Who is Fraser Bohm?

Fraser Bohm is 22 years old. He is also charged with four counts of gross vehicular manslaughter in addition to the murder charges, as revealed by Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón.

Prior to last week’s deadly crash on the Pacific Coast Highway, Bohm said in court on Wednesday that he was trying to flee from someone who was pursuing him furiously. According to investigators, Bohm was speeding at the moment, which caused him to lose control of his automobile and crash into multiple parked cars, killing four people tragically.

Gascón revealed during a press conference in the afternoon that Bohm was allegedly speeding at an amazing 104 mph in a 45 mph zone when the event occurred. According to Gascón, “When he lost control of his BMW he allegedly crashed into a parked car before crashing into four pedestrians standing together on the side of the roadway.”

The District Attorney stated that Bohm knew his conduct would endanger human life gravely. This was the conclusion of the investigation. Four charges of implied malice murder were brought against him in this case because of his alleged intentional disdain for human safety.

According to the authorities, Bohm was first released after the crash so that investigators could gather more evidence. Tuesday saw him being taken into custody once more. His bail was lowered from $8 million to $4 million on Wednesday.

Niamh Rolston, 20, Peyton Stewart, 21, Asha Weir, 21, and Deslyn Williams, 21, have been named as the victims. They were all seniors in Pepperdine’s Seaver College of Liberal Arts and members of the same sorority.
