A rural Linwood man who allegedly shot his girlfriend reportedly told a witness, “I hit what I shoot at.”

A rural Linwood man who allegedly shot his girlfriend reportedly told a witness, “I hit what I shoot at.”

That is according to a probable cause affidavit that has been unsealed in the case of Dan S. Flannagan.

Flannagan, 63, is charged in Leavenworth County District Court with the intentional second-degree murder in connection to the shooting death of Constance Perryman.

Perryman's body was found April 6 on property located off of 198th Street south of Linwood. Flannagan was Perryman's live-in boyfriend.

The probable cause affidavit provides details about what is alleged to have occurred at the time of the shooting and the subsequent investigation by the Leavenworth County Sheriff's Office.

The affidavit was prepared in support of the criminal charge. The document was written by Detective Dan Abramovitz of the Leavenworth County Sheriff's Office.

The affidavit initially was sealed, but a judge ordered the release of a redacted copy of the document on Friday.

According to the affidavit, Flannagan reported to the Sheriff's Office on April 5 that Perryman was missing. He told a deputy that she had walked away from their residence April 3.

The missing person's report was taken late at night. Two deputies returned to the property the next morning.

They obtained permission to search the property from another man who was living on the property in a camper with a girlfriend.

During their search, the deputies found Perryman's body near the Kansas River. The body was turned over to Frontier Forensics for autopsy services, and it was determined Perryman had been shot.

Abramovitz interviewed the two people who were living in the camper on the property.

One of the witnesses reported that he was in his camper on the evening of April 3 when he heard a gunshot. He heard two more gunshots about five minutes later, according to the affidavit.

The witness went outside and reportedly heard Flannagan screaming at Perryman. The witness told Abramovitz that Flannagan sounded “demonic” and screamed, “I will kill you.”

The witness reported seeing Perryman seated on a piece of equipment near a barn.

The witness went back inside. He went outside again after hearing another shot.

The witness reported seeing Flannagan leaning against an old tractor. Flannagan reportedly walked toward the area where Perryman previously had been seated and said, “Get up,” according to the affidavit.

The witness indicated he was afraid and went back inside the camper.

The witness later walked to a garage on the property. While walking, he saw an empty .410 caliber shell casing and a flannel shirt in a driveway near the old tractor.

Once in the garage, the witness saw Flannagan. The witness asked Flannagan if the issue with Perryman had been resolved.

Flannagan reportedly said, “I hit what I shoot at.”

The next morning, the witness walked by the area where he had seen the empty shell casing and shirt, but the items were gone, according to the affidavit.

During a search of this area, authorities found a large amount of blood, a flashlight and a cellphone. Investigators believe Perryman was killed at this location, and her body later was moved to where it was found by deputies.

When interviewed, Flannagan reportedly said he and Perryman had been arguing. Flannagan told authorities he became enraged and he had no memory of what happened before the morning of April 4.

Flannagan reportedly said this was the first time he had become enraged in 30 years. He was asked if the experience of the last time he had been in a rage was the same as the recent incident. Flannagan reportedly said he had not killed anyone the last time he was in a rage, according to the affidavit.

Flannagan is next scheduled to appear in court Wednesday.
