Arrest Made in Mass. Jogger Murder Case

A man arrested in connection with the death of a New York City woman jogging near her mother's MA home last summer was tied the crime scene through DNA and cellphone evidence, as well as eyewitness reports, prosecutors said Tuesday.

Colon-Ortiz has not been charged with murder, though the district attorney said at a news conference, "we got him".

Angelo Colon-Ortiz, 31, of Worcester, was arraigned Tuesday in connection with the murder of Vanessa Marcotte.

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. When she failed to return home, Marcotte's mother called police.

"He looked at the driver of the vehicle and it matched our suspect". Marcotte's alleged killer remained free until Friday, when he was arrested after a DNA test found a match.

Today's Easter Egg Dash Postponed to Thursday
Morris Lions Club members help the Easter bunny scatter more than 8,000 plastic Easter eggs filled with wrapped sweets . Easter is upon us, and organizations in and around Sabetha have activities planned to enhance the celebration.

According to the Globe, a state trooper spotted a Hispanic man driving a black SUV in Worcester. When Colon-Ortiz didn't respond, the trooper later returned to the home and obtained a voluntary DNA sample from Colon-Ortiz. An alert state trooper spotted Colon-Ortiz while on another assignment.

Authorities say Marcotte fought her attacker and DNA taken from her hands helped solve the case.

Worcester County district attorney Joseph Early Jr. said Marcotte put up a fight during her deadly assault, which helped police piece together a profile of her murderer.

They said he worked for FedEx and would occasionally drive routes through the Princeton area, although he is not believed to have been working at the time of the offense.

Ryan told reporters after the arraignment that because of a language barrier Colon-Ortiz may not have understood what he was doing when he submitted a buccal swab to investigators.

Trump takes aim at H-1B visa program
But they are confident that greater "engagement" with the Trump administration will help soften their stance towards H-1B visas. Meanwhile, news came out Tuesday morning that applications for first-time H-1B visas have dropped dramatically this year.

Prosecutors have been in touch with federal immigration officials to determine Ortiz-Colon's immigration status.

Ortiz-Colon moved to MA from Puerto Rico about a year ago and there is "no question" he is a US citizen, Ryan said.

Speaking before the hearing, the suspect's lawyer said his client has no criminal record and the case is no slam dunk. State Police spokesman David Procopio told the newspaper that the Department of Homeland Security "has no file" on Colon-Ortiz.

"To this point, we have no information that suggests he is in the country illegally". He had no criminal history in MA or Puerto Rico.

A suspect now in custody has brought the family some peace, Tocci said, but she added, "Our goal now is just helping other women who are in these situations".
