Man Jailed for Allegedly Murdering His Grandmother

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

A 25-year-old man is in jail on $250,000 bond for allegedly beating his grandmother to death with a chair in her home over the weekend.

Judge Karen Orzech said, "In light of the seriousness of the alleged crime, and danger to the community, the court is going to set bail at $250,000."

Court documents show 25-year-old Tyler Perry hitchhiked to Missoula from Seattle, and had been living with his grandmother since Thanksgiving.

On Saturday around 9 p.m., Missoula Police responded to 1555 Kent Avenue.

Police said Perry had told a tow truck driver outside the house to call 9-1-1 because he'd just killed his grandmother.

Inside, police found Carol Perry dead on a couch in the living room with blunt force trauma to her head.

Investigators discovered a chair-- broken into several pieces-- with blood on the seat.

During an interview, investigators said Perry confessed he'd taken  chair and hit his grandmother multiple times in the head.

Perry also told investigators he'd done it because his grandmother had a "third eye" and she was trying to suck the life out is tyranny, and that "everybody knew we needed to bash her over the head."

He also told police he'd never had previous psychiatric treatment, nor any diagnosed mental health issues.

Court documents also show Perry's family members had become concerned about his mental stability.

Perry is scheduled to appear in court again on December 30.

 


 

Missoula Police said a Missoula man will appear in Justice Court Monday afternoon after allegedly killing a female family member Saturday night.

On December 14, 2013, at 8:55 p.m., Missoula Police were dispatched to a residence in the 1500 block of W. Kent Avenue to investigate a death.  

Responding officers said an adult male, who's been identified as Tyler D. Perry, was outside the house who informed officers he had just killed someone inside the house.

Officers entered the home, and found a deceased adult woman with blunt force trauma to her head.  

Perry was placed under arrest for deliberate homicide.

The woman is believed to be a family member of the suspect.

Her name is not being released at this time.

If anyone has information regarding this incident, they are urged to contact Detective Guy Baker at (406) 396-3217.
