DELANO WILSON – WILLIE WILSON ARRESTED AND CHARGED WITH DELANO’S MURDER – ENDANGERED MISSING AUGUST 27, 2014 – USMCC000526LTWH – UPDATED 03.19.2015
UPDATE: WILLIE WILSON ARRESTED FOR THE MURDER OF DELANO – BELOW
LTWH Family Member Leah Wansley has recently brought the case of Delano Wilson forward and asked that we advocate for this beautiful baby boy. Advocating is what we do best, so let’s get right to it!
Date of Birth: July 15, 2014
Height: 1’4” Weight: 12 lbs
Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Missing: August 27, 2014
Delano Wilson was 6 weeks old when he went missing according to his mother, Taniasha Perkins, and father, Willie Wilson. Delano was allegedly abducted while his father was walking around the block with the newborn baby boy. Wilson claims that he was taking his son for a walk when a man, as he describes – a white male, younger than 30, bloodshot red eyes, aggressive – hit Wilson with a pistol and then took Delano.
According to Wilson “It looked like he was on drugs. He was just looking like if he didn’t get what he wanted he was going to kill. He was outta his mind. I mean, he hit me with my son in my arms.” Wilson claims that the hit knocked him out and he came to in time to see the man and a woman taking off with Delano in a blue Ford Taurus. Wilson stated that the attack was actually an attempted robbery – not sure why the HELL robbers would leave behind Wilson’s wallet, Wilson’s two cell phones and Wilson’s marijuana (yep, we will hit on this in a moment), and instead take the baby ….. WTF, are we actually supposed to believe that shit???! ALSO – I have to ask, if Wilson was hit hard enough to knock him unconscious, there would be a bruise, a bump, a laceration, some sort of physical damage done, so how come he isn’t sporting even the smallest of injuries after being as brutally attacked as he is claiming to have been???
Security cameras caught Wilson walking around without his baby before reporting the kidnapping, but was not recording footage of the alley where Wilson claims the kidnapping occurred. Pretty convenient right? Police however, have NO evidence or eye witness accounts to confirm Wilson’s story. Another strange detail considering it was the middle of the day and there were allegedly people out and about in the vicinity that very well could have corroborated Wilson’s story if it were true.
However, witnesses do claim to have seen a very different series of events. One witness told investigators that she saw Wilson running from the alley, the same alley in which he reported being attacked only hours later. The witness stated that when Wilson saw her looking at him he came to an abrupt halt and began walking back to his home slowly.
The search for Delano spread to a nearby wooded area, scuba teams searched Little Eagle Creek, and the banks of the White River, yielding nothing. Hundreds of law enforcement members, homicide detectives, FBI agents, fire and rescue personal swept the entire are around Delano’s home Canine units were also brought in hoping to catch the scent of Delano, again with no results. The searches were called off, and investigators and FBI agents honed in on Perkins and Wilson. Investigators searched the couple’s home and removed evidence including a carpet, plumbing fixtures and pipes, and a bassinet. Perkins stood by crying out “Delano’s not here. Delano’s just not here and he’s out there somewhere and for you guys to be here, it just made me think like my son is out there somewhere and you guys are here, but why, we don’t understand. You’re supposed to be out there finding our son.”
Police Chief Rick Hite believes residents of the neighborhood could hold the key to cracking this case saying, “I think people may not remember what they think is important or may not think what they remembered was important, we need to have that information. Anything and everything is important at this point. It’s not snitching. It’s about doing the right thing, and there is never a wrong time to do the right thing. Now it’s time to do the right thing.”
While Delano’s parents have not been officially named as suspects or persons of interest, they have a background that is quite alarming and red flags are popping up everywhere. Law enforcement has stated that while they are not officially named in the case, the story they are telling leaves MANY questions to be answered.
Perkins and Wilson have said that they have nothing to hide. They say they have given police DNA and were questioned separately for hours, failing to mention that Wilson refused to speak with investigators without an attorney present (totally his right), but that gives the impression they are not full out cooperating. If this were my child I would talk to anyone at anytime to keep the search going, lawyer or no lawyer, all I would care about is finding my son, and if I was innocent I wouldn’t really see the need for a lawyer at all. Tell me parents, in the middle of that panic, would you answer any question posed to you or would you say ‘My son is missing, BUT I don’t want to talk to you about it right now, I would like to wait for a lawyer’?? “Seeing them throw my baby’s picture in my face, calling me a killer saying that his, his own father would do that to him. It just. It hurts.” Perkins claimed. Wilson alleges police “threw my son’s picture in my face and they kept calling me a horrible Dad.”
