“Ray Clark”

Clark, 24, works as an animal tech in the lab where Le was found dead on Sunday.

Police found the 24-year-old pharmacology student’s body stuffed in a wall in the lab on Sunday – what would have been her wedding day.

Police are looking for Clark, who was not home Tuesday as swarms of cops descended on his apartment about 20 miles from Yale’s campus.

Clark did not show up for work – and neither did his sister, brother-in-law or fiance, all of whom work for Yale, the Yale Daily News reports.

According to reports from neighbors, Raymond Clark and his girlfriend left Sunday around the same time that Annie Le’s body was discovered.

Neighbors say they saw Clark and his girlfriend, Jennifer Hromadka, leaving with suitcases on Sunday around the time cops found Le’s body.

“I saw them leaving this weekend with travel bags like they were in a hurry,” said a 35-year-old neighbor who lives in the same Middletown apartment building.

She and another neighbor said the couple climbed in the back seat of a Ford that had two adults in the front.
“I thought they were going on vacation,” the neighbor said.

      This makes even more sense than releasing the guy. Everyone is paniced so let’s play macho and hold back info because you don’t like the way the press behaved. What is going on in this case?

      “New Haven police said they would restrict information even more in coming days after an NBC producer was injured Tuesday as reporters outside the police department pushed to surround a spokesman during a briefing.”

      All right, all right.

      I MIGHT have been wrong on two of my predictions about the profile of Ms. Le’s attacker.

      And for this I humbly apologize.

      IF the evidence portends that Ray Clark was the killer then I admit that I jumped the gun on my predictions. My deepest apologies to anyone I may have offended.
