May 17th 2016 marks the 3rd anniversary of the murder of John (Jack) Fay in Warwick City Park. This tragedy is still being vigorously investigated by the Warwick Police Department.
As part of their investigative effort, Warwick Police requested a Snapshot Phenotype Report from Parabon Nanolabs Inc. be conducted on a DNA sample believed to be from Fay's murderer. The test technology is approximately 4 years old and uses the DNA profile to make an analysis to predict the physical appearance and ancestry of the sample owner. It is commonly used to develop investigative leads, narrowing suspect lists and identifying unknown remains.
This scientifically objective description includes a composite profile with eye color, skin color, hair color, face morphology and detailed biogeographic ancestry. It is important to note that this composite is not necessarily an exact match to the person who committed this crime. This technology uses a baseline age of 25 years and an average BMI (body mass index). It also doesn't predict hair length, facial hair or environmental factors such as dyed hair, body piercings or tattoos.
The release of this information is intended to make the public aware of these scientific predictions in case anyone has information that can relate this Sanpshot Phenotype Report result to the homicide. The release is also intended to keep this crime fresh in people's minds, and to encourage them to contact Warwick Police with any knowledge of possible suspects or circumstances surrounding this murder.
If anyone has information that might be relevant to the case, they should contact Sergeant Canning at 401-468-4236 or Detective John McHale at 401-468-4267. The anonymous TIP line can be reached at 401-732-TIPS.

Preceding the 2016 National Police Memorial week, the Warwick Police Department dedicated a statute and memorial stone to our officers who paid the ultimate sacrifice as a police officer.
Officers John B. Gendron (1902) and Walter G. McQuarry (1911) were both shot and killed in the line of duty. Officer Kenneth R. Fratus (1971), Captain Christopher Feeney (1971) and Officer Donald R. Casasanta (1981) were struck and killed by vehicles in the line of duty.
The vision and completion of this dedication was that of Inspector Christian Mathiesen, a 50 year veteran of the department.
