A neighbor, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said investigators asked him about the people living in the home.

“They were in their mid-50s with a teen child that lives with them... They are very quiet.”

The man, who said the family had lived in the neighborhood for about two years, described them as "healthy and active personalities" who did "more walking than most people on the street.”
