Police Begin Distributing New Drawing of .44 Killer

The latest description makes the suspect a little heavier and perhaps a little younger than the man depicted in two earlier police fliers that were widely circulated. The alleged killer was described in the new flyer as a clean-shaven white male, 25 to 32 years old, 5’8’ to 5’9’, 165 to 175 pounds with an athletic build, “dark almond-shaped eyes, dark wavy hair, sensuous mouth, high cheekbones.”

Meanwhile in Central Park, vendors have begun selling “Son of Sam” T-shirts. The white shirts include an earlier police sketch of the suspect and the message: “Son of Sam – Get him before he gets you.”
