Convicted

Are you a fan of true crime?

Have you been following the Jane Bashara Murder Case?

Last year, Detroit was rocked by a story that you could only imagine to be in the movies. The story that unfolded had everything from hit men to a sex dungeon. What one might have thought was the perfect Grosse Pointe family had quite an awakening.

Jane Bashara, mother of 2 was found dead on January 25, 2012 in her SUV. It wasn’t even February before Joseph Gentz went to Grosse Pointe Park Department of Public Safety and confessed that he had a kill Mrs. Bashara at the request and payment of her husband, Bob Bashara.

According to the Detroit Free Press:

After his wife’s slaying, Bashara’s scandalous personal life unfolded. The former Rotary Club of Grosse Pointe member was painted as an adulterer with a mistress who maintained a sex dungeon in the basement of a commercial property on Mack Avenue.

That following June, Bashara was accused at attempting to have Joseph Gentz killed and later was arrested. Bashara did end up pleading guilty to the solicitation to murder Gentz and was sentence to 80 month to 20 years in prison.

Bashara continues to declare his innocence in the death of his wife. However, according to the Free Press, Bashara failed a polygraph.

Even after a year, the case continues to go on. Our hearts go out to their families and the 2 children.
