Police in Turkey say they've found their suspect in the murder of Sarai Sierra, the Staten Island woman who was killed while on vacation.

The man is identified only as "Ziya T".

Turkish officials say he was found near the border with Syria.

News reports out of Turkey describe him as a scrap paper collector who used to hang out around Istanbul's ancient city walls.

Sierra's body was found early last month in Istanbul.

She had gone missing in January.

Investigators say Ziya T's DNA sample matches DNA of blood found on Sierra's shirt and fingernails.
