Husband Charged With Murder of Wife in Tangipahoa Parish

On March 20, 2024, the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office began investigating the harsh homicide of Ponchatoula resident, 45 year-old Lisa Hernandez. On April 15, 2024, detectives took David Hernandez into custody and booked him the Tangipahoa Parish Jail on one count of Second-Degree Murder and one count of Obstruction of Justice.

Sheriff Daniel Edwards says shortly after 9:00 PM on March 20, 2024, deputies responded to a medical emergency at a Meadow Wood Drive residence in which a female was found lying between her bed and a dresser, covered in blood. First Responders attempted to revive the female, identified as Lisa Hernandez, but were unsuccessful.

After one year of separation, David began stalking Lisa and would randomly show up at her place of employment. Recently, David even sent Lisa a bouquet of flowers containing lilies, also known as the "death flower", to which she was highly allergic to. Additionally, detectives recovered a tracking device from Lisa’s vehicle, which has also been linked to David. On the day Lisa was murdered, detectives determined that David staged a burglary at her residence and later discarded items he used from her home in the homicide into Lake Pontchartrain. With the help of law enforcement agencies, detectives were able to locate and recover the discarded items.

The Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office would like to thank the St Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office, Causeway Police Department, and the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office Land, Air and Sea Emergency Rescue Division for their help in this homicide investigation.
