One woman is being credited with saving the lives of her neighbors. Psychology professor Jeremy Safran, 66, was bludgeoned to death inside his $2 million home in Brooklyn, New York. A neighbor may have saved the lives of the professor's wife and daughter. She actually saw the accused killer breaking into the house. “He was looking left and right left and right and then he stepped inside and closed the door lightly so it wouldn't slam,” neighbor Doreen Giuliano told Inside Edition.
