Suspected killer Michael Perry was caught dangling from a skyscraper by his underwear

A suspected killer who tried to jump from a 12th-floor apartment to escape police was caught when his underwear got caught on the window handle.

Boston police said Michael Perry, 37, was charged with murder on Friday after he tried to flee an apartment with a body found inside earlier this week, only to find himself hanging upside down a dozen stories above the street.

Authorities identified the dead man as 43-year-old Jose Aponte and said it was Aponte’s Roxbury home that Perry attempted to jump from.

Police discovered the body during a health check Sunday night after someone texted Aponte’s boss who had called in sick, but in a style that didn’t fit Aponte’s usual writing, NBC Boston reported.

“When police got there, they found the deceased occupant of the apartment in the apartment with significant evidence of physical trauma,” prosecutors said during Perry’s arraignment. “Mr. Perry was further back in the apartment. He had moved things to cover himself. They called out to him, asked if he had any guns and his reply was, ‘Come find out.'”

A SWAT team responded to the scene and Perry attempted to escape by jumping out the window, but instead he was dangling precariously from his underwear.

Police opened the window to hold his legs while other officers went to the 11th floor, where they dragged Perry through a window below.

He has since been charged with assault with a dangerous weapon in connection with his clash with police and murder resulting in Aponte’s death.

It was reportedly not the first time Perry had found himself in such a situation.

In 2017, he was reportedly arrested by a SWAT team after assaulting another man at a Boston hotel and then attempted to escape police by jumping out of a window onto an awning below.

Authorities have not yet commented on Aponte’s cause of death or Perry’s relationship with his alleged victim.
