Cops caught a suspect Saturday in the murder of Karina Vetrano, the beautiful jogger whose brutal strangulation last summer in the high weeds of Spring Creek Park in Queens had transfixed the city.
Officials did not immediately release the name of the suspect, but sources told The Post he is in his 20s and lives in a housing project in East New York, Brooklyn, a neighborhood just west of her home in Howard Beach.
The suspect had been on police radar for a while, sources told The Post.

And that the authorities had no interest in pursuing the matter...
Mohammed from Somalia. Just as good a guess as any!
Bet he was trying to get a scholarship to Yale or Harvard, worked 5 jobs like a Jamaican, and attended church every Sunday morning.
Another one of DeBlasio’s sons, eh?
Or Juan from Guadalajara, deported 3 times earlier.
“... he is in his 20s and lives in a housing project in East New York, Brooklyn...”
Hang him whoever he is, but “projects” is a strong hint.
“Its believed detectives targeted the man after examining stop and frisk reports from neighborhoods near the scene of Vetranos killing, and the suspect and DNA match emerged.”
So.... Stop & Frisk does work after all.
This story was from August 31, 2016, shortly after the murder:
Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce explained why the NYPD was keen on speaking to the man: ‘He was seen on the pathway of the Belt Parkway, which is in the north end of the park, of Spring Creek Park. That’s why we’re putting it out.
‘We want to speak to this person, because we feel that he was there.’
Boyce continued: ‘This sketch was prepared by a utility worker who was working in the area at the time and saw this individual near the top of the park, Spring Creek Park.’
Boyle said the man is described as black male who is 35 to 45 years old.
He said: ‘He’s 5’10” with a medium build. He wearing dark pants with a red T-shirt, and if you’ll notice the dark wool hat.’
Boyle said: ‘We don’t know who he is, we don’t know if he’s a fellow jogger, what he’s doing.’
She was beautiful.
I used to do psychic work for the state police on murder cases like this, but stopped as it was too emotionally painful for me to connect with the murdered person.
In the beginning, the hardest part was convincing them that I did not get the information by being involved in the murder.
She was definitely glamorous.
This reminds me of an article in “Runner’s World” which observed that the term “jogger” is used almost exclusively to refer to a runner who has been murdered or died in a sport-related accident.
Give me 3o seconds alone with him and a baseball bat in my hands.
Very pretty lady.
An obama-son or a jihadi? Place your bets ...
Suspect’s name is Chanel Lewis. I earlier guessed the suspect was from Somalia. Well, it seems I got the ‘race’ correct. Any white dudes named ‘Chanel’? I DOUBT IT.
Well oh well, HERE'S THE MURDERER.. I WANT THE IMMIGRATION STATUS ON THIS GUY, CAN ANY FREEPERS GET IT OR KNOW HOW TO? His name is Chanel Lewis:
Oh he’s going with the no shoelaces look, eh?
Also the bullet proof vest look
Yeah, noticed that, too. Another little punk.