Lots of tears and sympathy right – well let’s just take a closer look at Willie Wilson and see exactly what type of Dad he is (and if you ask me, police were very generous in only calling him a horrible dad).
First let’s talk about the fact that only days after his son was allegedly kidnapped, Wilson was arrested on a drug charge, spending a night in jail and being released the following day. Remember that marijuana the alleged robbers forgot to steal, it turned into a nice little possession charge for Wilson. Which leads me to ask – WHY THE HELL WAS HE WALKING DOWN AN ALLEY WITH HIS NEWBORN SON CARRYING MARIJUANA IN HIS POCKET?????
RED FLAG NUMBER ONE: DRUG CHARGE DAYS AFTER KIDNAPPING
Next let’s talk about something a little bigger than a drug charge. Let’s talk about Wilson’s daughter, Logan. Logan was only 6 months old when she was beaten so severely that she suffered from two distinct massive brain bleeds, a detached retina and a broken rib and femur. The beating has left her blind, paralyzed and with little to no brain activity. She will need 24 hour care for the rest of her life. At the time of the beating, Wilson and Logan’s mother, Daphne Waters were living together. So here is the thing, when Logan was being examined they discovered upon the new injuries, many older injuries already in the process of healing, meaning that Logan wasn’t only beaten once, but repeatedly. Police questioned Wilson about Logan’s injuries, he claimed to not know what went on in his home when he was not there. Waters admitted to the last beating, the one that left the little girl completely broken. Now I ask all of you parents this, Logan’s injuries show she was beaten for some times, and the injuries she sustained were major, including broken bones.
HOW THE HELL DID WILSON NOT NOTICE THESE INJURIES OVER THE MONTHS WHEN HE WAS LIVING IN THE VERY SAME HOME AS LOGAN???!! Police were never able to fully clear Wilson in his daughter’s abuse, but with Waters confessing to the most recent injuries, the grand jury decided not to indict him and he slipped away scot-free, when he should have faced child neglect charges at the very least for not attending to Logan’s injuries.
According to the police report – “Wilson advised that a social worker informed him of her injuries and that it made him ‘mad as hell.’ He did advise that he doesn’t know what happens at his residence when he’s not there … Wilson advised that at this time, he is not aware and has no knowledge of any incidents that may have occurred, that would cause the injuries that Logan sustained. Wilson told investigators he noticed Logan was vomiting and appeared ill. He believes that the injuries Logan suffered were sustained at a time when he wasn’t present.” Waters is serving 6 years in the Dayton Correctional Institution for felony assault and child endangerment in relation to Logan’s injuries.
RED FLAG NUMBER TWO: HIS 6 MONTH OLD DAUGHTER WAS BEATEN SO HORRIFICLY SHE WAS LEFT, BLIND, PARALYZED AND WITH MINIMAL BRAIN FUNCTION
After all of this history, it really makes someone take time to think, to work through everything with common sense. So let’s see if we can sift through some of the matters and questions raised in relation to this case thus far.
I ran across some interesting points made in a statement analysis done by http://statement-analysis.blogspot.ca/ , which I think are worth putting out there and worth considering.
Here is the statement made by Perkins that was analyzed:
“Please, just please bring my baby back. He’s just one month old. I love my child. I just gave birth to him, he is my one and only son, my first born. I just want to know why. Why would you take my baby? Why can’t you just drop him off somewhere safe so I can see him healthy again?”
Alright, so the first thing noted is Perkins complete lack of using her son’s name creating distance between her and Delano. The next thing noted was her wanting to see him healthy again, a question raising the thought that she knew Delano was not healthy when he was ‘taken’. She never mentions Delano’s well being, never asks for him to not be hurt. She also never asks where Delano is, not even a ‘I need to know where my son is, I need to know he is safe.”
The next statement that Perkins made which was analyzed is:
“I don’t wish this on other parents. I’m too young to be going through this. I just got my job two days ago. I was going to provide for my baby. He means the world to me and his dad. We are good parents. We work hard. We work really hard to provide for a child. And for you to take him away is just tearing a hole in my family and in my heart, he doesn’t deserve this. Please, please let my son go.”
