Arrest made in connection to murder of Princeton jogger Vanessa Marcotte

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.

County District Attorney's office announced they will speak with media at 2 p.m. Saturday.

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

Police said throughout the investigation they believed Marcotte fought her attacker and the suspect had scratches on his face, neck and arms.

Her body was found the next day less than a mile from her mothers home.

After information was put out to the public recently about a possible suspect, a state trooper noticed a driver of a dark SUV in Worcester, Massachusetts, who matched the description of the suspect, Early said at the press conference Saturday.

POLICE have arrested a man in relation to the death of jogger Vanessa Marcotte, a Google executive who went missing in August a year ago. He is facing charges of aggravated assault, aggravated assault and battery as well as assault with intent to rape, Early said, noting that a murder charge is also expected to be added. "Not having a piece of paper immediately at his disposal, he wrote the license plate number down on his hand", he said.

Early has said, "we haven't ruled anything out", in regard to the similarities in the two cases.

Marcotte was an account manager for Google in New York City. Colon-Ortiz is being held at the Millbury State Police Barracks and will be arraigned on Tuesday. When Colon-Ortiz didn't respond, the trooper later returned to the home and obtained a voluntary DNA sample from Colon-Ortiz.

Authorities received thousands of tips related to the case. Police said her body was naked and partially burned.
