The family of Archie Perry Jr. is offering a cash reward of $100,000 in exchange for tips that lead to the arrest of his killer.

On Saturday, Sept. 23, 2023, at approximately 11:28 p.m., a citizen called 911 and reported that shots were being fired on Turpentine Run Road in the area of “Concrete” Bar.

Central Dispatch notified Mariel C. Newton Command officers to travel to Turpentine Run Road for an unresponsive male lying in the roadway. Upon the unit’s arrival, an unresponsive male was observed with what appeared to be gunshot wounds about his body. Emergency Medical Technicians were on scene and stated that the male had no vital signs. The male was identified by next of kin as 39-year-old Archie Perry Jr.

Archie Perry was a father of four, brother and son. He had a personality that was one of a kind.  Archie’s passion for life extended well beyond himself. He lived life to the fullest and lit up a room with his compassionate heart, contagious smile and comical humor. Archie was a crucial asset to the family business that he started working for at a very young age.  Archie resided in New Jersey but was on St. Thomas on Sept. 23, 2023, for work when he was shot multiple times about the body. If anybody has information regarding his murder, please step forward and help bring justice to him and closure to his family.
