The whole situation

A scary situation happening almost three weeks after the tragic killings of the Barry family. Where police discovered five bodies at that residence.

Nearby resident Maddie Eldred says, "I definitely am terrified because it has happened multiple times already it’s definitely something we don’t want in a neighborhood especially families, kids living here. If this is going to keep growing and the crime is going to get worse. I mean I can’t imagine the fear."

This remains an active and ongoing investigation.
