Two people arrested in case of missing elderly Lakewood man feared dead

Two suspects have been arrested in connection to the disappearance of an 81-year-old Lakewood man who is feared to be dead.

Ricardo Gonzalez Perez, 35, was arrested by Lakewood police and is being held at the Jefferson County Jail on suspicion of first-degree murder, police said in a Friday news release. Savannah Nicole Wilson, 24, is being held on suspicion of accessory to first-degree murder.

Gail Wilson was last seen about 9:30 a.m. Oct. 31 leaving his home in the 1300 block of South Reed Street, according to Lakewood police.

On Thursday police said unknown suspects drove Wilson’s truck, a 1997 red Ford F-150 with Colorado license plate BXX-317, to various spots in Denver at about 3:30 p.m. Oct. 31. A rolled-up carpet, a tall white laundry basket and numerous black bags, “items likely containing the body of Wilson,” were dumped in multiple areas around Colfax Avenue and Broadway, and East Sixth Avenue and York Street between 3 and 5 p.m. that day.

An investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information on the case is asked to call police at 303-763-6800.
