State Police who tirelessly worked through the 1,300 tips over the past eight months, the Princeton Police Department, our families and friends and the townspeople of Princeton who have endured this hardship along with us.

The body of 27-year-old Marcotte was found August 7 in some woods about a half-mile from her mother's house, where the young woman was visiting family.

There is also one other person I'd like to thank in this case, and that would be Vanessa Marcotte. Marcotte, who worked as an account manager for Google in NY, had gone out to run several hours earlier. Police say Marcotte fought her attacker and as a result some of his DNA was on her hands. The DNA was then used to create an eerily accurate physical profile of Colon-Ortiz.

On Saturday, April 15, Angelo Colon-Ortiz, a 31-year-old Worcester man, was arrested in connection with her death.

Current Movers: Marathon Oil Corporation (MRO), Yamana Gold, Inc. (AUY)
The company reported $0.43 earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, beating the consensus estimate of $0.26 by $0.17. Meeder Asset Management Inc. boosted its stake in shares of Marathon Petroleum Corp by 14.4% in the third quarter.

Colon-Ortiz was working in Princeton around the time of the murder, but Early would not say what type of work he was doing, nor would he say where in the Central Massachusetts town he was working.

Early at a weekend press conference credited Marcotte for helping authorities to solve her murder.

After a visit to the driver's address turned up empty, Early said, Parr left his card and asked for a return phone call.

An alert State Police trooper thought he spotted a man who matched the profile and wrote the man's license plate on his hand.

Escape act: LeBron, Cavs edge Pacers 109-108 in Game 1
For Cleveland , meanwhile, it was a game in which it almost wasted a late lead the way it had so many times in the regular season. After dropping their last four and going 10-14 since March 1, the Cavs entered the postseason appearing very vulnerable.

He was being held Saturday at the state police barracks in Millbury on a $10 million bond and is scheduled to appear in Leominster District Court Tuesday.

Troopers arrested Colon-Ortiz late Friday night after they say he willingly provided detectives with a sample of his DNA, which O'Toole says demonstrates Colon-Ortiz's arrogance.

Investigators say Colon-Ortiz did cooperate during his arrest, but has since requested an attorney.
