Lita Sullivan, 35, was just hours from a divorce settlement, when a hit man delivering a box of long-stemmed roses, fired a .9 mm round into her head, killing the Atlanta socialite. Suspicion quickly fell on her now-wealthy husband, who managed to elude justice for 19 years.
Some people never learn. Bob Bashara, 54, of Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan, who has been on investigators’ radar since the January 2012, murder of his wife, Jane Bashara, 56, has been arrested by police for soliciting a hit on the hit man, whom he allegedly hired to kill his wife. The case, which gained notoriety as salacious details of Bashara’s personal life emerged, is being called the Gross Point Murder Mystery.
