Neighbors on edge after murder of elderly man

Posted by: Mario Hendricks - bio | email

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - If anything happens on Clarke Street in west Montgomery, neighbor Mattie Smith probably saw it happen.

Smith looks out for her neighbors but she still can't believe what happened next door to her friend Loyd Seymour. He was killed just feet from her front porch.

"I had been knowing his sister and him for 50 years. He comes down and visit," said Smith.

Smith says one of Seymour's friends found him dead with a stab wound to the chest.

"They found him slumped all over, and blood all over the floor, " added Smith.

Friends and neighbors that knew Loyd Seymour say he was an elderly man that kept to himself and always kept his doors locked.

"I was shocked, looked like I had seen Loyd going out of his house all wrapped up. I wanted to go to church, but I told my son he would just have to go. I wasn't up for a crowd," sighed Smith.

Smith says she hasn't slept since she got the news. To her it's hard to do normal tasks like taking care of her garden and knowing that Seymour isn't just a few steps away.
