$25,000 reward offered in murder investigation

Warwick police said Thursday that a $25,000 reward is being offered for information in an unsolved killing.

Police said John "Jack" Fay was killed in a violent attack early May 17 while taking his daily jog through Warwick City Park. Fay's body was found the next day in a trash barrel covered by brush.

Fay, 66, was a retired postal worker.

Police said the attacker or attackers may have had injuries to their face, hands and arms and that they may have had a poison ivy outbreak about a week after Fay's killing.
