Drivers spot naked man running through Grosse Pointe Woods; police say man was high on meth

Man bares all in run near Mack Avenue, Lochmoor Boulevard in Grosse Pointe Woods with police in pursuit

Author: Mara MacDonald, Local 4 Reporter

---- TEXT & VIDEO ----

GROSSE POINTE WOODS, Mich. -
Drivers in Grosse Pointe Woods were not expecting rush hour traffic to include a naked man running down Mack Avenue.

Of course, who would?

Yet, that's exactly what Sal Rizzo and his friend, Ethan Rutkofske, captured on camera when they were driving on Mack Avenue near Lochmoor Boulevard.

“We were driving down Mack and ... we see this naked guy running right in front of us and I was like, 'No way,'" said Rizzo.

To be fair, the man wasn't completely naked.

"He had socks on, I think," said Rizzo.

Rutkofske whipped out his phone and captured the video of the naked man with Grosse Pointe Woods police in hot pursuit.

"He was running right next to us and then in front of us," said Rutkofske. "I had to stop right in front of the cops so they could get him."

According to police, the 29-year-old Livonia man was high on meth. Officers eventually had to use a Taser on him to get him to stop. They covered him up while he sat on the curb.

If ever there was a strong deterrent for kids to stay off drugs, this is it.

"I just hope I stay clean," said Rutkofske.

Officers called for an ambulance which took the man to a nearby hospital. Police said they don't expect any charges to be filed.

Bob Bashara served personal protection order from alleged mistress

Rachel Gillett files personal protection order against former reputed lover Bob Bashara

---- VIDEO & TEXT ----

DETROIT - Bob Bashara has been served a personal protection order from his alleged mistress.

Rachel Gillett's attorney said she is scared for her life.

Gillett wants Bob Bashara to stay away: No talking, no texting, no visiting or emailing.

"It's pretty much Rachel's way of telling the court, look, I'm afraid of this guy," said her attorney, Doraid Elder. Elder filed the petition for a personal protection order on Thursday.

"She's petrified. She just wants him to leave her alone and hasn't done that," Elder said.

The attorney says Gillett had a relationship with Bob Bashara for three years and never knew the Grosse Pointe Park man was married.

"Rachel though that for the longest time Bob was divorced", Elder said.

Elder said reality hit Gillett after Bob's wife, Jane Bashara, was killed and Bob spoke out to the media saying he lost his best friend and soul mate.

"She realized that he was someone that she did not know who he is," Elder said. "She realized this guy lied to her, manipulated her. He was living two lives and she's petrified."

Breaking off the relationship after the murder, Gillett said she tried to distance herself from Bob but he refused to take no for an answer. She says he has made several attempts to contact her even though he was told to stay away.

"He told her, 'Look, I know I shouldn't be doing this. I'm gonna get in trouble for it,'" Elder said.
Bob Bashara has been called a person of interest in his wife's murder investigation. A case is building against him. Elder said Gillett could be a key witness and she is scared for her life.

"If Rachel isn't around that can be to Bob's benefit and she is petrified of this," Elder said.

Local 4 legal expert Todd Flood said the PPO is bad for Bob.

Bob Bashara's mistress writes letter to judge[/SIZE]

Rachel Gillett files personal protection order, tells judge she fears for her own safety

Author: Marc Santia, Local 4 Defenders
Published On: Apr 26 2012 06:03:38 PM EDT


---- VIDEO & TEXT ----

Rachel Gillett wrote a letter to her local judge asking for a personal protection order against her reputed lover Bob Bashara.

READ: Rachel Gillett files personal protection order against Bob Bashara

"I'm very concerned about my safety," Gillett writes.

"I feel very bad for Rachel," said her attorney Doraid Elder. "She's really a victim of manipulation and lies."

After Bob Bashara's wife, Jane Bashara, was killed, Gillett says she realized "(Bob) is much more of a danger to me than I ever imagined before and I am terrified he will hurt me."

Elder said Gillett has been cooperating with law enforcement and could be a key witness against Bob Bashara who has been called a person of interest in his wife's murder investigation.

"If Rachel isn't around then that can be to Bob's benefit and she's petrified of this," Elder said.

After telling Bob through his attorney, David Griem, to leave her alone, Gillett says Bob has not stopped for one instance banging on her front door.

