Milan Loncar Biography — Wiki
Milan Loncar was a college graduate who was walking his dog about a block from his home after he was shot by Josephus Davis, the suspect who was released on bail just two weeks before the slaying after his kidnapping trial was delayed eight times.
The delays that led a judge to lower Davis’ bail have been blamed on a combination of delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
Josephus was arrested over the killing of Loncar who was shot on Wednesday night while walking his dog about a block from his Brewerton, Philadelphia home. He posted $20,000 bail on December 29 on charges of motor theft and kidnapping, and $12,000 on charges. The figures had been dramatically reduced from the original sums of $100,000 and $200,000 respectively, the paper said.

What happened to Milan Loncar?
Milan Loncar was shot dead just before 7 pm local time on Wednesday after being approached by two men. Police said one of the men pointed a gun at Loncar then both reached for his pants pockets before he was shot once in the chest. Surveillance footage captured the deadly encounter.
Loncar was reportedly still holding the leash of his dachshund-chihuahua mix dog named Roo when officers found his body.
Later that evening, officers apprehended the driver of a vehicle stopped in connection with a carjacking from the day before.
Four other men fled the vehicle and the captured driver was later identified as Josephus, who lives just two streets away from Loncar.

What we know so far about Milan Loncar: Family, Girlfriend
As of Monday, Loncar’s family had raised more than $57,600 on GoFundMe offering a reward to anyone with information leading to the arrest of the suspects. Loncar’s mother told WPVI-TV that she was ‘shaking’ when she heard the news that two men had been detained.
It came after his girlfriend called him her ‘soulmate’ as she broke down in tears during his vigil on Friday night. Family and friends gathered at the site where Loncar was killed, illuminating a portrait of him with the light of their cellphones, while also playing music and singing for him.
‘He was my soulmate, and I don’t think I have a plan anymore without him,’ Loncar’s girlfriend, Olivia Gorski, said at his vigil, fighting tears while being comforted by his mother, Amy Lounsberry.
Gorski had been planning to move in with Loncar next month.
Josephus Davis bail
Police said a second man has been identified in the killing and is considered a person of interest. District Attorney Larry Krasner said in a statement on Sunday night that his office had opposed the reductions in Josephus’ bail before the judges but that the sums had been slashed ‘over our objections’.
The paper reported that on one occasion a witness was not in court while on another, officials did not bring Josephus to court from jail. Judge Teresa Carr Deni lowered Josephus’ bail to $20,000 following a motion from his court-appointed defense lawyer James Richard Llyod III.
Josephus posted $2,000 – the required 10% of his bail – on December 29, two weeks before Loncar’s January 13 killing.
