Sarah Fox was found dead in New York City back in 2004. Nearly nine years later, her killer is still at large, but new evidence provides some much-needed hope.

A chain affiliated with Occupy Wall Street has been found to match DNA with a CD player that police discovered when her body was found in a wooded area of Inwood Hill Park in Upper Manhattan on May 19, 2004, according to The Associated Press.

While no one person has been connected to the DNA, this is more information than cops have been able to dig up in recent years.

The late Juilliard student was only 21 when, she went missing after going for a jog at Inwood Hill Park. According to the Associated Press, her body was found in the park six days later with her clothing gone and her larynx fractured. The CD player was found 100 feet away. Police questioned a man who would go on to say he had “visions” about Fox.

Dimitry Sheinman, a resident of the neighborhood near the park, claimed to have been visited by Fox in visions and wished to help the investigation, but he quickly found himself as the number one suspect in the case. To this day he has denied any wrongdoing or involvement with the crime. He’s never been charged.

The chains OWS affiliation comes from its use in a protest on March 28, when it was used to hold open an emergency exit gate at a Brooklyn subway station in order to draw attention to transit issues by providing passengers with free rides.
