She said she heard a loud thud. It sounded like "wood hitting wood," although she's not sure what the impact was exactly. The next thing she recalled was hearing screams.

As she shared this information, she expressed that it was difficult for her to even think about.

The neighbor also said Oestrike seemed like a "nice guy," and he "kept to himself."
