She attended Bismarck Junior College for a year
before she married .
In Aug of 1974 she married Bruce Perry.
Her grandparents were
Abel Dykema 1903-1993 & Wilmina Millenaar 1903-1998
|Arlis' grandmother Wilmina Millenaar|
Garritt Van Beek 1904-1976 & Virginia Wolf 1905-1992
All of whom were born and died in North Dakota. Deep roots here.
Arlis was raised a Christain.
After Bruce and Arlis were married they moved to California to finish schooling at Standford.
Unfortunately one evening they got into a spat about the air pressure in one of the car tires. That would be the last time the two newlyweds would ever see each alive.
Arlis went to the chapel on the campus to pray and she was brutally murdered.

Now the rest might be a theory, to some but it's really not.
We have had Devil Worshipers in the Bismarck area for a long time. The caves that were out by the University of Mary were closed by authorities placing dynamite in them and blowing them up.
It is said there were altars for sacrificing and occult writings on the walls.
I remember when I was a teenager and on a Halloween night we drove through Hillside Cemetery and the Occult Worshipers were there and attacked our car. We were scared and got the heck out of there.
Arlis' murder is I believe connected to The Son of Sam. I think she tried to convert some young followers of this Occult and it pissed someone off.
This poor girl must have been frightened out of her wits and what they did to her was beyond cruel and morbid.
I am not going to write all the gory details, you can read about them in books, newspapers, and the internet.
I am doing this out of respect for her and her family.
I have read almost every article and book I can get my hands on about this case. I will say the best is a book called The Ultimate Evil the truth about the cult murders: Son of Sam & Beyond by Maury Terry.
He did an outstanding job investigating information and talking directly to David Berkowitz, who by the way told him of all the connection in North Dakota including the Carr family. (I will do a separate blog on them).
As far as I am concerned the police in North Dakota and California need to step up and do their jobs. If a private investigator and an author can dig up stuff and lead them in a direction, they should maybe head down that road.
It's utterly ridiculous that David Berkowitz has been the only person arrested when most of the Nation knows he was not alone in this. The dead and their families deserve Justice!!
Arlis Rest In Peace the truth will come
