NEW YORK – Actor Donnie Wahlberg posted a touching tribute to slain Queens jogger Karina Vetrano on social media over the weekend.

“I’ve met thousands of amazing New Yorkers while filming Blue Bloods, none were as kind as Vetrano,” Wahlberg, who stars for the New York City-based CBS drama “Blue Bloods,” wrote on Twitter Saturday.

“To those lucky enough to be walking the face of the earth today– cherish every moment, feel every breath & respect every other human being,” he added.

Vetrano was sexually assaulted and strangled when she went on a run in a marshland near her Howard Beach home on Aug. 2. Her father, along with police, found her body a few hours later.

The NYPD is still looking for her killer and is offering up to a $10,000 reward for clues.
