Six Months Missing and Still No Arrest in the Kelly Rothwell Missing Cadet Case

Six long months have gone by and Pinellas County Law Enforcement still has not made an arrest in the Kelly Rothwell missing cadet case. Kelly has been missing since March 12th, 2011 and is presumed dead. She went home from a lunch date with friend Donna Scharrett to break up with her then-boyfriend David Perry and was never heard from again. It seems that the case is at a standstill and one wonders where are all the law enforcement graduates are that Kelly, a cadet at the St. Petersburg Police Academy had gone to the Academy with. Don’t they care about one of “their own?” Have any of them helped in the search for Kelly?
There have been no organized searches, no cadaver dogs offered from the Academy personnel to search for Kelly Rothwell. The only people searching for her, it seems, are her friends and the C.U.E. Center for Missing Persons, run by Monica Caison, who spent over a week in Florida searching for Kelly at the request of the Rothwell family. The C.U.E . Center searchers will be coming back to Florida , hopefully next month. Caison has received very little cooperation from the Pinellas County Sherriff’s Office who is handling the investigation. On her last visit, there were items that the searchers found; possible evidence that they may have belonged to Kelly, found at the water’s edge by the Courtney Campbell Causeway. The Causeway is one possible route that David Perry, Kelly’s then- boyfriend, may have traveled as he left Florida abruptly for New York the same day Kelly went missing. The police were called, and a water search was conducted around the area where the items were found. There was some evidence that the items could have been Kelly’s. But then the police LEFT the items there, for some unknown reason, sitting on the rocks that make up the bulkhead of the shoreline. They did not bag and tag the items, except for a makeshift wooden item they found stuck in a tree that was directly in front of the area where some if the items had washed ashore with the tide. When I visited the area three days later the items were gone. An antique VW orange and white bus with antique blue Florida tags  was sitting at the exact spot marked by police and two young scruffy guys were picking things up … it looked liked the items the police had left.  They had a skull in the back of the bus, sitting on a black box. They insisted that it was old and not something newly found. They acted very suspiciously and left abruptly when approached. Could they have been friends of Davey Perry, Perry’s son? They looked to be his age. Did Perry have his son, who lives in Clearwater,call them to take the items the police left?

On June 14th, earlier this year, David Perry was finally (and RIGHTLY most people feel) named a suspect in Kelly’s “disappearance.” But there the invest has stood since then. No new leads have been made public; there have been NO searches or divers in the water especially in the area around the bridge that spans the Causeway where Kelly’s things may have been found. Why haven’t there been more searches? Where are Kelly’s fellow cadets, where is the outrage that law enforcement SHOULD feel about one of their own being harmed or worse? Why hasn’t Perry’s son Davey Perry been questioned more thoroughly? It’s widely believed that he knows something. Why haven’t the detectives at least checked out some leads that were given to them about areas that could be searched based on knowledge of where Kelly and Perry used to visit?

Kelly’s family members have been kept in the dark; the Pinellas County detectives have not bothered to update them in months. When Kelly’s mother Nancy came to Florida in May, she had to go TO the Sherriff’s office and INSIST on speaking to someone on the case. Kelly's sister Lauren said that Det. Amy Plourde called her this week to update the family; it was the first time any of the Rothwell's have spoken to Law Enforcement since May, according to Lauren.
What is going on here? How can it be that Perry can get away with what he has been doing… taunting the family and friends of Kelly on Facebook, saying vile and disgusting things like;

 “Maybe because David is such a handsome man, maybe Kelly committed suicide because she couldn’t be with him” …. Really?
Or how about.. “Hope the dogs from CUE can sniff through water..lmao”…
Or how about this gem: “Fuk Kelly, Fuk her friends and family and Fuk you” (that’s how it was spelled)
Or this: “Kelly was a crack whore who liked black men”.. REALLY? Are you kidding me?
Perry has been sending comments to this blog that I will not publish; they are incredibly contemptible and abusive to Kelly, her family and her supporters. He has created multiple Facebook pages, including copying and pasting MY copyrighted material to his page, which is illegal, of course. He has created multiple “Kelly Rothwell” Facebook pages, so that people interested in her case will have to sift through anywhere from 8-25 different pages,, all with no information, just Kelly’s name. He has used names like Freddy Fudpucker and Betty Hogglesnort to send disgusting comments to the pages that are dedicated to bringing Kelly home, forums where her friends and loved ones can vent and speak of her. He has sent threats to various people and actually called an employer of one of Kelly’s friends. He has posted the name of the school that a child of one of Kelly’s supporters goes to; a not so subtle threat. He has sent viruses via Facebook pages and regular email to Kelly’s supporters. He has desecrated Kelly’s memory and is now engaged to another woman, Melissa Walker, an Army specialist in PSYCHIATRY of all things, and it seems that they will marry. He has skirted around felony Grand Larceny fraud charges, even with AMPLE evidence that he did in fact commit that fraud. People have come forward, good honest people, to corroborate those facts. And STILL the A.D.A. of Broome County, Sandra Cardone, has YET to call a Grand Jury to indict Perry on the charges. She says that his lawyer is “trying to decide if Perry will testify or not” at a Grand Jury hearing. It is a classic stall tactic; no lawyer in his right mind would let their client testify. John Scanlon, Perry’s attorney, is just buying Perry time to get out of New York, sell his house and move to Hawaii where it will be difficult and expensive to bring him back to face charges.

