Evidence Mounts Against Raymond Clark

Yale murder suspect Raymond Clark—charged yesterday with killing Annie Le and hiding her body—is looking guiltier than ever, if you believe anonymous sources that leak to the media. Clark's DNA was a match, allegedly. Plus: An accomplice?

Various news outlets have been turning up scooplets for a week now. Investigators reportedly say that Clark sent Le a text message the day she went missing, asking to meet her to discuss work issues. Later, as police were searching the lab building for Le's body, Clark reportedly aroused their suspicion when an investigator saw him hastily "trying to hide lab cleaning equipment that they discovered contained blood spatters." They also say that lab swipe card records show Clark moving around to several different rooms where he normally would not go around the time of the crime (including the room where Le was found). The DNA match—if true—would seem incredibly incriminating.

[The] final piece that led to his arrest Thursday morning was the discovery that evidence in the ceiling and in the crawl space where Le's body was found contained the DNA of both Le and Clark, according to the law enforcement official who spoke to The Courant on the condition of anonymity.

Clark did not want to be just some guy who cleans mouse cages, so he distinguished himself by always signing in for work with a pen that used green ink. Every day, including the day of the killing.

Investigators believe he dropped the pen at the scene and was unable to retrieve it after it fell into a crevice.

An Accomplice?

We would take this one with a large grain of salt at this point, since all the evidence of it is the following, from today's NYP—and this bit of news would be everywhere if it was solid. So take it for what it's worth.

The Yale lab technician busted yesterday in the murder of brilliant grad student Annie Le may have had help hiding her body — and there could be another arrest, it was reported last night.

Cops are interrogating another employee who works in the lab where Raymond Clark allegedly killed Le, sources told Hartford TV station WTIC/Fox61.
