  • Details of Disappearance
    Before William Perez's disappearance he made two calls. The first call arranging a meeting to see a friend at the bar, and the second call called his wife from a pay phone. She believes he was in the bar when he called her because of the background noise.

    William was a regular at The Scoreboard Bar & Grill on 500 Maryland Avenue. His friend didn't get there until 2:45pm but William was nowhere to be found.

    Mr. Perez' van was parked on Bird Street around the corner from the bar. On October 6, 1990 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.

    In 1990, James Deangelo shot Willie Perez in the head after Perez came to his house to collect a debt. Perez's body was never recovered.

    Deangelo was arrested in 1999 after the police obtained statements from his wife and friend about their involvement in disposing the Perez' body and cleaning up the crime scene.

    A grand jury indicted Deangelo on charges of Murder First Degree and Possession of a Deadly Weapon During the Commission of a Felony in April 1999. A jury found him guilty of the lesser included offense of Murder Second Degree and of PDWDCF. He was subsequently sentenced on June 16, 2000 to fifteen years in prison.