This statement really bothers me more than the first. First thing noted is the complete narcissistic focus on herself, how this is affecting her, how she doesn’t deserve this, never mentioning Delano, never expressing concern for his well being. And again, she never uses Delano’s name. The last thing mentioned REALLY bothers me as a mother. Notice how she stated they “work hard to provide for A child”, not my child, our child, our son, Delano – just A child.
Analyzing statements can end up meaning nothing, and I totally understand this. But I also understand that when I follow my gut, and I look at things such these statements, the picture seems a little clearer, and those thoughts I’m having about what I think happened, seem to be bolstered a little.
This case weighs heavily on me. I want to find this beautiful baby boy alive and well, but my gut is telling me we won’t see that. This case shows some striking parallels with the case of Daisja Weaver. Both involve newborn babies, both involve parents providing ridiculous stories, and very likely both resulting in the death of these angels. To read Daisja’s case, follow the link:
Alright, so the next major point I am going to take issue with is the exact 911 call placed by Willie Wilson to report his son missing. The problem is that he doesn’t really talk about Delano being taken, and even mistakes the baby’s gender when reporting the kidnapping. He very calmly gives a description about him being robbed and pistol whipped then casually addresses that the people that assaulted him took his son. He was also able to give a very detailed description of the ‘assailants’ only moments after he claims to have been pistol-whipped and knocked unconscious.
Here’s the deal. I am going through this from my position as a mother. So I am taking my new baby for a walk around the block, holding them, loving on them. I go through an alley (I can’t imagine going for a walk down an alley, but that isn’t really a point to analyze, to each their own with walking habits.) So here I am in the alley, with my newborn son in my arms and suddenly a man and woman run up to me with a gun. I would scream first, I would also turn to place my body between the attackers and my son. Gun or no gun, I would fight, I would try to kick that guy in the balls (sorry, but it’s true) while the whole time screaming for help. So he hits me with the gun and I black out for a moment. I come to to see these people running off with my child.
I would get up screaming, running after that car yelling “HELP – THEY TOOK MY SON! SOMEONE CALL 911!!! OMG THEY HAVE MY BABY!!!” My screaming gets the attention of someone who calls 911 and they put me on the phone (in the call you can hear people around Wilson, so this is a safe prediction to make). I would get on that phone yelling and crying begging for help, “My son was just taken, please, I need to find my son, my baby, he’s 6 weeks old, Oh God!! Please HURRY!!”. Alright so they ask me to describe my attackers- “I don’t know, it was a guy and a girl, HELP ME FIND MY BABY!!!! They had a white shirt I think, black pants maybe. Oh God, please hurry, my baby, HURRY! They were about my age, I think, I don’t know, they took my son! I was fighting them and was hit with a gun – I’M FINE – MY SON – FIND MY SON!!! I blacked out, they were in a blue car, NOOOOOOO!! Please God do not let my son be hurt, please, please!!” Alright, that entire time I would be crying, frantic, and yelling. Does this sound like how anyone of you parents would react?? Am I far off the mark, or could you all see yourself reacting similarly if you found herself in this situation?
NOW – listen to the 911 call placed by Wilson, and tell me, does he react, EVEN if hurt and in shock, as a parent who just had their newborn snatched from their arms would??
So here is where we stand folks. Delano is missing, this sweet baby boy needs our help. Police have called off all physical searches, but are still working tirelessly to find where Delano is and to find out if he has been hurt. They have collected evidence from Delano’s home and they have been tight lipped about most of the case – which is understandable with an ongoing case. Personally I think the father is a lot more involved and is not being honest about what happened to his son and where his son is. This being his second child to have a horrific tragedy happen surrounding them, it’s too coincidental for me. I hope I am wrong. I hope that my instincts are steering me in the wrong direction. I so badly hope that Delano is found, that his father is innocent and that I can apologize for being wrong …. I hope Delano is safe.
We will be watching this case very closely and will publish any updates and new information as soon as we get them, so stay tuned.
I just received this email from Delano’s mother. Now I normally don’t post the countless emails I receive like this, I am going to share this with you this time, just because I think it really highlights what we are dealing with. Now, more than ever, I believe Delano’s parents are responsible for his disappearance, and I am not going to stop advocating for Delano just because his mother knows how to swear.

UPDATE – DELANO WILSON’S FATHER, WILLIE WILSON, ARRESTED FOR THE MURDER OF THE 6 WEEK OLD BABY BOY
Thank you all for being so patient, especially you Leah Wansley! Updating Delano’s case has been long overdue, so let’s get straight to it.
