TCSO Finds Body of Woman


TCSO Finds Body of Woman

On October 31, 2022, TCSO received a tip that a homicide might have occurred at a residence in the 23000 block of Windy Valley Dr. The person who provided the tip advised deputies of second-hand knowledge that a woman might have been killed, and her body kept on the property.

Detectives immediately began the process of corroborating information the person provided. Evidence gathered as they ramped up their investigation gave credibility to the likelihood a homicide had been committed.

A search warrant was secured, and an extensive search of the property was conducted on November 2, 2022. Late that day, the body of a female was located, buried beneath a burn pit on the property. An autopsy was conducted the morning of November 3, 2022. Her identity will not be released publicly at this time, pending notification of next of kin.

The suspect, Peter Perius, 52 of Leander is in custody on a Driving Without a License charge. Additional charges associated with this crime will be added.

This is the 12th homicide TCSO is investigating this year.
