Damari Perry Wiki – Damari Perry Biography
Damari Perry was found dead in Indiana. His mother and two siblings have been charged with the boy’s death after they spun a “completely false” story that the child was missing.
He was 6 years old.
Perry was reported missing by his 38-year-old mother, Jannie Perry, and a sibling on Jan. 5. The family told police that he might have been missing in Skokie, Ill., where the boy and his 16-year-old sister were driven to a party by a man and a woman, police told NBC 5.
The sister reportedly told cops that she fell asleep after having several drinks at the party and woke up to find the boy and the man who had driven her gone.
However, that tale turned out to be “completely false” when investigators quickly uncovered several contradictions in the story based on evidence found in Skokie and instead turned their attention on the boy’s North Chicago home, according to the Lake County State Attorney’s Office.

Officials said that investigators interviewed several witnesses – including several juveniles – which led them to Damari’s body, found near an abandoned home in Gary, Indiana.
The cause of death has not been revealed, pending an autopsy later this week in Indiana.
Damari’s mother was charged with first-degree murder, concealment of a homicidal death, and obstructing justice, the Lake County State Attorney’s Office announced.
Mother and Siblings Charged in Murder
Damari’s 20-year brother, Jeremiah R. Perry, was charged with aggravated battery causing great bodily harm to a child under 12, concealing a homicidal death, and obstructing justice.
A juvenile sibling also faces charges in Lake County Juvenile Court.
More charges could be filed against the family as the investigation continues.
“Our hearts ache over the murder of 6-year-old Damari Perry,” Lake County State’s Attorney Eric Rinehart said in a statement. “We would not have reached the awful truth of this case without the work of the FBI, the North Chicago Police Department, and the investigators and staff at the Lake County Children’s Advocacy Center.”
