Seth Tatum Murdered Louis Perryman

Seth Tatum and Lou Perryman

Texas - I am late putting this up because I completely missed it until I saw it listed in the Daily Bite. On Wednesday, Carl Drake was attacked by his bi-polar stepson, Seth Tatum. He was attacked with a pair of hedge clippers and suffered multiple injuries, including a fractured skull. Seth left the residence and ended up at a home 3 miles away. Witnesses state that Seth struck up a conversation with homeowner and then went inside. A short time later, Seth was seen driving away in the man’s car. On Thursday, Seth Tatum drove to the Travis County Courthouse, pulled into a parking space and approached a few officers. He then stated “By the way, that’s a stolen car and Im pretty sure I killed the owner of that car.”

Sadly, he was not lying. Police entered the home from which Seth had taken the car, and found 67-year-old Louis Perryman dead. Investigators say his body was covered with multiple slash marks. Now some of you may not recognize the name, or even the face of Mr. Perryman. But horror fans know the man well. All though he has multiple credits in films over his career, films like Poltergeist and The Blues Brothers, he was also known as L.G. from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2.

Police say the meeting was purely random, and that Perryman was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Tatum had just recently moved into his mother’s home after having served some time for aggravated robbery. His mother, Joan Tatum, stated that he was off of his meds and had been drinking. She also stated that she tried to get him help on Tuesday at a local counseling center but had to leave because they could not afford the treatment.

How about sending the Louis Perryman family some love over on his Facebook page.

As a horror fan, I didn’t feel right NOT putting this up front.

    A fractured skull from a hedge-clipper attack? Seth, you are using them wrong.

  • missanthropic

    At least it wasn’t a chainsaw.

    Whatever. If I didn’t say it, someone would have.

    Another wonderful failure of our Mental Health System?

    His mother had taken him to get help the day before – but because they could not afford it, they left. What’s a person to do? So many people fall into the “gray” area. Don’t make enough to afford insurance premiums/co-pays – but not quite poor enough to qualify for Medicaid/Medicare. And bi-polar is not always an acceptable diagnosis for disability, either. This family was failed – and this young man let loose on society to do just what he did.

    So sad for the innocent victims – the step dad and Mr. Perryman. This did not need to happen. Of course, NOW Seth will get his treatment – at the states expense. Too bad it’s too little too late.

    Oh yeah. Neck tattoos, does a body good. *eyeroll*

    Rest In Peace Louis Perryman! Can you imagine Tatums face being the last “thing” that Mr. Perryman saw before death? Talk about true and real horror…..
    Tragic!
    I’m sure Tatum is gonna use the “Insanity” plea, however, most bi-polar sufferers do not attack random people, usually it’s a family member or close friend….

    So very sorry for Mr. Perryman’s family, friends and associates!

    He is going to be inmate Number 999548 on Texas Death Row. By the way Seth, nice teeth.

  • silvahalo

    Most of Perryman’s work was behind the camera though some bit parts were memorable too. Many friends and family here in town are talking about you and missing you. It’s ironic and a terrible tragedy that you’d die in such a violent way….I’m sure you’d agree.

    As far as I’m concerned, he made his mark when he appeared in”[The Whole] Shootin’ Match.” ( yay, found and restored…release on DVD come July).

    Rest in peace Lou Perryman.

    Added a Deadpit.com interview with Perryman.

  • silvahalo

    oh, oh, “Shootin’ Match was released by Watchmaker Films in February ’09. So its out. A must see rare almost lost “landmark of American independent film” with Perryman. ….my bad.

    Don’t be too concerned about an ‘insanity’ plea, it just does not work in Texas. It’s going to take a plea deal to save his a$$.
