Just wanted to put the word out there for those who might of knew Beth that Pete was shot again Sat in Florida by a cop. The Police Dept is getteing one side of the story that happened in 1980. Pete's sister Kathy gave a public interview to the NewsSun and stated in the interview that Beth attacked Pete and he was a crime victim. The story with her side is dated August 8th, 2010. The title was Collateral Damage and the brief and interview was taken and written by Chistopher Tuffley. There is also a story on Aug 6 in the Sebring NewsSun. For right now the cops are investigating the event that made the cop shoot him dead. The public down there is angry as I don't think anybody in Florida has the OTHER side of the story just Kathy's version of 1980. That, I don't think was ever proven one way or the other. Again Pete was in a small yard on a small off street. According to Kathy back in 1980 he was helping Beth home after they got into it and she drove a car into him. Yea right. Maybe he was helping this cop this time too, um . With a knife in his hand.
Somebody needs to set those Police down there straight with some facts. I think Kathy's facts are absolute hogwash. I have a letter in my possession that says Beth did not care if Pete saw other women wrote in her handwriting. The interview just pist me off then I read the public is mad at the cop. Can two people be wrong? How does one just get shot twice? Other than maybe he gawddamed deserved it.

What I was talking about was the shooting of Beth Brashers and Pete Russo. My memory says Kathy reported the year as 1980 to the Sebring Sun, when in fact I think it was 1982 or 1983. Another thing the paper says is that she is working in the ICU unit of the Hospital down there in Florida. I know of a patient death (recent) and puzzling in Florida that the doctors can not figure out that sounds VERY similiar of somthing (two) cases back in the early 80s in Ashtabula. Came back as poisening upon tissue samples sent out for testing. NEVER would I want to land down there in that hospital as something weird is going on (maybe?). Tradegy must follow her and the black cloud of her clouded memorys linger. Beth was always happy and upbeat and she never fought with anybody or made any statements of harm toward anyone. She loved Helen Stiener Rice poetry, softball, guitar and her friends and family. I will never as long as I live be convinced she ever did anything wrong.

Anyone know when the incident in Ohio took place between Pete and Beth? Also, which agency did the investigation? I would be interested in reading a report to hear what ACTUALLY happened.

I will look the date up and post it later. I know it was the City cops and back then we had a solicitor who was in the Cartel with Escobar. He was jailed in Florida and lost his license to practice law. There is alot more to this than people know. I talked to somebody who had just left Beth's and was told what they found. I thought that it was bs and went to the Harbor and they had everything taped off. She had called me and told me she was getting chased. Then something about Txxxy Kxxx. Don't believe ANYTHING no matter what they wrote. Do you know there is porn tapes that was made with several officers right from the old building. You can't believe anything they say.

First the APD investigated and then BCI. APD said Pete shot himself then she shot herself. Then this story came out after all these years from Kathy in the Florida NewsSun.
I don't have the date and I can't remember. That Sat. night there were allot of people out late. Somehow and I don't know how, she called a phone I was by (downstairs in a building)and was upset telling me this crazy stuff and she was serious and hung up.
Kathy said 1980 to the paper but that is wrong. I have something wrote by her in June83.
It is very sad the way she left. I will never believe what Kathy told that paper.
Beth's own hand in her handwriting said she did NOT care if Pete went out with other girl's. She was also dating someone else when he was out of town.

It was June 19, 1983 and the investigation was only done by the Ashtabula police department.

Whatever, in a crowded Perkins restraunt she bluted out that"if she can't have him noone else will. And FYI, the Florida incident was caused by a lying piece of trash who had just extoted Pete's money and stged a scene. And these facts will soon be presented in Federal Court and then on You Tube. FACT!!!

