Journalists are camped outside Shrien Dewani's house in Bristol awaiting his return from South Africa.
On Monday Judge Jeanette Traverso cleared Dewani of murder after ruling the prosecution case that the bisexual care home boss had arranged the death of his wife Anni was flawed.
A woman who walked down the private drive from Mr Dewani's home in Westbury on Trym said: "I do know he's not coming today. Tomorrow ... I asked the family."
Asked how Mr Dewani and his family were, the woman, who did not give her name, replied: "They are happy, happy."
The millionaire businessman's home - called Prabhu Krupa Villa - is not clearly visible from the busy road connecting Bristol to the M5, where it is accessed through electric gates and a steep driveway.
