The body of a Newark woman is found by investigators near her home; son named person of interest

Police were filing a search warrant for Debra Perrin, 67, at the request of family members last Friday, according to the sheriff’s office.

NEWARK, Ohio. The Licking County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the woman’s death after investigators found her body buried outside her home on Thursday.

Police were filing a search warrant for 67-year-old Debra Perrin last Friday, according to the sheriff’s office. The search warrant was issued as a result of a welfare check requested by family members who had been unable to contact her for a week.

When they arrived at Perrin’s home on the 200 block of Darlene Drive in Newark, police found her son, 40-year-old David Perrin, along with another subject described as male.

The assistants were unable to immediately locate Debra, but found evidence in the house indicating foul play and an attempt to remove the evidence.

David was arrested and taken to the Licking County Jail for bail violation pending trial. The other man who was present at the scene was not arrested, according to the sheriff’s office.

On Thursday, sheriff’s detectives and investigators with the Ohio Bureau of Investigation and Identification found a patch on the home’s property that indicated “recent land movement,” the report said. After excavating the site, investigators found Debra’s body with signs of trauma indicative of foul play.

David remains in custody and, according to the sheriff’s office, is involved in the incident. Debra’s death is now being investigated as a homicide.

If anyone has information about this incident, they are asked to call the Licking County Sheriff’s Office.
