maybe it represent strength of marie buck and this neighborhood who left these candles here right on the steps where killer walk up and down on christmas eve. look over here to the right you can see her trash can there, if you think marie buck wasn't out here, this early every day making sure her trash men were taken care of food and drink wise you are dreaming. we heard from a man right now, with you will hear from look at marie buck christmas eve even more devastating because she would trust up as santa claus christmas eve this year she never got a chance to. >> to hear somebody not even robbing her but coming in right after you guys come to pick up the trash and shooting her to death. >> that take that she was shot, i actually saw perfect standing right there at the door. she waved. we waved back. we just kept going. so yeah, it is a shame what happened. it is amazing how people just come in the store and just
shoot somebody without even any remorse or what so ever. when we came here and we saw the roses, and the candles, i was, you know, just devastating. >> she did everything. if you needed something, she would lend it to you, if you needed it, she would give it to you. i just don't understand why somebody would do this. >> it is baffling why they would kill an 81 year-old lady and take nothing. if they came in she would have just said hey, take it, you know what i mean, there would be no fight, in argument, no nothing, just to kill an 81 year-old lady is mind blowing for real, like we cannot figure out why somebody would do this. >> police can't either. we're asking the tough questions, the cops obviously asked did she ever yell at any kid, did she ever catch anybody shaft lifting a heene word to say to anybody over anything that they have done, smash a bottle out front. nobody remembers, anything,
her raising her voice in 44 years. those two last guys grew up, around corner so we have two generations of people that knew her and i grew up around store owners like her and i remember them yelling at kid occasionally even though they were as nice but nobody can ever remember her raising her voice and it is as he said just mind blowing and baffling and no, she did not have surveillance people because she is kind of person who thought why do i need surveillance, why would anybody do anything to me. i seen goodness in everybody, i don't need surveillance camera. she never thought she needed them her family said. that why is there is in surveillance at least here. police hope maybe around the corner somewhere they will go door to door hoping to catch video from christmas eve morning of that killer even coming or going and maybe find out why, somebody would do this. >> stories extending on social media marie was a icon in south philadelphia. i grew up with her in south philadelphia and she fed federal us all in the
