Lisa Jean Kelly


Lisa Kelly, 27, was a quiet neighbor on a quiet street.

Neighbors on Coolidge Street, in Swansea, Mass., yesterday described her as someone who kept to herself but was friendly. Some said they got to know her through her young daughter, Zoe, who played with their children.
Bill Duquette and his wife, Chris, said they believed Kelly was a vegetarian, because her daughter was. And they remembered Kelly as someone who would speak up -- when the circumstances called for it.

"She was like a watchdog," said Chris Duquette. "We had issues with people speeding up the street. She'd go up to them and say, 'There are kids in this neighborhood.' "

"She was a sweet girl."

Tim and Joyce Levesque said they learned what happened to their neighbor only yesterday.

"You think, 'Not in a small town,' " said Joyce Levesque.
