Photos you see in this story, aside from the suspect, have not been identified.
KHQ.COM - The Spokane County Sheriff's Office and Spokane Police Departments Major Crimes Detectives are combining their resources into three cold homicide cases. These homicides occurred in February, March and May of 1990 and have been unsolved for the past 22 years. Recent scientific evidence provided to investigators has allowed for significant advances in these investigations, and we are asking the community for help.
On February 22, 1990, 26-year-old Yolanda Sapp's body was discovered in the area of 4100 E. Upriver Drive. On March 25, 1990, 34-year-old Nikkie Lowe's body was discovered at 3200 East South Riverton underneath the Green Street bridge.
On May 15, 1990, 38-year-old Kathlene Brisbois' body was located on the west side of the Spokane River near Trent and Pines in Spokane Valley. All three women were shot with a small caliber handgun.
Detectives have identified a "person of interest" in this investigation, as 60-year-old Douglas R. Perry. Perry was between 37 and 38 years old at the time of the homicides.
Detectives would like to speak with any known associates of each of the three victims, as well as anyone who may have had contact with Douglas Perry during the late 1980's to early 1990's. In particular, detectives are searching for anyone that may have purchased a firearm from Perry, during this period of time.
