CAPE CORAL, Fl. - Neighbors react Tuesday night to news that the man found dead in Lehigh Acres Monday was arrested earlier this month after a home invasion in the Cape. 

"If you're going to act and behave like that, neighbors are going to catch on to it at least we were vigilant you know we saw it, we reported it and hopefully this will bring it to closure," says neighbor, Tom Lee.

Lee County deputies have confirmed the death of 50-year old Christopher Brothers as a homicide.  Earlier this month he was the victim in a home invasion.  A day later, narcotics units raided his home and arrested him on heroin charges. 

One neighbor, who did not want be identified, tells WINK News what deputies asked him after Brothers' body was found.

"Yesterday the Lee County Sheriff's were here and they had asked me if I had heard any quarrelling, seen any squatters and seen any gun shots and I said no... it alarmed me when I heard, did I hear any gunshots."

Deputies are still investigating this case.  Anyone with information is asked to contact the Lee County Sheriff's Office.
