Tiffany Sessions Part 1: Why Police Think They've Found Their Lead Suspect
GAINESVILLE - It's the biggest clue they have had in 25 years.
We're talking about the Tiffany Sessions case...the UF student who disappeared without a trace in February, 1989.
Police let us onto the dig site where they are hoping to find Tiffany's remains, and it's the same site where they found another missing Gainesville woman's remains that they have connected to Paul Rowles, their lead suspect now in the Session's case.
But this won't be over until Hilary Sessions says she sees her daughter and she can give her a proper burial.
Police pegged Rowles after finding the date of Tiffany's disappearance written on his address book he had in prison.
Rowles died while he was incacerated last year, and for Tiffany's father Patrick the man is a symbol of anger.
Rowles was convicted of murdering a woman in Miami but was paroled after serving his sentence and moved to Gainesville a year before Tiffany went missing in 1989.
Her family says this is the first step in a long journey ahead.
At the press conference police say their suspect Rowles worked as a pizza delivery guy and delivered scaffolding to apartment complexes along the road where Tiffany went walking each day.
