FALL CREEK — A relative of a former Glenwood City woman was named earlier this week as a victim in an Eau Claire County double homicide.

David R. Dishneau, age 59 of Chippewa Falls, is the nephew of Gladys Lewis, who resides in New Richmond but formerly lived in Glenwood City. He is one of two individuals found buried on property owned by Wayne W. Price of Fall Creek.

According to Lewis, the second victim, Elizabeth “Lisa” Price, age 43 of Fall Creek, was both Wayne Price’s sister, and Dishneau’s girlfriend.

According to the criminal complaint, the bodies of Dishneau and Lisa Price were found buried in a shallow grave on Price’s property after allegedly being shot inside a vehicle. The criminal complaint filed by the Eau Claire County District Attorney indicates both bodies were discovered September 29.

The document also indicates a silver Cadillac was located off the trail of a nearby wooded area. Blood was on both front seats, and blood spatter was on the driver’s side windshield.

The complaint indicates Price was taken into custody September 29 after confessing to a friend he had done something “really stupid” after being involved in a drug deal. The complaint also says he told his friend he shot two people sometime around September 23.

According to the complaint, autopsy results showed Lisa Price was shot once in the head, and had an injury on the top of her head consistent with blunt force trauma. Dishneau was reportedly shot twice in the head and once in the neck.

Wayne Price is charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide, two counts of hiding a corpse, and one count of second-degree recklessly endangering safety. Online court records indicate a $1,000,000 cash bond was set October 9. 

Price was also ordered not to use or possess weapons of any kind, not to leave Eau Claire County, and not to travel out of state. A preliminary hearing in the case is scheduled in front of Judge Shaugnessy Murphy at 2 p.m. October 17.

First-degree intentional homicide is a class A felony in Wisconsin, and is penalized by life imprisonment. Hiding a corpse is a class F felony, punishable by a fine of no more than $25,000, up to 12 years and six months in prison, or both.

Second-degree recklessly endangering safety is a class G felony, and punishable by a prison term of up to 10 years, a fine up to $25,000, or both.
