WAYNE COUNTY, Mich. -

Bob Bashara, David Griem and the tapes. For the first time, the Local 4 Defenders are learning Bob Bashara heard the audio evidence - the recorded conversations between himself and an alleged middleman who was secretly working with police.
Attorney David Griem obtained the potential evidence and played the audio for his client Tuesday inside the Wayne County Jail.
The audio is a key piece of evidence as pros work to show Bob Bashara allegedly wanted handyman Joe Gentz killed.

Sources tell the Local 4 Defenders Bob Bashara was captured on tape talking with at least 2 different people. In one exchange he allegedly revealed he's frustrated with the police investigation and is upset with Joe Gentz. In another alleged exchange, Bashara laid out the plan by talking money and exactly how to take Gentz out.
Bashara’s attorney confirms the tapes exist but has said his client wasn’t ordering a hit. He says Bashara was misunderstood and he believes the evidence will show the conversations were taken out of context.
