Dylan's on the move?

Bashara case fallout could claim another victim

Posted on May 4, 2012 at 9:34 pm

Dylan's Raw Bar and Grille is looking for a new address. But co-owner Rocco Cinqueranelli promises that if and when any switch comes to pass, the popular Mack Avenue sea food dining spot and jazz music bar will stay in Grosse Pointe Park.

"Yes, we've been looking around," acknowledged Rocco, whose business partner is John Montgomery. "Sometimes things happen that you can't control and you have to adjust. We love this business. People have been marvelous to us. We have a lot of loyal customers.

"We have made a lot of great friends here. We want to stay in the neighborhood."

Dylan's owners have been checking out recently vacated buildings a few blocks to the east, on Kercheval Avenue just north of another popular eatery, Antonio's in the Park.

"What about The Hill or the Village?" I asked. " They're nice," Rocco responded. "but Kercheval in the Park would make more sense for us."

Why move at all? Cincueranelli and Montgomery have owned and operated Dylan's for five years. Grosse Pointers will recall that it once was badged as Tom's Oyster Bar.

Unfortunately, Dylan's may be an innocent spinoff victim of the bizarre Bashara murder case. It happens to be located in a building owned by Robert Bashara, who has been named as a "person of interest" in his wife's murder.

And Dylan's next-door tenant in the same building on Mack (whose signs since have been removed) was the since pad-locked Hard Luck Lounge, which was widely publicized in connection with the Bashara case.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going.

Joseph Gentz competency hearing adjourned a month

May 5, 2012

By Gina Damron
Detroit Free Press Staff Writer

Joseph Gentz, charged in the murder of Grosse Pointe Park mother Jane Bashara, will next appear in court June 11 for a competency hearing.

Gentz, who has undergone a psychiatric evaluation, was scheduled to be in Detroit's 36th District Court on Friday, but the hearing was adjourned to give the forensic center time to complete reports. He did not appear in court Friday.

Gentz, who records show has a history of emotional and psychiatric conditions, is charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy in Bashara's death. In January, Bashara was found strangled in her SUV, which had been dumped in an east-side Detroit alley.

Gentz's attorney, Susan Reed, said her client, who is being held at the William Dickerson Detention Facility in Hamtramck, is doing "as well as could be expected for being incarcerated."

No one else has been charged. After Jane Bashara's husband, Bob Bashara, failed a polygraph examination, Grosse Pointe Park police called him a person of interest.

A formal complaint filed by the prosecutor's office alleges Gentz plotted "with another known individual" but does not name that person.

Gentz, a handyman who did work for Bob Bashara, told investigators that he killed Jane Bashara at the behest of her husband, sources previously told the Free Press.

Bob Bashara has denied involvement in his wife's death.

"I had absolutely nothing to do with what happened to her," he said during an interview with the Free Press in February.

Friend Of Jane Bashara Murder Suspect Joe Gentz Tells Wild Tale



We don't yet know who is responsible for the death of Jane Bashara. Everyone is innocent until proven guilty. But regardless of who is culpable in that tragic crime, it's safe to say everyone involved in the case is really weird. Consider this report from the Macomb Daily:

  • Steve Virgona, [Joe] Gentz’s longtime friend, reportedly called a Detroit radio show Friday morning and said Gentz told him [Bob] Bashara ordered Gentz to kill Jane Bashara at gunpoint. Gentz also revealed Jane Bashara’s last words, Virgona said, a published report said.


  • “Let’s put it this way, he (Gentz) said Bashara pointed a gun at him and said ‘Do it now,’” Virgona said, adding, “Her last words were ‘please don’t do that, please don’t do that.’”


  • Bashara told Gentz, “You’re going to do the job or you’re going to die with her,” according to a published report.

Virgona also claims Gentz, who wandered into a Grosse Pointe police station to confess to the crime in the middle of the night but was initially released without being charged, told him that Bashara had tried to hire other people to kill his wife in a hit-and-run car accident.

Bashara's lawyer, David Griem, called this latest story "bizarre."

