• Blood, axes among items sought by police in missing Mashpee man's home

    By: Ted Daniel


    A retired Air Force sergeant and avid motorcyclist went missing a few days after Thanksgiving and nobody has seen or heard from him since.

    Raymond Perry, 64, of Mashpee hasn't been seen in over a week and police appear to be concerned. Perry's neighbor says there was a lot of police activity at Perry's Riverside Drive home earlier in the week.

    "There was quite a bit for a three- or four-day period between the state police and local police doing their investigation," said neighbor Dan Bohnenberger.

    Boston 25 News has learned the warrant used to search Perry's home listed the following as items of interest: blood, saliva, hair samples, bodily fluids, weapons, pistols, rifles, ammunition, cutting instruments, axes and glass fragments.

    "It's odd for a healthy adult to just disappear, drop off, and his friends who are close to him are very concerned, so obviously it makes me concerned," said Bohnenberger.

    Perry lived with his 37-year-old son Eli, whom state police stopped on Route 3 in Plymouth Tuesday night. According to the arrest report, he had a revolver hidden under his drivers set. The report also says Eli's pickup truck matched the description of a vehicle Cape Cod detectives "were looking to seize as part of an investigation they were conducting."

    Two law enforcement sources tell Boston 25 News reporter Ted Daniel that investigation is the disappearance of Perry.
