Licking County – Son Interested in Mother’s Christmas Murder
LICKING – The mother was found in a shallow grave and the killer was her son shortly before Christmas.
According to the Licking Sheriff’s Department, on the evening of December 23, Licking County Sheriff’s deputies and detectives issued a search warrant at 207 Darlene Dr in Newark. The warrant was issued as a result of a welfare check on Debra Perrin, 67, at the request of family members who had not been in contact with her for about a week. Upon entering, police found Debra’s son David Perrin, aged 40, and another male subject. Debra wasn’t in the room. Deputies found evidence in the house indicating that foul play had taken place and that an attempt was made to remove the evidence.
David Perrin was arrested and taken to the Licking County Jail for bail violation before trial. The other male subject was not arrested.
On 12/29/22, sheriff’s detectives and investigators from the Ohio Bureau of Investigation and Identification discovered a patch on the Darlene Dr. lot that indicated recent land movement. While excavating the site, investigators discovered and recovered the body of Debra Perrin, which showed clear signs of trauma indicative of foul play.
David Perrin, who was arrested and taken to the Licking County Jail on the evening of the 23rd for violating pre-trial bail, remains incarcerated and is a defendant in the case. Debra Perrin’s death is being investigated as a homicide.
