    The couple told those neighbors they were heading to the pharmacy. Neighbors say they haven't seen the girlfriend since then.

    "I'm just shocked," said Ray Stingel, one of the neighbors. "To know that you see somebody and then two hours later, they're gone."

    Investigators have not confirmed the details provided by the neighbors but say they consider the man's death suspicious.

    A cause of death is pending an autopsy. If it is ruled a homicide it would be the first homicide in the township in nearly two years.
