Could murder victim be tied to separate killing?
LEXINGTON/NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. (WTVQ)- A relative of a Lexington murder victim says the man shot and killed Friday morning murdered her son’s father. Lexington Police do not deny the two cases are connected. A police spokeswoman tells ABC 36 “[Investigators] have kept the Blair family in the loop with [their] investigation and they know where things stand”. A Blair family relative says investigators told her the man shot Friday was the suspected killer.
Teri Jones’ two-year-old son’s father, James Blair, was shot and killed in October in the downtown Chase Bank parking garage in Lexington.
“I was in disbelief,” Jones said.
Friday brings a form of justice she did not want to see. The man she says is responsible for Blair’s murder, 27-year-old Mark Boguszewski from Louisville, was shot and killed, himself, Friday morning.
“I feel like it’s not really karma. It’s more of God had a plan against the devil and against the devil’s plan,” Jones said.
She says she also knows another family is now grieving.
“I dropped to my knees and I started screaming,” Briana Frazier said.
She also lives in Lexington. She says she was Boguszewski’s girlfriend. Frazier describes him as a loving family man with four kids.
“His heart was pure. He loved everybody. If you were within his circle, he made sure everybody was taken care of, even if he had to go without,” Frazier said.
At the end of the day, Jones says Boguszewski’s death does not mean Blair’s has been avenged. It just means more children will have to grow up without fathers.
“I rather for him went to jail and thought about James the rest of his life because all I’m gonna think about for the rest of my life is James,” Jones said tearfully.
Jones says Blair’s family will host a peace walk next week in honor of him. Regarding Jones’ allegations, Frazier says Boguszewski told her he did not murder Blair, and it bothers her people say he did.
