'We Got Him': Cops Say DNA Links Suspect to Slain Jogger

Worcester District Attorney Joseph Early Jr. said back in August that 27-year-old Vanessa Marcotte was reported missing after failing to return from a Sunday afternoon walk in Princeton.

Marcotte grew up in Leominster and was working as an account manager for Mountain View, California-based Google in NY. "We're very confident that we got Vanessa Marcotte's killer". Police said her body was naked and partially burned. The DNA was used to help create a profile of a suspect, which was released two months ago. Early said he anticipates a murder charge against Colon-Ortiz, who is expected to be arraigned Tuesday. The announcement comes almost two months after the district attorney said a DNA profile of a suspect had been developed.

Mr. Colon-Ortiz, meanwhile, is being held on $1 million bail at Massachusetts State Police barracks in Millbury pending an arraignment hearing now scheduled for Tuesday.