If it all went down this way, then this is one of the most absurd and ham-fisted murder conspiracies ever. If Virgona's story is all just woo-woo, then some people seriously need to watch less Law&Order SVU. -- JW

Bashara attorney: Woman's request for protection a 'fabrication'

By Christine Ferretti
The Detroit News

Grosse Pointe Park— The attorney for Robert Bashara on Monday attacked a personal protection order filed by his client's former girlfriend, calling it a "fabrication" to shift attention away from claims she could be a person of interest in the January killing of Bashara's wife.

David Griem says he plans to file a response this week to the Wayne Circuit Court order requested by Rachel Gillett...

-----

In the order, Gillett said Bashara continually contacted her via email and letters, phone calls and unannounced visits to her home in Wayne County.

But Griem on Monday poked holes in Gillett's allegations, which he says were penned by her attorney, Doriad Elder.

Griem has said private investigators examining the case on behalf of Bashara have developed several persons of interest, including Gillett.

"It's obvious that Rachel Gillett's attorney himself drafted the one-and-a-half page attachment to the petition for a PPO," Griem said Monday. "In my humble opinion, it's a self-serving document that is chock-full of rhetoric. Instead of being in a position of a person of interest, let's put (Gillett) in the position of being a victim."

Elder on Monday said Gillett hasn't been questioned by authorities in any capacity other than as a witness. She could be called to testify at trial if Bashara is charged and without her testimony, Bashara would benefit, he said.

"This is no ploy. She fears for her life," Elder said, adding if Griem challenges the order he'll be "more than happy" to question Bashara at a court hearing. "If that's what he wants, that's what his client will get."

-----

Griem admitted Monday that Bashara did leave the crucifix.

"It was a gesture meant to comfort Rachel Gillett during a very difficult time in the lives of both of them," he said. "That's not the stuff a personal protection order should be made of."

Griem added Bashara has not contacted Gillett since the order was put in place.

Bob Bashara files new court documents following ppo from ex-mistress Rachel Gillett

Bashara won't contest ppo

Posted: 5:22 PM
Last Updated: 3 minutes ago

By: Michael Rosenfield

---- VIDEO & TEXT ----


DETROIT (WXYZ) - Almost two weeks after being served with a personal protection order by his one-time mistress Rachel Gillett, Bob Bashara has now responded to the ppo with new court filings Wednesday afternoon.

Bashara’s attorney, David Griem, argues there was no reason for Gillett to file a ppo in the first place, but Bashara is not contesting it nonetheless.

Griem calls Gilett’s ppo a 'self-serving document' and 'replete with rhetoric', and the one allegation of physical conduct by Bashara is when he allegedly showed up at her door and pounded on it. Griem says that's just trying to get someone's attention.

Gillett's attorney, Doraid Elder, tells Action News the response is "five pages of babble".

...

Griem challenges Gillett on several of her claims. For example, when Gillett found a cross made of palm fronds in her mailbox, Griem says Bashara had apparently done it for years and it never crossed his mind that it would come across as stalking.

Griem says Gillett has worked herself into a hysterical state, and there is no factual basis for a ppo.

Still Bashara is not asking for any modification to the ppo, in fact he says it is in the best interest of both parties.

Elder says Bashara is not contesting the ppo because he does not want to be subjected to cross-examination in a hearing.

Bob Bashara, a suspect in his wife's death, denies stalking accusations

Bob Bashara: I didn't stalk ex-girlfriend

7:17 PM, May 9, 2012

By Joe Swickard
Free Press Staff Writer


Bob Bashara denied in a court filing that he is stalking or menacing his former girlfriend, who sought a personal protection order against him two weeks ago.

However, the 5-page document filed by defense attorney David Griem on behalf of Bashara, a suspect in the January slaying of his wife Jane Bashara, does not ask for a hearing or a modification of the PPO obtained by Rachel Gillett, who shared an intimate friendship with him.

Griem wrote the “order is in the best interests of both parties,” but Bashara “feels an obligation to set the record straight” about the allegations in the PPO request. Bashara feared his continued silence “is too easily misconstrued,” the filing says.

“There is no factual basis for this PPO,” Griem wrote, adding that Bashara “chooses to take the high road and say no more.”

The filing comes a little more than 48 hours before Bashara is scheduled to appear on the “Dateline NBC” television program that often features true crime tales.

Gillett’s lawyer Doraid Elder dismissed the filing as “a five-page rant.”

