  • DNA Profile Reveals Person of Interest in Jogger's Murder

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.

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

Authorities announced at a press conference Saturday afternoon that they had arrested 31-year-old Angel Colon-Ortiz in connection with the crime.

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

Authorities used a DNA sample found in the woods and witness statements to create a description for a "person of interest", Worcester District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr. A dark-colored SUV was seen in the area around the time Marcotte was killed, Early said.

Marcotte, 27, was an account manager at Google based in NY who had gone to visit her mother's home last summer in Princeton, Massachusetts. "It was through her determined fight and her efforts that we obtained the DNA of her killer".

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

Marcotte was always encouraging McNiff to get out for training runs when they lived together, often joining her for a few miles. 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.

Unable to find a piece of paper, Early said the trooper wrote down the vehicle's license plate number on his hand.

Colon-Ortiz was picked up from his residence in Worcester late on Friday night, placed under arrest this morning, and is being held at the Millbury State Police barracks pending arraignment at Leominster District Court on Tuesday.

Police have said Marcotte was likely attacked between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. local time on August 7.
