WILLINGBORO, N.J. (CBS) — The search for a killer continues in Willingboro after a 21-year-old woman was fatally shot. Maribely Lopez’s body was found inside her red sedan on Medley Lane on Thursday morning.
The Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office says it is hoping to make an arrest soon.
On Friday, investigators searched around homes for evidence after raiding a house on Marlboro Lane Thursday night, towing three cars.
Police sources close to the investigation say it is tied to Lopez’s murder, but didn’t say how.
Eyewitness News caught up with one of the residents as he left the home.
“I served my time in the military life,” the man said. “This place is really bad.”
Neighbors say the family has lived there more than 15 years. They say they have no idea why police searched the house.
“I don’t know nothing like that. To me, Marvin is a very nice person because we fix cars together and stuff like that, so that’s the only thing I know about him,” said Arnold Williams.
Lopez is from Lindenwold, about 30 minutes from where her body was discovered.
The Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office is asking anyone with information to come forward.
