Cold Case Spotlight: Mary Perkins
September 15, 2023
Today, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office released another "Cold Case Spotlight". This monthly feature spotlights a murder that the Sheriff's Office has classified as a cold case. The hope is that this will lead to the identity of a suspect(s) and
in turn help bring some closure to those impacted by these senseless crimes.

September’s spotlight is on Mary Perkins (Black / Female, 51, pictured).

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office was notified of Perkins’ body on Saturday, March 3, 2007, in the 3500 block of Rosselle Street. The Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department also responded and pronounced the victim deceased. It appeared the victim’s body had been there for several days. An autopsy conducted by the Medical Examiner’s Office concluded Perkins suffered from several lacerations and stab wounds.

JSO's Homicide and Crime Scene Detectives collected and examined evidence, interviewed citizens in the area, and followed-up on leads. Eventually, those leads stopped, and without further available information the case went cold.

Anyone having any information related to Mary Perkins’ death is asked to contact the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office at 904.630.0500 or email us at To remain anonymous and be eligible for a cash reward please call First Coast Crime Stoppers at 1.866.845.TIPS or text **8477.
