Massachusetts detectives are investigating a suspicious SUV that was parked near the site where police discovered the body of a 27-year-old Google employee in August, authorities said.
New York City resident, Vanessa Marcotte, 27, was found dead in the woods after jogging near her mother’s home in Princeton, Mass., on Aug. 7, authorities said.
A witness parked on Brooks Station Road saw the dark-colored vehicle, the same day of Marcotte’s disappearance. Officials believe it had been parked when the murder occurred, according to a statement released by the Massachusetts State Police.
Vanessa Marcotte, 27, a Google employee from New York City, was found dead after going out for a jog in Princeton, Mass.
The Worcester County District Attorney’s Office and Princeton Police investigating Marcotte’s murder have received more than 1,000 tips since the slaying, but none have led to an arrest.
Marcotte’s mother reported her daughter missing after she failed to return home from her afternoon jog, police said.

Another avid jogger, Karina Vetrano, 30, of Queens, was brutally beaten and raped in Howard Beach on Aug. 2 before her killer strangled her to death, police sources said.
