A working phone number for Calkins couldn't be found. In a 2006 interview with the Naples Daily News, he called his involvement in the two cases "coincidence extreme," and he told other media that he didn't know anything about the disappearances.
In a September 2004 letter to the sheriff, Calkins said that his use of black dialect was "not meant to be offensive," but he admitted it was "in poor taste. He also asked the agency to reconsider his firing, saying that he was on medication for stress, anxiety and depression, and that a psychologist said he was "burnt out, overwhelmed, under considerable stress at home and work."
The former sheriff said that before he retired in 2009, he tried to get the story into the media around the anniversary of the men's disappearance in the hope of generating new clues.

Calkins, a seventeen-year veteran of the police department, had a clean record prior to this incident. He has not been charged in the disappearances of Williams or Santos and maintains his innocence. Williams parents filed complaint against Calkins after their son's disappearance and the deputy was subsequently fired by the police department. An internal investigation found that he had lied about the Williams case and violated agency policy.
Williams's mother believes her son did not leave voluntarily, however; she states that he would never let so much time pass without contacting her. He kept in almost daily touch with her before he vanished. Many of his belongings were left behind at her home.

They fired Steven Calkins, but that is not justice or mercy. Steven Calkins should get the corporal punishment he administered to Terrance and Felipe. He is a racist, kidnapper, and serial killer. He is walking around free while executing his own form of ethnic cleansing.
