News headline from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department:
At around 1:30 p.m. on September 27th, deputies from the Palm Desert Station responded to report of an assault with a deadly weapon at the 23000 block of Hot Springs Road in Thousand Palms. The reporting party told dispatch that his roommate was making threatening statements and was depressed over the break-up with his ex-girlfriend.
Deputies arrived in the area within minutes and were directed to an address located on the 21900 block of Hot Springs Road. At this location deputies discovered evidence that a possible struggle occurred but no one was found inside the residence. Further information led deputies to another residence, located at the 23000 block of Longvue Road.
When deputies arrived at this third location, a man identified as Carl Richard Perdock (pictured right), 46, of Thousand Palms, sped off in a red Jeep Cherokee. Deputies chased Perdock as he drove into the desert area. Due to the terrain and location, assistance from the California Highway Patrol’s helicopter and California Highway Patrol K-9 officer were requested.
After an exhaustive chase, Palm Desert deputies with the assistance of the California Highway Patrol, located and detained Perdock for questioning. Information gathered in the course of the investigation led to a search for a possible victim.
The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Central Homicide Unit responded to the scene along with the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department bloodhound to assist in the search.
After an extensive search, the body of an adult female was found buried in a shallow grave at the residence located on the 23000 block of Longvue Road. Positive identification of the decedent has not been made at this time.
Perdock was arrested for murder and booked into the Riverside County jail in Indio.
Details of this case are still developing and no further information is available at this time.
