New details in case of remains found off Carolina Beach Road

READ MORE: New details in case of remains found off Carolina Beach Road
WILMINGTON -- There are new developments in the case of human remains found off of Carolina Beach Road earlier this year. Police searched the home of a man who they think could be linked to the women's deaths. Police are not commenting, but they had enough probable cause to issue a search warrant for the belongings of Timothy Craig Iannone. In June police searched a home, car, and storage unit used by Iannone. Among the seized items are stain swabs, eyeglasses and a case from the trash, a bra, a stick wrapped in black tape, and used duct tape from the woods. They also seized jewelry from his car. Iannone was arrested in August 2007 for the kidnapping, rape, and assault of a prostitute and plead guilty to a lesser charge. He is currently on probation. According to police records, Iannone is a fomer cab driver who frequented the area around Carolina Beach Road where human remains were found in April. Police believe the remains may be those of Angela Rothen and Allison Jackson Foy, who have been missing for some time. According to the warrant, Iannone had been questioned about Foy's disappearance before the remains were found. His family said he passed a lie detector test in February. In a phone conversation with Iannone, he said the investigation "has nothing to do with me...I'm not the guy they're looking for...I'm in shock...I never saw this coming...I'm a normal guy with a normal family."
