Neighbors in south Tulsa want to know when the feds are going to sell the house belonging to fugitive Maureen Long.

Investigators say Long skipped the country after agents shut down her alternative cancer clinic and she got indicted in Kansas.

Documents show the feds filed for forfeiture of the property in June 2015, so a lot of the neighbors want to know why is it still sitting empty and losing its value, and why hasn't it been sold.

The house looks sad in a neighborhood filled with expensive homes, well-maintained homes.

The garage door has a board nailed to it, the coy pond is a stagnant, mosquito-infested mess. Neighbors say it's much better now after marshals spent four days mowing and picking up trash.

"Past six months, it has been really run down - lot never mowed, yard never sprinkled, trash everywhere," neighbor Gary Soldersrom said.

Long left after federal agents shut down her Camelot Cancer Care Clinic located in a Tulsa hotel.

Her Kansas indictment says she preyed on people desperately seeking a cancer cure by selling them unapproved drugs she called her secret sauce.

Everything came to a head when a Florida woman in Long's care died.

Long's late husband, created a fictional country called the Principality of New Utopia. That country's U.S. embassy is listed as the home near 108th and Sheridan, but that didn't keep the U.S. government from seizing it.

U.S. attorney Danny Williams said marshals are in charge of selling the house, which is being handled out of D-C. He says he will contact them to try to speed up the process.

Neighbors say the sooner somebody buys the home, moves in and makes it nice again, the better it will be for the entire neighborhood.
