Luebbers' neighbors stunned that he is suspect

By Kim Minugh

John Luebbers' home in the comfortable Summitview subdivision of El Dorado remained roped off with police tape Wednesday afternoon, with an officer and his K9 partner parked out front.

Neighbors said Luebbers and his wife and daughter have lived on Skycrest Drive for about nine years, a welcome addition to a close-knit community.

"We're all flabbergasted about it," said 54-year-old George Lehr, who has known Luebbers all nine years he's lived on the street.

Luebbers is a Steelers fan - anxiously awaiting Sunday's Super Bowl - with a love of motorcycles and off-road vehicles, his neighbors said. His home is neatly kept, with an immaculate white pickup truck parked in the driveway.

"He was a good neighbor - passed out Halloween candy, did the Christmas lights thing," said 58-year-old Henry Collins, who said he has known Luebbers since 2002. "To me, he seemed responsible."
