Lou Perryman, perhaps best known to fans as “L.G.” from Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, was found dead by police in his South Austin home after being tipped off to the crime by the suspect himself.
It’s always terrible to lose someone. This case is made even more tragic in that Lou was taken from his friends and family before his time. Those that knew him personally regarded him as a loving and happy person, and his Facebook page has quickly filled up with condolences and farewells.
His daughter Jennifer updated his Facebook status with this message:
“This is Lou’s daughter, Jennifer. My Dad died on Wednesday, April 1. He was a wonderful man and was so happy to have you all in his life. He was blessed.”
According to an article posted here, suspect Seth Christopher Tatum has a history of violent crime to his name. Family members say Seth was abusive and unstable. His mother commented that he was turned down for treatment just prior to the incident due to not having insurance.
MyFoxAustin.com reported that earlier that day Tatum had brutally attacked his roommate, lacerating his hands and face and fracturing his skull. They also note that Seth was released from prison in November where he was serving time for robbery.
There is as of yet no word about Seth’s motive or if he even knew Lou. Our sincere condolences go out to Lou’s family and friends.
Local station KEYE-TV has posted more on this tragic incident both on their website and in the video below. Our hearts, prayers, and thoughts go out to the entire Perryman family.
