The police just might have a suspect in the murder of Annie Le.
A little more than a day after the grim discovery of Yale University student Annie Le’s body was found, police might just have a suspect. The police are focusing in on a lab tech who failed an FBI lie detector test and had reported scratches on his chest.
With so many cameras, badge access, a confined crime scene and bloody cloths with DNA, the clock is ticking on an arrest.
The employee works in the building where Le’s body was found Sunday stuffed in a wall – the same day she was to be wed.
The man has not been arrested, but is under surveillance, the sources said.
The technician has been questioned several times. The scratches on his chest indicate he was in a struggle, they said.
A New Haven police source said the bloody clothing found in Le’s lab on Saturday “does belong to the likely killer.”
DNA will catch Yale grad student Annie Le’s killer. It always does, unless your name is O.J. Simpson. One really has to wonder how a medical lab tech would mess up by leaving DNA evidence at a crime scene. Should have watched more CSI. Such a mistake would make one think that this was a crime of passion.
He had scratches on his chest, which drew police attention, the sources confirmed. He also took, and failed, an FBI-administered polygraph exam, they said, and at some point during questioning invoked his right to have an attorney and stopped answering questions.
Several hundred people turned out on the Yale campus for the vigil for Annie Le.
It is only a matter of time before charges are filed and there is an arrest in this case.
Police did not deny that they have a suspect; however, no one has been arrested yet in the homicide of Annie Le.
