More than 24 hours after Isabel Calvo Palacios was reported missing to the Wilson Police Dept., officers were still on the scene at 4710 Ward Blvd.
Crime scene tape surrounded the home that belongs to 56-year-old Gregory K. Parks. Evidence markers were scattered across the driveway and a tarp was on the ground next to a white sedan.
Court records show Parks has been arrested more than 100 times since 1983. The crimes he has been convicted of range from manslaughter to attempted first and second-degree rape.
According to The Wilson Times, The NC Court of Appeals overturned his most recent convictions from last year of participating in the prostitution of a minor. The ruling led to Parks being released from prison 27 years early.
Parks spoke with ABC11 by phone Wednesday. He said he had nothing to do with Palacios's disappearance. He said she spent the night at his home and couldn't find her car keys the next morning, so he allowed her to leave her vehicle at his house.
"We were not close friends, just associates. I had known her for 4-5 months on just a casual basis. I wish she would walk up right now and this would all go away," he said. "I allowed her to leave her car there and I explained that to the police."
Wilson police have not identified any persons of interest and are still asking the public to keep an eye out for Palacios.
She has brown hair, brown eyes, and a small frame of 5 foot 2 inches.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Wilson Police Dept. at (252) 399-2323 or Wilson Crime Stoppers (252) 243-2255.
