Perry Got Domestic Violence Injunction Against Leo’s Mom
The Pulse has learned that two weeks before his mysterious disappearance, comics writer Steve Perry was awarded a domestic violence injunction against Kristal Carroll, the estranged mother of his son Leo. Perry had filed the complaint after a domestic confrontation that resulted in the local police being called by neighbors.
Meanwhile Carroll had opened a child custody case against Perry and the dueling injunctions led to a scheduled child custody hearing set for May 13th, which Perry ultimately missed. His absence caused friends to contact the police on May 14th and launched the missing persons investigation which led to the gruesome discovery of his blood soaked van and an unidentified body part nearby.
Local news reports of Perry’s disappearance have ignored this aspect of the case even though the police and reporters covering the sensational events are in possession of the court documents.
The Pulse had published an e-mail message Perry sent out to friends and benefactors detailing his domestic situation. Our source for that e-mail, Steve Bissette, has requested we take it down. For more information on Steve Perry, check out Bissette’s blog.
