Police seek man in connection with burned body

State police are looking for a man who they say was seen near the spot where a woman's burned body was found last weekend.

Investigators have released a sketch of the man they are seeking. He is described as 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, weighing about 200 pounds with a husky build.

Police say the man was spotted near a silver or light gray, four-door sedan in James Baird State Park in Dutchess County. That is where the woman's body was discovered burned last Sunday.

So far, police have not been able to identify the victim. They are asking for the public's help.

"We've had a lot of good feedback and we've been able to rule out a lot of things," says Capt. Lisa Loughran, of the New York State Police.
