Deputies to name suspect in Tiffany Sessions case

GAINESVILLE (FOX 13) -

Twenty-five years after she was last seen, investigators in Alachua County say they have a major announcement in the Tiffany Sessions case.

The Alachua County Sheriff's Office plans a Thursday news conference to, in their words, "announce significant developments in the investigation, including naming a suspect in Tiffany's abduction and probable murder."

Sessions, then 20 years old, disappeared from the University of Florida on the evening of February 9, 1989. No one was ever charged in connection with the case.

A website devoted to the case reports that Paul Rowles will be identified as the suspect. Rowles died of natural causes last year already in prison for another murder.

"I feel good," said Tiffany's father, Patrick Sessions. I have been trying for 25 years."

When a FOX reporter asked him if this is closure, he replied "It's getting there."

The break in the Sessions case is having an impact on the other families of missing people.

Jennifer Kesse's parents, Drew and Joyce Kesse, live in Bradenton. He says "Sometimes Joyce and I will sit and say: Nothing is happening. Nothing is happening with Jennifer. What should we do? What should we do? Then something like this pops."

He hopes people will now step forward and give investigators information about the disappearance of his daughter.

Kesse was last seen leaving her job at an Orlando resort. Her car was found one mile away from her home at a complex known as a dumping spot for cars. A surveillance video shows a man walking away from her car.

1,300 leads have come in, and apparently have led investigators nowhere.
