Authorities believe a man seen in surveillance video in a home invasion and assault of a girl in Los Angeles in March killed a 37-year-old mother of five while she hiked on a trail thousands of miles away in Maryland last weekend.

Rachel Morin went out for a run on Aug. 5 and didn’t come back. The Harford County Sheriff’s Office released a video showing the suspect they believe killed Morin, and officials called for anyone who can identify him to come forward.

“Everyone with the same goal — find the killer and bring justice to Rachel,” Colonel William Davis said during a news conference.

Authorities said DNA evidence came back as a match tied to the LA case this past March, but unfortunately, that suspect has not been identified, Davis said.

“Based on the DNA evidence, we consider the individual and the video we obtained from the Los Angeles Police Department and that we are about to show you on our TV screens to be the person that murdered Rachel Moran on August 5th,” he said.

Officials believe the culprit is between 5 foot 9, 160 pounds and of Hispanic descent.

Authorities believe the man acted alone and didn’t represent the entire Hispanic community of Harford County.

Rachel Morin, a 37-year-old mother of five, called out the unknown “heinous coward” that authorities believe killed Morin along the Ma & Pa Heritage Trail in Bel Air.

Earlier this week, authorities said they were working around the clock to piece together a comprehensive timeline of the “days, hours, minutes, and seconds before Rachel died,” the sheriff said.
