Jeffrey Spade Bio, Wiki
Jeffrey Spaide was a 47-year-old Pennsylvania engineer who is seen in a viral video shooting his two neighbors James Goy, 50, and Lisa Goy, 48, after a dispute erupted while they were shoveling snow. The two were shot to death during the argument, shortly after they exchanged insults at Spaide, who later died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to Citizens Voice.
Spaide Worked as an ‘Environmental Engineer’. According to online records, Spaide was 47 years old and was from Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania. A look at his Linkedln showed that he was a “professional engineer with experience in water/wastewater projects, landfills, transfer stations, and other waste processing facilities.”
Jeffrey Spade Dumped Snow in his Property
The disastrous argument happened shortly before 9 a.m. on Monday, prosecutors say Feb 1st. James and Lisa Goy 48 were clearing snow out of their parking spots and dumping it on Spaide’s property across the street, according to surveillance footage obtained by investigators.
Police say Spaide confronted the couple about their snow shovelling and they soon started trading obscene gestures and insults. James Goy appeared to raise his fist in a threatening gesture, then Spaide retreated into his home. He came back out with a pistol and shot the married couple in the middle of the street, prosecutors said. Then he went back inside.
The Disturbing Incident was captured on Video
An extremely graphic surveillance video has emerged that shows the shooting. You can watch it below, but be aware that it’s extremely disturbing. It captures the Goys, who were shoveling snow, exchanging insults with Spaide, although it’s not clear in the video what sparked the dispute.
“F*** you,” a man shouts. “You’re a f***ing scumbag,” says Lisa Goy. Other insults captured in the video include, “d***head” and “you’re a p****.”
Then, Lisa Goy says, “Go ahead, go ahead.” Spaide then shoots both of the Goys. Lisa Goy falls in the street, and he walks over and shoots her again at close range.
“Call the cops now, I’m shot,” shouts James Goy as he runs off. “He shot me.” Spaide then runs after James Goy and fires another shot. Other people rush to help the fallen couple.
The Dispute Started When the Goys Threw Snow Onto Spaide’s Property, Authorities Say. The Luzerne County District Attorney told Fox56 that the Goys were “clearing snow from their cars” as Spade was “shoveling his driveway.” According to the television station, Spaide asked the Goys to stop “throwing snow onto Spaide’s property.”
That started the war of words. The station reported that Goy threw a snow removing “implement” and “cocked his fist” at Spaide.
The Goys continued hurling insults at Spaide even after seeing he had come back outside with a gun. The newspaper said that, according to prosecutors, Spaide shot the Goys with a gun and then went into his house to get an AR-15-style rifle to shoot them some more.
A relative posted this photo along with a tribute to the Goys that read, in part, “Happier times, not long ago. 3 of these beautiful people are no longer with us. My aunt…was taken by cancer and now my cousins Jimmy and Lisa have had their lives cut short senselessly….It’s been a rough year for my Goy family. We get so caught up in life and petty arguments. The life we’re given is often too short. Learn to forgive, don’t sweat the small stuff, and spend that time with those you love because you just never know when it will be the last time.” The post also said that Lisa Goy leaves behind a son.
