“IT HAS NO CULT-LIKE OVERTONES — IT JUST HAPPENED TO OCCUR IN A CHURCH’ SAID SANTA CLARA COUNTY UNDER SHERIFF TOM ROSA. WHY WERE THE OCCULT ASPECTS OF THIS BRUTAL RITUAL KILLING COVERED UP? WHY HAS IT NOT BEEN SOLVED TO THIS DAY? WHY IS THIS PART OF A LARGER PATTERN?

On October 13th, 1974, Arliss Perry, a nineteen-year-old from Bismarck, North Dakota, was found murdered in the Memorial Church on the Stanford university campus. She had been in California for only six weeks.
Recently married to her high school boyfriend, Perry (formerly Dykema) moved with her husband to the campus while he studied at Stanford. Perry’s dead body was said to be found to the left of the altar, partially disrobed, and in the words of a church official—-lying in a “ritualistic and satanic” position.
However, I heard a rumor that her murderer(s) actually laid her body on the central altar of the church, but that the authorities had her body moved to another location in order to maintain the sanctity of the church. Found on her back, naked from the waist down with her legs spread wide apart, her pants were carefully placed over her legs to form oppositional, triangular shapes.
Perry’s blouse was ripped open and her hands held a votive candle folded across her chest. Horrifically, another votive candle protruded from her vagina. Evidence indicated she was beaten, then choked. The savage blow of an ice pick behind her left ear caused her death. Its handle was seen protruding from her skull when a security guard found her body. The presence of the ice pick at the scene indicates premeditation—the murderer brought the unusual weapon to the church with the intent to kill.
Horrified and shocked by the crime, the local authorities kept the occult signatures of the murder from the public. Initially, local police believed a local sexual psychopath committed the killing. Santa Clara detectives knew that personal possessions of Arlis Perry were removed from the murder scene as either souvenirs or proof that the murder occurred.
On October 15th, a memorial service was held for the young victim. The presiding minister noted that Christ, too, was “cruelly murdered by cruel and perverse men. He was a victim. Arlis, in her death, was like her Lord…Violence has swept the very altar of God.”1
The occult murder of Arlis Perry remains unsolved.
