Duluth Homicide Suspect Arrested, Charged

A man has been charged in connection to a murder that happened in Duluth in May.

On May 30 at 6:55 p.m. Duluth police responded to an address in the 100 block of Fir Avenue on a report of a deceased person.

That’s where they found the body of 52-year-old Lisa Jean Isham of Duluth.

An autopsy was conducted by the St. Louis County Medical Examiner and it was determined that Lisa Isham died as the result of a stabbing.

On Thursday, July 30, 2015, the St. Louis County Attorney Office issued a warrant for the arrest of 63-year-old William James Holisky II of Duluth for 2nd degree Murder with Intent for the homicide of Lisa Isham.

Holisky is being held in the Douglas County Jail on unrelated charges.

Those charges in Douglas County include five counts of criminal damage to property, a charge of disorderly conduct, one charge of stalking and a charge of battery.

Duluth police say Holisky has prior criminal convictions for assault as well.
