The lawyer suspected of beating his girlfriend to death in Queens used her cellphone to send her friends several texts pretending to be the dead woman hours after she was killed, The Post has learned.
Jason Bohn -- who was busted last night in White Plains and charged with murder, criminal contempt and evidence tempering -- sent a text to one of victim Danielle Thomas's contacts early Sunday morning after her friends expressed concern over her well-being, a source said.
“Please trust me,” Bohn, 33, wrote in the text. He write that Thomas was “fine,” and even pretended that she was attending the gay-pride parade.
Thomas’ friends said the messages from the Weight Watchers exec’s phone included words and phrasings that Thomas never used, the first source said.
“She never talked like that,” the source said. “That’s something he’d say.”
Sources said that Thomas, 27, was already dead when the messages went out and that Bohn kept her body on ice in their Astoria bathtub until cops found it on Tuesday night.
A guilt-ridden Bohn also used Thomas's phone to confess by voice mail to an ex-girlfriend that he “got drunk” and killed Thomas by pushing her against a wall, another source said.
