Those who live near the crime scenes in Dundee and west Omaha have also been waiting a long time for justice in these murders.

Many neighbors I spoke with say they are very happy with the jury's verdict. They have been waiting for years for at least some kind of closure to this quadruple murder.

For Dundee resident, Paul Taylor, it's a day he’ll never forget.

“I came out and I hear the fire engine come up and i said what the hell is going on and it stopped over there at the hunter's house,” said Taylor.

He lives in the neighborhood where 11-year-old Thomas Hunter and their housekeeper Shirlee Sherman were murdered march of 2008.

“I kept watching and all the sudden all of the firemen walked out and they just had their heads hung down and said something serious happened,” said Taylor.

Taylor remembers it like it happened yesterday 8-years have passed but the emotions still run deep.

“Mrs. Sherman goes to work and doesn't come home and that little boy didn't have a chance,” said Taylor.

Having a teenaged daughter at home, Taylor says he's happy with the verdict and Anthony Garcia wont be a free man, “He's where he can't get to my 16-year-old girl.”

Taylor says he used to see the Hunters out and about all the time, now hoping they will have some end to this long fight for justice.

“I pray for the family, mom and dad over there they'll get along, we'll all get along it's not part of life.” A life Taylor said will never be forgotten which is why he's said they'll never be closure.

“That little Hunter boy isn't home, that hurts, that hurts,” said Taylor.
