Convicted Killer Of Tito Jackson’s Ex-Wife Is What Many Least Expected
The tragic murder of Tito Jackson’s wife, Dee Dee Jackson, rocked the entire Jackson family, whom Dee Dee was very close to. Dee Dee was married to Tito for 21 years (from 1972-1993) and is the mother of his three sons, Tarryll, Taj, and TJ (also known as the pop group, 3T). She was murdered on April 27, 1994. For many years, many details surrounding her death and her convicted killer were unknown, but what we’ve now learned is that her death seemed more like a twisted movie drama plot. Extremely heartbreaking indeed…see details…
JACKSONS CLAIM DEE DEE JACKSON WAS KILLED OVER EXTORTION ATTEMPT
It was alleged that Donald Bohana wanted Dee Dee to extort money from the Jacksons to cover his mounting business debts and became angry when she refused.
Tito's and Dee Dee's sons filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Bohana in 1995 and their lawyer, R. Brian Oxman, told Jet Magazine this at the time:
"He (Bohana) owed almost $2 million in debt at the time of her [Dee Dee's] death. He had assets of $800,000 and he was in severe financial difficulty. He met her two months before her death. When folks meet members of the Jackson family, they automatically think of money," [stated Oxman] "We believe that immediately upon her arrival Aug. 26th  around 11:30 p.m. they started arguing. This was a horrendous fight. She had 58 TOTAL INJURIES if you include scratch marks and bruises."