“I’ve never seen anything like it,” Elder said. “It’s a five-page waste of paper.”

...“I’m questioning if Mr. Griem did his client a disservice by not just letting it die,’ Elder said.

Griem, citing a family emergency, declined to comment on or discuss the filing.

Detroit’s Local 4 News Filming of BDSM Club Irresponsible Journalism

By Sunny Megatron



DETROIT - I just learned Detroit’s Local 4 News planted someone at a local BDSM Dungeon party and will broadcast images of the guests captured on a hidden camera on tonight’s 11pm news. The angle of the story is something to the effect of “OMG! Are there really crazy sex parties in our quiet suburban neighborhoods!?” The story will also attempt to tie a local murder suspect’s involvement with S&M to his wife’s killing.

Although faces will be blurred, it is unclear whether other identifying marks like tattoos will be obscured (they were not blurred in the promos). It is also unclear if the name/location of the venue will be revealed.

This promotional segment on “Dungeons of Debautery” has already been airing all day. Note, the clip includes audio and clear below the neck views of some party goers. I am at odds with whether or not to link to this clip. I decided to go ahead because it’s important for us to see how this subject is being portrayed. My outrage didn’t fully kick in until I saw this video with my own two eyes: Detroit’s Dungeons of Debautery. The text below the video reads “Are there dungeons of debauchery in quiet, local communities? Wait until you see what Defender hidden cameras reveal!”

UPDATE: The promo clip that failed to properly obscure the identities of party goers has been removed from Channel 4’s website. The full story has aired and can be seen HERE. The undercover scenes are dramatically different from the promo and the focus of the story was changed, likely due to the public outcry spearheaded by the kinky community. The story was originally called “Dungeons of Debauchery” and is now “Bob Bashara’s Alternative Lifestyle.” The station also blurred out entire bodies instead of partial faces. Unfortunately, the station did name the venue.

Bashara's attorney responds to woman's request for protection

By Christine Ferretti
The Detroit News

Detroit— The attorney for Robert Bashara filed a response Wednesday to a protection order requested by his client's former girlfriend to "set the record straight" on her claims of stalking and harassment.

Bashara's attorney, David Griem, in the Wayne County Circuit Court filing called Rachel Gillett's personal protection order a "self-serving document" meant to re-create history between the pair, adding Bashara is not seeking to have the April 26 order modified or set aside.

"Considering the level of public scrutiny to which Respondent is being subjected, he feels an obligation to set the record straight when allegations of this kind (including police leaks of other alleged scandalous behavior) are leveled against him," Griem wrote in Thursday's reply...

Behold! Blurry Video Of A Dark Room Where Bob Bashara Maybe Attended A Sexy Party



Bob Bashara once possibly attended an adult fetish party at a Lincoln Park VFW hall where (presumably when S&M parties weren’t taking place) senior citizens sometimes play bingo. Won’t someone please think of the seniors!

WDIV hidden cameras go undercover to show you, well, they don’t show you much except blurry hidden camera footage from a dark room. Hank Winchester reports no actual sex takes place at these parties, so if the video was clearer we'd see what? Overfed, middle-aged people in weird costumes getting whipped? Let's be grateful the hidden camera footage sucked.

You know, Bob Bashara may have been involved in his wife Jane’s murder. But what does his gross sex life have to do with his guilt or innocence? Based on WDIV’s report, a lot of people go to S&M parties at VFW halls, but their spouses don’t turn up dead. -- JTW

Bob Bashara: I had a relationship with 1 other woman

Bob Bashara opens up about personal life, relationship with his murdered wife, Jane Bashara, other woman

Published On: May 10 2012 10:59:32 PM EDT

---- VIDEO & TEXT ----

DETROIT -
Nearly four months have gone by.

Bob Bashara faces no charges. He has complied with police on several occasions giving statements, DNA, even hand writing samples. While his future hangs in the balance, it's his personal life taking center stage...

....

When asked about his involvement in the S&M community, Bob Bashara didn't have much to say.

"It was a private part of my life," he said. "It was nothing, had nothing to do with Jane. And people talk about that dark side. They don't even know about what that ... what's involved with that. They think of the terrible notion of different things. But they don't know. They don't know what was going on. And I really don't feel like I can discuss that at this point, knowing that there may be an impending case."

