6 Year Anniversary Of The Homicide Of Susan Perkins

Today is the 6 year anniversary of the homicide of Susan Perkins. This is currently a cold case that has still not been solved, however it is a case that is still being thoroughly investigated.

On August 31, 2004 at approximately 8:30P.M., Susan Perkins and a friend were tinting windows in a salon on Maitland Avenue. A masked black male entered the salon armed with an unknown type of rifle. The suspect ordered Susan and the other female victim into Susan’s red Ford Focus and made them drive to the Washington Mutual Bank at 500 E. Altamonte Drive. After making the victim withdraw money from her account via the drive through ATM machine, the suspect ordered the victims out of the vehicle and into the trunk .

While leaving the bank, the victims were able to utilize the emergency release handle inside the trunk. The victims leapt from the trunk, but Susan struck her head on the pavement in her brave attempt to escape. Susan suffered fatal injuries.

The suspect in this case is described as a black male of medium build. He was wearing a mask and a long sleeve jacket that resembled a military type jacket. The suspect was said to have possibly smelled of motor oil.
