While the police comb for clues in the disappearance of Laura Garza
, their prime suspect, Michael Mele, faces new charges of public masturbation in New Jersey. The Paramus police issued a warrant based on DNA evidence made available by the Garza investigation to match Mele to a 2005 case in which a heretofore unidentified male ejaculated onto a public bench
on which a child was sitting, says the New York Times
. Mele, now in custody in Rockland County, is on probation for a separate 2007 PM incident at the Palisades Center Mall.
