Nashville cops find naked man, feces-covered walls inside burglarized home

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A man living at a home in Hillsboro-West End returned after several days to find a naked man inside, the walls covered in feces and rotting food all over the floor, a police report states.

Metro Nashville Police were called to a reported burglary Tuesday afternoon at a residence on Essex Place off Interstate 440 just south of Vanderbilt University.

Officers found the back door of the home open, and inside they located a naked man, identified as 38-year-old Carl Perry, who was taken into custody.

Officers observed “fecal matter” on all of the walls and trash thrown everywhere, according to the warrant. The paperwork states there was food rotting on the floor and the microwave above the stove was completely melted and had fallen off the wall.

An arrest warrant states a resident of the home and his roommates were gone for nine days. When the resident returned, he said he found the home in disarray, with every piece of furniture in every room “damaged beyond repair.”

Perry was arrested and booked into the Metro jail Tuesday afternoon on charges of aggravated burglary and vandalism.
