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

Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Early Jr. scheduled a 2 p.m. press conference Saturday, after TV news stations reported an arrest related to the slaying of Leominster native Vanessa Marcotte, who was murdered August 7 while jogging near her mother's home.

The suspect's name is Angel C. Ortiz, and according to a source, he's being held at the Massachusetts State Police Millbury Barracks.

The strike was the first time American forces targeted a Syrian government installation in the course of the war. Putin said that the US missile attacks were an "unacceptable move" which strengthens the terrorists.

DNA evidence and an attentive state trooper helped find the man authorities believe killed a New York City woman last summer who was out jogging near her mother's MA home, authorities said Saturday.

Colon-Ortiz is facing charges of aggravated assault, aggravated assault and battery, and assault with intent to rape. Her body was located the next day less than a mile from her mother's home.

She had gone out for a jog in August of 2016 when she was visiting her family in Princeton, but never returned.

Marcos Alonso: 'We knew we needed to beat Bournemouth'
CHELSEA striker Diego Costa has thrown fresh doubt over his long term future by suggesting he is unhappy with life in London. His record in 2017 now stands at three League goals in 10 matches.

The 27-year-old Google accounts manager was slain within a week of Queens resident Karina Vetrano's murder. DA Early said an alert state trooper in Worcester saw a man and a vehicle that matched the Marcotte murder suspect's description, and did a cheek DNA swab test that eventually led to Ortiz's arrest. Witnesses reported seeing a dark-colored SUV parked in the area around the time of Marcotte's murder.

The suspect's DNA is a 1:108 quintillion match to that found on Marcotte's hands when she fought her killer last summer.

Authorities received thousands of tips related to the case.
