Local 4 Defenders have learned that Lorraine Englebrecht, mother of Jane Bashara, has filed a police report stating she is afraid of Bob Bashara.
She filed the report on Mother’s Day after a series of phone calls were exchanged by Lorraine and Bashara on Saturday.
According to the police report, Lorraine called Bashara requesting that he “stop dragging my daughter's name through the mud.”
She was responding to comments he had made during a Dateline episode that had aired the night before.

Bashara called back twice, "trying to plead to her about his innocence."
While his comments were not direct threats, Englebrecht felt it was in the best interest to alert police.
"She thinks that he has changed mentally and he may be unstable enough to harm her," the police report reads.
