  1. This is such a terrible tragedy Lisa was a good person. This town is so screwed up. How can u listen to someone scream for help and see what is believed to be someone being punched and kicked and not call the police. Shame on her neighbors… They possibly could have saved her life. I hope they can look at themselves in the mirror everyday and see and feel the guilt.
