Clearwater Police Arrest Suspect In 2011 Murder Case

Clearwater Police detectives have arrested a suspect in the murder of a man two years ago.

Roman Izzo, a major in the U.S. Army stationed at Fort Leavenworth, was arrested Thursday by Clearwater detectives who flew to Kansas. He had been indicted by a Pinellas County grand jury the day before.

Izzo, 35, is being charged with first-degree murder in the slaying of Vincent Edward Lee, 43. Lee was found slain inside his condominium on Nov. 16, 2011, off Landmark Drive in the Countryside area.

Izzo is married to Lee's former wife. Lee and his ex-wife were involved in a dispute over custody and living arrangements for their children after the couple divorced.

Izzo is being held in the Leavenworth County Jail pending extradition to Clearwater.

No further information is being released at this time, as the investigation continues.