However, Bashara does speak at length about another aspect of his personal life: The other woman.

In an exclusive interview with Dateline, Bashara made an admission about Rachel Gillett. He gave a very different answer than the one he gave the Local 4 Defenders three months earlier....

Bob Bashara's Interview with Dateline:

But Bashara told Dateline's Dennis Murphy about Rachel just weeks ago.

"You know, I do not want to get into a lot of this because of my children," Bashara said. "But I will tell you that I did have, I had a relationship with one other woman."

He said that woman was Rachel Gillett.

"But it has nothing to do with this case," Bashara said. "Anything to do with the death of Jane ... nothing at all."

Bashara said he went to marriage counseling with Jane about a year ago. he never intended to leave his wife and theory of killing Jane to make room for Rachel is absurd, he said.

"That is so untrue," he said. "Because Rachel had those dreams of, of the white picket fence and the other person. She wanted that life. And I wasn't able to give it to her. I didn't leave Jane. I had no interest in leaving Jane. Jane and I were in love."

Bashara described his relationship with his wife. He said they had "an understanding on certain things."

"We had an understanding, correct," he said. "And that's what people are gonna find hard to believe. Her family, her friends, but they don't know what our relationship was about. So yes, we had an understanding. And I would never, ever hurt her or my children."

Bashara said you cannot believe everything you see online, especially in blogs.

"If you read these blogs, these people don't know anything about anything," he said. "They write on it simply because they have a life that's meaningless. And they live their lives through these blogs. As far as Rachel's concerned, she wrote about a lot of things. She was a big writer, fantasy. She wanted the, like I said, the white picket fence. And I couldn't give it to her."

From inside his Grosse Pointe Park home, the location where he believes Jane was killed, Bob Bashara said the focus should not be on his private life or on the media frenzy that has become a mess, but instead on finding justice for Jane. He vows he had nothing to do with his wife's murder.

"I'm not a violent man. I'm a pacifist, actually," he said. "I don't own a gun. I am not violent. I stopped playing football because I didn't like hitting people. I loved my wife dearly ... loved my wife. The mother of my children. I would never harm a hair on her head."

During the days following Bashara's interview with Dateline, his former mistress Rachel Gillett filed a personal protection order against him.

Bob Bashara opens up about Joe Gentz connection

Husband of slain Grosse Pointe Park mother says handyman is lying about what happened

Published On: May 11 2012 10:48:51 AM EDT

Bashara opens up about Joe Gentz

---- VIDEO (4:01) & TEXT ----

DETROIT -
In a new exclusive interview, Bob Bashara shares the connection he has with the man who is charged in his wife’s murder.

Bashara’s wife, Jane, was found dead in the back her SUV in Detroit on Jan. 25. Bashara had reported her missing the night before.

A man known to the family, Joe Gentz, has been charged with her murder.

“I knew he wasn’t playing with a full deck. I knew he had some issues,” Bashara said.

In October 2011, Bashara says he was introduced to Gentz because Gentz was looking for a place to live and Bashara knew about several rental properties.

“I was nice enough to help him get a place to live. I actually put power in my name for him because he had issues with the local utility,” Bashara said. “And, for whatever reason, again, me being a nice guy, I put the power in my name.”

Through odd jobs, Bashara says he eventually paid Gentz to do some handyman work at a rental property and his own home.

Code:
In a previous interview with Local 4, Bashara had said Gentz never met Jane.

Marc Santia: “Did Joe ever meet Jane?”

Bashara: “At that time? No.  … it was during the day, she was at work.”
But in his most recent interview with Dateline, Bashara said the handyman did have a face-to-face encounter with Jane.

“He had did some yard work out back, he had met Jane out in the back,” Bashara said. “She brought us iced tea one day while we were cleaning up some shrubbery and preparing the back yard for winter.”

Sources close to Jane’s murder investigation have told Local 4 that Gentz has told investigators he was contracted by Bashara to do the killing.

“I’m not a nefarious person, but I’m certainly not going to hire an idiot to kill my wife in my garage. Doesn’t make sense and because it’s not true,” Bashara said. “I have nothing to do with that. I am a loving husband, was a loving husband. “

In Bashara’s interview with Dateline’s Dennis Murphy, he says Gentz is lying.

