Seth Redell was initially let out on a $500,000 bond and faces mandatory life in prison if convicted.

It’s been two years now, and we learned today that a Jefferson Parish grand jury has indicted him on a charge of second-degree murder for the killing of Piper Perri’s 2-year-old son in 2016.

This is the first step in the processor Seth Redell. Grand Juries are not what you think

His case is now set to be heard by Judge Scott Schlegel in 24th Judicial District Court in Gretna, Louisiana. Seth, again, he faces mandatory life in prison if convicted.

I’ve been trying to stay on top of this story but it’s not easy. There isn’t a lot of information available about the case, and the legal process so far has been very slow going. The one odd thing that struck me as odd was that the father of the baby was not mentioned in the baby’s obituary.

It is rather dubious how the media took a swipe at the child’s biological father is not mentioned

The obituary acknowledged the baby’s mother, her parents, and the baby’s father’s parents, and grandparents, but not him.

Here is a picture of the baby’s father and mother from May of 2015.

They broke up after the baby was born, and it was then that Piper Perri got with Seth Redell, the man who would end up killing her baby.

When her son died, Piper Perri had his organs donated.  As such organs keep her boy living. “His heart went to a little girl under the age of 5 in Arizona, his liver went to a little boy under the age of 5 in New York, and both of his kidneys went to a man in his 40’s in Pennsylvania.”

Piper Perri

To my knowledge, she has not publicly spoken about the trial, her ex-boyfriend or the death of her son.

The only other thing we know about Seth Redell is that he has prior arrests for possession of marijuana along with aggravated robbery in 2007 in Ohio. That may possibly effect his sentencing if he is found guilty of the child’s death once he finally goes to trial.

We’ll keep you updated on information about this case as information becomes available.

  1. Assuming he is the killer I am glad he is charged with Piper’s son’s murder but this has to be hell on Piper. Two years after her son’s death is a long time to wait for charging someone for his murder. If it were me this would be like tearing open a large, half-healed wound with a pair of pliers — in this case sending Piper back into the depths of mourning. I hope that Seth is convicted (assuming he actually did it), sentenced to life at Angola (Louisiana’s men’s prison), forced to tend to Angola’s crops every day (Angola is the last prison in the US where inmates are forced to grow their own food) and tortured every night. Unfortunately for Piper and her family Angola is a pretty light prison as far as inmate on inmate torture is concerned (so he might actually maintain his ass virginity there) but that is what the Louisiana penal system has to work with. The arraignment and trial process has to be utter hell on Piper, though. With mandatory life there is little chance Seth will plead out and spare her testifying at and having to watch his trial. I hope she is strong enough to survive it.

    RIP Piper’s son.

  2. Hopefully Piper’s baby’s killer is now spending life in Angola tending to crops by hand and maybe even getting tortured. Who can kill a little baby — I sure can’t do it nor would I want to. What has this world come to?

    If someone could update us on the result of the trial we would appreciate it.

  3. Sadly no update on this case yet. I asked a friend of mine why and he said that cases like this may not go to trial for another year.

  4. Add the variables of coronavirus, social distancing and shelter in place and the court system gotta be super backed up right now.

  5. Very sad, though the child should have had his mother to watch over him and not some dude. Also, she looked pretty horrific without makeup. That 2015 photo is shocking.

  6. Scumbag.It would be a miracle his fellow inmates don’t find out he’s a child killer.Most inmates hate that kind of criminal along with pedophiles.It wouldn’t be a shame if he had an “accident”that they couldn’t solve.An eye for an eye after all.
