Raped a woman at knifepoint a decade ago after posing
‘Jason then struck her on the face and placed both his hands around her neck. He began to apply pressure around her neck. ‘He told her she was going to do what he said or he was going to shoot her.’
The victim did not see a gun during the June 23, 2013, assault but 6ft 4, 305lb Billingsley did produce a knife as he began ripping off her clothes.
‘He told her to get on her knees in front of him. She stated that she complied and got on her knees in fear he would harm her.’
After forcing the petrified woman to perform oral sex Billinglsey stole $ 53 from her wallet, the complaint states.
As he left the house, he grewled: ‘You better not tell anyone about this. My aunt is a police officer. Know one (sic) will believe you.’
The victim suffered bruising to her neck, lips and left eye but was able to identify Billinglsey from a photo lineout.
He was hit with charges including attempted first-degree rape, false imprisonment and assault and subsequently jailed for 30 years, with 16 years of that suspended and five years of supervised probation.
With good behavior credits he was able to walk free in October last year despite having an original release date of 2043.
Billingsley committed his first assault in 2009 at age 18 before committing a second in 2011. He served a two-year prison sentence for the second attack.
Police issued a fresh arrest warrant for him Tuesday along with a stark warning to the public that the convicted sex offender has a warped history of rape and violence.
Billingsley faces charges of first-degree murder, assault and reckless endangerment in the killing of 26-year-old Pava, a rising star in tech who made the prestigious Forbes ’30 Under 30′ list.
She was found dead Monday morning at her Baltimore apartment with blunt force injuries that one hardened officer described to DailyMail.com as ‘absolutely brutal – some of the worst I’ve seen.’
Announcing the warrant for Billingsley’s capture, Acting Baltimore Police Commissioner Richard Worley said the ‘repeat violent offender’ is capable of raping and killing again.
While investigators are remaining tight-lipped about the circumstances, police sources confirmed to DailyMail.com that LaPere’s badly-beaten body was found on the roof of her luxury apartment building.
Reaching the area would have potentially meant climbing a ladder or fire escape, the source explained.
The macabre twist raises the possibility that LaPere was either led up there before she was attacked, or that her body was discarded on the roof afterwards to try to hide the crime.
‘That’s pretty horrifying,’ said Chris McNees, a tenant of the building.
He told WJZ, a media partner of The Baltimore Banner, that the apartment complex felt safe.
‘I mean, just for that to happen anywhere in the city is obviously a bad thing, but it’s hard to imagine why this would happen specifically in this building.’
Billingsley is not believed to have known LaPere, who lived on the seventh floor of the building.
Police on Tuesday would not comment on how he got into the building, other than to say it was ‘secure’.
‘It was a secure building where someone had to have allowed the individual into the building,’ said Richard Worley, acting Baltimore police commissioner.
