Brother says dad accused of shooting kids in Coldspring was 'a man of his word'

A 54-year-old father was behind bars in San Jacinto County Tuesday after investigators say he shot his two children, killing his 10-year-old son.

On Monday, Pedrag Perisic finally went through with a threat he’d been making for some time, his identical twin brother said.

“My brother was a man of his word,” said Nenad Perisic.

Pedrag Perisic is accused of shooting his children, who were at the center of a bitter custody battle with his ex-wife. Nenad Perisic said his brother wanted to reconcile.

The couple met in Canada.

“He told her a couple of months ago, ‘if you don’t get together, you know what I’m going to do the kids, they can go over my dead body to Montreal.’ He didn’t want to let the kids go back to Montreal,” Nenad Perisic said.

According to an attorney representing the children’s mother, 12-year-old Danyela Perisic and 10-year-old Deyan Perisic were reported missing on Oct. 26 after their father failed to return them from a custody visit.

For the last six weeks, the attorney said the mother tried to get her ex-husband to return the children, to no avail.

Meanwhile, Perisic was staying with the children at a friend’s house in Coldspring.

On Monday, law enforcement officers from the San Jacinto County Sheriff’s Department, the Texas Attorney General’s Office and other agencies served a custody warrant at the home. Deputies made their way to the second floor after entering the home, but as they searched, they heard gunshots coming from the back of the house.

Deputies found Danyela and Deyan shot and arrested their father.

Danyela was airlifted to Memorial Hermann Hospital, where she remained Tuesday in stable condition.

Deyan was rushed to the emergency room in Livingston, where he was pronounced dead.


“My heart is bleeding,” said Nenad Perisic. “It’s a tragic story and I don’t wish that (anybody) experiences that.”

The children moved from Canada last year and lived with their parents and their uncle in La Porte.

'System failed in many ways,' lawyer says‎

Jurisdictional concerns in a child-custody case won out over the best interests of two Montreal children, one of whom was shot to death and the other shot and seriously wounded Monday in Texas, a lawyer for the children’s mother said.

“The system failed in many ways,” said Montreal lawyer Jonathan Shulak, who is representing Vera Vucerakovich, the Montreal mother of two who was in a protracted custody battle with her husband before Monday’s shooting near Houston.

Deyan Perisic, 10, was shot to death and his sister Danyela Perisic, 12, was shot repeatedly in her arms and legs before police arrested their father, Predrag Perisic, 55. He is now in prison facing several charges, including murder and attempted murder.

Girl shot 8 times trying to protect brother: Lawyer‎

A 12-year-old Montreal girl was riddled with bullets as she tried in vain to shield her younger brother from an attack that killed the boy and led to their father’s arrest on murder charges in Texas.

Danyela Perisic somehow survived the shooting north of Houston on Monday, but her brother, 10-year-old Deyan Perisic, was pronounced dead in hospital. Predrag Perisic, 54, faces a murder charge after the cross-border custody battle ended in violence in the town of Coldspring.

The mother’s defense lawyer, Jonathan Shulak, said the girl has had two surgeries.

“I don't know (her) exact condition,” he told QMI Agency on Wednesday. “I know that apparently, he shot his daughter eight times. She was trying to protect her brother.”

Legal system blamed after Montreal children shot in Texas‎

A day after news surfaced that two children were shot, one fatally, in Texas, the lawyer of their Montreal mother aimed his derision at the legal system.

“The system failed in many ways,” Jonathan Shulak said Wednesday, arguing the jurisdictional wranglings of an international child custody case took precedence over the best interests of the two Montreal youngsters.

Deyan Perisic, 10, was killed Monday after being shot at a residence just outside of Houston. His sister Danyela, 12, was severely wounded when grazed by as many as eight bullets. The children’s father, 55-year-old Pedrag Perisic, is facing charges of murder and attempted murder.

Their mother, Vera Vucerakovich, flew to Houston Tuesday.

Reached at the hospital where her daughter came out of a second surgery Wednesday, Vucerakovich, 46, said she had been emotionally and physically abused by her husband during different points in their marriage. “But I didn’t ever think he would take out his anger against me and my family on the children.”

