Police investigate apparent double homicide

FALMOUTH, Mass. (WHDH) — Falmouth and state police are investigating an apparent double homicide after two bodies were discovered in a home early Wednesday morning.

Investigators said a call from a neighbor brought them to the Central Avenue home, where 43-year-old Crystal Perry and a 24-year-old man were found beaten to death. Both victims lived at the house.

“The Falmouth police department along with the state police detectives assigned to the District Attorney’s office are in the process of investigating what appears to be a double homicide,” said Michael Trudeau of the District Attorney’s office.

More than a dozen friends and family members stood outside the home as police collected evidence.

“Police haven’t said anything to me. I don’t know nothing. So all I know is she was a very loving and caring person. That’s all I can say,” said June Pina, a family friend.

Police said it doesn’t appear to be a random act.

“It appears to be an isolated incident. It does not appear to be any need for alarm on the part of the citizens,” said Trudeau.

Some neighbors said police have been to the house before.

“Since I’ve been here there’s been two major drug raids [at that house],” said a neighbor.

Perry was a member of the tight-knit Mashpee Wampanoag tribe.

“Crystal was a Mashpee Wampanoag and the whole tribe is in mourning right now, so just let us come together and mourn,” said one woman.

Investigators are awaiting autopsy results. No arrests have been made.

Police are encouraging anyone with information about the incident to contact police at (508) 457-2527.
