On May 17th 2013 John Fay was murdered while jogging through Warwick City Park.

Near the scene of the crime police found a ten inch, two-and a half pound sledge hammer.

They’ve now released photos of the hammer, in the hope that the public can help identify the owner or provide any other information about the tool.

Police say because the investigation is ongoing, they will not release information as to whether hammer was used in the crime.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Warwick Police.
