Amanda Perrault Wiki – Amanda Perrault Biography
When Amanda Perrault, 44, died of a gunshot wound to the head, her husband Seth Perrault, an officer with the Eatonton, Georgia Police Department, told investigators that she had committed suicide. But when the Putnam County sheriff saw the way her body lay on the couple’s bed, he says he didn’t see suicide, he saw murder.
Amanda Johnson, recently divorced, met Seth Perrault online. At the time, Perrault was battling cancer and living with his parents, who paid his bills. The couple quickly fell in love and within six months, Johnson moved in with Perrault and became her caretaker. In 2017, Seth’s cancer went into remission.
As Perrault and Johnson have grown closer, two of Amanda’s sisters claim they have lost contact with her. “She didn’t come to any of our Christmas events or any of our events because she had to host her family and cook for all of them,” Alesha Johnson told “48 Hours.”
Angie Johnson also claims that, for years, Perrault did not allow Amanda to get a job or, at times, not have a cell phone of her own. They say that she controlled and mistreated her sister. After five years together, Seth Perrault and Amanda Johnson were quietly married in the local courthouse, with only their children in attendance.
Alesha and Angie Johnson believe that Seth only asked his sister to marry him because she wanted custody of his daughter from a previous relationship. For more than a year, Seth had been in a custody dispute with the girl’s mother, and as his attorney told “48 Hours” contributor Anne-Marie Green, “if Amanda was going to be present at the daughter’s life… they had to get married.”

Amanda Perrault cause of death
A few months after the couple married, Seth was granted full custody of his daughter. In 2018, Seth Perrault’s father bought his son a beautiful home near Lake Oconee in Eatonton, Georgia. Alesha Johnson told “48 Hours” that Amanda loved her new home and being a stepmom to Seth’s daughter, but her marriage was becoming increasingly contentious.
About a year after moving into her new home, the Eatonton Police Department hired Seth Perrault. He had previously applied to the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office, but was turned down for lack of experience.
Amanda Perrault called 911 from a neighbor’s home and told a Putnam County Sheriff’s dispatcher that her husband, an Eatonton Police Department officer, had assaulted her. Agents responded to the call and saw red marks on Amanda’s chest.
Seth Perrault’s 8-year-old daughter witnessed the incident and she told officers that she heard the couple arguing and she saw her father push Amanda out the door. She also said that she was afraid and hid in her closet, but her father ordered her out of it. Officers later arrested Seth Perrault and charged him with simple battery, family violence and third degree cruelty to children. That night, Amanda Perrault called her sister, Angie Johnson, and asked her to pick her up in the morning.
The day after Seth Perrault’s arrest, Amanda Perrault told her sister Angie not to come pick her up. Instead, she decided to attend Seth’s bail hearing. When the judge asked Amanda if she wanted a restraining order added to Seth’s bail conditions, she said no. Seth was then released on $1,500 bail and was allowed to return home by Amanda.Read More….
