"To think what she went through in those few minutes or well not few minutes. It is hard to tell how long she suffered. It's just like a bad dream," said resident Gail Carnefix.
According to the court documents, police seized Daniels' computer, cellphone and other electronic devices along with evidence from the crime scene.
That included part of the drywall, carpet, even her trash from her apartment.
All of the search warrants made public Friday focused on the days immediately following her death.
It would be a month before they arrested a neighbor, Sharman Odom, for the murder.
Even with news of his arrest some who live in the area are still cautious.
"To think that I used to run by that set of apartments all the time and I have actually changed my route. Not really scared it would happen because I’ve ran that route for a year now, but it makes you a little nervous," said runner Johna Sweezy.
"It makes me a little scared. I'm looking move out on my own soon. I'm a little worried about it. I don't want to live alone," said resident Stephanie Weikle.
A pretrial hearing for Odom is set for Sept. 8 where he will learn whether or not this will be a death penalty case.
Meanwhile, Channel 9 discovered that the district attorney will be seeking the death penalty against Odom, the man accused of sexually assaulting and killing the popular 31-year-old Discovery High School counselor.
Investigators said Odom kidnapped and sexually assaulted Daniels before strangling her on June 27. Her body was discovered inside her home at the Windsor Apartments in Newton.
