Circumstances

New Castle
On Oct. 2nd before William Perez's disappearance he made two calls. The first call (approx. 2:25pm) arranging a meeting to see a friend at the bar, and the second call (approx. 2:30pm) called his wife from a pay phone. She believes he was in the bar when he called her because of the background noise. Mrs. Perez claims that William was a regular at The Scoreboard Bar & Grill on 500 Maryland Ave. His friend didn't get there until 2:45pm but William was nowhere to be found. Mr. Perez’s van was parked on Bird St. around the corner from the bar. On Oct. 6, 1990 at 10:14am Linda Perez reported her husband William Perez as missing. Additional information obtained from a woman claims that she saw Mr. Perez driving in an old beat up pickup truck driving down 896. The woman compared the face of the suspected Mr. Perez to a photo in the November 5th 1990 Wilmington News Journal article.

Per court records (see documents section) "In 1990, Defendant shot Willie Perez in the head after Perez came to Defendant's house to collect a debt. Perez's body was never recovered. Defendant was arrested in 1999 after the police obtained statements from Defendant's wife and friend about their involvement in disposing the victim's body and cleaning up the crime scene. A grand jury indicted Defendant on charges of Murder First Degree and Possession of a Deadly Weapon During the Commission of a Felony (“PDWDCF”) in April 1999. A jury found him guilty of the lesser included offense of Murder Second Degree and of PDWDCF. Defendant was subsequently sentenced on June 16, 2000 to fifteen years at Level 5 for the murder conviction and fifteen years at Level 5 for the PDWDCF conviction."