"A neighbor that lives near Rachel heard some pounding on a door and looked out there and saw Bob trying to gain entry into Rachel's house," Elder said.

According to documents, Gillett became frightened after Bob left her a crucifix made of palm leaf inside her mailbox. It was something he had given her the last three years of their relationship.

Gillett discovered the cross as she talked with an investigator.

"She grabbed the mail while she was talking to him and she found it and she gasped," Elder said.

Gillett ends her plea to the judge as succinct as she began, writing, " ... because he won't leave me alone now I am terrified of what he will do."

Bob Bashara's former alleged mistress files protection order, lawyer says

6:00 PM, April 26, 2012

... David Griem, Bob Bashara’s attorney, said this afternoon that he hasn’t seen the filing, but was made aware of it when a member of the local media called.

During an interview with the Free Press in February, Bob Bashara, who was named a person of interest in his wife’s death after failing a polygraph examination, denied cheating on his wife.

In a later interview on “Good Morning America,” Bob Bashara said that he and his wife had a “very good, open relationship.”

Griem said, to his knowledge, Bob Bashara has not been in contact with his alleged former mistress, Rachel Gillett.

“I would be very disappointed if he has been in contact with Rachel Gillett,” Griem said, adding he has advised his client not to contact anyone. “So if he has been in contact with her, it’s directly in opposite to my directions to him.”

Asked whether he was surprised by the PPO, Griem said “shocked is a better word.”

Griem said he told Bob Bashara to accept service if someone attempts to serve him with the PPO.

“I can tell you that he will not be ducking service,” Griem said.

Jane Bashara’s family denounced the claim that she and her husband had an open relationship....

Report: Alleged Bashara Mistress Wants Protection

April 26, 2012 5:54 PM



... Attorney David Grim said his client has not kept in touched with his former girlfriend.

“My client has not been in contact with her. We have not seen the proposed personal protection order,” Grim told WWJ Newsradio 950.

Grim said the woman, Rachel Gillette, may be reacting to information his office has developed.


“Our investigators have developed several persons of interest in our search for the truth,” said Grim. “I would indicate to you that Rachel Gillette is one of those persons of interest that we have developed.”

Grim added that he has seen no evidence that Gillette has grounds for a PPO.

“Anybody can walk in, make allegations and attempt to get a personal protection order,” he said....

Woman romantically linked to Bashara files protection order against him

By Christine Ferretti
The Detroit News

... "Knowing Bob is a No. 1 suspect in his wife's murder, (Gillett) is petrified. He's not the same individual she thought she knew," Elder said. "She is a potential witness if she's called at a trial. If he is leading a double life they can't prove it without her testimony. If she's gone, Bob benefits from it."

Elder said Gillett and Bashara dated for several years, but the whole time, he claims, Bashara told Gillett that he and Jane had been separated and were divorcing. Within the last six months, Elder added, Bashara allegedly told Gillett that the divorce was final and at one point, they were shopping for homes together.

But Gillett attempted to end her contact with Bashara, after his wife's body was found Jan. 25 inside her SUV in an alley near Seven Mile in Detroit, Elder said.

Even so, Bashara allegedly continued to reach out to Gillett with anonymous phone calls and even placed a crucifix of palm leaves in her mailbox on Easter weekend and, on another occasion, left an envelope with his handwriting containing unspecified documents.

Elder said a circuit judge approved the protection request. If he chooses, Bashara can file a motion contesting it.

Handyman Joseph Gentz was arraigned in March on charges of first-degree murder and conspiracy in her killing. The St. Clair Shores man allegedly told investigators on multiple occasions that Robert Bashara paid him to kill her. The conspiracy charge means prosecutors believe Gentz did not act alone, but no one else has yet been charged in the case.

A hearing on Gentz' competency is scheduled for May 4.

Griem has commissioned private investigators to examine the case on behalf of Bashara, and they have developed several persons of interest "in our search for the truth."

"I would indicate to you that Rachel Gillett is one of those persons of interest we have developed," he said. "There's a theory both in the sport of football and life in general that sometimes the best defense is a good offense. We all know Joseph Gentz is a proponent of that theory…it appears Rachel Gillett, like Joseph Gentz, is also a proponent that the best defense is a good offense."

... Griem said he questions the timing of the order and Gillett’s motive, adding that he’s examining her role in the case. He said his understanding was that the communications were going in the other direction: Gillett contacting Bob Bashara.

