Arrest made in connection to murder of Princeton jogger Vanessa Marcotte

Arrest made in connection to murder of Princeton jogger Vanessa Marcotte

Colon-Ortiz is being held at the Millbury State Police Barracks and will be arraigned on Tuesday.

The arrest of Colon-Ortiz came after police developed a description of a suspect based on tips, and a state trooper stopped an SUV being driven by a man who matched the description. Her body was later found in the woods less than a mile from the home.

Police released a DNA profile of her suspected killer in late February in hopes it would lead them to a person of interest.

Investigators reported that Marcotte likely fought back during the struggle with her assailant and that the murder would likely have sustained scratches or scrapes to their head, neck, hands, and upper arms during the attack.

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. It was because Marcotte fought against her attacker that police were able to find him. That sample was determined to be a match on Friday and Colon-Ortiz was subsequently arrested.

The officials also seized his mobile phone, targeting his network of contacts regardless of whether they were gay or not. Natalia Poplevskaya of the Russian LGBT Network said "we are working to evacuate people", according to BBC .

The suspect, identified as Angelo Colon-Ortiz, 31, was taken into custody early Saturday in Worcester.

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.

Police said that Ortiz, who needs an interpreter for communication, is being cooperative. She enjoyed running as a meditative activity, her friends and family said.

She went out for a jog at about 1 p.m. on August 7 along Brooks Station Road and when she didn't return, her family contacted police.