Dennis Murphy: “Did you murder your wife? Did you cause her death?”

Bashara: “Absolutely not.”

Dennis Murphy: “Were you in cahoots with this handyman guy?”

Bashara: “No.”

Bashara says Gentz began demanding more jobs and money. So, Bashara said, he tried to distance himself.

Bashara said he thinks Gentz went to his home on Jan. 24 while Jane was home.


“He must have come over here looking for me, I wasn’t here on the 24th, ran across Jane and said, ‘I’m here to see Bob,’ or ‘I need to talk to Bob.’ She probably told him, ‘He’s not here.’ Maybe he pushed her? Maybe he came in and … I don’t know what happened,” Bashara said. “I got to imagine that Jane told him to ‘go to hell, get out of my house.’ And he snapped.”

Gentz is currently locked up in the Dickerson jail in Hamtramck, awaiting a preliminary hearing that is set for June.

Dateline: Secrets in the Suburbs airs at 10 p.m. Friday on Local 4.

Big Bob Bashara goes national
on Dateline NBC


By: Ben Burns 05.11.2012

Folks have been asking us why we aren’t covering the Jane Bashara murder case like a blanket. GrossePointeToday.com is a community news and information website. We strive in our news items to follow Dragnet’s Jack Webb’s advice: "Just the facts, ma’am, just the facts." We are somewhat more opinionated in our columns.

But the fact is, as of a glorious sunny Friday in May, there is no real news about Bob Bashara, the victim’s husband. Yet Channel 4 is airing a series at 11 p.m. sorting through the details and incidents of his life, including an interview with Big Bob. Dateline NBC sent out a media release touting their roll-through of the case Friday night at 10 p.m.

The fact is, if you want to review what the state and national media are running on the case you can check our home page for our aggregated list of stories elsewhere that refer to Grosse Pointe.

Like the rest of the news media we have questions, but no answers. When we get answers we will put them up on the website.

For example:

  • Why is handyman Joe Gentz charged with conspiracy to commit murder and no conspirator is named?


  • Why did Grosse Pointe police delay for two days a search of the Bashara Middlesex home?


  • Why did 10 days pass before a forensics team examined the garage?


  • Who was responsible for breaking the chain of evidence and the loss of the clothes Jane Bashara was wearing when she was brutally strangled and left in Detroit in the back seat of her SUV?

None of those questions is going to be answered by interviewing Bob Bashara or noting his movements around town or his attendance at the annual Mayors’ Prayer Breakfast.

He has told several different tales of the facts that are known in the case.
Some should be eventually answered by the Wayne County Prosecutor’s office.

The tragedy in all of this is the loss of Jane Bashara, a warm, friendly person and competent marketing executive who helped make the Grosse Pointes a better place to live with her community involvement. We should never lose sight of that.

Dungeon sex antics, the other woman, bad business dealings, rumors and Bob sightings are all distractions from finding the facts of Jane’s slaying and seeing that justice is done.

Bob Bashara says investigators have gone too far

Husband of slain Grosse Pointe Park woman says police 'have been terrible'

Author: Marc Santia, Local 4 Defenders
Published On: May 11 2012 06:01:09 PM EDT

GROSSE POINTE PARK, Mich. -
As a person of interest in his wife's murder, Bob Bashara has met with police, given statements, DNA, and even handwriting samples.

But Bashara, who has not been charged, says investigators have gone too far with his friends, family, and Rachel Gillett -- the woman he had an extra-marital relationship with for three years.

"The police have been terrible," he said. "They've been terrible in leaking, corrupting. They've corrupted (Rachel), turned her against me. They've turned friends of ours against me ... to think that I could harm my lovely wife ... is unthinkable to me. And everyone that knows us is struggling with this because they know Jane and I had a special relationship."

In an interview with Dateline's Dennis Murphy at the Bashara home in Grosse Pointe Park, Bob Bashara said during the months since Jane's death, his private life has been thrust into the spotlight and it has affected his family, especially his daughter Jessie.

