The ex-handyman turned cold-blooder killer that savagely murdered a Queens mother of two obsessively watched sex and crime clips on his YouTube account.
On April 9, one week before David Bonola, 44, killed Orsolya Gaal, 51, slashing her 58 times and stuffing her body in a duffel bag, the suspect updated his playlist by saving videos including one titled: ‘7 Mindsets that Attract Women Like Crazy.’
Professional dating coach, Matt Artisan, aka the ‘Attractive Man’ shares tips on how to attract beautiful woman and make ‘you become unstoppable with women… without you really having to do anything.’
Bonola did not upload videos himself, but instead saved a series of clips that he liked onto a playlist on his YouTube account, which is publicly visible.

Other videos Bonola saved included titles like ‘Pickup and first date confidence’ and ‘how to go down on a woman’
Additional videos on his playlist were sexually graphic in nature, while others dealt with topics such as: ‘How to deal with a relationship when a woman is just not that into you;’ ‘How you know you are with a Hungarian woman;’ ‘Male magnetic mindset that drives women wild.
Bonola also appeared to be obsessed with New York City crime.
His YouTube channel shows he saved thousands of shooting, rapes and murders, on curated playlists, including 754 videos of local news reports of violent crimes, The New York Post reported.
Some of the stabbing videos were eerily similar to the brutal slaying on the Queens mother. One of his videos shared the news report of Amie Harwick, a former sex therapist, who reportedly sought two restraining orders against ex-boyfriend before her February 2020 murder in Hollywood, the news outlet said.

Gaal had hired Bonola to do handyman in her Forest Hills home. The pair had been having an on-off affair for two years before he allegedly murdered her with a kitchen knife in her basement during the early hours of April 16, while her 13-year-old son was upstairs.
Surveillance footage captured just hours after her murder showed Bonola walking along 114th Street near his apartment in Richmond Hill, just after 6am.
He is seen with bandage wrapped around his left hand as he makes his way down the street before heading into his apartment.

Later that Saturday, Bonola allegedly headed to a CityMD in order to receive help for cuts on his hands. He was referred Bellevue Hospital after urgent care doctors said the wounds were too deep for them to treat.
Police said they received a call around 8.10am on Saturday for a report of ‘a suspicious bag with blood on it at the corner of Metropolitan Avenue and Jackie Robinson Parkway.’ The bag held Gaal’s body.
Cops then followed a trail of blood left by the dragged bag, leading back to Gaal’s home. They found son, Leo, inside unscathed and took him in for questioning, putting him in handcuffs, before letting him go later that day.
Gaal’s husband Howard Klein and her older son Jamie, who had been on the West Coast, rushed back. They have not been seen or heard from since.
He had reportedly gone over to the home in an attempt to resurrect the affair as the relationship had come to ‘the end’.
Bonola later confessed to the heinous crime after being spotted by police days after the murder.
Police sources who spoke with the New York Post say he spilled his guts in an entirely ‘matter of fact’ manner – and then proceeded to eat a bagel with cream cheese as if nothing had happened.
‘It was very matter of fact, very thorough, he answered every question they had,’ a police source told the newspaper. At no point did he request a lawyer.
Then, as he was put in a police car on Thursday in front of journalists asking why he killed her, he screamed: ‘F**k you motherf****r!’
Bonola has been living in the U.S. illegally after moving from Mexico 20 years ago. His estranged wife and children are believed to live in Queens with him.
NYPD detectives declined to comment on Bonola’s immigrant status but ICE has now filed a detainer with Queens Central Booking, where he is being held.
It is unclear if he will face additional charges related to his immigration status.
