GROSSE POINTE (WWJ) – There are still no criminal charges in the Jane Bashara murder case, but police do have more leads to track down.
WWJ’s Ron Dewey reports that investigators have been talking to a man who turned himself in Tuesday morning — indicating that he had knowledge of the murder.
The man identified in reports as 48-year-old Joseph Gentz of Saint Clair Shores claims he was at the home the night Jane Bashara was strangled to death, although the extent of his involvement not yet clear.
Speaking live on WWJ, defense attorney David Griem, who has been retained by the Bashara family, said Gentz has no credibility. Griem is well-known as the attorney who represented Stephen Grant, the Macomb County man who killed and dismembered his wife on Valentine’s Day a few years ago.
