    ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP)  One month after the tires on 87 private airplanes were slashed at a small airport in Alaska's largest city, police publicly released grainy surveillance images Friday showing what they are calling a person of interest in the unsolved case.

    The four images show a figure dressed in dark clothing and wearing a backpack near airplanes recorded around 1:20 a.m. June 2 at Merrill Field in Anchorage. The person in the image is shown on foot near airplanes in three of the images, and at a gate in the fourth.

    There have been no arrests or suspects identified by police or the FBI, which is assisting in the investigation.

    But the consensus among many affected pilots is that this was no ordinary vandalism spree, but a carefully planned and orchestrated mission.
