The NYPD released a sketch of a man wanted for questioning in the murder of jogger Katrina Vetrano.
New York Police released the sketch of the unidentified man who they say is not a suspect or person of interest at this time in the slaying of the Queens jogger. However, the NYPD wrote on Twitter that they want to talk to the man.
“We are seeking to speak to the male in this sketch about the murder of #KarinaVetrano. Please call #800577TIPS,” he wrote. “We want to speak to this person because we feel that he was there,” Boyce said Wednesday, according to The Daily News. “He is not a subject. He is not even a POI (person of interest).”
The New York Daily News said the man, “who is not believed to be the killer, was seen coming out of the weeds at Spring Creek Park near the Belt Parkway around the time Vetrano was killed on August 2.”
Boyce said, according to Pix 11: “We don’t know who he is. We don’t know if he’s a fellow jogger.” The man, who was seen by a utility worker who gave the description of him to police, was wearing a wool hat, which police consider unusual since Vetrano disappeared August 2, which was a hot day. h/t heavy
