Some more news on the investigation of Annie Le:

Lab technician in custody in Annie Le slaying

Police and FBI agents staged a dramatic raid on the home of a Yale University animal research technician Tuesday night, seeking evidence that might tie him to the slaying of graduate student Annie Le, whose body was found stuffed behind a wall in a campus research building.

No charges were filed against Raymond Clark III, 24, but police took him into custody while searching for DNA and other physical evidence. Police said Clark would be released after they obtained evidence from him and his apartment.
Friends remember Annie Le's humor and intelligence

Annie Le, whose body was found on the day she planned to wed, was mourned Monday by family members and friends from her hometown in the scenic Sierra Nevada foothills as smart and vibrant, kind and funny. The Yale University graduate student of Vietnamese heritage grew up in a remote, hilly area off a twisting, one-lane gravel road with an aunt and uncle she regarded as parents. Her brother remembered her on Facebook as someone who "left this world doing what she loved."

"She may be small, but she be fierce," Chris Le wrote of his 24-year-old sister, who was pursuing a degree in pharmacology. "Stuck in a 4' 11" frame, she had a 7' tall personality. She will always live on through us."
Police Serve Search Warrant In Annie Le Case

Police Chief James Lewis said at a press conference Tuesday night that police executed a search warrant for the Middletown apartment of Raymond Clark III, a "person of interest" in the slaying of Yale student Annie Le. "We took him into custody to gather evidence from his body and his person," Lewis said. "If he cooperates he'll be released this evening."

Lewis said the search warrant was for Apt. 1A at 40 Ferry St. in Middletown, where at 10:16 p.m. about 20 New Haven, state and federal law enforcement officers, armed with the search warrant, entered 40 Ferry St.
Hopefully they can put this case to rest soon so the family can at least try and find the beginning of some sort of closure.
