Nobelesville based attorney, Rebecca Eimerman was pursuing unpaid settlement money from Perillo’s boyfriend, Dr. Arnaldo Trabucco of Fort Mohave, Arizona, on behalf of his ex-wife.
By a stroke of fortune Eimerman’s husband got into his wife’s Chevrolet Suburban first on the morning of May 15, 2015 to back it out of the driveway, when he saw the Perillos in the back of the SUV and called the police.
The arrest affidavit states that the duo were still in their SUV when police arrived and claimed to be homeless, but the police search yielded a handgun along with a lethal dose of anesthesia called succinylcholine.
Other unsettling implements for the scheme including a saw, a shovel with dirt on it, latex gloves, duct tape, a hammer, a tranquilizer gun, a machete, a blond wig and a silicone mask depicting an elderly man’s face, were found in the vehicle the Perillo’s parked near Eimerman’s home, according to the court documents.
The ‘Team’ were also in possession of several identification and credit cards belonging to Eimerman, who said she had left her wallet in the SUV, according to police sources.

Indiana authorities continued their investigations while the duo were on the run.
Eimerman had recognized Renee Perillo as the woman who was dating a client’s ex-husband and told authorities she feared for her life.
Investigators also discovered that Richard Perillo had bragged to two inmates in the Hamilton County Jail that he had traveled to Noblesville to kill a local attorney, after the two were booked in the Hamilton County Jail, the Indianapolis Star reports.

When police found the Perillo’s car it contained a shovel, latex gloves, duct tape, a hammer, a tranquilizer gun, a machete, a blond wig and a silicone mask of an elderly man’s face.
Police searched Renee Perillo’s phone and found multiple Google searches of Eimerman and her home, the affidavit said. The phone contained photos of Eimerman’s home and her SUV.
‘This devious plot to murder and kidnap a victim is beyond any logical comprehension,’ United States Attorney Josh Minkler said in a statement. ‘Ms. Perillo will have many, many years in the Department of Corrections to think about her actions.’
During the course of their investigation, U.S. attorneys determined there was a second intended victim, according to federal court documents. Before initially coming to Noblesville, the Perillos had traveled to Nebraska and dug a grave, according to federal documents, but could not find the intended victim, whom federal officials declined to identify.
