Slain businessman was family's latest crime victim

CLEVELAND - A funeral is planned this week for a slain businessman who is his family's latest crime victim in the same Cleveland neighborhood.

Frank Tominc, 58, of Wickliffe, was shot and killed last week at his used-car lot in Cleveland. No arrests have been made.

His mother was robbed and beaten four years ago in her home. And his mother-in-law was stabbed and strangled in 1994 inside her home in the same neighborhood.

Block-watch groups in the area are considering hiring off-duty police officers as security guards.