Attorney Doraid Elder, who is representing Gillett, said he contacted Griem about Bashara’s attempts to reach his client. He said Griem “called back saying he was very grateful,” and that the efforts would stop.

Griem, though, said: “The conversations were to the effect that our two clients should not be having contact with each other with this ongoing criminal investigation and that both of us should warn our clients that they should not be talking to each other, texting each other, sending carrier pigeons back and forth.”...

However, Elder said the efforts by Bob Bashara continued after he spoke to Griem...

DETROIT - Bob Bashara's attorney, David Griem, hasn’t seen the personal protection order yet, but says he questions Rachel Gillett’s credibility.

Griem said it appears she is following the old maxim: The best defense is a good offense.

"We've had investigators in our own search for the truth in this matter and I would indicate to you, in light of what she allegedly did today, that she has been one of our persons of interest in this investigation into the death of Jane Bashara," Griem said....

Bashara girlfriend wants court order to keep him away

By Mitch Hotts
mitch.hotts@macombdaily.com



... "If Rachel isn’t around, then that can be to Bob’s benefit and she’s petrified of this,” Elder told the TV station. Griem said both lawyers told their respective clients to avoid contact with each other. “If they have been in touch, it is contrary to what they were told,” he said. Griem said he hasn’t yet viewed the PPO, but added Gillett may be instituting a “best defense is a good offense” approach to possibly facing criminal charges. He said a team of private investigators he is working with including a retired FBI agent have been whittling down potential “people of interest” who could be suspects in Jane Bashara’s slaying. “In our search for the truth of what happened to Jane Bashara, Rachel Gillett is one of the persons of interest,” said Griem, adding he did not believe Bashara would ever harm Gillett. “She has a motive for what she did and that motive has nothing to do with a PPO or her perception of potential harm coming her way,” Griem added. Gillett did not respond to a request for comment left on her cellphone. The Macomb Daily reported in February that Gillett was fired from her job at Wayne State University after she left work on Jan. 25 — the day Jane Bashara’s body was discovered in a Detroit alley — and never returned. A number of reports have suggested Gillett and Bashara led a secret sex life in Detroit’s S&M underground scene and also traveled out of state together. Bashara has referred to her as a friend...

Bashara's Former Mistress Files Restraining Order Against Him

Says She Fears He'll Hurt Her

Updated: Thursday, 26 Apr 2012, 11:36 PM EDT
Published : Thursday, 26 Apr 2012, 11:36 PM EDT

Rachel Gillett, widely known as Bob Bashara's mistress, has filed a personal protection order against him, claiming she fears for her life. Bashara was seeing her during his marriage to Jane Bashara up until Jane's murder earlier this year. That's when Rachel says she broke it off. But it seems Bob can't take a hint. So what does this mean for the yet unsolved murder case? Fox 2's Ron Savage has the story.

Read some comments about him there, for example:

My brother was charged with Murder. Elder fought for him in trial. My brother is now a free man strictly because of Doraid Elder's aggressive representation. We thank the Lord we had Elder as our lawyer. If your in trouble or have some you care about. Then Elder is the only lawyer that has proven results. He's amazing at what he does.

Someone wrote quite unique comment about RG and BB ... HERE:

Just someone's take on it ... but still ... this is what poster said:

-----

tenaciousTJ 16 hours ago:

"and I am terrified that he will hurt me,” she said in a narrative included in the PPO request.

It seemed like that's the way they like it...with a little or a lot of "hurt" involved.

She was with him for 3 years behind Jane's back. She knew what Master Bob was into sexually...evil stuff...and they wanted to bring another woman into their nasty world.

Now she's scared of him? Why? What makes this woman that was in love with this man...affair or not...terrified?

If she has the goods on Master Bob, then wouldn't you think the police would do a better job at protecting this witness?

Or perhaps this is a sure fire way to get him locked up for a minute once he violates the PPO???

She's bait.

One hundred turkeys were purchased and hand delivered to Gleaners, all in all about 1,000 pounds of turkey. This year, in addition to bragging rights, the winner was to receive the gift of the loser sporting a turkey suit. In all fairness, Bob Bashara was not a party to the bet...

Alleged Bashara mistress obtains protection order against him

By K. Michelle Moran
C & G Staff Writer

Robert Bashara’s alleged mistress, Rachel Gillett, now says she’s afraid for her life of the man she once loved.

