In May 2004, a 21-year-old Julliard drama student was reported missing. Sarah Fox was last seen leaving her Inwood apartment to go jogging; a few days later, her body was found in Inwood Park, surrounded by tulip petals. The killing has remained unsolved but now NBC New York reports that the NYPD has linked DNA evidence from the crime scene to the March 2012 Occupy Wall Street subway strike protest.

According to NBC New York, "Investigators recovered [Fox's] pink CD player in the woods just yards from her body. Sources said Tuesday the DNA found on the CD player is linked to DNA found on a chain left by Occupy Wall Street protesters at the Beverly Road subway station in East Flatbush on March 28. Sources said they have not identified a person to the DNA. There's no evidence that the DNA belongs to the Occupy Wall Street protesters who chained open the gates." Right—anyone who walked by the chained subway gates could have touched the chain.

Dr. Lawrence Koblinsky, a forensics expert at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, tells NBC New York, "This is a major clue in this investigation and could break the case... You’ve got the same DNA left at two distinct sites. Until they find the individual who left that DNA we won’t know. But the likelihood is high the person who left that DNA on the CD player is the killer of Sarah Fox."
