Police continue to conduct a death investigation with many questions still unanswered.

GLENVIEW, Ill. (WLS) -- Glenview police remained on the scene Wednesday morning nearly two days after a man was found dead inside of a home on the 700 block of Long Road.

There are still many unknowns as the investigation continues with neighbors now asking their own questions about what happened.

"We're just really worried about any ongoing risk for us," neighbor Eve Levin said. "I mean it's very sad what happened."

Glenview neighbors expressed their concerns and asking questions after a man was found dead inside of a home on the 700-block of Long Road.

"We're all like why did this happen in Glenview, especially on our street?" neighbor Gabby Schnepper said.

With little information being released from police, the man's death remains a puzzling mystery for those that call this quiet north suburban street home.

"Everyone kind of doesn't know how to feel around here," Levin said. "My daughter went and slept at her dad's house because she felt just weird being here."

Glenview police said they responded to the home Monday night after getting a call about an injured man. But when officers arrived, the man was dead.

Yellow evidence markers could be seen on the ground as investigators left the home with bags of possible evidence.

"I walked outside and there were three cop cars, an ambulance and a bunch of chaos in front of the house," Schnepper said.

Close friends of the man say he was from Iraq and recently purchased the home in June with plans for his fiancée living in the Middle Eastern country to move in.

Neighbors said he was rehabbing the home.

"He was going on with success about family, future, but it doesn't happen," close friend Mohanad Hanoon said.

With police still on standby outside the home and crime scene tape still up Long Road neighbors say they would just like some more clarity from police.

"We don't really know what happened," Schnepper said. "We have no information, so we're all really curious to know what went down."