 He is currently out on bail and seems to be making plans to get away with murder. He has posted on his Facebook page strange songs and videos, as if he is leaving clues to what he did to Kelly. He seems to think he is much smarter than everyone else and enjoys the game of cat and mouse with his postings and taunting.

How can he be allowed to get away with all this? How can it be that Pinellas County can’t just haul him back to Florida and question him? Everyone seems to be asking these questions yet the detectives have no answers.
One thing is for sure.. David Perry is a KNOWN domestic abuser who will stop at nothing to hurt someone. He is ruthless, soulless and dangerous. He has put guns to people’s heads and abused and tormented his children and his ex wife, as well as several ex girlfriends. He is a danger to those around him, an unpredictable, manic, obsessive/compulsive who thinks he is much smarter than everyone else.
But it is that arrogance that will trip him up. It is his egotism and overconfidence that will be his downfall.

Let’s just hope it’s sooner rather than later.

Because someone saw something or heard something…someone knows where Kelly Rothwell is and where to find her….. and that person could be David Perry…

Meanwhile, Kelly is still missing…. Six months now..
Too long, people, too long…

Broome County D.A. Mum on Perry Grand Jury Convening and Possible Federal Charges Pending

Broome County D.A. Sandra Cardone said earlier this week that she has yet to convene a Grand Jury in the felony fraud case against David Perry, the Elmira man who is also listed as a suspect in the case of missing police cadet Kelly Rothwell of Indian Rocks Beach, Florida. Rothwell, 35, went missing after returning home from lunch with a friend to break up with Perry, who has a history of prior domestic abuse. Perry, who was Rothwell’s live-in boyfriend of almost three years, has been characterized as “overbearing, abusive and possessive” by Rothwell to her friend Donna Scharrett, who witnessed firsthand some of Perry’s abuse and jealous rages. Rothwell, who was set to graduate from the St. Pete Police Academy in April of 2011, went missing March 12th, 2011, the same day she went home to break up with Perry. She has not been heard from or seen since. Perry abruptly left Florida that same day for Elmira New York, where he has a home and still maintains residency.

Now Perry has a new girlfriend, Melissa Maris Walker, an Army Specialist at Tripler Army Medical Center, in Honolulu, Hawaii where she was recently stationed after leaving Las Vegas. She is a member of the Nevada National Guard, having joined in 2009. She is in psychiatry at the hospital. Perry, who is out on bail stemming from the Workman’s Comp fraud case was recently allowed to visit Walker in Hawaii. Originally, one of the conditions of his bail was that he not leave the State of New York. But Perry and his attorney, John Scanlon, appeared before Judge Martin Smith, of the Broome County 6th Judicial Court, and requested permission to visit Walker in Hawaii for approximately one month. Judge Smith granted the request, a move that surprised the Broome County D.A.’s office, Florida Law Enforcement, the press and many of Kelly Rothwell’s family and supporters, who consider Perry a dangerous man capable of more violence. Perry is listed as a suspect in Kelly Rothwell’s disappearance and probable homicide.

Perry went to Hawaii sometime in July and it is now rumored that he may have applied for a marriage license for Walker and himself. Walker was approached by her superior officers and questioned as to her involvement with Perry. The question was raised as to whether her conduct in engaging in contact with a suspect in a criminal activity and who is out on bail for two counts of Felony Grand Larceny and Insurance Fraud would constitute a breach of Army protocol. According to Army regulations, there are no consequences that Walker’s involvement with Perry would preclude her from her duties as an Army soldier. According to a JAG military lawyer, soldiers are not punished in a criminal sense for the actions of their significant others. However, it could be taken into consideration when that soldier is renewing her clearance. If there is any proof of conspiracy, assistance or anything of that nature, then possible criminal charges could be filed against the soldier.

According to Cardone, she is waiting to hear from Perry’s attorney as to whether he may choose to testify at the Grand Jury and also if there are possible Federal charges to be filed against Perry for Social Security fraud as well. Perry receives Social Security disability benefits monthly, in addition to his Work Comp benefits. However, Cardone seems confident that eventually there will be justice served.

“The time that David Perry spent in Hawaii will not be charged against us (D.A.’s office). We normally have 6 months to convene the Grand Jury, but his time away will not count toward that. Obviously, the more time we have to work on this case, the stronger the case can be,” A.D.A. Cardone said. “Perry’s lawyer said that Perry might testify at the Grand Jury, so I suppose they are working on their case. Perry’s lawyer intimated that they might be waiting to see if Federal charges are pending as well. The next few months could certainly bring about some interesting developments.”

In a Grand Jury appearance, the attorney is not permitted to be present and most attorneys would advise the defendant not to testify. Everything a defendant says can be used against them. A Grand Jury is simply there for the prosecutor to make his or her case against the defendant and it is not a determination of guilt or innocence. All they need is probable cause to indict and nothing the defendant says will assist in keeping them from their goal. Most Grand Juries do what the prosecutor asks and issues an indictment.
