*Tyler Perry has joined the effort to solve a decade-old cold case in Florida in which two men went missing following separate encounters with a certain sheriff’s deputy.
The filmmaker is offering a $100,000 reward for information about Terrance Williams, 27, and Felipe Santos, 23. Both disappeared from Naples just three months apart in 2003, after separate run-ins with Collier County Sheriff’s Deputy Steven Calkins.
The men were never found, and this morning, Perry spoke at a local news conference, calling on the media to give appropriate attention to the story – even though both victims are minorities. He vowed to pay anyone who comes forward with information regarding the pair’s whereabouts, according to the Associated Press.
Longtime suspect Calkins, who is white, had been under investigation for his connection to both Williams and Santos, but he was never charged. He was fired from the force in 2004 after refusing to co-operate further with police officials.
