Owens' 21-year-old son, Dominic Owens was shot to death one block over from his house in Dorchester on Nov. 2, the day before Bortner was found dead, Cruz said.
Owens believed that Bortner had something to do with his son's killing, and that was the motive for her murder. Any possible connection between Bortner and Dominic Owens’ death was not made public Tuesday.
“We have determined as part of our investigation that Mr. Owens was acquainted with Ms. Bortner and that he believed that Ms. Bortner somehow had a hand in the shooting death of his son,” Cruz said.
Cell phone records show that there were 13 phone calls between Bortner and Owens the day she was killed, Cruz said.
