Some fans have suggested that Perry’s book might have angered some of his enemies or rivals, who decided to take revenge on him by killing him. They have also pointed out some suspicious details about his death, such as the lack of witnesses, the delay in reporting it, and the absence of an autopsy report.

However, these theories have not been verified by Hindustan Times, and are not backed by any credible evidence. They are based on netizens' speculation and assumptions, and they disrespect Perry’s memory and legacy.

However, this has not been confirmed by the authorities or his representatives. Some insiders have also claimed that there was no sign of foul play or drug overdose, which Perry had struggled with in the past.
