N.Y. deputy honored for finding DNA leading to alleged Bike Path Killer
By Maki Becker
BUFFALO, N.Y. — It was a grueling and tedious task: combing over every inch of murder victim Joan Diver's Ford Explorer in search of some clue, however small, as to who killed the mother of four.
Erie County Sheriff's Deputy James A. Mirusso was among a team of law enforcement officers who pored over the sport utility vehicle that had been found a couple of miles from where police believe Diver parked it before going on her fateful run on the Clarence/Newstead bike path.
