CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The dismembered body found buried behind an Ashburn home has neighbors talking and police combing the crime scene for clues.

Danielle Beiriger lives next door.

"It's just so freaky, it's so weird, right here, my backyard basically right next to their backyard, where this all happened. I'm just scared," said Beiriger.

The gruesome discovery of a deceased man was made Friday afternoon on the southwest side. Beiriger says her neighbors kept to themselves.

"They stayed inside a lot, peeking through the windows. I have a garden right next to their backyard and they kind of gave me the creeps because I would go back there and they would stare at me and I would be scared to even water my garden," said Beiriger in an interview with FOX 32's Tisha Lewis.

"They're quiet people. They're friendly quiet people who I didn't talk to that much, just a hi and bye situation, so I never really got to know them," said Daniel Velazquez.

Neighbors say a married couple lived in the home and their teenage daughter dropped off her children once a week.

"She just kind of was running out the house with the kids and it looked like she was in a hurry and I didn't really know what was going on because I was just, came back from an appointment with my doctor, so I had just walked in on the whole thing, the cops were here, the girl was leaving and they were questioning people in the neighborhood," said Velazquez.

Saturday evening a Chicago Police Forensic Services truck sat in the driveway of the home turned crime scene while officers with blue shoe covers and purple gloves came in and out the premises.

"It feels very unfortunate that it happened right across the street from my house. Like I said, we've lived here 18 years and I never imagined anything like this would happen," said Selena Guadalupe.

As of Saturday night, there were still no arrests or charges.