"Well, you know what, she's not happy about, about the other situation," he said. "But she firmly knows I had nothing to do with killing her mother, as does her brother. Jane and her were very close. And she's hurt. She's mad. Not happy with me about the, about the Rachel thing. But you know, again, when this is all said and done and I have the chance to explain to her and my son and others that are close to me what the relationship was like between Jane and I, and why I was even involved in the other situation, you'll say, 'Oh OK, well, I guess I understand now. It's a little clearer.' But I need to get past this first."

Bashara said his children are grieving.

"They terribly miss their mother," he said. "My daughter especially. My daughter is an absolute sweetheart. She misses her mother dearly."

As far as being under the microscope in a city where he was born and raised, Bashara says when this is all said and done, he hopes to stay in Grosse Pointe Park.

"I don't want to leave here," he said. "I love this community. I love this community. I may stay in Grosse Pointe. But when I am acquitted of all this and when this all by me, 'cause I will get by this. I will get by this. That's my hope and prayer. I may still stay in Grosse Pointe. To heck with the, what people think."

Bashara Admits To Affair During TV Interview

May 11, 2012 9:34 PM

GROSSE POINTE PARK (WWJ) - Some admissions Friday night in the case of murdered Jane Bashara of Grosse Pointe Park.

Her husband Bob stars in an episode of Dateline NBC, during which he admits he had an affair and says he had an understanding about it with his wife.

As for the allegations of S and M lifestyle, Bashara will only say: ”I did have a relationship with one other woman.”

Bashara admits to having an affair with Rachel Gillette and he says his wife Jane knew about it.

“We had an understanding – correct – and that’s what people are going to find hard to believe; her family, her friends, but they don’t know what our relationship was about,” he said....

They showed some woman on Dateline who was in Bob's dungeon. She didn't even hide her face (maybe wore a wig, not totally sure)

All other dungeon visitors that i saw to-date always hid their appearance.....

She was in the dungeon with Bob and Rachel (Bob's slave), she said.

They had some drinks at the Lounge..

Then went to the Dungeon where the party basically started right away ...

Rachel undressed almost right away .. etc..

She had a good time..... found it exciting ..

But said Bob is kinda arrogant.. .. real Master .. and when you say Master Bob ... - he believes it (that he is Master Bob) ... with every fiber in his body Smile)))))

Also from the show:

When Joe Gentz kills Jane ... they (Gentz and Bob) lift her up to throw in the vehicle .. her breasts were showing from the blouse ... ------ Bob pulls up the blouse, says "I am sorry, baby" .. and then they throw Jane in the car.

Dateline Shows Dark Side of Bashara and Grosse Pointe

By Bill McGraw | May 12th, 2012, 9:24 AM

Bob Bashara opened his home and his heart to NBC's Dateline Friday night, but the result was a tale of a Grosse Pointe Park sex dungeon for a national audience. What did he expect?

...

Bashara has been defensive toward local media outlets, but he welcomed Dateline into his home, showing off the pond, burbling water and ferns in his backyard, and allowing the camera to capture him leafing through a book in the living room, next to a glass that carried the words “You’re the Man, Bob”.

Bob Bashara says wife knew of his affairs

Published: Monday, May 14, 2012

By Mitch Hotts
mitch.hotts@macombdaily.com



In his latest nationally televised interview, murder suspect Bob Bashara says he had an understanding” with his wife similar to an open marriage that allowed him to see other women -- a claim at least one longtime friend of the deceased woman says is unlikely.

Bashara -- declared by police as a person of interest in the death of his wife, Jane -- touched on a number of topics in his interview with by “Dateline NBC” that aired May 11.

...

Longtime family friends such as David and Ruann Marshall of Chesterfield Township do find it hard to believe. They say the scenario “doesn’t fit” with Jane Bashara’s background and her Christian values.

“I can’t say for the record that she did not know (about the affair) but I just find it hard to believe,” said David Marshall, a missionary, whose wife knew Jane Bashara when they grew up in Mount Clemens together and later attended Central Michigan University.

“If Jane did know, I would have to think she endured it only to try to save their marriage and protect their two children. Her marriage and her children were her greatest concern. She was just a bright, caring woman who was a good mother and a good wife,” Marshall said.

...

For Jane Bashara’s family and close friends, the seemingly endless horror story continue to pound away at her memory and their inability to find closure.

