Investigators later reviewed body camera footage of Holtgraver where he allegedly told police the victims ripped him off many times and went to the home to “make things right.”
A neighbor who knows Holtgraver and the victims can't believe what happened.
“It was chaos. There was cops everywhere. There was ambulances everywhere. It as pretty wild down here last night,” John Skryp said.
