"Very brave lady," said Letisha Degraca, a Seminole Heights resident. "Thank god she did it because if not, he'd still be roaming these streets."
Another woman, Amanda Doyle, said she had planned to move to the area prior to the killings, but then had misgivings. But now that Donaldson is behind bars, she says any lingering fears she had are now gone.
"I was going to move to this area very soon," she said. "I was actually second guessing it because of this whole situation. I am totally throwing that second guess out the window now."
Businesses like The Blind Tiger Cafe in Seminole Heights are now more hopeful than ever that the small business community will continue to recover, now that people will feel safer coming into the neighborhood.
