Bashara "treading water," waiting for developments in wife's murder case
Published: Saturday, April 07, 2012

By Mitch Hotts

With the prospect of criminal charges being filed against him in the next 10 days in connection with the murder of his wife, Bob Bashara plans to attend Easter Mass today and spend the rest of the day relaxing and reflecting at his Grosse Pointe Park home.

New rumors have emerged indicating the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office may file charges by the end of the upcoming week or in the beginning of the week of April 16 alleging Bashara had a role in the strangulation of his 56-year-old wife, Jane.

“This holiday weekend is going to be the worst time for the family,” said defense attorney Dave Griem. “For Bob, the loss of his wife has had a horrific effect on him and their two children because Jane was the rock of the family, their source of strength.”...

----

...In the meantime, Bob Bashara continues to go about his work as a property manager overseeing rental properties in Detroit and Grosse Pointe. He and his mother last month took a drive to Iowa to visit his son and returned to Michigan without incident.

“He’s treading water right now,” Griem said. “He’s been spending time with his kids and doing a tremendous amount of public service work.”

Griem said Bashara no longer has contact with Rachel Gillette, the former Wayne State University employee and alleged mistress who has been linked to Bashara. Internet postings on a sadomasochism website suggest the two were involved in an S&M relationship.

Bashara has received about two dozen letters from character witnesses in case he is charged with his wife’s murder. The letters would be used to convince a judge to release him on bond while the case is pending.

“That’s pretty impressive considering the massive amount of media coverage related to this tragedy,” Griem said.

I sure hope he isn't granted bail if and when he get's arrested!!! Even if he didn't kill her (which I think he did, who else had motive), just for crap he did to Jane in the marriage.

I wonder if Grime has lost some client's due to his opening of his mouth in this case and how he handles himself in the news. I'd never hire the guy, even if he was free.

Yes... Oakland County's conviction rate DOES look like around 97 / 98% ( as also is mentioned, for example, HERE: http://calltodecision.com/sout.htm )

Wayne County's conviction rate ... Google says:

Overall Conviction Rate 2008: 94.35% ( Source: http://www.co.wayne.mi.us/prosecutor/homicide.htm ... Good site actually ... gonna look around there a bit later on )

Investigators question Bob Bashara's children about their mother's murder

Posted: Monday, April 09, 2012, 4:51 PM

By: Smita Kalokhe

DETROIT (WXYZ) - Investigators are speaking closely to Bob Bashara’s children as they look into the murder of their mother, Jane.

Sources tell Action News charges against Bob could be brought within a couple months, but for now only handyman Joe Gentz is charged with her murder. The Wayne County Prosecutor’s office says the investigation is on-going.

In an interview with Action News, Bashara’s attorney, David Greim, disregarded any possible charges. “I don’t place much stock in that because we’ve had rumor after rumor after rumor and probably 90% of them have not been factual.”...

-------

Greim claims the investigators unfairly tried to convince the siblings of their father’s involvement, but he went on to say Jessica stood by her father.

“She said, ‘I came away very mad at my father if any of the allegations about other women are true, but I also came away feeling just as strongly as I always have that my father had nothing to do with my mother’s death,’” says Greim...

Authorities continue to probe the case with an eye toward possibly charging Bashara for involvement in the slaying. A report from NBC's Craig Melvin that aired on TODAY Tuesday examined claims that Bashara had lived a dark double-life that may ultimately end up in charges for his wife's death.
Contacted by NBC, prosecutors would neither confirm nor deny potential charges against the 54-year-old, saying, "The investigation into the murder is continuing." But the Detroit-area newspaper The Macomb Daily reported Sunday that Bashara may be charged within the next 10 days.

The prosecutor should approach Amy to be the first person on the BB character assassination list as a counter to Griem's list. Amy's account of her impression of BB is interesting as her experience points out the two faces of BB. It seems BB was either acting as one character or the other depending on his motive at the time. He must not have felt the need to be polite to the other party goers at the fetish party. Don't you love it? Just because he calls himself 'Master' doesnt mean everyone has to - lol!

Thank you for sharing Amy.

According to Griem, Jessica is standing by her father. Does that mean that BB's son has begun to accept the truth?

Also Griem is quoted as saying, "Robert Bashara, his children and I are treading water in a lake full of sharks,".
The two people who keep mentioning BB's children are Griem and BB himself. They are using the grown children as tools to suggest that people are wrong to speak out about their suspicions that BB is the mastermind behind the cold blooded killing of the mother of these two young adults. The audacity of some people is beyond comprehension. Griem should be the poster boy for audacity = a: intrepid boldness, or, b: bold or arrogant disregard of normal restraints.

Amy is not too talkative (besides her blog(s))

I tried once to ask her something .. and didn't get a straight answer out of her

She seems to do better just posting at her blog(s) .. than to "personal communicate"
