Perry’s remains were found in a wooded area by the Plymouth/Carver town line by a team of Mashpee Police, Plymouth Police, State Troopers and cadaver dogs.

Neighbors say Ray and his 37-year-old son Eli Perry both lived together at a home in Mashpee.

“Ray was a great guy,” said neighbor Terry Bohnenberger. “If you needed any help, or help around the yard, or if I was away and my mother was here alone he would, if I called him to check on her, he was always just a nice guy.”

“Good neighbors, both,” said Wilfer Gomez. “They have their disagreements and everything but I would never see nothing physical or anything like that, and I don’t know.”

The investigation is ongoing. Perry’s son, Eli was arrested on December 6 on a traffic violation in Plymouth. An unlicensed gun was found in his car at the time but he has not been charged with having it.
