Arrest Made In Murder Of Princeton Jogger Vanessa Marcotteā€

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

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".

"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.

In February, investigators said they had compiled a DNA profile of Marcotte's killer. He eventually obtained a DNA sample from the driver, identified as Ortiz, and it was a match. He is being held at Massachusetts State Police barracks in Millbury on $1 million bail.

Angelo Colon-Ortiz, 31, was arrested late Friday and faces charges of aggravated assault and assault with intent to rape, according to Early. Her body was found naked and burned the following day just a half mile away from her mother's home.

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

"Vanessa Marcotte was a much loved member of the Google team, working in our NY office for the a year ago and a half, and known for her ubiquitous smile, passion for volunteer work, and love of Boston sports", a Google spokesperson said.

On Saturday, Early said DNA taken from Marcotte's hands during an autopsy helped solve the case. Scientists at the private Parabon NanoLab crafted the profile, describing a 30-year-old Hispanic or Latino man with an athletic build and very short hair. They added that the suspect was likely the same person driving a dark-colored SUV in the area around the time Marcotte was murdered.
