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.

Wow, what is wrong with you? Have you considered some of his family members might read this? Have you no consideration for others? If you feel cold and heartless enough to think this man deserved to have his life taken away, then please keep it to yourself.

To lost in the woods how would you feel it if someone said that about your family member? You know this person probably has family that is reading this and I am sure they really loved your comment. Have a heart. So what if you don't like lawyers at least keep that kind of talk to yourself.

I am shocked that an indictment was brought with no gun residue on either hand (someone lost evidence) A partial print on trigger, partial prints can be matched all the time. And basically no other evidence was there but the needed evidence to prove suicide was lost?????????

The medical examiner in Kentucky ruled it suicide? The medical examiner in Kentucky with all their knowledge ruled suicide. NOT MURDER?
