We now know the name of the victim killed in Saturday’s Lincoln Park homicide.

Authorities discovered the body of Lisa Isham, 52, in her home just after 7 p.m. in the 100 block of Fir Avenue.

Rhonda Sievers, a member of Lincoln Park’s Citizen Patrol, told FOX 21 she is surprised by the act of violence — saying it’s typically a low-key neighborhood.

“I [saw] a bunch of cop cars and they were going door to door asking for information, and then I knew something was wrong and they were there overnight,” said Sievers.

“An autopsy was conducted Sunday by the St. Louis County Medical Examiner and was determined that Lisa Jean Isham, died as a result of a stabbing,” said Duluth Police Department’s Information Officer Ron Tinsley.

As a citizen patrol, Sievers typically makes a daily round to check on the neighborhood, but she said she didn’t on Saturday.

“I just walk around the neighborhood every day and I report anything suspicious or anything out of the ordinary to police,” said Sievers.

She said she didn’t think anything of it as it’s typically a low-key neighborhood.

In fact, she told Fox 21 that’s how she remembers the Isham residence as well.

“She usually kept to herself, usually really quiet over there. So, that was shocking,” explained Sievers.

Although police haven’t arrested anyone in Isham’s death, Sievers said she was not worried.

“I’m not scared at all. I have no reason to be scared. I’ve been here all my life, so no reason to be scared,” said Sievers.

At this time, police are investigating leads into the case.

No arrests were made as of Monday night.
