When Action News knocked on Short's door, no one answered. But there were signs all over the door that demand privacy and no visitors. Neighbors say despite the tight-knit community there they didn't know Short, who kept to himself.

"Just shocking someone that age would do that, but actually a perfect place to do it, right? Retirement village, who would suspect it going on there?" said [Fresno police Lieutenant] Gomez.
