People who live near the apartment building where police found the body of a woman on Thursday say they're still in shock.
"You hear about things like that, but this is literally a block away from where I live," says Emma Darnell.
She rooms in a house on Orange Street in Macon with three other women.
She says she usually feels safe, but since police found the body at Barristers Hall apartments, she's been on edge.
"We have an alarm system in the house, so I feel very safe inside the house, but I think a lot of it is just when you're out between the house and the car and that type of thing," says Darnell.
Crystal Bedgood calls Georgia Avenue home. She and her four children live just down the street from where the homicide investigation was taking place.
She says she felt her children were safe in the neighborhood until now.
