Tip Led West Allis Police To Arrest Four Suspects In connection With Garnier’s Homicide
By H. Nelson Goodson December 14, 2011
A $10,000 reward led to the arrest of four suspects in Jeffrey Garnier’s homicide, according to West Allis Police.
West Allis, Wisconsin – On Wednesday, Qwajavious Pittman, 18, was charged with one felony count of theft by removing property from a person or corpse in connection with the November 20th brutal assault of Jeffrey P. Garnier, 57. Garnier died five days later of complications with blunt force trauma to the head at St. Luke’s Hospital. Pittman is being held on a $50,000 cash bond.
Three other suspects, Lina Pezanoski, 38, Javasi D. Pezanoski-Young, 17, and Danny Thompson, 47, were also arrested in connection with Garnier’s homicide. Pezanoski-Young and Thompson were both charged with one count of felony murder. Pezanoski-Young cash bond was set at $100,000.
The Milwaukee County District Attorney decided not to charge Lina, who cooperated with police and actually stood by and watched when Garnier was assaulted by both her boyfriend, Thompson and son Pezanoski-Young.
The criminal complaints states, that Pittman told police, after they chased Garnier accross the 9100 block of W. Lincoln Ave., Thompson knocked Garnier out with a punch and Garnier dropped to the ground, then Pezanoski-Young hit Garnier again. While Lina looked on.
Pittman then admitted, that before leaving the scene, he went back and took Garnier’s wallet.
Pittman also is alleging that Garnier with a mask on had earlier confronted and scared a 15-year-old girl. When they later spotted Garnier at a nearby bus stop, they confronted Garnier and he began to run. The suspects chased Garnier, assaulted him and left him in the pavement.
Garnier’s family members say he suffered from a mild case of autism and had no history of trouble with police. They offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those involved in the homicide. A tip led to the suspects arrest. The reward will be paid to the tipster by the end of this week, according to police.
A nearby business video surveillance camera caught Garnier’s assault by the suspects in the middle of W. Lincoln Ave.

Black on white crime…
I will send famine and wild beasts against you, and they will leave you childless. Plague and bloodshed will sweep through you, and I will bring the sword against you. I the LORD have spoken.”
II Peter 2:12
But these men blaspheme in matters they do not understand. They are like brute beasts, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like beasts they too will perish…
But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves…
