Phillip and Jason Bomer

Real Name: Jason and Phillip Bomer
Case: Abduction and Attempted Robbery
Location: Humble, Texas
Date: February 25, 2001


Details: On February 25, 2001, brothers Jason and Phillip Bomer went to a Sears at Dearbrook Mall in Humble, Texas. As they left, they encountered two well-dressed African American men claiming to have a computer for sale that was in excellent condition. They invited Jason and Phillip to come in their van to look at the equipment. However, when they arrived at the van, Phillip noticed that there was no computer inside. At that point, the two men pulled out revolvers and forced Jason and Phillip into a van. Jason was forced into the back while Phillip was forced into the front.
The kidnappers then headed for the highway, and Jason and Phillip had no idea what they were going to do. Believing they were going to die, they jumped from the van and rolled onto the side of the road as it was going seventy miles an hour on the freeway. Both sustained severe injuries, especially Jason who had received a broken leg and shattered collar bone. He is unable to work as a result. However, he and Phillip survived and were able to give the police descriptions of their kidnappers. Sketch artist Lois Gibson helped the police make a composite sketch of the kidnappers.
