MERIDEN, Conn. (WTNH)  — Police have identified the remains found in Waterbury on Wednesday night as missing 31-year-old Meriden woman, Perrie Mason.

Officials made the announcement during a news conference Friday afternoon.

Her cause of death has yet to be determined.

Mason, who recently moved to Connecticut from Hawaii with her two children, was reported missing by her fiancé, 38-year-old Jason Watson. Court documents state he told officers Perrie was mad at him and might be at a friend’s house.

Perrie’s sister, who lives in Georgia, said the pair had recently broken up over a heated argument. She said the couple got into a fight on August 15.

She told officials that Perrie bit Watson and he “choked her unconscious.”

Watson has been in jail for domestic violence charges including strangulation and assault. He is being held under a $500,000 bond.

He is considered the prime suspect in the case but has not been officially charged.

A vigil was held for Perrie in front of her business, Lavish Lashes, on East Main Street in Meriden Saturday evening.
