One of Two Men Convicted in Pearl River Teen’s Murder Could Move to the Area Upon Release

One of the men convicted of killing a Pearl River teen in 1980 may end up living in the area once he’s released a second time from behind bars. Richard LaBarbera is scheduled to be released from prison later this month, after being sent there for violating his probation last year for getting drunk. He had been released from his 25-years-to-life sentence last year. Rockland sheriff Lou Falco says the parole board should have left him behind bars to begin with…

LaBarbera spent about 40 years in prison after he was convicted of killing 16-year-old Paula Bohovesky as she walked home from her job at the Pearl River library. Her 88 year-old mother still lives in Pearl River and dreads him possibly returning to the area. LaBarbera’s parole officer is reportedly going to be in Peekskill so he could possibly live nearby once he gets out.
