Mystery Solved

Glen Cove man charged with murder in the second degree

The mystery of a missing person case appears to have been solved, with a tragic ending. 

Nunzio Izzo, 56, of Glen Cove went missing on Dec. 17. His friend, Edward Brown, 46, also of Glen Cove, has been charged with murder in the second degree after a police investigation determined Brown had sold jewelry belonging to Izzo at a pawn shop. 

Further investigation led police to a neighbor of Brown’s on Dosoris Way, where a body was discovered in a container, covered with a tarp, according to police. At this time, police believe the body to be that of Izzo, but positive identification cannot be made until the completion of the autopsy.

The arrest was made on Thursday, Jan. 3, by Glen Cove police, assisted by the Nassau Homicide Squad and Nassau Missing Persons Squad.

A man who suffered from epilepsy and heart problems and took medication daily for those medical issues, according to police, Izzo normally followed the same routine every day, using local cab companies to get around town. When he did not come home on the night of Dec. 17, the family became very concerned, and finally contacted the Glen Cove Police Department on Dec. 20, the police reported. 

The Glen Cove Detective division began to investigate the case along with the Nassau County Missing Persons squad.  Detective VanAllen, Detective Albin and Detective Lieutenant Nagle began the time-consuming process of interviewing everyone who last saw Nunzio.  Nagle said that every investigative lead and tip was investigated, a Silver Alert was broadcast, and the local cable news displayed Izzo’s picture.  

The murder leaves friends and family questioning the reason, and police will next investigate a motive. Brown was arraigned at First District Court in Hempstead and was held without bail.