On April 26, Gillett was granted a personal protection order ex parte in Wayne County’s Third Circuit Court against Bashara. The order forbids Bashara from contacting, following or visiting Gillett, and prevents him from legally purchasing or owning a gun.

In documents filed by her attorney, Doraid Elder, Gillett says that she had a three-year relationship with Bashara, during which time she “tried several times to break up with him.” Bashara has stalked her “at home and at work,” she charges in the PPO. Elder said Gillett met Bashara online.

When she learned that Bashara’s wife, Jane Bashara, had been discovered strangled in her vehicle Jan. 25, Gillett’s concerns about her former lover skyrocketed...

-------------

...“Rachel is a victim of Bob Bashara’s lies and deceit. … She is a very sincere person and would never have been involved with him if she knew he was in a solid marriage,” Elder said.

The attorney said Bashara told Gillett his relationship with his wife was “on the rocks” and he was getting a divorce. At one point, Elder said Bashara even told Gillett the divorce had been finalized. But things changed when Gillett asked to see the divorce papers. Not wanting to interfere with the ongoing investigation, Elder declined to say when his client first asked Bashara about seeing proof of his alleged divorce...

--------------

...Now living in an undisclosed location, Elder said Gillett is taking extra precautions for her safety.

“There’s anxiety every time she hears a knock at the door, every time she goes out, every time she leaves the house,” he said.

Bashara’s attorney, David Griem, could not be reached before press time for comment.

GrossePointeToday.com / News / Public Safety

05.01.2012

Welcome back to the GrossePointeToday.com public-safety roundup. We've been gone a while, and we hope we can lure at least some of our loyal readers back. As some of you know, your public-safety correspondent -- that would be me -- got a new job in January, which combined with the other jobs I was doing, meant something had to give. This was one of them. Things are easier now, and I hope to have more time to devote to making the cop-shop rounds and seeing what's up.

But first, a few words about what I missed. About a month into the hiatus, I got an email from a reader saying, "Wouldn't you know it? You take time off and something actually happens." She was referring to the Jane Bashara homicide, of course, which landed like a bomb just in time for February sweeps.

The whole place went a little crazy, didn't it?
The leaking police departments, the inane TV-dolt standups outside the Park municipal building, the constant gossip -- it didn't let up for a month. But what really bugged me is how quickly the whole story became a joke.

You couldn't help but laugh
at the macabre sideshow of Nancy Grace, Master Bob, the Hinky Meter, the whole nine. I was watching attorney David Griem's press conference on a web stream. He stepped to the microphone and made a joke about there being no truth to the rumor that his nickname among "the S&M ladies" was "Shorty." (I half expected to be reminded to tip my waitress.)

In the midst of it all, it was easy to forget that at the center of the story was a hole, a hole shaped like Jane Bashara. "She was the class of that outfit," someone told me, and I believe it. Once she was gone, it was all a joke. It's not a joke. Let's hope this case gets wrapped soon.

That was at the beginning of our break. At the end? A naked guy running down Mack Avenue in the Woods, freaking on meth.

Now that's a joke.

As for this week? Not so much. The usual drunks, the usual thieves, the usual life of crime here in Grosse Pointe. But starting this week, we're back covering it again.

GROSSE POINTE, Mich. (WXYZ) - Rachel Gillett wasn’t talking when 7 Action News caught up with her Wednesday night...

-----------

For the first time Rachel’s neighbors are speaking out about the PPO and the case. One neighbor, who did not want to be identified, said she saw what looked like Bashara trying to break into Rachel’s flat back in March after Jane Bashara’s murder.

The neighbor tells Action News that she heard him trying to unlock the door and watched as he pushed hard to open it.

Gillett is not accused of any wrongdoing in the Bashara murder. Bob Bashara remains a person of interest in his wife’s murder. Jane Bashara was found dead in her SUV back in March in Detroit.

Bashara murder defendant's competency hearing delayed

By Christine Ferretti
The Detroit News

Detroit — A mental evaluation hearing will be delayed for a St. Clair Shores handyman accused in the death of Jane Bashara, prosecutors said Thursday.

Joseph Gentz was due in 36th District Court on Friday for a competency hearing to determine if he's mentally fit to stand trial on first-degree murder and conspiracy charges in Bashara's Jan. 24 strangulation death.

