Hot sauce one factor in Frisco chef killing

FRISCO - The death of a well-known chef from Frisco in Summit County could be about his hot sauce. It just isn't clear exactly why that prompted someone to kill him.

Court documents just unsealed show that 38 year old Blake Bostic died from blunt force trauma after a fight at the Snowshoe Hotel in Frisco. The suspect is 42 year old Charles Sattler, a contractor from Michigan doing work in Denver.

According to the arrest affidavit, on April 14th Bostic and his roommate Ryan Stevens met with Sattler and another man, Charles Upchurch.

According to documents, the four had drinks and smoked pot at Bostic's hotel room when an argument broke out and a fight followed. Sattler told police he jumped in to protect his friend from Bostic.

Sattler is a licensed semi-pro boxer in Michigan. He told police he "hits like a champ" and when he hits he "usually breaks something."

Witnesses say they saw a man matching Sattler's description hitting Bostic outside the hotel while Bostic lay on the ground.

Sattler later told police that that a yellow jelly believed to be Bostic's homemade hot sauce is "what started the whole thing" but doesn't explain why. He's currently facing 2nd degree murder charges in Summit County.

Bostic was widely known in and around Frisco as a "gentle giant."

According to the documents Sattler told police he doesn't remember the fight, but could have "snapped" when the fighting started.
