“Crime Stories,” host Nancy Grace said the suspect accused of killing a Pennsylvania man last week was a career criminal who should have never been released.
During Thursday’s episode of “Fox & Friends,” Grace took issue with the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office’s comments that “many balls were dropped” before Milan Loncar’s shooting death on January 13. Grace said murder suspect Davis L. Josephus, 20, has a lengthy criminal history, which includes prior arrests for armed robbery, but he released from jail on a lower bond.
“Is that supposed to make the victim’s family feel any better?” Grace said, referring to officials’ apparent acknowledgment that Josephus should have remained behind bars.
Grace said two suspects, including Josephus, approached Loncar as he walked his dogs. One of the suspects allegedly placed a gun to Loncar’s chest and fired before going through his pockets and fleeing.
Two weeks before Loncar’s murder, Josephus — who was charged with motor vehicle theft, kidnapping, and aggravated assault on a prison guard — was released on a $20,000 bond.
WTXF reported that a second person of interest has been identified, but officials have declined to provide a name, citing an ongoing investigation.
“I don’t know how many innocent victims’ bodies have to pile up before people revolt at the courthouse,” Grace told FOX. “Cash bail bond, they’re getting rid of that. Bond reform…it’s a revolving door.”
