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.

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.
