Just days after Amanda Perrault made allegations of abuse against her husband, Eatonton, Ga., police officer Seth Perrault, he reported that she took her life by shooting herself. Immediately, investigators weren’t buying Perrault’s story. Based in part on the crime scene, including the position of her body in the couple’s bed, and allegations of abuse, the sheriff got a warrant for Perrault’s arrest and took him into custody. But when the autopsy report was released by the medical examiner, declaring Amanda’s death a suicide, Perrault’s lawyer said it would prove he was innocent. But would a jury agree? 48 HOURS contributor Anne-Marie Green reports on the events leading up to what happened the day Perrault reported his wife died in “The Death of an Officer’s Wife,” to be broadcast Saturday, Jan. 28 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network and streaming on Paramount+.
“I believe Seth Perrault was an individual that had a lot of people fooled,” District Attorney Wright Barksdale said. “I think he hid behind a badge and wore a mask every day. Nice house, nice car, law enforcement. But behind that door to that house, he was pretty abusive.”
