Jason Bohn and his girlfriend, Danielle Thomas, had plans to meet his mother, Maureen O'Connell, for dinner at Bobby Van's in restaurant in New York City on June 25, 2012 -- the night after Danielle's murder.
But after killing Danielle, Bohn went on the run. He sent an email to his mother apologizing for missing dinner and explaining his absence.
O'Connell urged him to turn himself in and agreed to help him with a lawyer.
