Perry Park Deaths Investigation

At approximately 6:00 p.m. on April 3, 2011 the Leon County Sheriff’s Office responded to a death investigation in the 6500 block of Springhill Road. Deputies arrived and discovered Adam Perry, 35, deceased. Perry was lying on the front porch of his residence and appears to have died from a gun shot wound. Inside the residence, deputies located the body of Samantha Swain, 28. Swain also appears to have died from a gunshot wound.

The initial investigation indicates that Perry and Swain were acquaintances. Detectives believe there was some type of altercation between the two that resulted in Perry shooting Swain and then shooting himself.

Preliminary results from the autopsies performed on April 4, 2011 confirmed both Perry and Swain died from a single gun shot wound.
