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.

I just retired from law enforcement and this man is guilty. I was just watching a rerun of the Foy case on Disappeared in Discovery I.D. And they showed his interview from Dateline and when he was asked separately if he killed Mrs. Foy and Rothen he said "No" but shook his head yes! Tell tell sign that he is lying through his teeth! And when asked what did he think happened, it was like he reflected in his thoughts of the murders during a pregnant pause and had a momentary smirk then said he didn't know! And he said what kind of mind would think of that! That is one sick puppy! He's killed others besides those two ladies, I hope they get this scum bag off the streets, and I hope he rots in jail, then hell for what he has done to those women and Foy's family especially the daughters. And even though Ms. Rothen was a drug addict & prostitute, her life had value as well and it wasn't anyone's right to take it from her! Rest in peace ladies!

I saw that same thing!! A

I saw that same thing!!
A good liar can fool a polygraph, but in an unfamiliar circumstance, like a tv interview, the body will betray. This dude is guilty as hell!
