Son Shot Mother Dead Over Insurance Money in Joliet; Called the Police & Confessed

Justen Holman, 21, chose to call Joliet police from Larkin Avenue and confess why he took his mother Bernadette Quasie’s life after killing her multiple times last week in her Plainfield, Illinois, bedroom, according to a petition to deny pretrial release for Joliet’s most recent first-degree murder defendant.

Holman’s next hearing has been scheduled for January 5 in Courtroom 405 by a Will County judge. Holman, who is currently being held on three counts of first-degree murder, is required to remain in his Will County Jail cell until his trial. While his murder case is on trial, he will not be allowed to reintegrate into society.

Mike Fitzgerald, a longtime assistant state’s attorney, filed a petition alleging that Holman had implicated himself in a homicide and that his mother’s body was discovered inside the family’s home at 6452 Langsford Lane when Joliet police visited.

Police in Joliet Holman said that the gun in the trunk was a PSA Dagger 9mm when Detective Esqueda-Reed questioned him about it.

Subsequently, officers discovered the gun in a backpack within the trunk, along with a gun magazine inside the console of the car.
