“When the November election is held every year, it’s inevitable that we all say to ourselves, ‘Are these the best two people we can get in this race? politics because stupid things in their background will happen that they have no control over and they don’t want to deal with it, ”he writes. “I realize that when you run for an office as high as District Attorney’s office, you will be examined with a magnifying glass and even a microscope. That’s what it is.”
Peruto wrote that he had been dating a woman for about a month and a half in 2013 and “didn’t really know her” when she was found in the bathtub at his home while out of town.
He cited the medical examiner’s report as an explanation that the woman’s blood alcohol level was 0.45.
“The cause of death was alcohol poisoning, but since it was found in my tub, everyone, including me, assumed she had drowned,” he wrote. “So many empty vodka bottles were found, it looked like there was a party in my house, but security video inspection of people entering and leaving only showed it.”

He said he learned of his death the next morning and that his cell phone “pings” shows he was in Avalon, NJ at the time, he noted.
“The day before, I was texting him, which the pings also corroborated. I was with several people who all made statements or testified, ”he wrote. “When I got to Philadelphia, I gave a full and complete statement to the homicide detectives, and I voluntarily returned my phone so they could perform what is called a ‘phone dump.’ This means that they can extract anything from the phone, including what was erased. “
He said he was not the woman’s boyfriend, “but it was my apartment where she had expired”, and attributed the publicity the case had to a “bitter enemy”, who was then the public prosecutor.
