The Investigation Into Vanessa Marcotte's Murder

DA Early said an alert state trooper in Worcester saw a man and a auto that matched the Marcotte murder suspect's description, and did a cheek DNA swab test that eventually led to Ortiz's arrest.

Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Early Jr.'s office said they will hold a press conference outside the Princeton Police Station at 2 p.m. Saturday about the new developments in the case. Early said they expect to add murder charges soon. Her body was found naked and burned the following day just a half mile away from her mother's home.

Recently, "an alert state trooper" noticed a man matching the description driving a dark SUV in Worcester, said Early.

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. "Not having a piece of paper immediately at his disposal, he wrote the license plate number down on his hand", he said.

He is charged with aggravated assault, aggravated assault and battery, and assault with intent to rape.

Police sources have told ABC News there were signs Marcotte was sexually assaulted and that there were burns on parts of her body.

Marcotte was an account manager for Google in New York City.

Police later visited the driver's residence, and eventually obtained a voluntary DNA sample through a mouth swab.

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.

Police have said Marcotte was likely attacked between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. local time on August 7.

The DNA match linking Ortiz to the Marcotte case came back Friday afternoon. She enjoyed running as a meditative activity, her friends and family said.
