*NAPLES, Fla. — Nearly 15 years after the disappearance of Terrance Williams and Felipe Santos, prominent civil rights attorney Ben Crump will be joined by renowned actor and filmmaker Tyler Perry to announce an update stemming from the case.
Williams and Santos went missing within three months of each other under eerily similar circumstances. In both instances, then-Collier County Sheriff’s Deputy Steven Calkins arrested the men and placed them in his patrol car. Neither was ever seen again. Calkins never faced charges for the men’s disappearances, and their bodies have not been found.
In 2012, Perry lent his support after he heard about the cases by offering a reward for information involving the case. Since then, Perry has been dedicated to bringing national attention to the cases to get answers for Williams’ mother, Marcia Williams.
