    Todays San Diego Union Tribune newspaper has announced that Frank Bass has passed away. Actually he passed away on Feb 13th. Frank died from self inflicted gun shot wound to his abdomen after beating, stabbing and shooting his ex-wife Ginger Bass. For those of us in Southern California, look in the "OUR REGION" section of today's paper, back page under the weather section for details..

    Man who shot himself and ex-wife in 2008 dies
    By Debbi Baker, UNION-TRIBUNE STAFF WRITER

    EAST COUNTY — A man who authorities say stabbed and shot his former wife to death after an acrimonious divorce almost two years ago and then tried to kill himself with a shotgun has died.

    Frank Bass, 54, died Feb. 13 at Edgemoor Hospital in Santee from complications from a self-inflicted shotgun wound to the abdomen, officials with the Medical Examiner’s Office said. Both of his legs had been amputated at the knees and all of his fingers had been amputated at mid-knuckle because of circulation problems associated with his wounds, sheriff’s homicide Lt. Dennis Brugos said.

    Bass was suspected of killing his former wife, Ginger Bass, 51, at her home in Lakeside on May 31, 2008, three days after the dissolution of their eight-year marriage was finalized.

    Ginger Bass had a restraining order against her husband after she claimed he raped her, threatened to kill himself and promised that the only way they would be apart would be through death, according to her divorce filing. He had been ordered to have no contact and to stay 100 yards away. Brugos said that Frank Bass was sending e-mails to his former wife almost every day, saying that he did not want to go on without her and no longer wanted to live.

    Ginger Bass was a real estate broker and manager of the Re/Max Associates branch in La Mesa. She had lived in Alaska for several years, where she and her first husband adopted three siblings from Bogota, Colombia. Her cousin Sheryl Parsons said Ginger Bass once worked as a truck driver on the Alaskan pipeline, designed and built log cabins and was a stained-glass artist.

    Reached by phone at her Utah home, Parsons said she had not heard that Frank Bass had died. She said the family has tried to move on and is trying not to look back. As for Frank Bass, she said, “I feel he got his just rewards.”

    Frank Bass worked as a home inspector and property refurbisher. He was never charged with a crime related to the attack because of his medical condition.

    Hello,

    This is Tom Larson from the San Diego Reader. For an article I'm writing about the murder-suicide of Ginger and Frank Bass, I'm looking to speak with anyone who knew either of them.

    We can talk on the record or off the record, whatever feels comfortable.

    Email is a good place to start: tlarson@adnc.com or a phone call, 858-273-4806.

    I would like to find out more about their backgrounds, what they were like as people, what their friends thought of them, and so on, to fill out such a tragic story.

    Best,
    Tom Larson
