Lisa Lawson

Lisa Lawson, a 40-year old lesbian who was reporting missing in mid-November and was found deceased Dec. 4, died of an apparent suicide from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to a McDonough police report obtained by GA Voice.

Lawson was first reported missing Nov. 19. Her disappearance prompted her girlfriend, Michelle Alexander, to create a media campaign to help find her. The website, www.findlisalawson.com, and an accompanying video on YouTube helped spread the story of Lawson's disappearance.

An expanded search of Lawson's last known whereabouts was conducted on Dec. 4 and her vehicle, a green Chevrolet Suburban, was found in a Wal-Mart parking lot in McDonough, Ga., after investigators determined her last known location using cell tower records.