Cleric is haunted by last talk with father‎
'I tried to persuade him not to do anything,' priest says after hearing threat

The last person who spoke to Predrag Perisic before he allegedly shot both his children -one of them fatally -is haunted by the conversation.

Zivorad Subotic, a priest at Holy Trinity Serbian Orthodox Church in Westmount, received a call from Perisic on Sunday.

"He asked me to call his wife and tell her that if she does not drop the (child abduction) charge against him, he will kill his children and himself," a still-shaken Subotic, 59, recounted yesterday. "It's very, very, very sad."

"I spoke with him for almost an hour," Subotic added.

"I tried to persuade him not to do anything. I told him he doesn't have the right to kill himself, first of all, and taking the lives of his children is out of the question"

The priest, who has known the family for 12 years and baptized both children, called the mother immediately at her home in St. Laurent and gave her the Texas number that had appeared on his caller ID display.

"I told her something was very wrong. I told her, 'Do something about your kids. Find them.' "

It wasn't until Monday evening, nearly 24 hours after Perisic spoke with the priest, that police in Coldspring, Tex., near Houston, located him and the children.

System didn't protect children: lawyer
Custody case turns violent St. Laurent woman whose youngsters were shot in Texas says danger ignored

MONTREAL - "The system failed in many ways," says the lawyer of a Montreal woman whose children were shot, allegedly by their father, Monday in Texas.

The jurisdictional wranglings of an international child custody case took precedence over the best interests of the two Montreal youngsters, Jonathan Shulak, a family law practitioner who represents Vera Vucerakovich, said yesterday.

The St. Laurent woman's son Deyan, 10, was killed. Her daughter, Danyela, 12, was severely wounded. Vucerakovich was in a custody battle with her husband of 11 years, Predrag Perisic -a Canadian citizen who has lived in Texas since 2007. The couple had been in the process of getting a divorce.

The family's case highlights problems with the Hague Convention, an international treaty governing private and family legal matters that kicks in to resolve cross-boundary cases, Shulak said.

"One of the major problems is that judges are under pressure to return the children to the other country, so Canada is seen as a good participant of the treaty," he said.

The biggest concern seems to be where custody hearings take place, rather than the best interests of the child, he added.

Quebec Superior Court Judge Marie-Christine Laberge granted Vucerakovich full temporary custody of her two children in late October. On Oct. 26, they disappeared in Texas with their father.

Laberge's decision reversed Quebec Superior Court Judge Helene Le Bel's verdict on April 16 that the children be sent to Texas, where their father resided, and custody hearings be held there because the children's most recent place of residence was in Texas, Shulak said.

Perisic failed to meet certain obligations in Texas with regard to the April decision, Shulak said. That is why Vucerakovich was able to obtain custody again in October.

"They lived in Texas for only a total of 137 days," Shulak said, from August 2009 to Jan. 1. The children were born and raised in Montreal.

Family law expert Sylvie Schirm said the judge who ordered the children back to Texas could have kept them in the province using the Hague Convention' provisions for grave risk, criteria she believes were established by the children's testimony that they feared a return to Texas.

Quebec Justice Department and Public Security Department officials referred questions to the Surete du Quebec, which said handling of child custody orders of the court was up to the police department where the parties resided.

Montreal police Constable Daniel Lacoursiere was tight-lipped about the case, but said police in Texas were the lead investigators because Perisic was living in Texas when Quebec courts ordered him to hand the children over to his wife.

Judges should listen carefully to those who claim their safety is at risk, Vucerakovich said. Her two children testified "eloquently and clearly" about their fears to the judge in Quebec, she added.

Vucerakovich said she tried to get officials and police in Texas to understand how critical the situation was. "I was there Oct. 28 to Nov. 24, putting posters up and looking for my children. The danger was not taken seriously."

Girl allegedly shot by father recovering in hospital



A 12-year-old girl Montreal girl, allegedly shot eight times by her father, has woken up in hospital and asked about her brother.

Danyela Perisic's mother has yet to tell her daughter that ten-year-old Deyan was shot and killed.

