Clues point to inside job in Yale killing

Police yesterday sought to calm fears on the Ivy League campus, saying the death of 24-year-old Annie Le was a targeted act but would not say why anyone would want to kill the young woman just days before she was to be married.

"We're not believing it's a random act," said officer Joe Avery, a police spokesman. No one else is in danger, he said, though he would not provide details other than to say that police believe no other students were involved. He also denied reports that police had a suspect in custody.

Several news organizations reported that police were interviewing a possible suspect who failed a polygraph test and has defencive wounds on his body. Avery denied those reports.
ABC News, WNBC-TV, The New Haven Register and the New Haven Independent cited anonymous sources in their reports. The Register and WNBC-TV also identify the possible suspect as a lab technician. Yale officials said the building where Le worked would reopen under increased security. Still, some students worried about their safety.
