NewsChannel 5 Exclusive: Perry March’s Father Talks About His Son’s Arrest

Originally Published: August 9, 2005

Perry March was arrested in Mexico last week and charged with killing his wife, Janet, who disappeared almost nine years ago. For the past several years, Perry March's children, Samson and Tzipora, have been living with Perry, his new wife, Carmen, and Perry's father, Arthur, in Ajijic, Mexico.

NewsChannel 5's Nick Beres went to Ajijic and spoke to Arthur, who said the March family was living happily in Mexico until the FBI arrived last week.

"The next thing I know they kidnap my son. To say the least, I'm pissed," Arthur said.

In an exclusive on-camera interview with NewsChannel 5, Arthur said U.S. and Mexican authorities conspired to abduct Perry. He said he believes they did so at the urging of Janet March's parents, Lawrence and Carolyn Levine.

"They kidnapped my kid. First they kidnapped my grandchildren, and the federal court admitted to it, and we got the kids back. The next thing I know, they kidnapped my son," Arthur said.

Perry March was arrested last week on a busy road in Ajijic and deported to the United States. Samson and Tzipora have been placed, at least temporarily, in the custody of their uncle, Ron March, who lives near Chicago.

But Carmen March, Perry's wife, said the children could soon be moved to a more secret location. She said ultimately, she wants them back in Mexico.

Tzipora is 11 years old, and Samson will turn 15 later this month. Arthur March said the children now consider Ajijic their home.

"The kids are doing fine, they've never been so happy in their life. They're bilingual, they're the top students at the school," Arthur said.

Arthur March and Perry's wife, Carmen, have filed formal complaints with Mexican immigration officials, arguing that Perry was illegally deported.

Perry March is expected to be brought back to Nashville later this week.
