A postmortem examination of Perry Damari’s body conducted Monday, January 10, 2022 found an extremely cold body core temperature and partially frozen internal organs, according to a Lake County (Indiana) coroner’s office news release. The Lake County (Indiana) coroner’s office has jurisdiction over Gary, Indiana where Perry Damari’s body was discovered. His body was found naked and wrapped in a plastic trash bag on Saturday, January 8, 2022 in an alley near an abandoned house in Gary, according to the Lake County (Indiana) corner’s office.
The coroner’s exam also reported a finding of scattered ecchymosis or discoloration of the skin in the right leg and postmortem thermal injury or charring on the body, according to the coroner’s release. By definition ecchymosis is discoloration with a minimum size of 1.0 cm (0.39 inch) caused by the escape of blood into the tissues from ruptured blood vessels (as in bruising), or subcutaneous discoloration resulting from seepage of blood within the contused tissue (bruised but not broken skin).
Bond was set at $5 million Wednesday, January 12, 2022 for the mother of a 6-year-old North Chicago child who died after being placed in a cold shower as punishment for misbehavior.
Jannie Perry, who was charged Saturday with first-degree murder in the death of Damari Perry, appeared in bond court Wednesday afternoon after spending time in a local hospital, where she was taken by police after complaining of illness. Perry has remained in custody of local police since charges were initiated.
A $5 million arrest warrant had been issued for Perry while she was in the hospital, and Assistant State’s Attorney Lindsay Hicks asked that Perry’s bail remain at that amount. Lake County Judge Raymond Collins granted that request.
“Our victim advocates, prosecutors, and detectives continue to support the family in this case while awaiting the official autopsy results from Lake County, Indiana. We believe that the court made the right decision with respect to this defendant’s bond and custody status,” State’s Attorney Eric Rinehart said after the bond hearing.
When asked by the judge if she planned to hire a private attorney, Perry replied “eventually,” but that for now she needed representation by the Lake County Public Defender’s Office.
Collins set a preliminary hearing date of Feb. 8 at 1:30 p.m. for Perry. In addition to murder, Perry also faces charges of concealing a homicidal death and obstructing justice.
One of her sons, Jeremiah Perry, 20, was charged with aggravated battery causing great harm to a child under 12, concealing a homicidal death, and obstructing justice. His bond was set at $3 million Sunday.
