GONZALES- Neighbors are reacting to the arrests of five men connected to the gruesome murder of Shirley and Irwin Marchand and Douglas Dooley.

"I didn't know we that kind of people in our parish, drive along the road and see someone in their car you don't know if he'd kill you in a heartbeat or not, so that in itself makes me really a lot more cautious," said Wayne Brignac, who lives a few homes away from the murder scene.

Many people were relieved to hear Ascension Parish Deputies made the arrests, but say they won't let their guard down.

"I think we're definitely relieved that they were caught, but I think we'll remain very cautious of our property and surroundings and things that are happening so that we can all remain safe," said Linda Schexnayder, who lives nearby.

Shirley Marchand was laid to rest today next to her son Doug in Natchez, Mississippi.
