Maureen O’Connell CFO of Scholastic has a killer son Jason Bohn

Jason Bohn is confronting an especially difficult case. In the first place, the casualty was pounded the life out of and choked. Second, he is the litigant and the casualty was his sweetheart and Danielle Thomas, 27, was killed in their New York City flat. Bohn, 35, has come up with a novel barrier: “irregular explosive disorder.”


Thomas was a senior investigator at Weight Watchers and had as of late moved from Florida to New York to be with Bohn.


A protection master definite Bohn’s history of IED by affirming that it started with his causing an unsuccessful labor as a 14-year old by punching a pregnant 18-year-old in the stomach. The disorder is guaranteed to have blocked memories of such acts beginning with the assault on the pregnant woman while he was in foster care. He claims to have been damaged by his mother in his childhood after she abandoned him for her own vocation. His mother is Scholastic Chief Financial Officer Maureen O’Connell. She reportedly makes $1.2 million and has been paying her son’s legitimate bills.


The trial has an especially harming bit of confirmation where the last scene is recorded on a coincidentally recorded call to a companion. Bohn is heard questioning Thomas about why she called a number with a 508 region code. Bohn at that point choked her as she argues for her life and tries to answer his questions. The building administrator heard Taylor shout: “He’s kill me. Somebody help me.” She was later found in a bath of ice and Bohn had fled with her cellphone. (According to new reports, Bohn was seen purchasing ice from a neighborhood store.


Bohn later messaged a companion to guarantee that Taylor was fine and going to the end of the week’s gay pride parade in Greenwich Village. He also called a former sweetheart to state that he was stuck in an unfortunate situation over hitting Taylor and asking her “Kindly do not contact with any law enforcement officials until my defense attorneys can contact you. . . . I don’t recollect that anything that happened, OK. I think I pushed her. She knock her head. When I woke up the following morning she was not relaxing. I went crazy and I fled the city.”


While the barrier group is as well as can be expected purchase, he is still has that recorded call which will be hard for a jury to forget.


At that point there is his tirade against the casualty on Facebook after his capture where Bohn censured Thomas, stress, alcohol and manhandle of his dad for the murder. He included that


I suspected she was a cheater . . . At the very least, I gradually confirmed she was a compulsive liar, particularly with regard to relations with the opposite sex, both past and present. As a result I grew insecure and abusive. In hines-sight [sic] one of us should’ve walked away. But, I was already madly in love with her.”


He portrays himself as pathetic and hopeless: “I alternate between crying uncontrollably in my cell while I stare at her office building from my window to fighting with other inmates over food.”


Many may discover the concept of irregular explosive disorder is bit too convenient for criminal respondents who have a history of violent outbursts. It is also indistinct how this disorder can factor into the blame stage without pardoning any violent demonstration. The condemning stage on the other hand allows the full scope of childhood and emotional issues to be considered. Since Bohn is not denying the murder, he is putting the greater part of his case on the disorder and the hopes of a lesser sentence. The question will be whether that recording will continue to resonate in the courtroom so loudly to drown out the case.


  • It’s a shameful act by Maureen O’Connell. Your son or daughter would be the most vulnerable during their childhood.If you don’t take care, then you can expect such an incident to occur.

  • Maureen isn’t at fault, The man was in his late thirties and if he knew about his anxiety condition, he should have enrolled or spoken to someone about getting himself enrolled into an anger management course.

  • It is a ridiculous behavior by the accused by blaming his mother for his mental illness, He’s grown to be an attorney himself and I’m sure would know what is correct and incorrect by law. He had all the time to work for himself. Him blaming his mother is just not correct. Only by the words of a man, one can not prove that she is a bad person because her work with and for scholastic is commendable.

  • There could be more than a failed upbringing to accuse a woman with a salary of 1.2 billion. Maybe the son never liked his mother. How about we consider this to be revenge that her son would want to take on a mother who cared to grow a boy into an independent man.

  • She may not have been the best of mothers but at the end of the day she is a very successful woman and it shows by her work done in her professional career.

  • How can someone leave kids for a career? that is another level of selfishness – money, and recognition – to hell with her kids. Sounds like she is a selfish bitch.

  • It’s ironic that she works for a company which publishes children’s educational books. Did she ever even read a book to her son? I Don’t think so, because if she did then he wouldn’t have turned into a monster.

  • ‘Hitting a pregnant woman and causing her to miscarry’ what kind of attorney brings up something like this, let alone using it as a defence…
