CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Neighbors in a south Charlotte community want answers Wednesday from police after an 82-year-old woman was found dead.

Police aren't saying if they have any suspects in Ina Feldman's death but Wednesday, Eyewitness News saw officers canvassing the Torrey Pines Court neighborhood all day.

Many residents said they'd feel more comfortable if police could at least release a motive.

"I kept asking them questions and they say, well I just can't tell you,' said Bob Morgan.

Even though a patrol unit parked outside the neighborhood, cops aren't answering many questions about the homicide.

The victim's son told Eyewitness News he found her body Tuesday morning and found no signs of trauma, but police won't say how she was killed or why.

"The concern for me is that this was a home invasion, a random act or domestic related," said Warren Turnipseed.

With no arrests, residents are worried they could be next.

"I'm concerned you know, everyone is here now," Morgan said.

Neighbors didn't know much about Feldman but said she walked every day.

Women we found walking Wednesday said they'll now be more aware of their surroundings.

'We all need to take precautions no matter what," Elaine Foster said.

Police went door to door Wednesday asking neighbors questions.

Residents said officers were giving them safety tips.

“They came in and told me how to improve my protection," said Morgan.

Now residents said they're going to take extra precaution by locking their doors, locking the gates outside their home and making sure their outside lights are on.

"I'm going to buy a burglar alarm," Morgan said.

Neighbors said they'll also report anything suspicious to police.

Eyewitness News checked with police and officers have never responded to the victim's house for anything before Tuesday.
