SCHENECTADY, N.Y. - Schenectady police have released an image of a sterling silver rosary that went missing from the home of a retired nun found murdered in her home on New Year's Day.

Police say 82-year-old Mary Greco was given the rosary less than a week before she was found killed inside 1402 Stanford Street. Police say the homicide occurred sometime during the last weekend of December 2012.

This rosary features 8mm Swarovski Amethyst crystal beads and a sterling silver crucifix and center. The crucifix measures 2 inches.

Anyone with information on its whereabouts is asked to call the Schenectady Police Department Detectives Division at 518-382-5245 x5617 or the Tips Line at 518-788-6566.

Schenectady police were questioning a parolee, who has been arrested and is being held on unrelated charges, on the homicide of Mary Greco.

Police say Greco was a retired nun and her neighbors describe her as a kind and caring person.

She was a frequent attendee of Saint Luke's Church on State Street. The pastor at Saint Luke's tells NEWS10 Mary had a passion for helping people. "How sad that a kind soul like her would meet such a violent end," he said.
