Artwork for The Last Ride

The Last Ride

True Crime

Two young men of color vanished three months apart, on the same road in Naples, Florida, under eerily similar circumstances nearly 20 years ago. They were last seen with the same white sheriff's deputy. The since-fired deputy said he gave the men rides to Circle K stores, a story that could never be corroborated. He's the only person of interest, but has never been charged. No one has. What went wrong? Did the police drop the ball? Did the media? The eight-episode series, distributed by the NPR Network, includes new details and exclusive interviews with Tyler Perry, Ben Crump, family and friends of the men, and investigators, and dramatic polygraph audio. Reported by veteran journalists with the Naples Daily News and The Fort Myers News-Press, part of the USA TODAY Network, and produced in partnership with WGCU Public Media.

  • Disturbing must listen

    Thank you for bringing attention to such a disturbing case. We don’t often hear the stories of missing young men. Our media needs to do better bringing stories like this to the national scene. I hope they find Felipe and Terrence’s bodies so they can finally charge Steven.
