Subway death suspect shown

New York police have released surveillance video of the woman suspected of pushing a man to his death in front of a subway train, the second such crime in the city this month.

The video shows the woman running from the elevated platform. Witnesses told police she had been following the man closely and mumbling to herself.

She got up from a nearby bench and shoved him as the train pulled in.

Police said the condition of the man's body was making it difficult to identify him.
