Dad arrested in connection with fatal caravan murder

INDIANAPOLIS – An Indianapolis man is in jail accused of killing his son in their home on the city’s West Side.

On Friday afternoon at a caravan on Dogie Road, a father and son got into a fight and wrestled, falling to the floor.


A roommate who told police he witnessed the murder said the couple had been arguing over dirty dishes in the kitchen.

The witness claims that 59-year-old Timothy Lisby first tried to attack his son with a spoon handle.

“Tim had a spoon in his hand and he started stabbing Chris with it,” Jeremiah Green said. “Chris said, ‘Jeremiah, take the spoon out of his hand,’ so I did.”

Green stated that the suspect returned to the kitchen for another gun.

“Tim ran into the kitchen, grabbed something sharp and stabbed it into Chris’ chest as hard as he could,” Green said.

Jeremiah quickly called 911 and 31-year-old Christopher Lisby was taken to the hospital, where he died the next day.

“Chris was my friend. I loved him to death,” Green said. “I’ve never seen anyone bleed so much and it really hurt me. When he stabbed Chris in the heart, it was like he stabbed mine.

The statement says Timothy Lisby tried to save his son’s life and pleaded with him to stay alive until the ambulance arrived. Unfortunately, the victim’s heart was wounded.

“He put pressure on Chris and said, ‘Don’t die. Don’t die,” Green said. “Since that day I’ve been crying and I can’t sleep.”

Police arrested Timothy Lisby on a preliminary charge of aggravated battery, but Jeremiah stated that he believed it was murder and would testify against the suspect in court.

“I’ll do anything to put him down,” Green said. “He killed the only friend I have in the world. He will pay for what he did.”

Ultimately, it will be up to the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office to file formal charges in the case.
