SAN LUIS OBISPO - On July 1, 2020, the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office announced that Nicholas Christopher Ron, Jr., 23, of Paso Robles has been charged with the March 15, 2020 murder of Trevon Geary Montway Perry, 27, also of Paso Robles.
The victim was last seen in Paso Robles during the early morning hours of March 15, 2020. A missing person investigation quickly ensued which developed into a criminal investigation. The criminal investigation led to the discovery of Mr. Perry’s body at a residential location in Riverside County. Ron is accused of using a firearm to kill Perry.
Additionally, Vivianna Monique Rodriguez, 24, of Paso Robles has been arrested on suspicion of being an accessory after the fact to murder.
The months-long investigation was conducted by the Paso Robles Police Department with the assistance of:
- the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Bureau of Investigation,
- San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office,
- Riverside Police Department,
- Riverside County Sheriff’s Department,
- San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department
- and California Department of Justice.
“The District Attorney’s office praises the work of personnel from the Department of Justice labs in Richmond, Goleta, Watsonville and Riverside as being instrumental in gathering, handling and testing physical evidence,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona. “The work these public safety professionals do is a must for investigations. Detectives depend on their findings, as do attorneys, judges and juries.”
