    Thanks K0tt0nta1l from me as well,although it is still a little unsettling as I do live near the complex. Hope they do continue to update the article.

    The woman who passed was my next door neighbor. There was no foul play involved. Unfortunately she had health issues and passed away while taking care of a neighbors dog in the next building. It is very sad - everyone in the complex knew her, she will be missed dearly.

    Thanks kOttonta1! I have family over there too.

    I'm looking to see if this was an accident or criminal in nature. I've advised them to check the window locks, bar the backdoor, keep the firearms handy until they get more info. Would be a breath of releif to know if it was an accident/heart attack situation not a lurking killer; no offense meant in insensitivity since it's someone you know. The continued police presence in the area is unsettling as it suggests it wasn't an accident.

    The person who was found outside of laurel oaks was a woman who lived at laurel oaks. That is all the information that I have been informed of that has been released. The woman was a good friend of my mother and stepfather who also live at laurel oaks. I hope this article will be updated once more details are known.

    I'm with Thought Criminal WS!! Would be nice to know if it was male or female as well and some more information. Especially if you live near the complex!

    Wish there were more details. Like was the deceased a resident, or did someone find a random body dumped???