Who uptown tried to turn what around? Steward? What did he have to do with any of this? Other than being there after the fact. Perkins? Never heard any of this. I have it in her writing how she did NOT care if he dated. You are putting the blame all on her. What about your brother being involved with someone a heck of alot younger? She was in high school when the relationship began. I will NEVER believe Beth took your brothers life OR HERS. I KNOW in my heart she was NOT capable of such violence or revenge. She WAS not that kind of person. For all anybody knows maybe someone else was there and shot both of them. None of this will bring them back. I miss her alot. I wish your brother would of left Beth alone. I think he is in hell not Beth. What is wrong with you? Do you need help? Then get it. Your brother had to be killed by a Police Officer. Admit it. He MUST have done something to get that. There had to be witness's the SECOND time. Was he replaying something that happened many years earlier in Ashtabula? You need to quit living in denial and making him out to be some kind of innocent person just having all this happen around him for no reason at all.? Nobody is questioning that you love your brother but you need help before you can heal. You really think some cop just set your brother up and offed him? For what? Don't you think that a cop could find somebody a heck of alot richer with more to gain than your brother to set up? I'm sure they could. i think your brother did something wrong.

To Beth's Friend, thank you for being so loving and true to my sister, she would be humbled and honored to know that you still love her so much. Beth was an amazing soul and her spirit is free and safe from any of this hateful mess. There is absolutely nothing that any of the Russo's can say or do that will ever hurt her again, please do not let them pull you down into their dark and miserable lives. She would not want that for you. Beth's love and light surround us all every single day, you can feel her if you're quiet and still, and in that moment you will know that she is at peace and she rests quietly with the angels.
And to whichever Russo this is, that can't seem to let my sister be, please just stop. We all know that the relationship between Beth and Pete was unhealthy,on both sides, and that there was no reason for such a young vibrant woman to be dating someone so much older. You will find absolutely no solice in holding onto this hatred and anger. We all were scared that day and were devasted by the events, you just had the good fortune to have your brother with you for an additional 27 or so years. Be grateful. I would have given anything to have my sister alive that much longer. So, please, stop re-writing history and blaming the tradgety of June 19, 1983 for Pete's actual death, these are two totally seperate events and Beth can not be blamed for what happened to him in the end. Deal with your current situation and stop reliving the past, it will not help you now.

Broad was his name. Fred's best friend.Beth was a sweet person, I never said she wasn't. And Pete ended up not the kid I grew up with. A totally different person that my Mother had to reteach him everything as if he was a baby again.That was like torchering to her and she Damn sure didn't deserve that. I'm sorry that that incident ever occurred. It's a terrible event we all wish never happened and I'm not here to bash anyone. But I will defend my brother especially when he don't deserve the smart a** comments by some ignorant punk friends of hers that don't know their butt from a hole in the ground.

You're right, your mother didn't deserve what she got, none of us did. we all suffered, we all had misery because of it, and we all will defend the one we love even 27 years later. BUT...as far as I know, none of us were there, and none of us really know what happened. As far as I know, it was Beth and Pete, and they both did terrible things that night. As far as I know, you were driving home on a dark country road and flipped your car in a ditch, and I was 15 years old and asleep in my bed. However it happened, Pete's gun came from his truck, and however it happened, Beth and Pete both got shot. Whether your brother was the same after that night or not, he was alive, which we don't have the luxary of saying.

As far as Captain Broad being one of my father's best friends...however pointless it is to clarify that statement, he was a friend, hardly a best friend. They barely knew each other until many years later. Beth and I knew his daughter, but that is hardly the same thing.

There is no need to defend your brother, there's nothing, in this case, to defend him against. We all have our own ideas of what happened that night, and we all want to believe that our loved one was the victim. It doesn't matter any more. Again, as far as I know, none of us know what really happened that night because we weren't there. And Beth's friend is ignorant or a punk, she loves her friend like you do your brother. We are all ignorant as to what happened, so we all fall into that same catagory. Beth was a lucky girl to have people love her so deeply that 27 years after she left us, she is still defended and loved. that's not a bad thing, we should all be so lucky.

Thank you for the kind words. I know Beth was a Christian and I know she has a place in heaven.

I remember this like it was yesterday, they never did say who or how or why, just was forgotten. a nieghbor of mine Debbie Arvanites, was a good friend of Beth's and I saw her one day just before this happened at Debbies Apartment on Lake ave. She was a beautiful girl and very kind and loved by many. Debbie ended up disappearing while hitchhiking to a rock concert in Conneaut Lake I think it was. Several years later. very sad. Ashtabula has many secrets.
