“Lot’s of kids out here playing, I’m out here like every day so I’m pretty fairly comfortable with who comes into the neighborhood,” one neighbor who didn’t want to be identified said. “I haven’t had to worry anything about anything like that.”

JSO says they’re still in the early stages of the investigation and they have no leads.
