Authorities Still Investigating East Falmouth Double Homicide
By: Michael C. Bailey, June 19, 2013
It has been a week since two bodies were discovered in a Central Avenue, East Falmouth, home, and as of this morning, authorities have yet to announce an arrest, or even any movement in the investigation.
A spokesman for the Cape and Islands District Attorney’s Office said this morning that the case is “still an ongoing investigation and there is no new information being released at this time,” including whether investigators have any suspects in the double homicide.
The bodies of 41-year-old Crystal L. Perry and 24-year-old Kristofer M. Williams were discovered at 146 Central Avenue last Wednesday around 1:30 AM, after police were called to the home by a neighbor reporting a disturbance.
The victims, who authorities said were living at the home at the time, suffered “severe blunt and sharp force trauma,” but no further details have been disclosed, pending the results of an examination by the Massachusetts Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.
The DA’s office called the incident a “targeted” attack rather than a random act, but has so far declined to offer a possible motive.
The home, co-owned by Ms. Perry’s sister Veronica Jo Perry according to Falmouth Town Assessing Department records, had been raided by police on two occasions within the past five years, both times resulting in multiple arrests on serious drug charges. Ms. Perry was arrested in both raids and was awaiting trial in Barnstable Superior Court on charges filed following an October 2011 bust.
