Turkish police seek clues in NYC woman's death

The Associated Press

Turkey's state-run agency says authorities have finished an autopsy on a New York City woman found dead in Istanbul and DNA evidence from it has been submitted to a crime lab.

The Anadolu Agency also said Monday police were still scouring an area near the remnants of ancient city walls where the body of Sarai Sierra, 33, was found late Saturday.

Sierra went missing Jan. 21 while on vacation alone in Istanbul. Police said she had suffered a fatal blow to the head.

Turkish news reports say a criminal lab will examine samples from Sierra's fingernails as well as hair and other samples from a blanket found near her body.

More than a dozen people were questioned in the case but most of them have been released.
