Everyone, we recently lost an amazing ally and a friend and we need your help to bring her murderer to justice.  Lisa (Foxy Goat to her friends) was murdered in her home last weekend.  Foxy was a truly special person and this is a devastating loss to not only our community, but many others as well.  Her vivacious personality was so amazing that she positively impacted everyone, even those who may have only seen her from afar.  She lived her life in a way that gave others permission to be themselves and every aspect of her life reflected this love and acceptance.

I loved her dearly.  She was one of the most self-expressed, loving, accepting, and hilarious people I have ever known (and THAT is saying something).  She had a standing invitation to ride on the back of my motorcycle in the pride parade every year and we always made the news.  She would spin a parasol and ham it up with me for over a million people.  We were like two gothic princess cupcakes on a bike- a crowd favorite.  She was a regular at events like the Ties and Tassles burlesque shows, and events at the 1901 Gallery.  A talented artist, Foxy created truly unique work and had an incredible sense of humor that carried though to everything she created.

She had a way of cheerfully bolstering everyone around her, living her life like a stranger was a friend she hadn’t met yet.  She was a dear person and a close friend.  Please, join us in bringing her murderer to justice by:

  1. Supporting the reward fund at If her site does not show up immediately, search for Lisa Koziol-Ellis.
  2. Sharing this with your friends. Someone knows something.  Your share may be the connection that has someone come forward.

Thank you for joining us in honoring her life and bringing her murderer to justice.
