The Investigation Into Vanessa Marcotte's Murder

PRINCETON, MA-An arrest has been made in connection with the murder of a Princeton jogger a year ago, according to multiple reports.

State police arrested a suspect early Saturday morning, according to the source. There were also signs that she had struggled with her attacker. She was visiting her mother on August 7 when she went out for an afternoon jog and never returned.

"Ms. Marcotte's family waited, waited and hoped", said Col. Rick McKeon of Massachusetts State Police.

"Good afternoon. We got him", Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Early Jr. proclaimed at a news conference Saturday outside the police department in Princeton, a small community of about 3,500 residents in central MA.

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

Although Ortiz has not been formally charged with murder yet, Early said he anticipates a murder charge soon, and referenced Ortiz as Marcotte's "killer". State Police troopers had spoken with Colon-Ortiz earlier in the investigation after observing him in a truck that matched descriptions of a vehicle seen near the crime scene.

The third installment in Sony's animated series made its box office debut in third place with just $ 14 million . Paramount's "Ghost in the Shell" finished fifth with an estimated 7.35 million USA dollars in its second weekend.

The body of Vanessa Marcotte, a Google employee, was found August 7, 2016, in the woods about a half-mile from her mother's home in the town of Princeton, Mass., about 40 miles west of Boston. There is evidence he was in the Princeton area at the time of the murder, but Early declined to go into details.

Marcotte was an account manager for Google in New York City.

Investigators found her body later that evening in a remote, wooded-area naked and partially burned.

Law enforcement agencies have received more than 1,000 tips relating to the case.

He will be arraigned in Leominster District Court on Tuesday.
