I saw police cars closing dosoris way and oak st. right around where the map on this web page shows. St. Andrews was clear, so I assume it was on Dosoris.

Newsday is reporting the victim as being the missing person Nunzio Izzo. Edward Brown resides at 5 Madeline Place (the location highlighted on the map) and was arrested there. Madeline Place also happens to be the last place Mr. Izzo was seen.

wonder when we'll get the details? where did he stash this man's body since mid-december when he went missing? what was the fight about?
Nick DiLeo January 04, 2013 at 03:45 AM
On behalf of Nunzios family and in their time of sorrow i would ask those who post to be respectful and unless they have first hand knowledge that might help in the investigation please do not report information that may not be accurate please.

How do you know Nunzio was the father of the little girl?
Susan January 04, 2013 at 07:03 AM
And how old is the little girl?

At this time, I thintk it would be helpful and respectful for the Patch to stop accepting comments on this article and to carefully monitor all entries about this incident going forward. This is a real tragedy that took place in our community (not a TV show that you can pause and go get a sandwich). If this was a family member of mine, seeing the word "stashed" in relation to my loved one's body would tear me up. If people are not going to think before they post then I guess the Patch should do it for them

Well said Ernie
Paige Turner January 04, 2013 at 12:35 PM
Nunzio Izzo is not the father of the little girl. The person that claims to know everything because she lives there needs to check her facts. Nunzio Izzo is a friend of the girl's mother. The little girl's father passed away a few years back. Get your facts straight before you spread lies!

Some of the gossiping around here is downright pernicious.

Nassau County Police holding a press briefing at 11. We'll be there.
Kristina S. Heuser January 04, 2013 at 03:41 PM
What a tragedy. My heartfelt condolences to Mr. Izzo's family.

He did not have grandchildren SO PLEASE, stop posting false information. It is not fair to his family or his memory. He was a very kind man and we should respect his families right to privacy and we should not tolerate inaccurate information being spread. Put yourself in his family's shoes, PLEASE! I am sickened at how someone could have done this. A TOTALLY LACK OF COMPASSION and disregard for our fellow mankind. SICKENING!
Ernie January 04, 2013 at 06:50 PM
Is the Patch required to allow readers to post comments? I don't see in stories like this where it adds anything to read misinformation and uninformed opinions. The facts of this tragedy will be revealed when it's the authorities desire to do so. Until then all of this speculation is hurtful to real people and not just strangers but our neighbors. Let's stick to weighing in on the empty storefronts in Glen Cove and not play Glen Cove C.S.I. This is real life and sadly it doesn't get any more real than this. I used to see this gentleman around town occasionally and he always returned my hello with a hello and a smile. I will miss that.

I have known Nunzio for thirty years. I have not seen him in about ten. I used to be a long time resident of Glen cove with family in the police dept. I was also a good friend of Nick's. I was so stunned to hear, of such a good person like Nunz being victimized thi way. I want to wish his family the very best. I did not grow up in a Glen cove that is becoming so dangerous. Many people do not have a conscious today Kevin V.
Jason Molinet January 04, 2013 at 07:09 PM
Agree. Let's keep the comments positive and away from speculation.
Justin LaRocca January 05, 2013 at 01:48 AM
Nunzio has been my friend for a long time and I love his company and he was a great gentle man and will b sorely missed and we always talked and I just can't believe his loss!! Nunzio I love u and will always b your friend
Ms. A.J January 06, 2013 at 06:08 AM
To the Family and Friends of Nunzio Izzo: When this man disappeared, we prayed for his safe return. As a longtime Glen Cove resident, the tragic ending to this story is horrific to all of us who live in this community. May Nunzio be at Peace and May God be with his loved ones at this time. A Glen Cove neighbor.

very sad story..I just don't understand this world...we all live here, together

I was born and raised in Glen Cove, NY and learning of such a tragedy and past atrocities leave me speechless. What was once a charming little town has made a 180 degree turn to the worst. Don't get me wrong I am proud to have grown up in Glen Cove, but it's just to sad to see what it's turned into. My condolences to the family of the deceased.
