Yale graduate student Annie Le had been missing for five days before authorities found what is believed to be her body.
Police found a body Sunday behind a basement wall in the Yale research facility. Police believe it to be Annie Le, a Yale student who was missing for the past five days. The case has now been ruled as a homicide and will be investigated by the New Haven Police Department. Seeing as the building is only accessible to students with magnetic entry cards, people believe the crime was committed by someone who had access to the building. University President Richard Levin says:
“The investigation will continue,” Levin said, adding that authorities are conducting an autopsy and identification of the remains. “We have every hope that it will be successfully resolved.”
Police first learned Annie was missing after her roommate reported her missing last Tuesday. She was set to be married to her fiance Jonathan Widawsky yesterday; friends and supporters left wedding gifts outside of Jonathan’s home.
