On the Eve of Announcement of Suspect, Tiffany Sessions’ Father Speaks Out
It has been nearly 25 years since Tiffany Sessions disappeared while taking a walk around the University of Florida area.
Sessions was 20 years old when she went missing on Feb. 9, 1989, and her body has never been found. The Alachua County Sheriff’s Office Cold Case Squad has recently recovered new evidence regarding the case and plans to release it tomorrow at a press conference.
Various news outlets are reporting and Patrick Sessions, father of Tiffany, confirmed that police will announced that Paul E. Rowles will be named as a suspect in the case. Rowles was held on another 1992 murder charge and died in state prison last year.
WUFT News spoke with Tiffany’s father Patrick, who is on his way up to Gainesville from South Florida today:
The sheriff’s office will announce a suspect in Sessions’ abduction and probable murder, according to an Alachua County Sheriff’s Office release. Case photographs and investigation details will also be released to the media in an effort to encourage leads from the public.
The press conference will be Thursday at 10 a.m. in the field on the corner of Southwest Williston Road and Southwest 13th Street.
