Arden Hills shooting suspect had business, romantic ties to victim
Pioneer Press ^ | 8-12-14 | Joseph Lindberg, Mara H. Gottfried and Sarah Horner

Posted on 08/14/2014 4:18:19 AM PDT by TurboZamboni

A Boston Scientific executive who was fatally shot Monday at an Arden Hills gas station once had his life intertwined with the shooting suspect -- they had been life partners and started a popular Minneapolis nightclub together.

But Kelly L. Phillips, 48, had moved on. He was to marry another man this month and had ended his business relationship with Lyle "Ty" Marvin Hoffman, 44.

The Ramsey County sheriff's office said Tuesday that it was seeking Hoffman as a suspect in Phillips' homicide.

Five police agencies searched for Hoffman in two hangars at the Anoka County Blaine airport Tuesday afternoon, but did not find him, Blaine police said.

Phillips, of Minneapolis, was general counsel and vice president for Boston Scientific, which has offices about two miles from the crime scene.

Phillips and Hoffman had been together for perhaps five years, said Kathleen Simon, who was previously married to Phillips and remained his friend.

From the article:

“Josh Polos, 40, of Little Canada was pumping gas at the station with his colleague before work when he noticed the black BMW pull in to the parking lot.

He said he heard bickering and swearing coming from the car as it parked. Then suddenly both men climbed out.

“All of a sudden the shooter just shot (Phillips),” Polos said. “Then (Phillips) turned to run away and he shot him again in the back.”

The third bullet was fired as Phillips was lying on the ground begging for his life, Polos said.

“He was saying ‘No, no, no, please’ and the guy just stood right over the top of him and shot him point blank in the head,” Polos said.

Seconds later, Polos said, the man was back in his car, where he sat for about 30 seconds before peeling out of the lot, driving over Phillips body on his way out.”

Driving over Phillips body on his way out.......Damn.

Is Josh the 'other man'? And how does Bailey fit in? At the end of the story they mention that he's been arrested for homicide.

"On Monday, the Ramsey County sheriff's office had arrested Nathon Bailey, 37, of Minneapolis on suspicion of homicide. Bailey, listed as Phillips' partner on a wedding registry,"

Who did he (allegedly) kill?

the last para is rather confusing... if the ex-lover did it, then why was the betrothed arrested? the para comes from out of left field, and seems to be the only reference to the new beau.
were the future and the ex co-conspirators?

Gay white guy shoots gay white guy. Script writers for all the prime-time cop dramas have another episode outlined for them.

Josh Polos and the other person in his car are the witnesses who happened to be at the gas station when Phillips was shot.

It looks like the police originally suspected Bailey, Phillips’s present boyfriend, in the killing, but then they released him. Perhaps Josh Polos told the police Bailey wasn’t the guy, or he simply didn’t match the description, or he had a firm alibi.

Polos must have id’ed Hoffman, who is still at large, from a picture.

Statistics on Homosexuals

The median age of death of homosexuals is 42 (only 9% live past age 65). This drops to 39 if the cause of death is AIDS. The median age of death of a married heterosexual man is 75 (8).

The median age of death of lesbians is 45 (only 24% live past age 65). The median age of death of a married heterosexual woman is 79 (8).

Homosexuals are 100 times more likely to be murdered (usually by another homosexual) than the average person, 25 times more likely to commit suicide, and 19 times more likely to die in a traffic accident (8).

21% of lesbians die of murder, suicide or traffic accident, which is at a rate of 534 times higher than the number of white heterosexual females aged 25-44 who die of these things(8).

” Bailey, listed as Phillips’ partner on a wedding registry, was booked into the Ramsey County jail and released about 1:15 a.m. Tuesday, pending further investigation.”

I’m thinking the person who wrote the article probably got the names mixed up.

Homosexual relationships are notoriously abusive and violent, not just sexually. That’s why the cops allowed Dahmer to get his Asian “boyfriend” back. They didn’t realize he was a victim as that behavior is par for the course. Ask any urban cop.

No, Bailey's the current bf, whom Phillips was planning to "marry." Hoffman's the one Phillips dumped, apparently with prejudice.

From my viewing of police dramas, I’d say the current bf was arrested because the romantic partner or spouse is an obvious suspect in a murder. When he was either cleared by the eyewitness or presented an alibi, he was released.

Who knows. In “Midsomer Murders,” they arrest suspects who aren’t cooperative with questioning.

I’m not sure how much we can learn from an article that says the perp and the victim were “life partners,” anyway. Clarity of expression is not the writer’s purpose.

He should have been booked for crimes against nature, if nothing else.
