James Goy Wiki – James Goy Biography

James Goy and his wife Lisa Goy, 48, were killed by their neighbor outside Scranton on Monday in a terrifying altercation that was caught on camera. James and Lisa appear in the last row of a Facebook photo, flanking their surviving 15-year-old son, who has autism.

A very disturbing clip of the incident shows Jeffrey Allen Spaide, 47, breaking into his home to get a gun to kill James and Lisa, following an argument about shoveling snow on each other’s Plains Township property.

“If you get out of here, I’ll knock you out,” James can be heard saying to Spaide.

James Goy was 50 years old.

Cause of Death

The fatal firearm violence occurred in Plains Township, about 15 miles southwest of Scranton after 2 feet of snow covered the area, authorities said.

Just before 9 a.m. Monday, Plains Township police officers responded to a report of shooting in a residential neighborhood and discovered James Goy, 50, and his wife, Lisa Goy, 48, lying dead in the street in front of his home, according to a joint statement by Luzerne County District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis and Plains Township Police Chief Dale Binker.

Area residents directed police officers to a house across the street from the Goys’ home, but as they approached the front door, a shot rang out, officers said. Inside the home, police found James Spaide, 47, who died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, authorities said.

Neighbors told investigators that Spaide and the Goys had been involved in a long-running dispute that reached a boiling point on the snowiest day of the year.

“The Goys were shoveling snow from their parking spots, shoveling across the road and dumping snow on Spaide’s property,” Salavantis and Binker said in their statement.

Investigation Report

Witnesses told investigators that Spaide asked the couple to stop, sparking a heated exchange of words. James Goy apparently threw a tool at Spaide that he had been using to clear snow from his car, according to the statement. When James Goy approached Spaide with a raised fist, Spaide reportedly retreated into his house and fetched a gun, the officials said.

“The Goys proceed to yell at him, and, using expletives, the parties called each other names,” Salavantis and Binker said in their statement, adding that the episode was captured on surveillance video. “Mr. Goy then threatened Spaide and is seen making obscene gestures at him. Seconds later, Spaide returns holding a handgun.”

The officials said despite seeing Spaide with a gun, James and Lisa Goy continued shouting names at him from the middle of the street.

Spaide allegedly opened fire on the couple, shooting both of them multiple times. Officials said Spaide then went back into his house and retrieved another firearm, which he reportedly used to shoot them again.
