His acquittal at a subsequent trial ended the state’s case against him. Although he cannot be tried again, he knows that some people will not be persuaded of his innocence.

“I simply want everyone to understand that I did not murder her. I mean, I’m aware that I still receive looks. I continue to receive finger-pointing.”

“Even though I moved away from that neighborhood, I can still feel the stares and looks, especially when I return,” Foley says.

Despite this, Foley continues to live and raise Heath, who was just ten years old when his mother was shot and died in their home’s shower.

Former Coldwater Minister Published Foley Murder Book

Andrew Lombardo, a former clergyman in Coldwater, wrote a book about the murder of Dee Dee Foley.

The e-book “The Ultimate Sacrifice: The Murder of a Small Town Wife” was released on Amazon Kindle.

Lombardo arranged the marriage of Tom and Dee Dee Foley. He was a former minister at the First Baptist Church.

He was also Tom’s ball coach, someone he knew from their days together in Coldwater.

While working in English teaching in China for the past six months, he completed the book after spending years working on it with Tom Foley and others.

It was standard law enforcement practice to blame the spouse for too many crimes. Since the person who is closest to the victim typically commits a murder, it is understandable, Lombardo added.

In this case, he said that the detectives and the prosecutor chose the wrong suspect. “They quickly and firmly formed their opinions but were ultimately disproven.

They succumbed to preconceived beliefs instead of carrying out the task of justice and sentenced an innocent man to life in prison,” he said.

Lombardo alleged there had been a “rush to judgment” and demanded that the state reexamine the case.
