Officials announced Saturday that they have arrested a man in connection with the murder of a New York City woman killed while running near her mother's MA home last summer. There were also signs that she had struggled with her attacker.

An arrest has been made in connection to the murder of Vanessa Marcotte back in August of 2016.

The 31-year-old is reportedly at the Massachusetts State Police barracks in Millbury, NBC Boston reported, on $1 million bail.

"Ms. Marcotte's family waited, waited and hoped", said Col. Rick McKeon of Massachusetts State Police.

"We got him", Worcester District Attorney Joseph Early Jr. said Saturday afternoon during authorities' official announcement. DNA from a possible suspect was obtained during Marcotte's autopsy, and on Friday, state police learned of a DNA match. Early says more charges are expected.

The bulk of Elliott's BHP Billiton shareholding is in the United Kingdom -listed arm, in which it holds a stake of 4.1 per cent. The Company is a producer of various commodities, including iron ore, metallurgical coal, copper and uranium.

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

Using a police K-9 unit, Marcotte's body was found at about 8:30 p.m., less than half a mile from her mother's home.

He added that the DNA was not the same as the DNA in the case of Karina Vetrano, a jogger who was killed in New York City days before Marcotte died.

For more than eight months law enforcement have been looking for the murderer of the Google account executive whose body was found on August 7, 2016, in the woods off Brooks Station Road in Princeton. Police said her body was naked and partially burned.