Willie Wilson, Delano’s ‘father’, has now been arrested in the murder of his 6 week old son. As the investigation continued into Delano’s disappearance, the witnesses continued to be located and the picture became clearer and clearer by the moment, leading to the arrest we all suspected would be coming.
Let’s rewind a tad though and just make sure we include further points that are lighting up that great big old guilty sign above Wilson’s head. You all remember that when Delano was reported missing, Wilson was found to have marijuana on his person, which he caught a drug charge for. Fast forward about 5 months and Wilson was attending court regarding the possession charge. Wilson was asked about Delano and asked if he would like to make a plea for Delano’s safe return by a reporter, and this is what this POS had to say about his missing son, “Not yet, one focus at a time. I gotta get rid of this and I will but for now no comment.” Wilson ended up pleading guilty to possession of marijuana, but those charges could be dropped if Wilson submits to random drug testing for 6 months and completes 24 hours of community service. If he does this, the case will be dismissed. ….Hope he can do it all from his jail cell.
Now when Wilson fabricated his son’s kidnapping, he pretty much lit up that guilty sign immediately. You see the moment it was reported, all of the top authorities in the country were called in to help find this precious baby boy as quickly as possible. What that did was shine an awfully bright spotlight onto Willie Wilson and his actions the morning Delano disappeared. In the authorities’ effort to recreate the kidnapping to help rescue Delano, they pretty much highlighted every strange little detail that quickly revealed this story was so far from adding up, it was unbelievable. Now what did they find?
- Well first they found that there was a surveillance camera near the scene that showed Wilson walking by – WITHOUT Delano – at the time of the alleged robbery/kidnapping. This little discovery resulted in the Homicide unit being called in only moments into the case. Also – these same surveillance videos showed no sign of the vehicle Wilson claimed the kidnappers were driving.
- Second, while canvassing the neighbourhood, police spoke with a neighbour that stated she heard a disturbance coming from Wilson’s home at about 3 o’clock in the morning – a disturbance that neither Perkins nor Wilson mentioned themselves, although Perkins’ mother did confirm that the couple often argued and argued loudly. She also revealed that they could hear their neighbours through the walls, so the possibility of hearing another’s conversation was very high. Maybe they didn’t mention it because it was another nail in their coffin. The neighbours husband who was interviewed two days after his wife had divulged the information told authorities that he clearly heard Tanaisha Perkins screaming “ … damn, this never should have happened,” after which he heard Wilson respond “put it in the shower.” He also stated that he may have heard Perkins’ brother, Romel Perkins, shouting in the argument “Shut up!”
- The third thing highlighted was the time frame. At about 10:45am Wilson said he took Delano out for a walk while Perkins showered. Wilson told police he took Delano for 1 loop around the block, a 10 minute trip, and then decided to take a second loop. It was during this second loop when Wilson reported he had been robbed and Delano kidnapped. But the 911 call Wilson made occurred at 12:02pm, a solid 40 minutes after the alleged incident occurred.
- Fourth, when the 911 call came in, police immediately put their best resources forward, calling in K-9 units and the FBI to launch the search for Delano. Those K-9 units tracked Delano’s scent to a wooded area nearby. Searchers combed through the wooded area, vacant buildings and lots and used sonar on nearby White River, but failed to locate Delano. So these smarty pants thought hey – we should try and track Wilson’s scent and see where that takes us! Guess what, the clothes worn by Wilson during the “attack” were used and K-9 units found that Wilson was tracked to the exact same locations as Delano was tracked to. Hmmmm, nobody mentioned a casual stroll in the woods though ….
- Fifth, and this is a big one for me, one witness stated he had seen a man and woman walking out of the woods where Delano and Wilson’s scent had been tracked, on the morning of the incident. He was shown a photo array, the man positively identified Wilson and Perkins as the people he had seen walking out of the woods.
- Alright sixth – when Wilson went in for questioning, we know police routinely remove personal possessions, which they did with Wilson. This is what left us with the marijuana charge, and with the recovery of the two cell phones. Police obtained search warrants for the phones and had them analyzed by the FBI. What they found is the next 6 or so nails in the coffin. The analysis revealed that a document titled “Infant Abduction Statistics” had been downloaded onto the phone only 2 hours before Wilson called 911. It went to further reveal 24 web inquiries and pages relating to child kidnapping statistics and stories about babies kidnapped and not found, had been searched from 9:34am to 10:23am on the day Delano disappeared.
