Vanessa Marcotte Arrest Made In Murder Of Jogger

Mr. Colon-Ortiz, meanwhile, is being held on $1 million bail at Massachusetts State Police barracks in Millbury pending an arraignment hearing now scheduled for Tuesday. DA Early said an alert state trooper in Worcester saw a man and a vehicle that matched the Marcotte murder suspect's description, and did a cheek DNA swab test that eventually led to Ortiz's arrest.

Marcotte, a 27-year-old former Google employee, was killed while jogging near her mother's house on August 7, 2016.

"It was through [Marcotte's] fight and her efforts that we obtained the DNA of her killer", Early said. There were also signs that she had struggled with her attacker.

It's tough to forget one of the biggest, saddest viral stories we covered last year: the horrifying, grisly murder of 27-year-old Vanessa Marcotte.

The DNA match linking Ortiz to the Marcotte case came back Friday afternoon.

It appeared to plunk into Rae's Creek but clung to the far bank, allowing him to chip it inches from the pin for a tap-in birdie. They wound up tied for the lead Saturday on a tense afternoon that set the stage for a Masters finale that's up for grabs.

Angelo Colon-Ortiz was arrested in Worcester early Saturday morning after DNA from a cheek swab test that he consented to matched DNA collected from Vanessa Marcotte's hands during her autopsy.

Officials are holding a news conference to discuss new developments in the case of a New York City woman killed while out running near her mother's MA home last summer.

Emily Truax said she's paid close attention to the "nerve-wracking" case because her best friend lives in the area. Early said Colon-Ortiz, who speaks limited English, has requested an attorney. She never returned, and her body was found that night in a wooded area about a half mile from her mother's house.

Authorities received thousands of tips related to the case.

He is being held in police custody and will be arraigned in Leominster District Court.
