Unsolved Green Bay Murder of Lisa Holstead

Murder of Lisa Holstead Unsolved After 31 years

August 12, 1986, a day many close to Lisa Holstead will never forget. It was the last time they had heard from or seen her alive. Her murder, Green Bay Police Department case # 14-47,  is the longest running homicide investigation in Brown County.

The last time she was seen alive was after her and her then boyfriend were having an argument in the early morning hours of August 12th. She bolted out of the vehicle and it is believed that she may have met someone at another bar along the way and obtained a ride from a stranger. Her boyfriend told authorities she never came home that day.

Authorities believed Lisa was strangled to death with a piece of her own clothing and was then thrown into a marsh in the Bay Port Industrial Park (formerly known as Atkinson's Marsh - near Peat's Lake and Duck Creek).

Detectives that worked on the case in 1986 state evidence found on Holstead could not be directly linked to her boyfriend. Over the years, advances in DNA testing were utilized; however, the testing returned no new leads in the case.

As of today, August 16, 2017, the case remains unsolved. Retired Detective Robert Haglund said, "People know something, but someone has to come forward and talk."

At the time of her disappearance and murder, Lisa left behind a 5 year old son.

If you have any leads or tips on this case, please contact the Green Bay Police Department Non-Emergency number at 920-448-3200 or Green Bay Crime Stoppers at 920-432-7867. 

Let's do our part and help bring closure to the family of Lisa Holstead.
