Warwick police on Wednesday renewed their plea to the public to come forward with any information related to the killing of a 66-year-old man last year.

Jack Fay was killed while jogging through Warwick City Park during the early morning hours of May 17, 2013. His body was found alongside a jogging path where a growing memorial now sits.

"We are looking for that one piece of the puzzle that will hopefully bring this case to a conclusion and put closure to the family," said Detective Sgt. Mark Canning of the Warwick Police Department.

A bench dedicated to Fay sits adjacent to the path.

"It's members of the community who may not have known Jack Fay or his family who take pride in the park and in the location and with the upkeep of the flowers and the bench. It says a great deal about the members of this community," said Lt. David DeAngelis of the Warwick Police Department.

Police told NBC 10 that the investigation is ongoing and are asking the public to contact them with any information about the case. Tips can be directed to Canning at 401-468-4236 or through the department's tips line at 401-732-8477.

Saturday will mark the anniversary of Fay's death. Police said the case remains a priority for the department.
