Lisa Yates-Green River Victim Hi Deb. I see that you left a memorial for my friend Lisa asking what drives a woman or girl to make a choice to lead the life she did and you wished she were here to tell you.
Lisa and I went to school together. She did not have a great home life. Her mom was a single mom, never home, and when she was, she was always bringing different guys home, wanting Lisa to party with them, etc. Lisa's mom is to blame as far as I am concerned. So incredibly sad. I saw Lisa making terrible choices and pretty much getting all the positive attention she wanted or needed from guys and in the wrong way. She fell into partying and I don't think knew how to find her way back. So, so sad. I wish I could find a better picture of Lisa to be posted. She actually was a very pretty girl.
I was angry at her and her lifestyle for a long time and I was totally shocked when I found out that she had become a prostitute and a victim of the no good piece of $%&* loser Gary Ridgeway.
I think I am still in shock after all these years. Lisa grew up in a small, nice town about 50 miles north of the Seatac/Green River area.
