Transgender Serial Killer Suspect Blames Murders on Person She Was Before Gender Surgery: VIDEO

A transgender woman accused of killing three prostitutes in 1990 has allegedly blamed the murders on the person she was before undergoing gender reassignment, The Huffington Post reports:

Screen Shot 2014-03-24 at 5.27.00 AMCourt documents revealed this week in Washington state show that Donna Perry, 62, said she underwent a gender confirmation operation in Thailand partly as "a permanent way to control violence," KXLY-TV reports.

Officials believe that Perry shot Yolanda Sapp, Kathleen Brisbois and Nickie Lowe, and left their naked remains along the Spokane River in 1990. At that time, Perry identified as Doug Perry, according to ABC News.

After being arrested in 2012 on federal weapons charges, investigators linked Perry’s fingerprints to the women’s deaths.

When asked by detectives why the killings stopped, Perry responded, “Douglas didn’t stop, Donna stopped it.” She went on to say “I’m not going to admit I killed anybody. I didn’t. Donna has killed nobody.”

  1. I see that the word "excessive" in my statement about testosterone as a source of aggression is being ignored. Most trans men follow a dosage of 50-100mg a week, which is far below the 250-1000mg/week that some bodybuilders take. That also is in addition to those (presumably) cis men having their own naturally-produced testosterone, while trans men are, figuratively, starting from zero. The literature notes that taking testosterone may increase aggression in a trans man, but that's not at all the same as saying trans men are dangerously aggressive.

  2. Lol to Rick who thought it wouldn't be obvious posting an transphobic comment under my username directly after I posted a comment ridiculing him for his transphobia.

    You seem to spend your whole day trolling, Rick/Sam/Andrew/MaryM/Uffda/Roger. You think you'd be really good at it by now.

  3. "The literature notes that taking testosterone may increase aggression in a trans man, but that's not at all the same as saying trans men are dangerously aggressive."

    I am sure that will come as a great comfort to any schoolchildren being taught by a "transman." Or to any employer who issues a firearm to a "transman." Anyway, if the "transmen" wind up killing someone, as they threatened to do to lesbians attending a music festival recently, they can always say that it was their female alter egos that did it. And if that doesn't work as a defense, they can use "the cis scum deserved it" defense.

  4. Hey Mark, you got any proof? I mean of teams people were threatening cisgendered, lesbian women at a music festival, surely it would have been reported somewhere. But who needs proof when you can just demonize an entire group of people with scare tactics and false reporting because you think they're icky.

  6. Kiwi, I'm afraid a bi-coastal marriage wouldn't be practical.

  7. The range of blood testosterone levels that naturally occurs in cis men is usually between 290 and 1300ng/dL, while trans men aim for 500ng/dL. That means there's cis men out there with almost 3 times the testosterone levels, but I don't see anyone worrying about those people. It's almost like that concept was only brought up to scare people about trans men.

  8. Which is the more reasonable position, that transgender people can (and do) commit crime, or that pointing out that they commit crime is bigotry?

  9. Nobody is claiming trans folks don't commit crimes. You're a bigot, though, if you start making claims that being trans is a causative factor in being a criminal. Sort of like bigots claiming that gay men are predisposed to be child molesters, which is patently untrue, but bigots like to blame a whole community for the actions of a few bad apples.

  10. It is not a "few bad apples". It is barrels and barrels of apples. And disturbingly, many of the "bad apples" - such as the convicted killer CeCe McDonald or the trans protesters who actually disrupted a memorial service for murdered women in Canada - become heroic apples to the trans community. This suggests that transgenders operate under a moral system alien to the rest of society.

    Correlation does not prove causation, but it is the an important step in that process. Now that we see correlation, let's commit the resources to investigate whether transgender is causative of crime.

  11. i stand with women and girls against violence by trans activists. 2 b gay is 2 b a feminist and this requires us to stand against those who inflict violence on women

  12. PakKid and UhHuh, do you have any proof of that that doesn't come in the form of a link to a TERF-operated hate site like GenderTrender? I haven't found anyone yet who could back those claims up without a lot of mental gymnastics and referring to the work of well-known bigots.
