Massachusetts Police looking for dark-colored SUV in Vanessa Marcotte murder case

PRINCETON, Massachusetts (WABC) -- Police in Massachusetts are looking for an SUV that was spotted near the scene where a New York City woman was killed while out jogging by her family's Massachusetts home last August.

Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Early Jr. announced on Wednesday that witnesses reported seeing a dark-colored SUV parked on Brooks Station Road in Princeton around the time of Vanessa Marcotte's murder.

The 27-year-old was in Princeton visiting her mother on August 7th when she went out for an afternoon jog and never returned.

Her body was found later that night in a wooded area about a half mile near her mother's home.

Investigators believe that she struggled with her killer and may have left "scratches, scrapes and/or bruises" on them.
