OKLAHOMA CITY - A quiet southeast side street is now a crime scene.
Ricky Elizalde has lived in the area all of his life, and he considers it a quiet community.
However, on Wednesday, a home that's a few doors down from his became the active crime scene.
“I'm still in shock about it. They're pretty quiet people to have problems like that,” Elizalde said.
It was around 7:45 a.m. when police responded to a call at the home. Once inside, they found a dead body.
The neighborhood was quickly roped off with yellow caution tape, and police cruisers were on both ends of the streets to keep people away from the scene.
It was a sight Elizalde said he's not used to seeing when he looks out his front door.
"Surprising, I really thought it was a dispute, you know, something small, nothing like this," he said.
Investigators were out using metal detectors to find evidence to help them solve the city's 53rd murder in 2017.
Police aren't releasing information about the case, but neighbors do have their theories.
“I guess that was just a domestic dispute,” Elizalde said. “You just don't know. Some people snap at the wrong time. It's just sad."
Police tell us they should have more information on the case Thursday morning.
