NewsRadio 920 WHJJ and the Associated Press

WARWICK, R.I. (AP) — Warwick police say they have found some DNA evidence that may help them solve the murder of a jogger found dead in City Park last year.

Police tell WPRI-TV the DNA fits the profile developed of an unknown man they believe is responsible for bludgeoning 66-year-old John Fay.

The body of the retired postal worker was discovered in a trash barrel in the park in May 2013. Family member say Fay frequently took early morning runs in the park.

Police in January distributed photos of a sledgehammer they found near the murder scene. They have not said if that hammer has been connected to the crime or is linked to the DNA evidence.
