Good morning all~~
What you are about to read is graphic in detail; parts of an interview with Luana.. they may be upsetting to read, but they are the TRUTH and I felt it necessary to write it.. thanks..Leigh
I had a long and interesting discussion with Luana, DP ex-wife yesterday. As some of you may know, I had interviewed her extensively several weeks ago; she was incredibly brave and helpful. I purposely DIDN'T publish a lot of her interview, because at that time I was afraid for her safety. She had told me weeks ago the same info that was published that week, that she thought DP killed Kelly; he had threatened Luana multiple times in their tumultuous 10 year marriage.
"He told me that he knew how to kill somebody and get rid of the body so that NOBODY would find it," Luana said. " He talked about using a wood chipper and dumping the body parts in the river.. He said that nobody would find any of me." He also held a gun to her head and made her urinate into a Tylenol bottle to avoid a random urine test while working at the prison. He grew pot in their basement. It was also convenient that he was trained in the testing procedures and was able to fake his test. It's widely thought that he did it for others in the prison; a small group who were his "friends" and fellow drug dealers.
What is remarkable to me is the absolute HELL this man not only put Luana through, but his children as well. He used to hit his daughter Brandi all over hers legs and thighs.. she would often go to school with bruises all over them.
"He would get mad at her"whining".. he would pick her up and throw her down on the ground.When she tried to run upstairs to her room, her would chase her up the stairs. All I could hear was yelling and slapping. he used his fists on her. And nobody was allowed to go up and help her... if you did, you got the same treatment.," Luana said.
Luana's other two children, Davey and Britney also received like treatment at their father's hand. He would regularly slap them and belittle them... they tiptoed around him, never knowing if something innocuous would set his temper off. A certain thing out of place, laundry not done properly.. it all made him mad.
"Dave would get down on his hands and knees and BEAT the floor, screaming 'WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME?' all the time. It's like he would lose him mind or something." Luana said. "then he would start swinging, and he would say.. see? you MAKE me do this.. it was sick, JUST sick."
"He kicked Britney out .. she was 18 and had a little baby.. she stayed with me for four months, before she ended up staying with her boyfriend, now husband.
I am learning more each day about this psychopath... Luana would vacuum the house.. he would grab it when she was finished and do it again.. and again...
"When I saw that the neighbor in Florida said he could hear vacuuming all the time, I knew that was the truth. I lived it."
Dave Perry is a waste of flesh and bone.. let's bring him to justice.
