WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) -- It was a little over a week ago that the body of John (Jack) Fay was found in a trash barrel in City Park in Warwick, and police still have no suspect in custody.
Fay was a retired postal worker and avid runner. He frequented the City Park bike path for use as a running trail.
Police believe the man was running along the path when he was attacked and killed early on Friday, May 17, and believe there may have been a violent struggle.
Runners say that with no suspect in custody, they are taking precautions.
"I don't wear headphones, that way I can hear what's going on, and I have my phone with me at all times" said one runner on Tuesday.
"It's good to see that most of the women who are out here are with another person, a lot of people are in twos," said a man who frequents the park.
There has been an increase in police presence throughout the park, and many who frequent the park seem to be more aware.
Overall, many feel like this was an isolated incident and were surprised hearing of the death, but not overwhelmed.
Police say they have not determined whether this was a targeted or random attack.
