SPOKANE -- Neighbors of cold case murder suspect Donna Perry said they saw unusual activity at her house in the last month.
Neighbors said detectives visited the home on the 2000 block of East Empire on multiple occasions, leaving with bags of evidence.
William Brown described Perry as quiet, and said she kept to herself.
Spokane County Sheriff’s detectives named Perry as a suspect in the murders of three women in 1990. 26-year-old Yolanda Sapp, 34-year-old Nikkie Lowe, and 38-year-old Kathleen Brisbois were each found shot to death without out their clothes on.
Perry had been in jail since March on Federal Firearms charges. Detectives said two months ago, they matched Perry’s DNA to DNA found under the fingernail of one of the victims.
Perry went through gender re-assignment surgery in 1999. She was previously known as Douglas Perry.
Neighbors said they were shocked upon learning of Perry’s possible connection to the murdered women.
“I’m creeped out, really creeped out because I have children and I’m a woman,” Miki Ross said.
