Marcotte's best friend Ashley McNiff will be running this year's Boston Marathon in honor of her friend. One resident expressed relief that the suspect had been arrested. “I live in town and I'm a runner. My heart just goes out to this family and I'm relieved that they found someone,” the resident said.
