Father of Three Gunned Down
Police say when employees arrived to work at the Panhandle Converter and Scrap Company located in Dothan, Ala. they were devastated to find their boss shot to death in the company's parking lot.
Police say Perry Griffin, 37, arrived at the company around 3:00 a.m. to pick up a truck loaded with scrap metal. He planned on making an early morning run to Mississippi. Surveillance cameras on the property show Perry arriving and picking up the truck. Perry is seen unlocking a security gate and driving the truck out. He then hopped out of the truck and locked the gate behind him. Police say the tape then showed that Perry wasn't the only one on the property that morning. Detectives say as Perry was walking back to the truck a masked man armed with a shotgun confronted him.
Following a verbal exchange, police say Perry made his move, trying to grab the weapon away from the masked attacker. But at that moment, a second masked gunman emerged from the shadows. Investigators say a struggle ensued and Perry was fatally shot. Police recovered one the weapons at the crime scene.
Police believe robbery may have been the motive behind the slaying. Detectives say the video shows one of the gunmen grabbing money off the ground before fleeing the parking lot. Police say the video is grainy, but hope someone can help identify who these two men are. Both men are described as tall with a slender build. Police say they were both wearing masks and dark clothing.
Perry Griffin the Man
Perry Griffin attended Auburn University, but later went on to culinary school at Virginia College in Birmingham, Alabama. Family members say cooking was Perry's passion. He spent most of his working life as a chef at resorts through out the South.
Perry had recently decided that his cooking career kept him away from his family too much. He changed jobs, taking the position of Chief Operations Officer for Panhandle Converter and Scrap Company. He enjoyed spending more time with his wife of eleven years and their three children ages 3, 5, and 8.
Friends describe Perry as a family man who tended to his family needs. Everything he did he did with his family from vacations to attending Sunday mass. He was even coaching his son's T-ball team.
Perry's family, friends and co-workers are completely shocked. They have no idea why this has happened and will do whatever is needed to bring Perry's killers to justice. Perry's employer, Panhandle Converter and Scrap Company is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
