The prime suspect in the murder of a Julliard student whose body was discovered in Inwood Hill Park last spring is a man who lives nearby, the Manhattan district attorney has confirmed.
D.A. Robert Morgenthau says that the investigation of the strangling of 21-year-old Sarah Fox is focusing on Dimitri Sheinman but that there is not enough evidence to charge him.
Sheinman, a 39-year-old married father, told the Daily News he is innocent. The News cites sources as saying that Sheinman told police about details of the crime that were never made public, and he claimed to have “visions” that could help solve the murder.
Fox’s roommate reported her missing on May 19 when she did not return to their Upper Manhattan apartment from a late afternoon jog. Her naked body was discovered six days later in a secluded part of Inwood Hill Park.
