  • Murdered Yale Student

    They found her body stuffed in a basement space used for wiring.
    There has been no notifications to students or any BOLO's put out, that leads me to suspect that:

    A Police have the suspect in custody.

    B: They don't have him yet, have a great suspect in mind but have him under surveillance.

    Bloody clothes were found in a crawl space that were not the students.

    I think it was a teacher that was infatuated with her. I heard a teacher canceled class abruptly just before it was scheduled to start. She was reported missing right about that time.

    Just my OPINION based on limited knowledge of the case from what I saw on the news.

    (AP)

    Annie Le, 24

    The body of a female graduate student who went missing five days ago has been found hidden inside a cable duct beneath the medical labs at Yale University after a huge campus search by police.

    Annie Le, a 24-year-old pharmacology doctoral student from Placerville, California, was due to have been married yesterday in Syosset, on the north shore of Long Island in New York.

    Police say that they found a large amount of physical evidence near the body of Miss Le, which was located at 5pm last night after a massive search. She was lying in a "chase" - a vertical space used for ducts, pipes or wires - in the basement of the building.

    "The body hasn't been positively identified as of this time. However, we are assuming it is her so we are treating it as a homicide," said Peter Reichard, the New Haven Assistant Police Chief.

    Richard Levin, the President of Yale, offered condolences and support to Jonathan Widawsky, Miss Le's fiance, who is a graduate student at Columbia University.

    Police have said that Mr Widawsky is not a suspect, and is helping the investigation. They refuse to say whether they have any suspects.

    The New York Daily News reported on Satuday that police had questioned an unidentified Yale professor in connection with the case, claiming that MIss Le was the professor’s student and had been due to attend his class on the day she vanished. But the class was abruptly canceled and hours later Miss Le was discovered missing, the newspaper said. Police refused to confirm the report.

    The newspaper also reported that in February Miss Le wrote an article for a Yale medical faculty magazine entitled Crime and Safety in New Haven, about how to stay safe around the Yale campus.

    She warned that New Haven has a higher robbery rate than other cities housing Ivy League universites, and reported on advice from Yale Police Chief James Perrotti to “pay attention to where you are" and “avoid portraying yourself as a potential victim”.

    “In short, New Haven is a city and all cities have their perils,” Miss Le concluded. “But with a little street smarts, one can avoid becoming yet another statistic.”

    Miss Le, a Vietnamese American, was last seen on Tuesday morning in the five-storey medical faculty building that housed the laboratory where she worked, about a mile away from the Ivy League university's main campus.

    Surveillance video shows her arriving at around 10 am, but shows no record of her leaving, despite some 75 surveillance cameras operating around the complex. Her ID, money, credit cards and purse were found in her office in a nearby building.

    More than 100 local, state and federal police had been searching for days, poring over the blueprints of the building to identify any nook where she could be hidden.

    On Saturday there were media reports that the detectives had recovered bloody clothing from the building, allegedly above the false ceiling of the lab, although police spokesmen would not confirm it.

    Yesterday morning, before the find, police were sifting through the rubbish at an incinerator in Hartford, looking for evidence in rubbish taken from the building in the last few days.

    One of Miss Le's housemates described how she had last seen her at about 9am on Tuesday as she headed to the bus stop, wearing the brown skirt and green top that is recorded on the university CCTV camera.

    "I said, 'If I don't see you before Sunday, congratulations and good luck,' " said the housemate, who asked not to be identified because Yale officials have barred university members from speaking to the press about the case. "I do know how very excited she was about the wedding."

    The housemate described Annie as always very well dressed, recalling how she would always hear "the click-clack of her heels" as she walked around.

    "She looked very polished and put together," the housemate said. "She is bubbly and cheerful. She always had a big smile on her face."

    Yesterday Yale students prayed for her safe return at The University Church on Yale’s campus.

    “It has been a week that has tested many people in many different ways,” the Rev. Ian Buckner Oliver said before his sermon. “It has brought up a lot of fears for people. It has brought up a lot of worry and concern for her and for all our safety.”

    The student-dominated congregation offered a moment of silence and prayer, “for Annie, and her family, who have arrived here in New Haven, for her fiance, on this, what would have been their wedding day. Let’s lift them up in our prayers,” Rev Oliver said.
    May Almighty God rest and keep Miss Annie Le.

      Pretty sad. I can't believe someone committed a crime like that in such a secure building with all the cameras and electronic records.

        These buildings aren't as secure as you think and there are still plenty of blind spots that cameras cannot see.

          Just saw that she wrote an article that was published in the Yale medical magazine this year about personal safety in and around the campus. You can read the article here http://bbs.yale.edu/images/B10_1.pdf. Very sad situation. God Bless her and her family.

              How's this for a double (triple) entendre?

              (from Yahoo! News)

              Clues point to inside job in Yale killing (AP)

              This composite photo released by New Haven Police Dept., shows Yale graduate student Annie Le in a video image entering 10 Amistad the morning of her disappearance on the campus at Yale University in new haven, Conn. Sept. 8, 2009. At left is an undated of Le. Police on Sunday said they found what they believe is the body of the graduate student and bride-to-be hidden inside the wall of 10 Amistad, a university building where she was last seen. Clues increasingly pointed to an inside job Monday in the slaying of a Yale graduate student whose body was found stuffed inside a wall five days after she vanished from a heavily secured lab building accessible only to university employees.

                Perhaps a mentally challenged janitor? I mean how bright is it to not realize that the smell won't become noticeable at some point?

                  may not have been too dumb. perp knew itd be hard to get her outside with 75 external cameras or however many there were. anyone with any kind of "large" baggage coming out of the building would be an immediate suspect. he knows he can walk out of the building and have at least a day or 2 to get the heck outa dodge, (or whatever he decided to do) possibly more because it took them this long to find the body. but very, very tragic. this guy needs to rot. too bad hes not in texas.

                      Im going to have assume its an inside job also. A professor, yale university employee. Someone that knows about the blind spots and actually knows a nice spot to dump someone where itll take a while to find.

                      This is definitely an act that wasnt spontaneous

                        I'm sorry but this quote makes me laugh so damn hard:

                        "“In short, New Haven is a city and all cities have their perils,” Miss Le concluded. “But with a little street smarts, one can avoid becoming yet another statistic.”


                        The irony is just too funny.

                        I agree its an inside job. I do believe though that it was somebody she knew.

                            The shame is that a large caliber handgun and the training to use it, and being legally allowed to posses same everywhere is the best deterrent to becoming a casualty. You might become a "statistic" but a good one, yet another armed citizen that successfully defended themselves.

                            Do a google for "Jeffrey Hodge university of Toledo" and you will see a type of suspect left off the list so far...........

                              While being armed is certainly helpful for self defense, your comment is inapt here, because it appears that Ms. Le was killed by someone who likely knew her because they worked in the building.

                              If someone you associate with wants to kill you, having a gun will do you no good. Indeed, if both of you regularly carry guns, you will not be surprised in the least when your friend shows up with one. And he can just shoot you in the back of the head.
