Police say Lenox Township murder suspect planned more killings

Jeremiah Boshell tried to find 2 Pioneer Transmission employees, police said

MACOMB COUNTY, Mich. – Police are learning more about a man they say killed his girlfriend, Lisa Ann Fabbri, in Lenox Township and left her body in a car, where she was found Tuesday morning.

Jeremiah Boshell was arrested Tuesday in Lapeer County and is being held in the Macomb County Jail. Police said he was targeting at least two more people from a place where he used to work, but they don't know why.

Police think he was ready to shoot up whatever and whoever, and end it all.

"This was a guy we all felt was going to go down in a gun battle, and he had a mission," said Macomb County Sheriff Anthony Wickersham.

Fabbri's family is still in shock over her murder. They said Boshell was Fabbri's drug they were always trying to convince her to give up.

After he was released from prison two years ago, they suspected she started seeing him again.

Police believe Boshell and Fabbri were together at the home on Frost Road Monday around 5 p.m.

"We have a neighbor indicating she heard some yelling and screaming and then heard a gunshot," Wickersham said.

Police say after killing Fabbri, Boshell wanted more bloodshed, stopping at Pioneer Transmission in Lapeer, where he used to work.

He was wearing a tactical vest full of ammo, holding his AR 15 and looking for two employees. They weren't there, so he left without shooting.

When he left, police caught up with him and a chase ensued. He fired once at a cop and again at a pedestrian before they took him into custody.

"Here's a guy we wanted to talk to," Wickersham said. "He didn't want to talk to us. He was ready to go out in a blaze of glory and shoot up whatever and whoever he could."

In his pickup, police found a rifle, a shotgun and a 9 mm they believe he used to killed Fabbri with a single shot to the head.

"We just know he's a dangerous guy and we're glad to have him behind bars," Wickersham said.

The automatic rifle and the shotgun were bought by Fabbri about a year ago, since Boshell couldn't buy them as a five-time felon since 1997.
