    Investigators have released a flyer featuring a new clue in the unsolved case of a teenager who stepped on an explosive device in Central Park and lost part of his leg.

    The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives released an image of a clear shopping bag on Tuesday, the second anniversary of the explosion. They say the device that injured 19-year-old Connor Golden, of Fairfax, Virginia, was in the bag.

    Golden was at the park on July 3, 2016, when he stepped on a rock covering the device. His left leg was later amputated below the knee.

    Police are offering a $40,000 reward for information about the crime.

    The bag pictured in the new flyer is from a New Jersey baker called La Unica.
