Maybe this has taken so long because they don't have much physical evidence against Big Bobb. Joe Gentz is the main factor and he is semi-retarded. Joe could make a deal and both could walk. I do remember there was supposed to be a plethora of phone calls between Bobb and Joe near the end, but without the content of those calls, it means little.

Appreciate your comments but maybe we should say "Mentally Challenged" as a description of Mr. Gentz?

Very true. And may he's only really challenged by the way others go about their lives. People pick on anybody that is different. I would add the word "vulnerable" to adjectives that might apply to Joe. The prosecutor will seek to exploit him as much as Bobb is reported to have possibly done.

Now there seems to be some question as to when Joe asked and was granted an attorney. Nothing surprises me in Wayne County. If Joe was not represented and his supposed confession is inadmissible, the prosecutor will be exposed for something they often get away with in cases of less notoriety.

The prosecutor sought to remedy the previous illegally gotten evidence from the home and Joe by questioning him with representation and using evidence from the newer search for potential charges.

Big Bobb is pointing the finger at "all Joe" for the crime. However, Joe doesn't seem to have the resources to pull this crime off so easily and ditch the car. More than one person must have been involved. Big Bobb has more emotional stability than Stephen Grant did so he will probably maintain his innocence to the gallows.

PS. Supposedly finding blood in the garage sounds huge, but it probably is not. The murder was said to be strangulation which doesn't involve blood loss.
PPS. I wish we did have gallows sometimes.

How do you know that it happened in that house? The police haven't announced where the murder happened. They think it happened there but haven't said it for sure. If you know it happened there then you know more than the police and perhaps they should add you to the list of suspects.

Perhaps if Mike were to meet Joe, he'd ask Joe if he wanted to go out and have a gay old time together?

And now the worm turns.
The family took umbrage at Big Bobb claiming, "We had a good and open marriage." The sisters and oldsters maintain Jane would never condone that. So they now realize that Bobb is lying and politicing for potential jurors. Privately, they probably know he did murder their loved one. The daughter has stood closest to Bobb. What a blow this will be to her when he is convicted.

Big Bob is a slob.
Glad her family has come out and clarified that Jane no was cool with an "open marrige".
He's going down....all the way down....to hell.

ps The daughter is way in denial.

Speaking of Charlie Manson, he goes before the parole board again this year. Last time was in 2007. Maybe this will be his lucky year. If he gets out, perhaps he will come to SCS and speak to City Council during audience partication. He can speak in the cleanup position (following Stahl, Lobsinger and Biange).

Bob was being interviewed last week with his mother and son.
I find it quite disturbing he wasn't with anyone from his wife's side of the family.

Being accused of molesting an in-laws child....not to mention cheating on your wife....
and of course the big “M” will tend to do that.
