Law enforcement officials in Harford County, Maryland, released sketches of a suspect in connection to the murder investigation of Rachel Morin, whose body was found lying in a wooded area on the side of a path in Bel Air back in August.

The Harford County Sheriff's Office said it has been six months now since Morin, a mother of five, was found murdered on the Ma and Pa Heritage Trail. She was found dead on Aug. 6, 2023. The day before, Morin, 37, left for a hike on the trail at about 6:30 p.m.

DNA left at the scene in Maryland matched DNA evidence recovered from an unsolved Los Angeles home invasion and assault of a young girl in March.

Over the past six months, detectives conducted over 100 interviews and followed up on over 1,000 tips, the sheriff’s office said in a social media post.

The mom of five frequently jogged along the Ma & Pa Heritage Trail, which begins behind some businesses with decent foot traffic, including a brewery, a Domino's pizza shop and condominiums. It then leads into some wooded areas and neighborhoods outside of Bel Air, Sheriff Gahler previously told Fox News Digital.
