Two men (unrelated, who didn’t know each other) disappeared from Naples, Florida three months apart under the exact same circumstances. Both men were last spotted being arrested by deputy Steve Calkins for driving without a license. Neither men were taken to the jail.
They just disappeared.
His story is that he dropped both men off at Circle K convenience stores and drove away. There isn’t as much evidence to go on with Santos’ disappearance, but his story was actively disputed by the available evidence when it comes to Terrance’s disappearance. For instance, he had Terrance’s car towed and told the tow operator that the car was abandoned. But there were witnesses who saw him pull over Terrance and arrest him. What did he do with these men???
According to the Collier County Sheriffs Office, the 27-year-old was last seen in January of 2004 by Deputy Steven Calkins.
Calkins said Williams was having car trouble that day, so he pulled him over near a North Naples cemetery and then gave him a ride to a convenience store.
The traffic stop was never called in, but later Calkins had Williams’ car towed.
Four days later, when Williams’ mother was desperately looking for her missing son, Calkins denied ever seeing him.
Dispatcher: I hate to bother you on your day off but this woman’s been calling us all day. You towed a car from Vanderbilt and a hundred, 111th Monday, a Cadillac, do you remember it?
Calkins: Uhh, no.
Dispatcher: Do you remember? She said it was near the cemetery.
Dispatcher: And the people at the cemetery are telling her you put somebody in the back of your vehicle and arrested them and I don’t show you arresting anybody.
Calkins: I never arrested nobody.
“Why are you lying unless you have something to hide,” said Gonzalez.
During an internal investigation Calkins’ stories didn’t match up – and he failed a polygraph test.
He was fired from the department.
