The NYPD is hoping for new leads from the public to help them find the killer of a 30-year-old jogger in Queens.
Cops have released some signs people can look for to help pinpoint who raped and strangled Karina Vetrano in Howard Beach on Aug.2.
The suspect may have been a familiar face to parkgoers, police said Wednesday.
The killer is likely familiar with Spring Creek Park, the scene of the crime, cops said.
“He may have been frequenting or even living in the park for days, weeks, or months prior to the assault,” according to an NYPD statement.
Investigators think the murderer may have appeared disheveled and scratched up in the hours after the killing, police said.
Afterwards, he likely disappeared from the park, and “moved his residence to another area of the borough or city,” cops said, offering up an excuse for the change in routine.
Cops are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
