WPD interested in Iannone, former suspect in Foy and Rothen murders

The man cleared as a person of interest in the murders of Allison Foy and Angela Rothen is once again a suspect. Wilmington police detectives confirmed today that Tim Iannone is back on their radar. He was dismissed as a suspect in November after passing a lie detector and searches of his home were inconclusive. Investigators would not confirm why Iannone is once again a suspect, but said they have new information that points back to him. “At the time we did everything we could to prove him guilty or prove him innocent and we came up with nothing since that time we have gotten some newer leads that lead us back toward looking at Iannone again,” said Detective Overton of the WPD. Iannone is currently in jail on an unrelated charge. Sunday marks one year since the remains of Allison Jackson Foy and Angela Rothen were found in a wooded area off of Carolina Beach Road.