David Marshall said he and his wife always consult with Jane’s family before commenting to the media because all of her supporters are sensitive to how she is portrayed in the media where the stories center on such unseemly topics as infidelity, kinky sex, and cheating -- all the antithesis of her values and lifestyle.

“What Bob is saying are things he must say to protect himself. But Jane had a spiritual investment in her family, her children, her career, but not in wealth or material things,” David Marshall said. “All of what he is saying is contrary to the lifestyle she sought and lived.”

Re: Jane Bashara Murder (thread #2)

Post by Darkman on Sun Jul 08, 2012 4:10 pm

Just came across some blogspot and a post about "Bashara Dateline thingy" ... Here is some text from that post:

"... I also enjoy fetish fashion and playing on the dark side but refuse absolutely to do anything that degrades women or generally degrades the human body and soul. For that reason, I do not accept images of BDSM in the groups I administrate on dA.

No one needs to be ashamed of having a dark side. It is inherent in the human condition to carry this duality. We think about dark things, we may fantasize about doing them, but healthy individuals can discern the difference between fantasy and reality. Abnormal behavior occurs when that line disappears, and people get hurt - sometimes badly - sometimes in deadly ways

Still thinking about Decogoddess's journal, I happened to catch Dateline NBC on Friday night. It was about the murder of Jane Bashara who lived in an affluent Grosse Pointe suburb of Detroit. Handyman Joe Gentz has been charged with Jane’s murder, and her husband Bob remains a person of interest. On Dateline, Gentz claims he beat, strangled, and then stepped on the throat of Jane Bashara in her Grosse Pointe Park home. Gentz alleges her husband Bob held a gun to his head and ordered him to kill her.

During the murder investigation, police discovered Bob Bashara's secret BDSM life, literally underground in the basement of a Detroit bar. On the show, a woman described being picked up at the bar and taken into the "dungeon" below by "Master Bob" where she was flogged while bound to a wooden cross with leather restraints. The candlelit dungeon, the instruments of torture, and the description of naked women in bondage reminded me of the BDSM "art" I see categorized as "fetish" on deviantART.

I always wonder why, in a world of so much unavoidable pain, anyone goes out of their way to seek it.

During the show, Bashara defended his secret life by saying, “People talk about the dark side, they don’t even know about what’s involved with that, they think of this terrible notion of … different things, but they don’t know.” Really, master Bob? Do tell us what we don't understand.

Actually, people have a pretty good picture of what Bashara has been doing. My question is why. Trying to show some tolerance and understanding, I can see - as Decogoddess alluded to - the adolescent need for experimentation. The Bashara case points up the affluence of hard core BDSM devotees, though. What do money and power have to do with it?

Jane Bashara's mother files police report against son-in-law

By George Hunter and Christine Ferretti
The Detroit News



Roseville— For the second time in less than a month, a complaint has been filed accusing the husband of slain marketing executive Jane Bashara of harassment.

Bashara's mother, Lorraine Engelbrecht, filed a report with the Roseville Police Department claiming she fears for her safety after receiving a phone call from her son-in-law Robert Bashara, who is a suspect in the Jan. 24 murder.

"We've forwarded the complaint to the Grosse Pointe Park Police," Roseville Police Deputy Chief James Berlin said. "We have no further comment."

Jane Bashara's sister Julie Rowe acknowledged the filing, but declined to elaborate.

"It's done," Rowe said. "We've already talked to who we're going to talk to, and we're not talking to anyone else."

On April 26, Robert Bashara's girlfriend Rachel Gillett filed a personal protection order in Wayne County Circuit Court, claiming Bashara was stalking and harassing her.

Robert Bashara has not been charged in his wife's slaying, but a few days after her body was found inside her sport-utility vehicle in a Detroit alley, Grosse Pointe Park Police Chief David Hiller called him a person of interest in the case. Wayne County prosecutors later referred to Robert Bashara as a suspect in court filings.

Bashara's attorney, David Griem, could not be immediately reached Tuesday for comment.

Last month, Bashara provided a court-ordered handwriting sample requested by prosecutors.

Joseph Gentz, who once worked for Robert Bashara as a handyman, was charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in connection with the killing. Gentz, who has the IQ of a third-grader, according to court records, must be deemed competent to stand trial. A hearing is scheduled for June 11 in Detroit's 36th District Court.

