Terrance Williams and Felipe Santos: Missing 10 years

Terrance Williams and Felipe Santos Missing Collier County Florida

September 4, 2018 – A civil rights attorney, Ben Crump filed a civil lawsuit against the ex deputy Steve Calkins who last saw Terrance Williams alive in Collier County.  Currently the Felipe Santos family has not joined the law suit.   Actor Tyler Perry who has been involved with the case since 2013 is doubling his  reward for information to $200,000.

The Missing Collier Men

Terrance Williams went missing from Naples, Fla. in January 2004 and Felipe Santos in October 2003.

Both men were last seen with a Cpl. Steve Calkins, a police officer with the with the Collier sheriff’s department at the time.

Calkins stated that he drove Felipe Santos, of Naples, who has not been seen since Oct. 14, 2003 to a Circle K store and dropped him off, instead of arresting him for driving without a license.

Calkins also said he drove Terrance Williams, of Naples, who has been missing since Jan. 12, 2004, to a Circle K store in North Naples, because his Cadillac had broken down. Neither men have been seen again.

Neither men have been seen on the Circle K surveillance video.

Calkins Conversation

When Calkins stopped Williams the conversation he had with dispatch was recorded:

“What the f— are you doin’?” Calkins asked.
“What are you doin’ sucka?” Jolicoeur responded.
“Well, I got a ‘homie’ Cadillac on the side of the road here, signal 11, signal 52, nobody around,” Calkins said.
“All right.”


“The tag comes back to nothin’, it’s a big old white piece of junk Cadillac. . . . I’m towin’ it,” Calkins said.

“You tow it baby, give me the VIN number.”

After reading the dispatcher the VIN number, Calkins said, “It’s gonna come back to one of the brothers in Fort Myers.”

Later, after learning there was no registration for the car, Calkins said, “That’s a hell of a deal.”

“It’s a homes’ car.”

Conversation explained

Jolicoeur later explained that he and Calkins were using language from the “Dirty Harry” movie Sudden Impact. Jolicoeur admitted to “poor judgment” and said this type of conversation had “just kind of become an ongoing thing with us and, unfortunately, I got caught on tape saying that.”

According to Calkins, Williams asked him “for a ride so he would not lose his job and that it was just up to the Circle K at Wiggins Pass Road.”

As Calkins later explained, Williams “was very clean cut. That’s one of the reasons I helped him. Outside of his long dreadlocks, I mean he, he seemed to be a very clean young man . . . and very respectful of me and very well-spoken.”

So, Calkins said, he drove Williams to the Circle K and then let him know his license tag had expired. He did not explain why he didn’t tell Williams about the expired tag earlier. Calkins did not arrest Williams for driving without a valid license.

Calkins said Williams told him he had a valid registration and receipt in his glove compartment in the Cadillac. So, as Calkins tells it, he left the Circle K, and drove back to the Cadillac alone.

Calkins said later, “Bing, bang, boom. I gave the kid a ride and he duped me, obviously,” Calkins said, because he found out that Williams didn’t work at the Circle K, but a Pizza Hut in Bonita Spring but, remember, the Circle K Surveillance camera never showed he was there.


Investigating the Calkins story, authorities found discrepancies in his story, reports SP Times:

He told dispatcher Jolicoeur he was investigating an abandoned car (“signal 11”), even though his later statement indicates Williams was driving it when he stopped him.
Phone records show Calkins never used his cell phone to call the Circle K, as he had claimed.

No one at the Circle K remembered getting a call from a deputy that day.
Calkins later called another dispatcher, gave Williams’ date of birth, and asked for a background check. Calkins said he was alone. But investigators came to strongly doubt his story, because where would he have gotten the date of birth? Not from the car, because it had no registration. Not from Williams, because he wasn’t by the car anymore. Even more troubling, the date of birth that Calkins gave was not Williams’ real birth date, but a false one Williams previously gave out when in trouble.

“So Terrance would know that date of birth,” Collier Sgt. John Morrisseau said, “but nobody else would.”

Calkins took three lie detector tests

The polygraph examiner asked: “After you dropped Terrance at the Circle K, did you have any further contact with him?”

Calkins said no. According to the lie detector test, he failed that question.

“I might have been a little sloppy, I might have been a little lazy, and for that I’m truly sorry,” Calkins told investigators in a sworn statement on March 30, 2004, that was among his last acts as a Collier County deputy. “But I honestly believe that I have not lied about anything.”

Calkins fired

Calkins who worked for the police force for 17 years was fired in 2004 when he failed a polygraph test related to Williams’ disappearance and relaying inconsistent stories. He was named a person of interest by the authorities, but he has never been charged with anything related to their disappearance.

Don Hunter, the Collier County sheriff at the time, said Calkins’ patrol car was tested for blood and signs of a struggle, but nothing was found. Even a tracking device was put on Calkins’ car in case he may have dumped their bodies and had gone back to the scene, but nothing turned up, reports the Syracuse news.

“Cases such as these highlight a growing concern about the lack of media coverage when it comes to missing person cases involving people of color,” a statement publicizing the event said, according to the Naples Daily News.  Maybe so, but the Discovery Channel continues to run the story.

  1. Sad…..I just seen the case on tv, Allllllllll I can say is that one day WE ALL has to pay n answer to our God 🙂 sooooooo enjoy ur little freedom now cause his day will one day n sooooon come 😉

  2. The cop did it and either here or after his death, he will be judged harshly. Normally, I almost always support law enforcement but this guy was one-off.

  3. The cop without a doubt did something to them come on it is to much of coincidence. He saw both of them last and now both missing. I believe he is guilty of harming them.

  4. Just finished watching the the I'D show. This cop is a racist that's his twisted motive and he knows what happened to Terrance and Felipe. The families have my prayers and I hope that cop pays!!!!!! Bastard!

  5. I wonder why the FBI has not investigated? They have a better shot at getting him to talk than local law enforcement. They could have been transported over state lines. Who knows?? The FBI can get involved once they mention that little legal fiction. They were involved in the search for Jenise Wright and she was not taken across state lines, but she was white.

  6. The fake officer killed both of them and fed them to alligators. That's why there are no remains. Racist.

  7. Everybody knows 9 times out of 10 the last person to see you alive did it. They just let this racist serial killer go scott free. But everybody has to pay. And his payday is coming.

  8. You don't recognize these racists because they don't have their sheets on. I suspect that Calkins and his dispatch buddy are in the same secret club. Map the radius by the time and note how many of his buddies are within that radius. I don't understand why this joker is so hard to figure out…unless he has help

  10. I still don't get why this retired officer has not been investigated by the FBI. I think a grand jury would indict based on eyewitness testimony. Not every case has fingerprints and DNA!

  11. This is so disturbing its funny how law enforcement can bring charges on some people with less circumstantial evidence than this but they seem to act as if there hands are tied as regards to a fellow officer. I know they cant convict him on lies alone but it appears that this Steven caulkins guy was doing a lot more than just lying he was covering his tracks badly it appears the only thing he is good at is getting away with murder.
