Man arrested in strangling death of NYC jogger

Man arrested in strangling death of NYC jogger

Police suggested today that it was unlikely that Lewis knew Vetrano in any personal or social capacity, and believed the violence occurred following a "chance encounter".

Karina's murder hit the Howard Beach community hard, taking away the feeling of safety. They said he was interviewed by detectives and made detailed confessions.

The newspaper reported that police recovered the DNA from Vetrano's body, but the DNA did not match anyone in a national DNA database or a NY database of convicted criminals.

When Vetrano failed to return home, her father, a retired firefighter, went looking for her with the help of police.

Police sources said cops had come across at least three other persons of interest in the investigation but that DNA analysis cleared them.

"The U.K. has it, why don't we", Vetrano said.

Tillers confirmed Secretary of State: Durbin, Duckworth vote no
Democrats scuttled a planned vote on Tuesday in the wake of Mr Trump's decision to fire acting Attorney-General Sally Yates. Tillerson's appointment to the post seemed to come out of nowhere amid President Trump's transition period.

The 30-year-old Vetrano was strangled when she went for a run alone in Spring Creek Park on August 2 of last year. According to Boyce, her father found her "face down on the ground".

Boyce said police followed 250 leads from the public, and filed 1,700 investigative reports.

Forensic investigators found traces of DNA in beneath Vetrano's fingernails, on her neck and on her phone. "She had the DNA under her nails". She had touch DNA on her back and there was more DNA on her cellphone. "That's how we were able to bring the profile up and that's how we made the link".

DNA at the scene was found but could not be matched to anyone already in police databases. On the six month anniversary of their daughter's death, they asked the state for additional DNA testing.

Thursday marked six months since the day Ms Vetrano had been out jogging in black shorts and a sports top when she was attacked. Specifically, he found her body in a marshy area about 15 feet from a running trail.

At this point, investigators say Vetrano's murder appears to be random.
