There's a new development out of Turkey in the investigation into the murder of a Staten Island woman.

Turkish police are looking for a suspect, identified as "Ziya T".

Reports say the homeless refuse collector was caught on camera selling Sarai Sierra's coat in the same part of Istanbul where her body was found earlier this month, bludgeoned to death.

Police say DNA taken from a bed the suspect slept in matches DNA found under Sierra's nails.
