Nolan Ray George Convicted of Gwendolyn Perry’s Murderon April 29, 2011 in Serial Killers by Brian Combs
An Oakland County, Michigan jury convicted Nolan Ray George of murder Thursday afternoon. George shared two six-packs of Pabst Blue Ribbon with Gwendolyn Perry, then strangled her with her hosiery. He had met the 36-year-old cashier from Pontiac that night in 1968.
George had committed, been convicted of, and served the sentences of two other murders since the first. He was released in 1992.
Oakland Country Prosecutor Jessica Cooper reopened the case of Gwendolyn’s murder. Perry, who was living in southern Ohio, was arrested and charged with Gwendolyn’s murder last summer. The trial lasted four days.
Said Mike Perry, the son of the victim:
I’ve learned that justice will prevail, even after 40-some odd years. I just wished they’d done it then so that a few lives would have been saved.
Mike was five years old at the time of his mother’s murder.
George remains a suspect in a number of additional murders.
