YahooNews: TYLER PERRY is offering a $100,000 reward for information in the case of two men who disappeared in the Naples, Florida area in 2003.
Both were minorities . . . one was black and the other was an illegal immigrant from Mexico. They disappeared within three months of each other . . . and a Collier County Sheriff's Deputy named Steven Calkins may have been the last person to see both men alive.
He was a suspect, but was never arrested. However, he was fired after he stopped cooperating with the investigation.
Perry held a press conference Thursday with AL SHARPTON and the head of the NAACP to announce the reward.
Sharpton said, quote, "[Perry] began telling me the story . . . saying if we fight for what's right, how do we forget about people who just disappeared? And I felt guilty, because he's right. All of us have not done all we should."
