Victim's co-worker considered estranged husband "crazy"


MADISON (WKOW) -- Dane County court documents show a co-worker of homicide victim Jennifer Boyce considered Boyce's estranged husband, Bernard Grosso, "Crazy," and said Boyce told her she received hundreds of harassing emails from Grosso on given days.

Authorities say Grosso apparently killed Boyce last week, and then apparently took his own life, on the eve of the couple scheduled to culminate a divorce in court.

According to an affidavit filed in connection to a search of Grosso's east Madison home and car, Boyce's co-worker, Emelia Wollenburg says when Boyce failed to show up for work last week, she believed Grosso "did something to her."

Court documents state Wollenburg said Boyce told her Boyce pressed Grosso about why he acquired a M16 rifle a few months before Boyce filed for divorce, and Grosso told Boyce the gun was for target practice. Madison police officials say Grosso apparently shot himself, with a shot gun and an assault rifle found at his home near his body. The Dane County medical examiner says Boyce was attacked with an edged weapon.

According to the affidavit, Boyce was allowed to move into the Milwaukee Street apartment where her body was found without even signing a lease last year, because she was going through a difficult time and need some place to live right away.

Search warrant documents state investigators were looking for firearms, any sharp edged item and other objects in their search of Grosso's home. What was seized by investigators in the search is classified as "biological evidence."
