New Information in Missing FDL Man Case

Updated:
Fond du Lac -

Action 2 News has confirmed the body believed to be missing Fond du Lac man Timothy Nance was found in a Milwaukee neighborhood on the city's far northwest side last Thursday.  An autopsy has been completed but the results won't be released until a news conference Tuesday.

Neighbors of Timothy Nance on East 10th Street in Fond du Lac remain shocked, not only about his disappearance, but also what appears to be his death.

"I didn't think it was going to end up the way it sounds like it is," says Nance's next door neighbor Tim Dietrich. "It's pretty shocking, surprising that it ended up that way. I just figured he'd skipped town and was gone for awhile."

Nance was last seen on November first. His wife reported him missing four days later. And then on November 20th, police investigators were seen coming and going from Nance's Fond du Lac home.  Police also released a statement saying they had strong reason to believe Nance was killed. That same day Nance's wife, Eve, and her sister, Tina Ewell, were arrested in connection with his disappearance. Both remain in custody today, though neither have been formally charged.

And while Fond du Lac Police won't release any information until a news conference tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, Milwaukee Police confirm Nance's body was found in a neighborhood in a far northwest section of their city. Residents in the area say they saw authorities pull a body out of a wooded area at the end of their dead end street last Thursday.

"It was hard at first because we couldn't find him. Then it was like man he's not here to have even a Thanksgiving meal but on a good note it was okay that they say they found him," said Marcus Allen, Nance's brother.

Says Fond du Lac District Attorney Eric Toney, "It's an ongoing investigation and I'm not going to release any other details of the investigation at this time."

Even Allen is not privy to any additional information about the case.

"I mean still to this day we don't know exactly what all the charges are going to be or what not. The only thing we can say is it's a little closure but till we really find out what's really going on with the system we won't know right now," said Allen.

Whatever the outcome he's pledging to keep his brother's memory alive.

"I mean like I have a picture up there with candles I light every night. I've got a picture in my car. Everything we go somewhere I mean. So he's never forgotten. Everywhere I go I'm somewhere seeing his face," said Allen.
