PHOENIX -- For the past two weeks, a home has captivated a North Phoenix neighborhood near Seventh Street and Mountain View Road.

Curious onlookers creep by to get an up-close look at the home of Bryan Miller. He's accused in the brutal murders of 22-year-old Angela Brosso and 17-year-old Melanie Bernas.

Police say Brosso went out for a bike ride in November 1992. The next day, her headless body was found in a park south of Cactus Road.

Eleven months later, police say Bernas was murdered while riding her bike along the Arizona canal. Police say Bernas suffered stab wounds similar to Brosso.

Olga Donalds lives across the street from Miller.

"People would come in with cars, park their cars, and look around," Donalds said.

Donalds said thieves have been looting the property since the investigation wrapped up last week.

"When the police left, it was a lot of stuff in there, and then you wake up in the morning and half the stuff is gone," Donalds said.

The problem was so bad that Shirley Rogers' son-in-law took it upon himself to fix a broken back door and post signs warning people to stay away.

"I've noticed quite a few things moved around," Rogers said.

Other neighbors have had run-ins with looters, too.

"One night, (the man who lives around the corner) chased away six different people because his dog was barking at them," Rogers said.

Late Friday morning, Phoenix police showed up at the home to make sure it was secure. One of the detectives told CBS 5 they had received several calls from concerned neighbors.
