TERRIBLE, JUST TERRIBLE!!!
27 year-old Vanessa Marcotte was last seen 1 p.m. Sunday, August 7, 2016 when she went for a run in Princeton, Mass. Sadly, the Mass. State Police K-9 unit found her body about a half mile from her mother’s house. Marcotte was found with burns on her head and feet. NewsCenter 5 reported that it was not immediately clear if Marcotte was assaulted, but she was naked. Obviously the savage who did this was looking to erase any evidence by burning her body. Maybe we can do the same to the individual responsible for this heinous crime.
Say a prayer for the family during this difficult time.
A New York City woman visiting family in Princeton was found dead after going jogging, according to Mass. State Police.
Police said 27-year-old Vanessa Marcotte was last seen 1 p.m. Sunday when she went for a run. A Mass. State Police K-9 unit found her body about a half mile from her mother’s house.
A source told FOX25 that Marcotte was found with burns on her head and feet. Investigators are examining the possibility that Marcotte was sexually assaulted and then set on fire.
After a search with K-9s by Princeton and state police, crews found the woman slain Sunday night in a heavily wooded area about a half mile from her mother’s home, reports CBS Boston. Investigators believe the woman was killed sometime between 1 p.m. that day — when she left her mother’s home– and 4 p.m.
There’s no word on Marcotte’s cause of death or a possible suspect.
Officials say they don’t know whether the crime was a random one. They’re asking residents to be careful and to jog or walk in pairs.
“Right now we have an active homicide investigation going on, you can’t be too careful,” Worcester District Attorney Joseph Early, Jr. said in a press conference Monday.
The murder comes less than a week after another young woman, Karina Vetrano, 30, was slain while jogging in Queens, New York. Police in New York City say they believe the crime is random, and are still searching for her killer.
