QUEENS — Police released a sketch Wednesday of man they say is connected to the explosive package that killed a 73-year-old man.

The man in the sketch may be tied to the death of George Wray, who tried to open the package outside his building on 229th Street, near 147th Avenue, when it detonated about 4:10 p.m. Friday, leaving his face and body severely burned, police said.

Wray was pronounced dead at Nassau University medical Center on Tuesday, police said.