But Wayne County prosecutors said the hearing will be postponed as a forensic center works to complete reports required for the proceeding. A new date has not yet been set...

----

Gentz's attorney Susan Reed requested the competency evaluation at his March arraignment. Court records say the St. Clair Shores man has the IQ of a third-grader and was previously diagnosed with bipolar and organic mood disorder.

Although Gentz has undergone competency testing, Reed said this week that results weren't in.

"We haven't gotten the results back yet, and I have no idea when they'll come back," she said.

Court Hearing for Gentz in Bashara Homicide Rescheduled

The handyman charged in the strangulation death of Jane E. Bashara was to appear in 36th District Court Friday but the hearing has been adjourned and a new date is to be determined as his competency evaluation continues.

By Sara Eaton Martin, 11:39 am

...

This is the second time the preliminary exam for Joe Gentz has been continued. He was arraigned on charges in early March. Normally a preliminary exam—the hearing during which a judge rules whether the prosecution has sufficient evidence to continue pursuing the case in court—happens within 14 days of the arraignment.

Defendants can waive their right to the 14-day time frame, which is the case with Gentz. His attorney, Susan Reed, requested the competency evaluation during his arraignment, during which he waived the 14 days.

He had been scheduled to appear Friday afternoon in 36th District Court but a new date is to be determined, Wayne County Prosecutor's Office spokeswoman Maria Miller announced Thursday.

A new date has not yet been set but will be announced when one is determined, Miller said.

Officials from the Forensic Center are still working to complete reports related to the competency evaluation, Miller said. The results of the evaluation are necessary to begin the preliminary exam, which will not happen if he is determined as incompetent to stand trial.

According to the Michigan law outlining the procedure for competency evaluations, the center performing the evaluation must include the following:

  • Clinical findings

  • The facts upon which the clinical findings are based upon

  • The opinion about whether the defendant is competent to stand trial or about the likelihood of the defendant becoming competent through a treatment regimen within a certain timeframe

  • The competency evaluation and any of the information gathered for it are not pieces of information that can be used in the criminal proceedings, other than for determining competency to stand trial

Competency Hearing for Bashara Murder Suspect Delayed

Updated: Thursday, 03 May 2012, 1:39 PM EDT
Published : Thursday, 03 May 2012, 1:39 PM EDT



By Scott Brewer

DETROIT, Mich. (WJBK) - A hearing to determine the mental status of the man charged in the murder of Grosse Pointe Park businesswoman Jane Bashara has been delayed...

...

Speaking to FOX 2's Amy Lange on Thursday, Bashara attorney David Griem speculates the delay in the competency hearing was because prosecutors are still trying to work out a plea deal with Joe Gentz.

During the interview Griem also addressed the Personal Protection Order requested by Bob Bashara's former girlfriend that was filed on April 26. In a letter to the court, Rachel Gillette said Bashara stalked her during the three years they dated when she tried to break things off with him.

After Jane's death realizing he is "much more of a danger to me than I ever imagined before. And I am terrified that he will hurt me" she said. Gillette says she always thought he was a divorced man and did not know the truth until after his wife was murdered.

Griem said he plans to respond to the PPO in writing to clarify the facts in the case. Griem said Bashara is not stalking his former lover and recently left a Palm Sunday Cross in her mailbox as a sign of friendship.

He admits Bashara probably should not have phoned her after Gillette's attorney had written asking that Bob not contact her anymore, but said the pair spoke for at least twenty minutes which indicated the conversation was mutual.


Stay with FOX 2 news and myFOXDetroit.com for updates on this developing story.

May 03, 2012
A City of Grosse Pointe woman romantically linked with Bob Bashara has obtained a personal protection order against him after stating he continues to contact her after she has asked him to stop.

According to the written request for the personal protection order, Rachel Gillett, 51, maintains she is fearful for her life and wants Bashara to be prohibited from contacting her by any form, including by telephone, e-mail or in person. She outlined several instances where Bashara has attempted to contact her, including allegedly coming to her residence, after she has told him she wants no contact with him.

Compentency hearing in Bashara murder case expected to be postponed

By Gina Damron

The competency hearing scheduled to be held Friday for a man charged in the murder of Grosse Pointe Park mother Jane Bashara is expected to be adjourned, according to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office.

