"Human Remains" Found Inside Yale Medical Building Believed to be Missing Grad Student - Video 9/13/09
Here is a breaking news video report tonight on the discovery of "human remains" inside a wall in the basement of the Yale University Medical Building. The remains are believed to be that of Yale Grad student Annie Le who has been missing since last Tuesday, when she was last seen entering the medical building:
Investigators found the remains of a woman they assume is missing Yale graduate student Annie Le, a senior police official said Sunday.
The remains were found 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. Authorities have not found images of her leaving the building. Investigators said they had spoken with students and others in the building who confirmed she was there.
Police discovered the body in the basement Sunday afternoon, said Yale University President Richard Levin in a statement to the campus community.
Police plan to work through the night to remove the unidentified body, which is still in the wall, police spokesman Joe Avery told CNN.
Le, 24, was to be married Sunday in Long Island, New York. Her fiance, Jonathan Widawsky, is a graduate student at Columbia University in New York. . . MORE
