Betty on the News: Police Preparing to Make Arrest in Yale Student Murder
Annie Le’s autopsy results will be made public today
A spokeswoman for the chief state medical examiner’s office has told The Associated Press that Annie Le’s autopsy results will be released shortly after 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday.
The authorities are reportedly getting ready to make an arrest in the Yale University grad student’s slaying, which took place last week and was confirmed on Sunday.
The state chief’s medical examiner ruled Annie’s death a homicide Monday, but the office opted to withhold the info in order to aid the federal investigation.
New Haven police are presently focusing their sights on an unidentified Yale lab technician, who was allegedly in love with the 24-year-old student whose body was found stuffed behind a basement wall in a school lab.
The technician brought attention to himself after the killing as he had scratches on his chest which could very well have been linked to a struggle. What’s more, he failed a polygraph exam issued by the FBI.
On Monday Yale president Richard Levin said the authorities have narrowed the number of suspects down to a tiny pool, since building security cameras recorded who walked into the lab and at what times they entered.
Police are examining what they refer to as “a large amount” of psychical evidence, though they have refused to go into detail. (The New York Post)
