Details of Disappearance

Roland was last seen between 9:45 and 10:00 p.m. on September 26, 2005 at the Parktown Cafe, a club in the vicinity of the 1700 block of Linn Street on the west side of Cincinnati, Ohio. He was with his half-brother, Deion Akemon, at the time. Neither man has never been heard from again.
Akemon and Roland's families stated it is uncharacteristic of the men to be out of touch with them. The brothers, who have the same father, were very close and often frequented the west side of Cincinnati. Both of them have criminal records and were allegedly involved in drugs, but their families stated they had been trying to break away from their criminal pasts. Akemon resided in Memphis, Tennessee in 2005, and was visiting Cincinnati when he and Roland disappeared. He had been in the city for only one day.

Shortly after their disappearances, some of Roland and Akemon's personal belongings were found in a dumpster on McMicken Street in the city. The items included the men's cellular phones, wallets and car keys, one pair of sunglasses, and Roland's white Cincinnati Reds baseball cap which he had been wearing when he disappeared. The cap was bloodstained. Authorities began to suspect foul play after this discovery, and stated they were investigating Akemon and Roland's cases as homicides.

No arrests have been made in Akemon and Roland's cases, but foul play is suspected in both disappearances. The men's cases remain unsolved.

Two half-brothers remain missing

December 4, 2005
By Christy Arnold
Enquirer staff writer

William Johnson should have heard from his two sons by now.

Half-brothers William Larry Roland and Dion T. "Bay-Bay" Akemon disappeared from a West End bar Sept. 26.

"This is the longest I haven't heard from them," Johnson said. "We used to talk almost every other day."

Roland, 22, and Akemon, 32, vanished from the Parktown Café on Linn Street around 9:45 p.m. that Monday night.

The only trace of them since was found inside a Dumpster on McMicken Street, where Cincinnati police officers found their cell phones, wallets and keys.

They also found Roland's white baseball cap in the Dumpster - with blood on it.

Laura Johnson said she believes her nephews dead, which would make the brothers two unaccounted homicides in the city that has seen 75 other victims. A total of 77 would make 2005 one of the most violent years in decades.

"I feel if they were (alive), they would've called us," Laura Johnson said. "We were all pretty close. I talked to them two or three times a week."

Roland and Akemon didn't view themselves as half-brothers.

"They were brothers," Laura Johnson said. "They were the best of friends."

Each of the brothers expressed interest in breaking from his criminal past, family members say.

"Both of them were talking about getting their lives together," Laura Johnson said.

Roland had been applying for jobs, but his convicted felon status made getting hired difficult.

Akemon, who had been living in Memphis, talked about moving to a new city like St. Louis, where he knew no one but would have a new beginning.

Neither got a chance.

Family members don't believe drugs were involved in their disappearance.

"I don't think that's what it was," William Johnson said. "People I know that have been around said they didn't see any cocaine."

Laura Johnson said she believes retaliation is the motive. "From what I heard, it's not drug-related," she said. "It was retaliation. I'm not sure what about."

Roland had been a free man for only two months before he went to Parktown Café that night in September. He had been locked up from October 2004 to July 11 on a charge of failure to comply with a police order and drug possession, according to the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction and the Clerk of Courts.

Roland has faced drug, weapons, breaking and entering, robbery and kidnapping charges in the last five years.

Roland and others were accused of forcing their way into an apartment, pulling shirts over the victims' heads, tying them up and stealing $10,000 in cash on July 17, 2004, according to court documents. The charges were dropped Nov. 17, 2004.

Roland spent time in prison and on community control for drugs, weapons and breaking and entering between 2002 and 2003.

Akemon, of Memphis, had only been in town one day. "He just came up to visit," William Johnson said.

Akemon spent a little more than a year, from 1990 to 1991, in an Ohio prison on a theft charge, according to the Department of Rehabilitation and Correction. He pleaded no contest to a 1998 drug charge and an escape charge and received community control, according to the Clerk of Courts.

Laura Johnson said she just wants to know the location of her two nephews so the family can properly bury them.

"I don't care who did what. I don't care who you are. Just let us know where they are," pleaded Laura Johnson.

Roland is described as 5 feet, 7 inches and 150 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. He had been wearing a white baseball cap, white shirt, long, black jean shorts and Air Force One sneakers.

Akemon is 5 feet, 3 inches. He weighs about 125 pounds. He also was wearing Air Force One sneakers, along with a white shirt and black shorts.

Anyone with information is asked to call District One Investigative Unit at (513) 352-3505 or Crime Stoppers at (513) 352-3040. Crime Stoppers callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward.
