Occupy Tied to Murderer

It seems there is a murderer among the Occupy Wall Street protesters:

Police matched genetic material lifted from a pink CD player found at the scene of the 2004 Inwood Hill Park murder of aspiring actress Sarah Fox to DNA on a heavy chain left behind by OWS vandals at the Beverly Road subway station in East Flatbush in March, according to law-enforcement sources.

Fox, a New Jersey native, was just 21 when she disappeared after going for a run on May 19, 2004. Her naked, strangled and decomposed body was found six days later in a heavily wooded area of the park, which runs alongside the Hudson River.

Cops recovered the chain, which OWS activists used to keep gates open on March 28 so people could enter without paying. Matching the DNA on the chain to a suspect won’t be easy, sources said, because the genetic sample could be from an OWS activist or anyone who passed through the gates for a free ride.