Her cousin, Vicky Pololos, says Danyela has had extensive surgery to rebuild her shattered right arm, but will be scarred for life.

Vicky said that Danyela's first words were "'Where's Deyan? Where's my brother?' and she doesn't know yet, and she doesn't know yet that he's passed."

The children's father, Predrag Perisic, is now in custody in Texas, accused of killing his ten-year-old son and of shooting Danyela eight times.

Before moving to Texas, Perisic lived in St. Laurent with his children and their mother Vera Vucerakovich.

Bitter divorce battle

The couple is involved in what is by all accounts a bitter divorce and custody battle.

Relatives on all sides say Vucerakovich and Perisic had frequently been violent and threatening with each other.

Jovanka Vucerakovich, grandmother of the shooting victims, says she saw Perisic attack her daughter.

"I saw he touch her like that, he say now I kill you, so she say don't kill me stupid I'm pregnant with your son three months now," said Jovanka Vucerakovich

Perisic's relatives in Texas say that many times Vucerakovich was just as threatening.

Family lived in St. Laurent

Perisic and Vucerakovich lived in St. Laurent for many years, until the family moved to La Porte, Texas in 2009.

Vucerakovich and the children returned to Montreal in January 2010, but a Quebec judge soon ordered the children to return to Texas.

"Canadian kids. Canadian-born, Canadian-raised. They lived in Texas for 108 days," said Pololos.

In October, Quebec Superior Court ruled the children should return to Canada to stay with their mother.

That's when Perisic apparently pulled Deyan and Danyela out of their Texas school and went into hiding.

On Monday authorities in Texas learned Perisic was in a home in Coldspring, and when they entered the home they heard gunfire.

Police found Deyan's body, Danyela suffering from multiple gunshots, and their father.

Perisic has been charged with murder.

Meanwhile, children at Gardenview Elementary who knew Deyan and Danyela are in shock.

Trauma counsellor Lori Rubin says children are coping the best they can.

"We're trying to make some sense of this in a case where there is no sense to be made," said Rubin.

Predrag Perisic has been arraigned on a charge of murder in Texas, a state that has the death penalty for some convicted murderers.

The 55-year-old Canadian citizen, who lived for years until 2007 with his wife and children in St. Laurent, was arrested Monday in Coldspring, Tex., after police found his son Deyan Perisic, 10, fatally wounded and his daughter Danyela, 12, severely injured.

Perisic is being detained on a $1 million bond, San Jacinto County Sheriff James Walters said yesterday. Besides paying the bond, Perisic would have to surrender his passport if he wanted to leave custody.

There is no death penalty in Canada, and the federal government has traditionally fought to have Canadians accused of murder exempted from the death penalty.

But the Conservative government announced in 2007 that Canada would no longer ask for clemency from execution for its citizens on death row in democratic countries like the United States.

The current charge against Perisic is murder, a count not punishable by the death penalty in Texas, San Jacinto County acting district attorney Jonathan Petix told The Gazette yesterday. But the investigation is continuing and the charge may be changed to capital murder, which is punishable by death in Texas.

A charge of attempted murder is also likely, as are charges of aggravated assault with a weapon and injury to a child, he added. A grand jury is to convene next month to indict Perisic, he said.

Jonathan Shulak, the Montreal lawyer for Perisic's estranged wife, Vera Vucerakovich, noted that Perisic's priest in Westmount said he got a call the day before the shooting from Perisic, in which Perisic threatened to kill his children and himself.

"I hope he gets capital punishment," Shulak said.

"I say he deserves it."

Children gather to mourn Montreal boy slain in Texas

MONTREAL — As Grade 5 and 6 students at a Montreal elementary school sombrely released balloons into the sky Monday in honour of Deyan Perisic — their former classmate who police say was killed by his father in Texas last week — family members took solace in the brief but poignant schoolyard ceremony.

But cousins of the slain boy said the event at Gardenview Elementary brought no closure to grieving relatives who painted a picture of a family that had been terrorized by Deyan’s father, Predrag Perisic.

Perisic has been charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of Deyan, who was found dead in a Coldspring, Texas, home along with his injured sister, Danyela.

