son’s graduation and my daughter sent me a message saying someone died on the street so I was freaking out.

“We got home and saw the police everywhere.

“It’s scary. This is just so close to home.”
