Residents of several Suffolk County neighborhoods say they are concerned and outraged after spotting some of the defendants in the body parts case walking freely around town.
Some say they have seen the suspects at a local library, a CVS and eating at the Lindenhurst Diner.
"It has got to change - people don't realize what is going on," one person said. "If it doesn't change, it is going to come to your door."
Amanda Wallace, one of the suspects accused of hacking and scattering human remains across Long Island, was spotted by News 12 crews walking on Montauk Highway in Lindenhurst on Tuesday.
Wallace, Steven Brown, Alexis Nieves and Jeffrey Mackey have all been out without bail on GPS monitors since their arraignments.
Retired NYPD Detective Michael Alcazar says law enforcement is presumably keeping a close eye on all of them with or without GPS monitoring.
Alcazar says them not being behind bars does worry him due to the serious nature of the alleged crimes.
News 12 obtained photos of 59-year-old Donna Conneely, who police confirmed to be the female victim in the human body parts investigation and Malcolm Brown, whose relatives say was the male victim in the case.
None of the suspects have been charged with murder and are all due back in court next week.
