“We thought it was a drug bust or something like that. You don’t expect that your next-door neighbour has murdered somebody,” she said.
“When you actually find out what’s going on, you watch your neighbour be handcuffed and taken away, it’s quite scary. We really feel for the young woman’s family. It’s really tragic for them.”
On Monday morning, detectives returned to the scene to gather more evidence, searching inside a car parked in front of the house.
The South Australia Police have urged anyone with information related to the incident to come forward and contact Crime Stoppers.
