      "Everyone is locking their doors. Everyone has the same thoughts. It has to be someone in the area. There's someone in the area who knows something about it."

      "It's something I never thought would happen around here. You hear about things happening so tragically but never something so close to home. That really touches you," said Erica Grant.{}

      Grant says her sister worked with Dana at Burger King. She remembers Dana as a nice girl that wouldn't harm anyone.{}

      "She was a really good girl and she couldn't understand who could have done this to her and

      And that's what just about what everyone wants to know why But also who?{}{}

      "How could they take young girls just starting their lives? The one had a young child, a baby. It's just hard to believe someone could take a life that easily."{}
