Neighbors say there are three words that best describe Steven Lanosga, 28, normal college kid.
Hillary May, a neighbor, says, "Sometimes we would get home from work and school together."
Mary Parker adds, "He was always friendly and smiling."
In fact, that is also what they say about his girlfriend, Annie Ulmer, 24.
Parker adds, "I never heard them arguing or anything.
Knowing that, Mary Parker says, it is hard to believe that the two were found inside a Crown Street apartment with gunshot wounds.
Cleveland Police say Ulmer died shortly after they got there.
Evie West, with the Cleveland Police Department, says, "We're still in the early stages of the investigation, trying to figure out what happened, who was involved."
Neighbors tell us the two are from Louisiana and worked as pharmacy technicians at a local drug store, all the while going to Cleveland State College.
West adds, "They will check how many times that we've been called to that residence, if there's been domestics there, if they've been arrested before, if they have warrants, so all that comes with the investigation."
Officers say their number one priority Tuesday was to interview Lanosga.
They will then take his testimony, along with the evidence they have collected, to make sense out of what happened.
May adds, "Was it a murder, was it a suicide, I guess that would be my top question."
But Parker says knowing a motive will not get this image out of her head, the image of one student's mother collapsing on the concrete early Tuesday morning.
West adds, "Thanksgiving will never be the same for this family."
Neighbors tell us Lanosga only lived on Crown Street for a few months.
Police are not releasing any more information until his girlfriend's autopsy results are back.
