"She seemed like a pretty nice lady. You know she was an older lady, kept mostly to herself. I saw her in passing coming in and out of her building and I'm going in and out as well. She would wave and I would wave, you know. The only thing I really observed were the presence of the police, the ambulance, the fire department, but the reason that I came out here was because I heard the sirens," Mark Young, a neighbor of the woman, said.