Joseph Gentz, who was undergoing a psychiatric evaluation, was scheduled to be in Detroit’s 36th District Court Friday. The prosecutor’s office said today that the parties in the case will appear in court Friday to address the adjournment to allow the Forensic Center to complete reports.

It’s unlikely Gentz will appear in court, the prosecutor’s office said....

Attorney for Bob Bashara's former mistress says client was deceived into thinking Bashara was single

Posted: 7:13 PM
Last Updated: 23 minutes ago

By: Kimberly Craig


---- VIDEO & TEXT ----

DETROIT (WXYZ) - As Bob Bashara's attorney prepares to file a response to the personal protection order against his client, the woman who sought that PPO is avoiding reporters for fear that talking publicly will hurt the investigation into the murder of Jane Bashara.

7 Action News spoke to attorney Doraid Elder who represents Rachel Gillett.

"The picture that's been painted of Rachel is that she is a willing mistress. She's not. She is someone that was duped, lied to, fell in love and this has been devastating for her," said Elder.

Elder says Gillett went house hunting with Bob Bashara because she believed that Bob and Jane Bashara were already divorced. And it was only several days after Jane Bashara was found dead that Gillett learned that the two were still married...

...

Bashara's attorney David Griem says he will file a response to the PPO against his client by next Thursday but he has no plans to fight it because he thinks it's best that the two have no contact.

Prior to the PPO, Griem acknowledges that his client placed a palm frond cross in Rachel Gillett's mailbox on Palm Sunday.

"He wove it himself and did place it in her mailbox. His thought being that this is a very difficult time for both of them and maybe that would give her some spiritual help," said Griem.

Bob Bashara's attorney has own theory

...

"I believe there are negotiations going on right now between the prosecutor's office and Joe Gentz's to try to reach plea resolution ... and probably sentence resolution for Mr. Gentz. And Mr. Gentz then would be used against Robert Bashara."

Bob Bashara's reputed mistress, Rachel Gillett, retained a personal protection order against Bob. Griem doesn't think that's not such a bad thing.

"Rachel and Mr. Bashara should be prohibited from having contact with each other," Griem said...

So what did we learn from WXYZ’s latest report? For one thing, Gillett's neighbors are pretty much annoyed with the controversy. One neighbor might have one time heard Bashara trying to break into Gillett's home...with a key!

We also learned that Gillett has an attached garage with an electric door. She wouldn’t talk to the camera crew, but they filmed her exiting her vehicle and closing the garage door.

He was scheduled to face a preliminary examination Friday in 36th District Court in Detroit but the state Center for Forensic Psychiatry has not yet submitted a report on whether Gentz was criminally responsible and can help in his defense, according to Maria Miller, spokeswoman for Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy.

A new date has not yet been set, Miller said Thursday morning...

Competency hearing delayed for handyman in Bashara killing

By Christine Ferretti
The Detroit News

Detroit — A mental evaluation hearing was pushed back Friday for the handyman accused in the killing of Jane Bashara as doctors work to gather hospital records.

Joseph Gentz, 48, is charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy in the Jan. 24 slaying of the Grosse Pointe Park marketing executive. The mental evaluation was ordered in March when Gentz was arraigned on the charges.

Gentz is expected to return to 36th District Court in Detroit on June 11 to determine if he's been deemed mentally fit for trial.

...

His attorney, Susan Reed, said Friday that she visited her client in the Wayne County Jail on Thursday.

"He's doing as well as expected for being incarcerated," she said after Friday's hearing was postponed...

...

Reed declined to discuss if a plea deal was being discussed.

Friend: Gentz Confessed Bashara Murder, Last Words Were ‘Please Don’t Do That’

May 4, 2012 12:01 PM

By Christy Strawser

DETROIT (Talk Radio 1270) The man who allegedly drove Joe Gentz to the police station to confess the murder of Jane Bashara called Charlie Langton’s Talk Radio 1270 morning show Friday to say Gentz wasn’t the only one involved.

Steve Virgona, who says he’s a longtime friend of Gentz’s, also reported Jane Bashara’s last words.

“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.’”

Gentz, a tenant of Bob Bashara’s and reported handyman, is charged with murder and conspiracy to murder, though no conspirator has been charged with him. Police have named Bashara a person of interest in his wife’s death.

Virgona said he gave his own statements to police after Gentz told him his version of the story — and he’s upset that so much of what he told officers and prosecutors has already turned up in the media. Grosse Pointe Park police did not respond to calls seeking comment on Virgona’s story.

