Martin Solomon is friends with a guy who was the alleged mass murderer's neighbor in Ipswich before she and her husband moved to Alabama. He posts the neighbor's less-than-fond reminiscences of her:
... The day they moved out I was getting home as their moving van pulled away and went up the street. I got out of my car and a bunch of the neighbors were outside and I yelled "Ding Dong the witch is dead!" and a cheer went up all around. Soon after the new people showed up to clean the house and move some things in and the whole street celebrated with a pizza party. We welcomed the new folks with open arms. It was like the sun finally came out again.
