Sex assault victim of accused Baltimore CEO killer feared for her life when he was freed: ‘Thought he was coming for me’


Thanks for contacting us. We’ve received your submission.

A woman sexually assaulted by Jason Billingsley — the man accused of murdering a 26-year-old tech CEO in Baltimore — feared for her life while the convicted felon considered “armed and dangerous” was still on the run this week, she told The Post.

“I was petrified. When they couldn’t get him, I was petrified,” the victim said in a brief interview Wednesday.

“I thought he was coming for me. I just thank God he didn’t kill me,” the 35-year-old woman said.

Billingsley, whose 2013 attack on her landed him in prison, was arrested by authorities Wednesday night on suspicion of killing Pava LaPere inside her apartment on Monday.

In the decade-old case, Billingsley pleaded guilty to sex assault and was given a 30-year prison sentence, though 16 years were suspended and he was handed five years of supervised probation — leading to his release last year on mandatory supervision.

While on the lam after allegedly murdering LaPere, the frightened sexual assault survivor assumed Billingsley was seeking her out so he could exact his revenge.

“Immediately when I heard the name, my heart started pounding. I had no idea he was even out,” the woman recalled.

“I kept looking behind my back, checking the news to see if he was caught. It was so stressful. I just thought he was coming for me for putting him in jail,” she added.

Court documents obtained by The Post show she told police she met Billingsley after an argument with her boyfriend and he escorted her to a property, then began to assault her when she refused to have sex with him.

He struck her on the face and choked her before ripping her clothes off and forcing her to perform oral sex on him, according to the records.

The woman told The Post she was lucky to survive the vicious attack and was horrified to learn of LaPere’s death — allegedly at the hands of Billingsley.

He struck her on the face and choked her before ripping her clothes off and forcing her to perform oral sex on him, according to the records.

“When they said ‘blunt force trauma to the head,’ I could only imagine what that girl went through,” the woman said, referring to LaPere.

“Because when he hit me, when he assaulted me, his punches were so hard my ears would ring. I lost consciousness. It was a terrible situation,” the survivor said.

Police have not revealed a motive behind Billingsley’s alleged killing of LaPere.

The Forbes 30 Under 30 CEO suffered from blunt-force trauma and her body was found on the roof of her swanky apartment building Monday, shortly after she was reported missing.

Billingsley is also being eyed as the man who duct-taped, knifed and raped a woman before setting her and another man on fire in their Baltimore apartment last week.

Described by police as a “repeat violent offender,” Billingsley had a history of sex offenses, assault, and robbery.

The mother of another of Billingsley’s victims told The Post she despised the alleged killer upon meeting him over a decade ago.
