How well do we really know our neighbors? I say hello to anyone I see while I walk my dog in the morning and evenings but that's about all it is. "Good morning! What a beautiful day." Things like that are exchanged but I can't say I really know my neighbors after living in the same home for 2 years.

Take this Adirondack neighborhood. All accounts are that the town is quiet and some would say nothing much goes on here but that is no longer the case. New York State Police are investigating the death of a 51-year-old woman and her daughter might be involved.
