Decatur County Woman Arrested For Murder


Greensburg, IN -  In the morning hours of today's date, Detectives from the Indiana State Police Post at Versailles arrested Lisa L. Griesehop, 29 of Greensburg for the Murder of Steven W. Hobbs, 48 of Greensburg. On March 13th at approximately 8:00 P. M., the Decatur Co. Sheriff's Dept. responded to 1616 W. S.R. 46 in Decatur Co. to a man with a gun shot wound. Officers from the Decatur Co. Sheriff's Dept. and the Greensburg City P.D. arrived at the same time and found Steven Hobbs deceased. Lisa Griesehop, the deceased's girlfriend was also at the residence, (both Griesehop and Hobbs resided at this residence). Griesehop told officers that she and Hobbs had been arguing earlier and Hobbs got upset and shot himself. The Decatur Co. Sheriff's Dept. requested assistance from the Indiana State Police at the scene. The scene was processed for evidence and Indiana State Police Detectives took over the case at the request of the Decatur Co. Sheriff's Dept.

On March 14th an autopsy was performed on the deceased at the Marion County Coroner's Office in Indianapolis. During the autopsy the Medical Examiner gave a preliminary finding that the gunshot wound sustained by Steven Hobbs was possibly not self-inflicted due to the wound not being consistent with a Self-Inflicted Contact Wound. On March 15th as detectives from the Indiana State Police were interviewing Lisa Griesehop for the second time they developed enough information to place her under arrest. She was charged with Murder and incarcerated in the Decatur Co. Jail awaiting court proceedings.

Indiana State Police Detectives Peter Tressler and Tracy Rohlfing are the lead officers in this case with assistance from Indiana State Police Crime Scene Technician Rob Ewing.
