Police have released surveillance video of a person they believe is connected to the kidnapping and killing of Brooklyn resident Menachem Stark.
Investigators say that the video shows the person just hours before Stark was snatched off the street late last Thursday.
The person leaves and walks to the corner of Rutledge Street and Broadway in Williamsburg, a half block from where the kidnapping took place.
The person then walks back to the van, which appears to be the same van in which police say Stark was forced into later that night.
The 39-year-old Stark's body was later found in a Long Island dumpster.
Reward for information leading to any arrests is now more than $70,000.
"The most important thing is that we hope that people have now something on what to focus, and they will start thinking about it, think about the reward, and that was the idea, that we increase the reward with another $25,000," said Rabbi David Niederman of the United Jewish Organizations of Williamsburg.
Stark was a well-known businessman in Williamsburg and a father of seven.
