Worcester District Attorney Joseph Early Jr. says police found the body of 27-year-old Vanessa Marcotte about a half-mile from her mother's home in Princeton on Sunday night after she didn't return from an afternoon walk or jog. He says it appears to be a homicide. Authorities don't know if the attack was random and are asking the public to stay alert and contact them if they see anything unusual.
