He said that trooper also noticed the driver matched the profile released in February, which determined the suspect in Marcotte's killing was a Hispanic or Latino man, about 30 years old, with light- to medium-toned skin, an athletic build and is either balding or has short hair.

Marcotte, a 27-year-old former Google employee, was killed while jogging near her mother's house in Princeton on August 7, 2016.

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.

According to police in Princeton, Massachusetts, who have been busy for the last eight months following up on the horrifying August 7 murder, the arrested suspect has been identified as Angel Ortiz, a 31-year-old man from the area. Ortiz has not been charged, but is being held by state police in Millbury.

Marcotte was a Google account manager who lived in New York City at the time of her death.

Marcotte, 27, lived in NY and worked as an account executive at Google.

Emily Truax said she's paid close attention to the "nerve-wracking" case because her best friend lives in the area.

"I think everyone just wants justice for her, so maybe that can start and a little bit of healing can start maybe", one woman said. A K-9 police dog found Marcotte's body about a half-mile from the home, and investigators say she was last seen on Brooks Station Road that afternoon.

Law enforcement agencies have received more than 1,000 tips relating to the case.

Ortiz is scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday in Leominster District Court.
