why are perry and dick being held separately?

This would be so they can't corroborate their stories before questioning.
Also after several hours, the detectives come forth with the real reason for the questioning: that Perry and Dick are wanted for quadruple homicide, an accusation which catches both men off guard (Dick more so than Perry). They are relegated to jail cells at opposite ends of the building.Each man had to stick to his own story.
