Vanessa Marcotte, 27, was jogging near her mother’s Massachusetts home in August 2016 when she disappeared. The young Google sales manager’s body was found. Police say she was murdered and sexually assaulted. She fought her killer, leaving DNA evidence on her hands. Laboratory analysis of the DNA indicated that her attacker was a Hispanic male. That information, as well as eyewitness reports of a vehicle seen in the vicinity at the time of Marcotte’s killing, eventually led police to Angelo Colon-Ortiz. A married 31-year-old Federal Express employee, Colon-Ortiz had only recently moved to Massachusetts from his native Puerto Rico.

Colon-Ortiz was arrested Saturday and arraigned this morning on charges of aggravated assault, aggravated assault and battery and assault with intent to rape. He is being held on $10 million bond. Officials say that they later expect to charge Colon-Ortiz with murder.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, but feminists haven’t mentioned the arrest of Angelo Colon-Ortiz, for some reason.
