Neighbor react to arrest in 2009 "cold case"


For 50 years, Bev Vauble has been living across the street from where Mark Koster's body was found.

She said she would see Koster getting his mail, and smelled the smoke coming from his pipe when he was outside smoking.

Vauble said she walks by the house a lot and thinks about the horrible crime that happened in there.

"When they found the body, I just thought they'd never find the guy that killed him, to be honest with you. I'm glad for the family's sake that they finally found the guy," Vauble said.

Vauble said she hopes this brings closure to the family and all those who knew Koster.

As of now, there is no set time to bring the alleged murderer, John Green, back to Iowa, but authorities say they expect to do so within the next week or so.
