Man, 26, Charged With Capital Murder in Killing of 'Blues Brothers' Actor Lou Perryman

A man who allegedly told police he stole a car and believed the owner was dead was charged with killing a Texas actor.

Austin police Friday identified the victim as 67-year-old Lou Perryman.

Perryman appeared in "The Blues Brothers," "Boys Don't Cry" and "When Zachary Beaver Came to Town."

Police charged 26-year-old Seth Christopher Tatum with capital murder, plus aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in another attack.

Sgt. Joseph Chacon says Tatum showed up at a jail facility Thursday and said he was "pretty sure" he had killed the owner of a vehicle he had stolen. Police later found Perryman's body at a home.

Investigators say they do not believe Tatum and Perryman knew each other.

A jail official didn't know whether Tatum had an attorney.
