The Warren Police Department last week issued a press release saying the department continues to probe the mysterious death of Eli Perrin.
His body was found during the early morning hours of Aug. 15 in a Warren parking lot — some 3 miles from the scene of where his vehicle was found rammed into a utility pole.
An autopsy performed at the state Medical Examiner’s Office revealed that Perrin’s death was the result of being struck by an automobile. That finding led investigators in Bradley County to determine Perrin was likely the victim of a hit-and-run and ruled his death as the result of a homicide.
A 2020 graduate of Arkadelphia High School, 21-year-old Perrin was a senior at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas, at the time of his death. He had been involved with a summer internship for Potlatch as he was pursuing a career in forestry.
WPD did not provide the amount of the reward. In a Sept. 16 statement to the media, the agency said this:

Gannaway St. and East Church St. Warren Police Department is offering a reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of person(s) involved in Perrin’s death.
