Update On The Killing Of Sean Stevenson At Missoula’s Homeless Shelter

by William Skink

It’s been over two months since Sean Stevenson died from a physical altercation at the Poverello Center in Missoula.

Today it’s being reported that the case is now in the hands of the County Attorney’s office:

Law enforcement has turned a death investigation from an incident at the Poverello Center in January over to the Missoula County Attorney’s Office for review, police authorities said Wednesday.

Sean Stevenson, 45, died days after an apparent fight at the Poverello Center on Jan. 3. Johnny Lee Perry, 29, was initially arrested after the incident but was released without charges as law enforcement investigated his self-defense claim. Both had been staying at the shelter.

On Wednesday, Missoula Police Sgt. Travis Welsh said the investigation had been turned over to the County Attorney’s Office for review.

This case continues to baffle me, especially when you look at how Stevenson’s VIOLENT DEATH was treated by authorities compared to the alleged VERBAL THREATS Brandon Bryant made on his vlog.

The assailant who “defended himself” until Stevenson died, Johnny Lee Perry, has been in and out of jail several times since that fateful night at the end of December.

Meanwhile, Brandon Bryant continues sitting in jail, despite four City Council members calling for his release.

The Missoulian article ends with this:

The Missoula County Attorney’s chief criminal prosecutor, Matt Jennings, was not immediately available for comment.

I guess Jennings was too busy figuring out how to prosecute his political prisoner to talk to the media about the likelihood of charges being filed in this “death investigation”.
