Remarks from Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Early

Massachusetts State Police Media Release – 08112016 – Remarks from District Attorney Early at today’s Press Conference

Good afternoon,

We’ve made some progress in the case. I have a brief statement in Vanessa Marcotte’s homicide.

We believe that there was a struggle between Vanessa and her killer. The assailant, who we know was a man, may have sustained injuries in that struggle, specifically scratches, scrapes and or bruises. Therefore, we would ask that anyone who has observed a male with these types of injuries that would have been fresh earlier this week to please contact us at the State Police Tipline at 508-453-7589.

Also, we are now focusing on a more narrow time frame, between 1 and 3 p.m. on Sunday on Brooks Station Road.  Anyone who observed a vehicle, moving or parked, on that road during the time frame of 1 to 3 p.m. should contact the State Police Tipline at 508-453-7589.
