Police: 911 call to Lake County originated in Lorain County

A man who called Perry Village police Friday morning to say that he’d stabbed his mother to death may have made the call from Lorain County.

At 10:10 a.m. Friday, Perry Village police received a call from a man who said his mother had “taken something” from him and that he’d stabbed her to death in retaliation. The man told police he planned to shoot his father who was tied up in another room in the house.

Officers from the Lake County Sheriff’s Department, Madison Township police, Madison Village police and Perry Village police went to the address on the 4600 block of North Ridge Road in Perry but couldn’t find anyone in the house, according to Perry Village Police Chief Ron Radovanic.

Police tracked the call and found that it came from Lorain County but couldn’t determine where in Lorain County the man might have made the call, Radovanic said.
