Neighbors react to former doctor's arrest


Shocked reaction to the arrest or a former doctor in a quiet East Texas neighborhood, on equally shocking charges.

On Friday, Kilgore police and DEA agents served felony arrest warrants for doctor William Martin Valuck on Chandler street.  Valuck was wanted by Oklahoma law enforcement on nine counts of homicide and forty three counts of drug distribution.

"I'm totally shocked. Because this is a nice peaceful neighborhood. I can't believe it, I can not believe he was living down at the end of our street," says neighbor Judy Nicks.  

Neighbors say they had little contact with Valuck. But worried about the charges against the former doctor,  considering they are within blocks of schools and a church.

"There's schools all over the place out here," says Emily Nicks.

"I have chill bumps right now , its so scary to think that we had no idea," Judy says.

Valuck remains in the Rusk county jail, pending his extradition to Oklahoma.
