A woman confesses to murder of Perrin man

A woman turned herself in to the Hood County Sheriff’s Office Tuesday for a murder in Perrin in earlier that day.

According to Hood County Sheriff’s Lt. Johnny Rose, Jaylynn Fayann Caffey, 25, of Perrin, came into the Hood County Law Enforcement Center and confessed to one of its jailers.

Jack County Sheriff’s Office was notified of the crime by Hood County when Caffey turned herself in. Sheriff Tom Spurlock said 79-year-old Glenn Plumlee of W. Turner St. was found dead at his residence. 

Jack County Cmdr. Doug Angell and Lt. Michael Francis interviewed the woman during the night in Hood County.

“She was staying at a local motel and the Granbury PD went out and checked that motel room,” Rose said. “Not sure what they found out there.”

Spurlock said the murder is still in the process of being investigated, and the cause of death has not been confirmed. 

“We don’t know yet. We haven’t done an autopsy yet,” he said. “There are suspicions, but with it still being investigated and not having an autopsy yet, I can’t say.”

He said an autopsy was to take place Thursday.

Spurlock was also unsure of Caffey’s connection to Plumlee.

“We don’t know what all that is going to entail,” he said.

As of Wednesday morning, Caffey was being held in Hood County Jail for murder with a bond of $150,000. If she does not bond out, she will be transported to the Jack County jail within 10 days of her arrest.

Correction: The article previously had W. Perrin St. as the location of Glenn Plumlee's residence. The correct street is W. Turner.
