"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.

"Good afternoon. We got him", Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Early Jr. proclaimed at a news conference Saturday outside the police department in Princeton, a small community of about 3,500 residents in central MA.

Early said the person of interest was driving a dark-colored SUV in the area of Marcotte's death about the time she was reported missing in Princeton, Massachusetts.

Police said throughout the investigation they believed Marcotte fought her attacker and the suspect had scratches on his face, neck and arms.

The 27-year-old Marcotte grew up in nearby Leominster (LEH'-mihn-stur).

Sources said the suspect, arrested overnight, is 31-year-old Angel Cordero Ortiz. According to a WCVB report in February, her hands, feet and part of her head had been burned.
