Body of Missing Yale Student Annie Le Found
Investigators have uncovered a body they assume to be missing Yale student Annie Le, CNN reports.
The remains were found yesterday afternoon inside a wall at 10 Amistad Street, said Peter Reichard, New Haven, Connecticut, assistant police chief. “She hasn’t been positively identified, however, we are assuming that it is her at this time so we are treating it as a homicide investigation,” Reichard said.
Le was last seen on a Yale security camera entering the Amistad medical research building at about 10 a.m. on Tuesday. There is no footage of her ever leaving the building. Investigators spoke with students and others who confirmed she was there. Police say they are still working on removing it from the wall, after which they can properly identify it. Investigators are also testing bloody clothes that were found hidden in ceiling tiles.
Le, 24, was to be married Sunday on Long Island. Her fiance, Jonathan Widawsky, is a graduate student at Columbia University in New York.
“Our hearts go out to Annie Le’s family, fiancé and friends, who must suffer the additional ordeal of waiting for the body to be identified,” said Yale University president Richard Levin. “I have met again with her family and conveyed to them the deeply felt support of the Yale community.”
