The second set of human remains found off Carolina Beach Road has been identified as Allison Jackson Foy's. Wednesday Wilmington Police received a phone call from a Texas lab that has been working to identify two sets of remains found in April. The cause of Foy's death has not been released. NewsChannel 3 spoke with Foy's sister, Lisa Valentino, who said she had a feeling for a while the remains were her sister's, but knowing for sure is still very emotional. "I believe it's resolution and I believe we can move forward from here, but the other side of that is, and now that I know where my sister is, there's another question out there of who did this to her? And so now this is a whole other world that my family and I are about to enter that I could have never imagined in a million years that this is where we would be," Valentino said. Valentino would like for Foy's remains to be taken to her family in Long Island, NY. Valentino described her sister as a good woman and a great mother whose children were her life. Foy was last seen at a Monkey Junction pool hall in July 2006. Her bones were found off Carolina Beach Road in April. Another set of remains found near Foy's has already been identified as Angela Rothen's. An autopsy report released Tuesday shows Rothen died from having her neck cut and possibly head trauma. Police say knowing the identities of the remains does not change anything about the ongoing investigation. No charges have been made.
