Police have released additional images of the man they believe beat 35-year-old Bay Ridgite Jennifer Cohen to death in Owl’s Head Park last month.

He was the last person seen with her — walking down Second Avenue toward the park at 2:45 am, cops said.

A jogger found Cohen’s lifeless body — her face beaten in — hours later around 9 am, police said. She was also found with hypodermic needles in her nearby purse, though it appears the death was a homicide, officials said.

The suspect is 5-foot-8, about 175 pounds, and was last seen wearing a black jacket with white trim, black shorts with white trim, dark sneakers, and a dark baseball cap, police said.

Police are asking anyone with information regarding the incident to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at or by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577.