The 55-year-old man is being detained in Texas on a $1 million bond.

Deyan, 10, and Danyela, 12, attended Gardenview until April, when they were pulled out and ordered to leave for Texas immediately to live with their father.

Danyela is under police protection in a Houston hospital, said Vicky Pololos, the children’s cousin. “There are two Texas Rangers there at all times.”

Perisic, a Canadian who has lived in Texas since 2007, and his wife, Vera Vucerakovich, 46, a Montrealer, were in the process of divorcing.

Their two children were born and raised in Montreal, and the couple had been in a heated cross-border custody battle since April.

As volatile as the couple’s legal battle was, Melissa Pololos, another cousin, said she never thought it would end in murder.

“We (thought) the kids were in danger, but not to this extent,” she said following the school ceremony.

Vicky Pololos said it was a miracle Danyela survived after being shot eight times. “Her instinct was to curl up into a ball and that saved her.”

There was a palpable sense of sadness at Gardenview Monday, where a tribute was set up in the foyer read “in loving memory of Deyan Perisic.” With a teddy bear, soccer ball and notes from students, the tribute brought tears to Melissa Pololos’s eyes.

“I still can’t believe this has happened,” she said.

Family members say Danyela is doing much better, although she still needs surgery on her leg and arm. She and her mother plan to return to Montreal.

A funeral for Deyan is tentatively scheduled for next Wednesday in Montreal.

Tina Lavranos, principal of the school that Deyan attended from kindergarten to Grade 4, said Deyan and Danyela were “magnificent children.” She described them as bright, sociable and athletic.

Deyan had such a sweet disposition, she said, that he took a special-needs child under his wing in kindergarten and Grade 1 and offered to be his “helper.”

When news of Deyan’s death hit the school last week, the children were traumatized, Lavranos said.

“There was crying and people were shocked,” she said. The trauma team came to the school with 10 counsellors to talk to the children.

One boy at the school, whose mother didn’t want his name used, said he always had a great time playing soccer and hockey with Deyan.

He said they were good friends but Deyan had never really spoken of his father.

“He was always happy and smiling,” he said of his friend. “I will really miss him. I’m trying to focus on the good memories now.”

Funeral services for the boy will be held Thursday at a Greek Orthodox church in Montreal.

Mourners pay respects to Deyan Perisic‎

Friends and family gathered at the Aeterna Funeral home in north-central Montreal today to mourn for a 10-year-old innocent victim in the tangle of a custody battle.

They also came out to support Vera Vucerakovich, mother of Deyan Perisic, who police in Texas say was killed by his father, Predrag Perisic, 55, this month.

Perisic has been charged with murder in connection with Deyan's death, and faces an attempted murder charge for severely injuring his sister Danyela, 12.

"It's beyond belief and imagination, there's no words for it," said one woman, who declined to give her name, as she arrived at the funeral home late Wednesday afternoon.

Another man, who also asked for anonymity, said Vucerakovitch had been grieving all day, gathering strength for Thursday's funeral.

It is to be held at 10:30 a.m. at Evangelismos Tis Theotokou Greek Orthodox Church, on St. Roch St., in Park Extension.

Forgiveness urged at Deyan's funeral‎
10-year-old 'was always smiling'. Hundreds of mourners hold lit candles at multilingual service for St. Laurent boy

The sky outside was overcast, but inside hundreds of white candles illuminated Evangelismos Tis Theotokou Greek Orthodox Church in Park Extension yesterday.

Several hundred mourners, each holding a lit candle, came to say goodbye to Deyan Perisic, a 10-year-old St. Laurent boy shot to death in Texas on Dec. 13, allegedly by his father in a cross-border custody dispute.

Archbishop Sotirios, head of the Greek Orthodox Church in Canada, led the funeral service, some of which was conducted in Greek and Serbian.

"Do not cry for him; he is no longer in pain," Sotirios said of Deyan, whose body lay in an open coffin before the altar. "But everybody else is in pain -his mother, his sister, his father, his relatives, his friends, his classmates."

As many mourners held back tears, Sotirios urged those assembled to forgive.

"Healing begins when we start to forgive," he said.
