    This case absolutely reminded me of the Jerry "Mike" Williams disappearance because the answer seems to be staring LE in the face but there is nothing they can (or will) do. As stated by a previous poster, I also found it very strange that LE couldn't seem to find any probable cause on which to base a search warrant. I'm certainly no expert in what qualifies as "probable cause" but it would seem to me that inconsistent statements, ommitted information, and a failed polygraph should more than fit the bill.
    When it was reported that the deputy in question attempted a background check on Mr. Williams, my first thought was that he was checking to see if anyone would miss the man when he didn't come home. I certainly hope that LE will continue to investigate this case and the deputy in question relentlessly. Needless to say, the families of both Mr. Santos and Mr. Williams deserve no less. As always, it's JMHO. Thanks for listening.

    Sure is alot of Does and Missing persons in Collier. Many near Golden Gate Estates and Immokalee Rd. Im going to have to listen to the show again (I recorded it) but I think GGE was mentioned.

    It gives me the chills thinking this, but if he was doing a background check on Terrance, as someone else mentioned, he could have been seeing if anyone would be missing him. What if there are more then 2 missing persons or does that came across the same deputy and these cases where the first to show a connection. Makes one wonder.

    Small world! I live in Dunedin now.

    I remember being 5--1982--and there was a cross burned on our neighbor's yard in Clearwater. Dunedin has become a model for diversity in the last 30 years or so. Still very predominantly white (and old), but I've lived here my whole life and can't remember one hate crime. There's just not a lot of crime in general, but any little thing makes the Dunedin Beacon blotter and more often than not it's mostly gas driveoffs.

    Of course that's not to say it doesn't exist--I'm sure there are pockets--but in the inner counties (and up in my husband's native MI) you'll see news stories about how they'll congregate in city parks and LE can't do much about it. You just don't see the organization here like you do in east Texas, LA, etc. Calkins could have been the Grand Master of his local Klan, but in Naples it's probably more a bunch of racists playing golf than protests and hoods and cross burnings.

    Now this is really interesting, http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/665uffl.html .
    I wonder who the deputy was that found her? Shortly after Terrance disappeared. Maybe they should search the area they found her in. This could be a diversion. Draw attention away from the deputy and have the dept focus on this doe found.

    I just saw the Disappeared episode on these missing men.

    It may be a wild thought but does anyone else think that the suspect in this case - Steven Calkins - could also be linked to the Adji Desir case?

    It is so blatantly obvious that this Calkins character is responsible for the deaths of these two men (yes, I firmly believe they are not alive). You heard it yourself on the show, he is a racist and a liar. I only hope that one day the Collier County Sheriff's Department will one day gather enough evidence to put that serial killer away and get justice for Mr. Williams' and Mr. Santos' families. I shall be intently waiting that day.

    I honestly think the families' best shot will be in a civil court. If that avenue has not already been explored, then it needs to be.

    Also, Tyler Perry (google, if you don't know who he is) is teaming up to bring more attention to this case! Took people long enough to become outraged!!!

    New evidence released in missing man's case

    COLLIER COUNTY, FL -Terrance Williams has been missing from Collier County since January 2004 when he was last seen with a Collier County Sheriff's deputy. Newly released audio recordings show the deputy lied about being the last person to see the missing man.

    snip....Now their disappearance is back in the spotlight, in part because Hollywood star Tyler Perry and civil rights activists are using the Trayvon Martin case to draw attention to what they see as a string of injustices and incomplete investigations involving minorities.

    Looks like Sharpton is going to do a march on this one.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    2 missing Florida men get new attention

    http://www.thenewstribune.com/2012/0...n-get-new.html

    TAMPA, Fla. – Felipe Santos, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, and Terrance Williams, a black man, had little in common until about eight years ago. That was when they disappeared three months apart in the Naples area, both of them right after crossing paths with sheriff’s Deputy Steven Calkins.

    Finally got to see this episode. Just awful. Makes me sick. If was related to one of these missing men, I would be very tempted to take the law into my own hands. Anybody know what Calkins is doing now?

    Search teams hunt for men missing in cold case

    Search teams combed a one-square mile area of Collier County Wednesday after a tip about an infamous missing persons case involving a deputy.

    The search was conducted in a brush-filled location on Vanderbilt Drive just north of Wiggins Pass.

    The tipster reportedly told authorities they saw a patrol car in the area around the time when Terrance Williams and Felipe Santos went missing.

    Just watched Disappeared Episode on ID Channel - Terrance Williams & Felipe Santos

    Seriously? I am baffled that the families have not filed wrongful death suits against Ex-Deputy Steven Calkins!! (That I know of at least) or that No One (again, my assumption) in the Attorney General's Office hasn't been convinced to take the case and file Suspicion of Murder charges against Steven Calkins!

    Admittedly, I am no lawyer nor a legal genius, but from the many cases I have seen highlighted on the ID Channel (yes, not the best legal reference on the planet as it IS a T.V. Show made to dramatize and some are made to sensationalize criminal cases); however, they are actual cases and one is only able to "skew the facts" so much. And I have seen plenty of murder cases that have resulted in guilty convictions without bodies and far less evidence. I meant consider:

    1) It has to be obvious that this ex-deputy was the last person to see both Terrance Williams and Felipe Santos.
    2) In Terrance Williams & Felipe Santos's case, they have eyewitnesses that place BOTH missing persons as being placed in the vehicle of Steven Calkins the day they disappeared.
    3) In the case of Terrance Williams, L.E. Has actual recordings that catch out this ex-deputy in MULTIPLE lies and inconsistencies.
    4) They have racially (and socio-economic slurs on tape that show an extreme bias against individuals without proper vehicle registration and/or insurance coverage.
    AND
    If the suspect wasn't a L.E. Agent, (i.e. I find it difficult to believe if L.E. any where else in the Country has that much circumstantial evidence against the average citizen, that the suspect would not have already been arrested and convicted by now!!)

    Something else, I've seen others on another website point out vehicle GPS, what about his cell phone GPS tracking?, Come on, that's basic investigation (and you can't convince me that with the circumstantial evidence that they couldn't find a judge that would be willing to issue a warrant or subpoena for that information, because that's just b.s.! Not with all the circumstantial evidence).

    All of the above is just MHO! And pardon my venting and assumptions, but this case just chaps my bum!! Because just seems like a major double standard, I get protecting L.E. from prosecution for and during the performance of their L.E. Duties, but that Statue does NOT protect them from prosecution for the commission of a CRIME during their duties (and it doesn't from my experiences locally seeing some corrupt cops getting prosecuted). I hope that this family (hopefully soon) gets some justice, because it has been too long of a time coming, in my opinion!!

    Ok, not sure if previously posted here, but I found the following listed on other sites:

    1) FACEBOOK PAGE - of this case (I haven't visited yet, as my 1st stop was WS):
    https://www.facebook.com/Disappearan...ndFelipeSantos

    2) PETITION REQUEST - A Petition asking for Signatures so that the Governor will look into the case (my next stop if my phone allows it):

    The TRUTH WILL OUT & THERE WILL BE A RECKONING, in this Life or the Next!!!

    any updates?

    I wonder if SC has committed any more murders and gotten away with it since these two men went missing?

    I also wonder about his car and cell phone GPS!!!!
    plus the fact that he lied during his lie detector test IS enough reason to get a search warrant.
