Investigators in New York say they may have stumbled onto a break in the unsolved murder case of Sarah Fox, a Juilliard student who was found dead in a Manhattan park in 2004.
According to an unnamed law enforcement official, DNA found at an Occupy New York-affiliated protest matches genetic material found at the crime scene. The 21-year-old drama major and aspiring actress disappeared after she left to go running on May 19, 2004. Fox’s body was found six days later in a heavily wooded area of Inwood Hill Park, her clothing removed and larynx fractured. No arrests were made in the killing, though at the time police said Dimitry Sheinman, a nearby resident who said he had “visions” about Fox, was their “No. 1 suspect.”
DNA samples collected from a chain left behind at a March 28 protest in Brooklyn matches the DNA found on a pink CD player found near Fox’s body, the law enforcement official told the New York Post.
