Police investigating the murder of a 30-year-old jogger in Howard Beach found a used condom and wrapper discarded near the desolate path where the woman’s body was found, sources said.
The potential evidence was discovered late Wednesday at the entrance to the dirt path near 159th Avenue and 78th Street.
Investigators are also interviewing several known sex offenders who live in the area as well as homeless vagrants who live in the park.
Victim Karina Vetrano was known to run along the path inside Spring Creek Park with her father, Philip Vetrano, a retired firefighter.
But when her dad decided not to run with her Tuesday to nurse a back injury, she set out alone around 5 p.m.
Police were alerted a few hours later when Vetrano became frantic that his daughter hadn’t come home. The cops tracked her cellphone to a marshy area in the park.
Roughly 20 minutes later, a helicopter circling overhead shined a light on a patch of tall weeds about 20 feet off the path —and Vetrano’s father ran to the spot, sources said.
He found his daughter face down off 165th Avenue and 78th Street, about 20 feet from the path.
The investigation is ongoing.
