Soviet Boston lost over Strait of Kerch on 29.12.43?

Hello, according his memories, Helmut Lipfert ambushed a Boston which was escorted by 8 fighters over Strait of Kerch around noon on 29.12.43. According to his memories German listening service had heard that the plane was ferrying a high ranking Soviet officer to Kerch bridgehead and Barkhorn had sent Lipfert with a wingman to shoot the plane down. The Boston crashed on the shore of Kerch.peninsula

Has anyone info on a possible victim?