The case has captivated metro Detroit and the country — with accusations of infidelity and sadomasochism in tony Grosse Pointe, one of the state’s most affluent communities. Bob Bashara, a building manager and owner, had been married to Jane, a marketing executive, for decades, and they have two children in college.

Jane Bashara was found strangled in her own Mercedes in an alley in Detroit earlier this year, after her husband reported her missing. What happened?

“Joe had physical evidence on his face, he had other evidence that was on him,” Virgona said.

Were there more people involved in the crime? Langton asked.


“I know there is,” Virgona said, later adding, “Joe’s told me for sure that Bob Bashara offered some other people (money for murder), third parties.”

He added his account of what Gentz told him about the murder, saying Bashara told Gentz “you’re going to do the job or you’re going to die with her.”

“He’s very easy to manipulate,” Virgona added. “If there’s anything involved with money or something … he’ll jump right into it.”

A competency hearing for Gentz this week was adjourned until June 11. Verona said Gentz had a “brain aneurysm” at one point, but he’s competent and has passed his competency tests “with flying colors.”

Virgona got involved in the case, he said, after he was watching coverage of the Bashara funeral on TV and realized he recognized people in the footage. The next thing he knew, he said Gentz was knocking on his door.

“Joe got scared, he wanted to take off, but he decided to do the right thing,” Virgona said, adding that he and a pastor friend decided to drive him to police to confess. “He went upstairs, took a shower, put a nice suit on, gave me his jacket, wallet and his watch and all that stuff (and then went to police.)”

What did he tell police? ”I want to confess the murder of Jane Bashara, conspiracy to it,” Verona reported Gentz told police, adding, “The police department got video tape.”

Police held Gentz while the media staked out the Grosse Pointe Park department. But after a few days, Gentz was released — before he was arrested again and officially charged.

“That’s something I never understood … I was shocked,” Virgona said. “I can say this if you want to come and arrest me, go ahead. I was shocked because here I am … I’m a main witness to put Bob Bashara and Joe Gentz away and here they give Joe Gentz back to me and I feel like I was a babysitter for a week.”

Virgona also spoke to officers, saying they “kicked him out” of the station three times when he tried to tell his tale, before eventually taking him seriously. He said he was the one who told them to look for DNA evidence in the Bashara garage.

How did he know? “Because Joe Gentz told me,” Virgona said, later adding that’s where Gentz told him the murder happened.

Friend says Gentz told him Bashara tried to hire second hitman

By George Hunter
The Detroit News

Grosse Pointe Park— A handyman charged with murdering Jane Bashara allegedly told a friend that the victim's husband tried to hire a second man to carry out the hit.

Joe Gentz, who is charged with strangling Jane Bashara on Jan. 24, said Robert Bashara paid him less than $2,000 and the promise of a used Cadillac to commit the slaying, according to police sources. Gentz's longtime friend, Steve Virgona, told The Detroit News that Gentz tried in vain to subcontract the murder to him.

"He said Bob wanted to make it look like a hit-and-run accident," Virgona said Friday. "She was supposed to be hit by a car, and it would've looked like an accident. I never said yes, and I never said no, but I obviously didn't do it. Joe also told me there was another guy Bob tried to hire to kill Jane, but he turned it down."

...

Maria Miller, a spokeswoman for the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office, declined to comment Friday on Virgona's statements, citing the ongoing investigation.

Virgona lives in Warren and has known Gentz since they attended Lincoln High School together. When Gentz was charged March 1 in the slaying, Virgona said Gentz had approached him about helping to kill someone.

...

It was unclear whether police interviewed the alleged second man.

Virgona also said Gentz described in detail what happened the day of the murder.

"Joe said Bob pulled a gun out on him and said, 'Do it … you better do it now.' Then Jane says, 'Please don't do that.' Those were her last words."...

Competency hearing rescheduled for Bashara murder suspect

By K. Michelle Moran
C & G Staff Writer

A competency hearing for murder suspect Joseph John Gentz, 48, of Grosse Pointe Park was adjourned the morning of May 4 in 36th District Court Judge Ronald Giles’ courtroom.

