Tyler Perry offers $100K reward in Fla. cold cases
NAPLES, Fla. (AP) - January 10, 2013 (WPVI) -- Filmmaker Tyler Perry is offering a $100,000 reward for information in the decade-old case of two men who went missing after separate encounters with a sheriff's deputy in southwestern Florida.
Perry joined the Rev. Al Sharpton and Ben Jealous of the NAACP at a news conference Thursday in Naples to discuss the missing-person investigations of Terrance Williams and Felipe Santos.
Santos and Williams disappeared three months apart in the Naples area in 2003 after crossing paths with Collier County Sheriff's Deputy Steven Calkins. He was never charged but was fired the next year.
Perry says the media is not paying enough attention to missing-person cases involving minorities.
