Surveillance footage of murdered jogger Karina Vetrano, 30, running near her home just moments before she was brutally slain has been released by authorities.

The video shows the young woman jogging toward a trail in Howard Beach, New York City, where she was ruthlessly beaten, sexually assaulted and strangled to death.

Crime Watch Daily obtained the footage of her running less than a mile from her home at 5:46 p.m. on that fateful day, Aug. 2.

Five hours later, her body would be found in the park by a search party and her father, Phil Vetrano, a retired firefighter.

The NYPD has reviewed hundreds of hours of security footage in the hopes of finding the killer. But no apparent suspects have been seen leaving the park and walking on the street, the Daily Mail reports.

Karina’s killer is still believed to be on the loose even after police released on Aug. 31 of a person they'd like to question.

The person in the sketch is wanted by police because a utility worker saw him near the pathway on the afternoon Vetrano was killed.

DNA from Karina’s phone, neck and other body parts were collected and compared to a national database. NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said there have been as yet no matches, reports WPIX.

Phil Vetrano previously implied that he knew who the killer is, advising a relative to call the police.

The family says they have hired private investigators to expand the search. Investigators have already reportedly ruled out a mystery jogger as a suspect in Karina’s death.

The 48-year-old man ran the same route as Vetrano, but disappeared weeks before the murder. Police say he voluntarily came forward after learning about Vetrano’s death and revealed he stopped running due to a knee injury.

As authorities continue to search for the murderer, Vetrano’s family has raised over $272,000 of the $400,000 GoFundMe reward for any information that helps police in the investigation.