Gentz was arraigned March 5 on charges of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in the Jan. 25 slaying of Jane Bashara, 56, of Grosse Pointe Park. He reportedly confessed his involvement to police, but he is said to have told them that he killed Jane Bashara at the behest of her husband, Bob Bashara. Bob Bashara has insisted he had no involvement in his wife’s killing, and although police have called him a “person of interest” in the case, neither he nor anyone else besides Gentz had been charged in the crime at press time.

Gentz wasn’t present for the hearing, but his court-appointed attorney, Susan Reed, was in the courtroom, along with attorney Paul Sinutko from the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office. Reed said they were still awaiting records from several sources, including hospitals, before the competency hearing process and report could be completed. She told the judge they needed at least another four weeks to finish all of the needed exams...

...

At press time, Gentz’s competency hearing was rescheduled for 1:30 p.m. June 11 to give the Forensic Center time to come up with their findings. Reed said her client remains in custody at the William Dickerson Detention Facility in Hamtramck. She said Gentz is doing “as well as could be expected for being incarcerated.”

As to whether her client might be seeking a plea deal, Reed told reporters she wasn’t able to discuss that prospect.

Sources say Joe Gentz is getting into trouble in jail

Published On: May 04 2012 05:43:35 PM EDT

The man who admitted to killing Grosse Pointe Park mother Jane Bashara has been in jail and sources say he isn't exactly cooperating.

Gentz causes trouble inside Dickerson jail by refusing to take meds, starting screaming match

---- Watch the VIDEO & read the TEXT ----

Looks like Joe Gentz behaving bad in jail ... - he is violent, picked a fight with another inmate once (shouting match over TV ... didn't like what was on tv ... said "want the channel changed or shut the tv off"), "off his meds" (often refuses his meds), once pointed with his finger as if he had a gun and was shooting...

Tod Flood, legal expert, said if Gentz keeps on behaving this way it could be an advantage to Bob Bashara (if Bashara is ever charged and goes to trial) .. or, he said, it could work for the prosecution, him acting out etc ... because it shows that he's not stable and can be easily manipulated to do "very bad" things...

Local 4 Defenders learn Joe Gentz hasn't been on best behavior behind bars

Published On: May 04 2012 06:04:10 PM EDT

The Local 4 Defenders have learned that Joe Gentz has been causing problems behind bars, been put on lock down and has been written up nearly a dozen times.

...

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

The Defenders have learned that in one incident, Gentz made hand motions like he was holding a gun and pretended to fire several rounds at a corporal.

On several occasions, he’s refused to take his medication and has acted out to the point where jail nurses don’t feel safe giving medications to other inmates while Gentz is in the common area.

In another episode, Gentz, allegedly angry that he was told his cigarettes were thrown away, goes into a screaming tirade laced with expletives.

Bashara’s attorney responds to Gentz’s friend

By Jameson Cook
jamie.cook@macombdaily.com

Posted: 05/04/12 06:46 pm

Bob Bashara’s attorney on Friday disputed comments by Joe Gentz’s friend that repeated allegations that Bashara forced Gentz to murder Jane Bashara.

“How incredible is it to hear one story after another?” attorney David Griem told The Macomb Daily on Friday. “We’ve heard seven or eight stories from Joe Gentz, and most of them have been repeated by his friend.”

Steve Virgona, Gentz’s longtime friend, reportedly called a Detroit radio show Friday morning and said Gentz told him 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.

Griem incredulously retorted, “How bizarre is it that someone would point a gun at someone’s head and order him to kill someone else?”

...

Virgona said on the radio, “Joe’s told me for sure that Bob Bashara offered some other people (money for murder), third parties.”

Griem responded: “There’s a theory in football and life, the best defense is offense.”

Griem contended that Gentz invented his version despite his reported mental drawbacks.

“How smart do you have to be to come up with a story like that?” he said. “You don’t have to be a genius to think up a story like that.”

...

Virgona said Gentz is “very easy to manipulate.”

“If there’s anything involved with money or something … he’ll jump right into it,” Virgona said.

Griem threw suspicion onto Virgona, saying he could be among other “persons of interest” connected to the case. Griem noted that Virgona owns a parcel near where Bashara’s body was found.

If Bob Bashara would, indeed, killed Joe Gentz, after Gentz killed Jane Bashara .... i guess, then Bob Bashara could have said that he heard something suspicious in garage and he went there and saw that Joe Gentz strangled Jane, so he shot Gentz ... right there on the spot.