OK – TIME OUT. The cold, callous evil that resides in a person who ever hurts a child is something that will never be understood – but what I want to know is if stupidity goes hand and hand with this evil. Searching kidnappings on your phone an hour before you report your child kidnapped?? Claiming to have been attacked and yet not having a single scrape to show for it?? Claiming robbery but still having two cell phones and a bag of weed in your pocket?? I want to rage, but I don’t even know where or how to begin because I keep finding myself with my fingers hovering over my keyboard as I shake my head back and forth repeating WHAT THE HELL???
Now let’s talk about the very loud Perkins who insisted on hers and Wilson’s innocence in that lovely written email we received. When authorities first showed the surveillance footage to Perkins, she identified the childless man as Wilson. Later, after the shit really started hitting the fan, she denied that man on the footage was even Wilson at all. Then Perkins went on her finger pointing binge. The search done on the home resulted in the finding of traces of possible human blood in the bathroom sink, in the bathtub and on a light blue baby blanket. Authorities told Perkins they were going to be comparing the blood to Delano’s DNA and was then asked where in the home the crime lab would find the blood and what it would show. Perkins stated she believed they would find blood on the bathroom floor and in the bathtub. She stated that she believed the evidence would show that Wilson had done something to Delano. (A FAAAAR cry from her claims to us!)
When Perkins was interviewed a second time, she told authorities that on the morning of Delano’s disappearance she had awoken at 8:00am when her brother, Romel Perkins returned home from work. She said that Willie and Delano were sleeping at the time. Perkins goes onto say that as she was getting ready to get in the shower, Willie had woken up and was holding Delano. She touched Delano’s arm and it was cold. She says that Willie stated that baby was fine and was just a little cold from the fan, even suggesting Perkins place her finger under the baby’s nose to feel his breath, which she says she did and felt warmth. She stated that Delano then had a clear snot run from his nose which Willie wiped before placing the baby back in to the bassinet. Perkins concluded this interview with authorities saying “I don’t want to say Willie did it, but in the back of my mind I have a funny feeling, but this is not in his character all he does is work. He has already been through something like this.” …. yeah, remember when his 6 month old daughter, Logan, was beaten so badly she was left blind, paralyzed and with minimal brain function …. something like that. I should also mention that in relation to Logan’s case Wilson did take a polygraph examination – which he failed.
Trina Perkins, Tanaisha’s mother, was very vocal about her feelings stating “I feel like they are holding back. I feel like they know something. And they just aren’t saying.” – well Trina, I think that is exactly what your daughter and Wilson are doing ….. oh oops, you meant authorities – my bad.
Throughout this entire ordeal, Delano’s family has been aggressively outspoken about the case, about their insistence that Perkins and Wilson knew nothing, they have called for marches and protests and demonstrations to be held in an effort to ‘find’ Delano. Honestly, from the very beginning, just the manner in which this was approached made me feel like they were putting up one hell of a smoke screen. The efforts proved to be chaotic and for a moment in time it almost felt as though the family was successful at taking the focus off of the “kidnappers” and placing it onto authorities and their handling of the case – which I want to be very clear about, I believe the authorities have done a thorough and professional job and I do nothing but applaud their work, passion and determination in Delano’s case.
And lastly, the Grand Theft Auto connection – let’s keep this simple. The only thing that connects the game to Delano’s case is that the descriptions and subsequent sketches of the alleged kidnappers look almost identical to photos of 2 characters in the game. The game was found in the home, so it is assumed that that is where Wilson got his ‘inspiration’ for the descriptions. This point doesn’t weigh heavy with me simply because it has been shown that there never were any kidnappers/robbers, so whoever the likeness Wilson used as a description is just sort of mute for me at this point. I don’t want people to run away with this Grand Theft Auto thing like it is a big deal – it’s not, he lied, we already knew that, he could have described Pinocchio – but none of that changes that Willie Wilson MURDERED his son Delano.
Willie Wilson was arrested and charged with the murder of his 6 week old son, Delano Wilson. No charges have been filed against Tanaisha Perkins … at this time.
Wilson has entered a not guilty plea and his trial is currently set for April 13, 2015. We will be keeping a close eye on the case as we near trial, let’s just hope there are no major delays.
