ARTHUR BOMAR – convicted in 1998 of kidnapping, brutalizing and fatally beating star college athlete Aimee Willard and then dumping her naked body in a weed-strewn North Philadelphia lot – should face death for the horrific slaying, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has ruled for the second time.

The ruling Friday denying a Post Conviction Relief Act petition by Bomar affirmed a September 2012 ruling by Delaware County Common Pleas Judge Frank T. Hazel. Hazel had found numerous claims by Bomar to be meritless, including that he was not competent to stand trial and that his defense counsel was ineffective, according to a statement released yesterday by the Delaware County District Attorney.

The state Supreme Court in 2003 denied Bomar’s direct appeal of his death sentence in the June 1996 murder of Willard, 22, a daughter of former Chester Police Officer Paul Willard. Prosecutors said Friday’s ruling would require the governor to sign a second death warrant for Bomar, now 55. Then-Gov. Rendell signed the first one in April 2004, but a federal judge stayed the execution the following month.

“For the second time, the Supreme Court has upheld the defendant’s conviction and sentence, finding there was overwhelming evidence of his guilt,” Delco D.A. Jack Whelan said in a statement. “It is time for his sentence to be carried out without any further delay.”

There still could be a delay: Prosecutors said yesterday that they expect Bomar and his lawyers to appeal to federal court.

Bomar was on parole for a Nevada murder when he abducted Willard, a standout lacrosse and soccer player, as she drove home to Brookhaven, Delaware County, on June 20, 1996, after meeting friends at a bar in Wayne.

The Honda Civic that she had been driving when Bomar forced her to stop on a Blue Route off-ramp in Marple and abducted her was found abandoned on the ramp on the morning of her murder. Her badly bruised body was found later that day by boys playing in a vacant lot near 16th Street and Indiana Avenue.

DNA and witness accounts linked Bomar to the slaying.

  1. He’s lucky enough to be alive this long on death row. The end of his time by force is long overdue. And his actions, his lack of remorse, only concerned for himself and his response to his sentencing, by turning around, looking at Aimee Willard’s mother and telling her while raising both of his middle fingers at her- “Fu- you and your kids!” are why I have been keeping track of updates, waiting for his time to come. 24 years of life for him this year is injustice.

      1. Yet justice must not be stupid and take decades to occur. This air-sucking multiple murderer should have been lynched long ago and publicly!

  2. Our justice system is all messed up. This animal should have been executed a long time ago. It’s a disgrace how these disgusting lawyers and judges do all they can to protect these killers. Do all they can to keep them from being executed. They don’t consider the victims at all or their families.

  5. I think it is about time our justice system start thinking about how long it took him to murder poor amie and look at her family have been put through still that is not justice.

  7. Unfortunately it’s Pennsylvania and this animal will never see what he deserves!!

    1. Whose paying for his lawyers??!! We are. End his miserable life and don’t give him another thought.

  8. They hired him where i worked .Did not do a background check .He asked me out on a date, when i got done work. He wouldnt give up. I had to go to human resources and have someone walk me to my car.Thank god i didnt get into his vehicle,or should i say the womans vehicle he killed caus ehe drove a black honda to work.

  9. I just heard about this case on the radio tonite.I was what I thought was attempted car-jacking on Schkuyill Expressway in the 1990’s by a black man inpersonating a police officer , in plain clothes, in an volvo with flashing lights in the grill who looked a lot like Arthur Bomar. Luckily when he couldn’t produce proof that he was a police officer, as he insisted when he pulled me over, I hit the gas and got back on the highway.How can I find out if he had been doing this- I feel like I may have dogged a bullet and want to know more if it was him who pulled me over.
