Less than a week after Karina Vetrano was killed on a jog, New Yorker Vanessa Marcotte, 27, suffered a similar fate while running in Massachusetts last August, where she was visiting family. Her naked body was later located near her mother's home in Princeton, with burns to the face, hands and feet.
Now, authorities have announced they have a person of interest in the Google employee's brutal murder case.
Investigators are currently seeking a Hispanic or Latino man, about 30 years old, with an athletic build and average height and a shaved head or very short hair, Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early, Jr. said Thursday morning at a news conference.
"We’re very confident in the description that I’ve given you today that this is our person of interest," he said.
Early later added that DNA found on Marcotte did not match the DNA discovered in Vetrano's case, whose suspected killer has been announced as 20-year-old Chanel Lewis of Brooklyn.
In Marcotte's case, police do not yet have a name for their person of interest.
