Police confirm that ThunderCats writer Stephen Perry was murdered

WOW, just WOW…

Someone had mentioned to me that Stephen Perry was found murdered after I posted about the Thundercats TV series was starting up again.

I looked into it and found out that yes, this was true and it was released by police on 27 May, 2010.  This is tragic news and there is a great loss to the toon and comic community.  Although Mr Perry had fallen on some hard times it seems as though he was getting back up on his feet again.

He does have a 5 year old son and I only hope that he didn’t see his father or discover him at the location the police did.  That is something that would haunt him for the rest of his life.  I don’t know what Perry’s relationship was with his son, nor how bad it was with his ex-girlfriend (his son’s mother), but all in all, I hope his son and mother have a good relationship as he’s going to need someone there to comfort him.  My heart goes out to his son as he will not have the benefit of a father around for him (not his natural father anyhow).

Perry had worked on Thundercats back in the 80’s along with Silverhawks as well as a number of other projects.

Personal opinion here, but the creators of the new Thundercats should/NEED to dedicate at least the first few episodes to Perry.  After all, without him, they’d not have a series to rape, redo and make big bucks off of.

Also, looking at a picture of Perry, I noticed a big similarity to Pantrho.  I wonder if that was on purpose?

For the full story head on over to Comic Book Resources (CBR) and read the whole article.

His van was discovered on May 16 at a Tampa motel, reportedly near a severed arm. More remains were found in a dumpster at a gas station two miles from his ransacked home. Perry’s roommates, James Davis, 45, and Roxanne Davis, 49, were missing as well. However, police later arrested the couple on unrelated charges. They’re now considered “persons of interest” in the case.
