Suspected serial killer charged with another murder in Missouri

KANSAS CITY, Mo.–A alleged serial killer is now charged with another murder in the Kansas City area.

Perez Reed, who is from St. Louis, was charged in November 2021 fatal shooting of Stephon Johnsonwho was found dead in a midtown Kansas City apartment, prosecutors say.

The 26-year-old has been charged with first-degree murder, armed felonies and two counts of fraudulently using a credit/debit device.

According to court documents, Johnson’s family filed missing persons reports saying they had not spoken to him since November 1, 2021. When officers went to his home at Brush Creek Towers, they found Johnson’s body in a closet, court documents say. Officers determined that he had suffered a gunshot to the back of the head.

Officers also collected an empty cigarillo pack, court documents say, and a DNA test from that pack was later traced to Reed’s DNA.

Reed was arrested on November 8, 2021 by an FBI task force in Independence on St. Louis County warrants. Officials found a key in Reed’s possession at the time, and prosecutors say it matched a deadbolt lock in Johnson’s apartment.

Witnesses also told police the St. Louis “serial killer” they saw on the news was the same man with a crescent moon tattoo who had been a guest at Johnson’s.

Court records also state that the bullet found in Johnson’s home came from the same firearm that was in Reed’s possession when he was arrested.
