Investigation determines local attorney was murdered
The investigation into the shooting death of local attorney Larry Gilliam has resulted in his wife, Lisa Gilliam being indicted for murder.
According to London Police Chief Stewart Walker, the results of the investigation were presented to a Laurel County Grand Jury on March 14. Friday, the grand jury indicted Lisa Gilliam on one count of murder.
Police were called to Larry Gilliam’s office at 129 East 4th Street in London on the afternoon of Jan. 7 in response to complaint of a shooting.
Larry Gilliam had been shot one time in the chest. He was taken to St. Joseph Hospital in London where he died.
“Mr Larry Gilliam and his wife, Lisa Gilliam were the only two people present when the shooting occurred,” Walker stated.
The Laurel County Major Crimes Task Force began an investigation to determine whether the cause of death was murder or suicide.
Walker emphasized that a grand jury indictment does not imply an individual is guilty, but that there is sufficient probable cause to believe that a crime has been committed.