Bashara's attorney, David Griem, said phone records show Engelbrecht contacted Robert Bashara twice Saturday morning and was "livid" after watching a Dateline program related to Jane Bashara's murder.

His client later called Engelbrecht back one time to sympathize, he added.

"It was the day before Mother's Day," Griem said. "He sympathized and shared what a difficult time it is for the entire family and let it go."

Jane Bashara’s Mother ‘Scared’, Files Complaint About Bob Bashara

May 15, 2012 5:49 PM



ROSEVILLE (WWJ) – The family of Jane Bashara of Grosse Pointe Park, who was found murdered late last year, has filed a complaint against her husband, Bob Bashara.

...

WWJ Newsradio 950 spoke with Bashara’s attorney David Griem.

Bob listened to her complaint. She was very upset. She threatened Bob … to do exactly what she did here,” Griem said. “So, there were two phone calls from the mother in law to Bob. Bob, a few minutes later, called her back to try to calm her down but was unsuccessful.

Notice: In Police Report and in the Media it said that Jane's mom called Bob once, and then Bob called her back twice ... But what Griem said (or, at the very least, how his words were reported in by the Media) was vice verse ... that Jane's mom called Bob two times ... and then, few minutes later, Bob called her back...

Bob Bashara's mother-in-law says she's scared of him

In Bashara murder case, victim's mother accuses son-in-law of harassment

5:07 PM, May 15, 2012

By Gina Damron and Joe Swickard
Detroit Free Press Staff Writers

The mother of Jane Bashara, a slain Grosse Pointe Park woman, has filed a police report against her daughter’s husband, accusing him of harassing her by phone.

In the report, filed Sunday, Lorraine Engelbrecht claims she called Bob Bashara after she saw an interview he gave for a "Dateline NBC" program about her daughter's killing.

“She felt that she needed to call him regarding things he said about her daughter,” according to the report, which also says that Engelbrecht called Bashara on Saturday. “She told him to stop dragging her daughter’s name through the mud and to not bring her down to his level.”

Engelbrecht told police Bashara called her back twice, “trying to plead to her about his innocence,” the report says.

In January, Jane Bashara was found strangled in the back of her SUV, which had been dumped in an alley on Detroit's east side. Joseph Gentz, a handyman, has been charged in her killing, which he told investigators he committed at Bob Bashara’s behest.

Bob Bashara, whom Grosse Pointe Park police called a person of interest after he failed a polygraph examination, has not been charged.

His attorney, David Griem, said Bashara's mother-in-law called twice after the "Dateline" broadcast.

“He called back once and tried to sympathize, and said his heart went out to her, especially with Sunday being Mother’s Day,” Griem said.

He said the broadcast “is just the latest example of the theater of the absurd that this case has become.”

Engelbrecht told police that she fears Bashara.

“She felt that even though he did not make any threatening statements to her, he still scared her. ... She thinks that he has changed mentally, and he may be unstable enough to harm her. She is only drawing this conclusion from knowing how he acted before the incident till after the incident.”

The report also says Tim Matouk, an investigator with the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office, advised Engelbrecht to make the report.

The Prosecutor’s Office declined to comment.

Griem said the report was “instigated and created” through the work of Matouk, whom he called “a renegade investigator.” Griem said people have complained about Matouk “because of his tactics, his grilling” in the Bashara investigation.

Jane Bashara’s sister, Julie Engelbrecht Rowe, said she did not want to discuss the situation.

“We don’t want to make a big deal out of this,” she said.

This is the second complaint against Bob Bashara in recent weeks. Last month, his former girlfriend, Rachel Gillett, sought a personal protection order against him, claiming that he contacted her through instant messages and phone calls and has come to her home, despite pleas for him to stop.

Bashara denied stalking Gillett in a court filing earlier this month.

Gillett, 51, wrote in her PPO request that Bashara’s “actions and the fact that he refuses to listen to my pleas for him to leave me alone make me intimidated by him and feel threatened and frightened that he will escalate his behavior if he becomes angry. More importantly, the fact that his wife was found strangled terrifies me because I think that it could happen to me.”
