At about 9 a.m. Monday, a caller to the Perry Police Department reported seeing no activity for some time at the residence at 2715 Summer Meadows Dr., and the neighbor caller was concerned for the well-being of the resident.

The Perry Police Department enlisted the assistance of the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) Monday morning after a person was found dead in a home in Perry.

At about 9 a.m. Monday, a caller to the Perry Police Department reported seeing no activity for some time at the residence at 2715 Summer Meadows Dr., and the neighbor was concerned for the wellbeing of the resident.

Officers responded to the welfare check, made entry into the home and found a deceased person.

Perry Police Department Chief Eric Vaughn said his agency requested investigative assistance from the DCI in order to help determine the cause of death and to positively identify the deceased person.

Vaughn said the body was transported to the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Ankeny, where an autopsy was performed Tuesday. Preliminary results do not indicate any foul play, he said.

Vaughn said the name of the deceased is being withheld at this time, pending final identification and notification of family.
