To me that was adding an absolute and diabolical insult to another lifelong injury he caused: the permanent pain within Annie's family. I could go on, of course ...

    Also saw this:

    Clark pleaded guilty in March to murder and attempted sexual assault under an agreement with prosecutors. The sexual assault plea was entered under Connecticut's Alford doctrine, where the defendant doesn't agree to the facts but agrees the state has enough evidence to get a conviction.

    Hi, PokrSaladAnnie; yes, like you, I have been waiting for this day. One thing that always struck is that Annie wasn't just a good, well-liked person; she had already turned herself into a scientist whose good works would benefit many others.

    "Le was a doctoral pharmacology student who worked on a team that experimented on mice as part of research into enzymes that could have implications for treatment of cancer, diabetes and muscular dystrophy."

    The other thing I keep thinking about is the physical disproportion between killer and victim:

    Prosecutor David Strollo said Le had a broken collar bone and jaw, injuries suffered while she was alive, and that her underwear had been disarranged. He noted that the victim was 4 feet nine inches and 89 pounds, while Clark was 5 feet 9 inches and 190 pounds

    As feisty as she was, this brave young woman didn't have a chance.

    Oh, Chanler ... I couldn't resist coming back in here ... because ... I wrote in my post above "I could go on...". In fact, I'd chopped off my next lambasting ... which followed just the lines you wrote... tho brimming with anger and resent - here's what I was going to add:

    "This beast of a man (a floor cleaner and rat carer) was probably double the size of (the very gifted, talented and promising) Annie Le and .... Clark snapped her bones before killing her in what had to have been a most torturous manner for all those injuries."

    Chanler, I trust in karma - I believe he'll probably suffer a few broken bones in prison - when fending off a sex-hungry convict... I don't wish it - I just expect it to happen.

    Anyway - if this is justice - he's toast. The father's "pride" Clark's "Annie" speech ..... was just too much for me. On that note, I bid you a great day; may Annie's soul rest in peace (and I've always enjoyed your posts: grounded, wise, caring, deep, genuine. I do wish some of your 'rays' would always shine through my lap top ... and into my life, LOL).

    Go well,

    Polk

    Raymond Clark's father specifically acknowledges the crime: “I say this to underscore how shocked we were to hear that Ray committed this horrible, senseless offense. ... This is not the Ray we know and raised; we can’t explain or make sense of this.”

    Clark would not acknowledge the sexual aspect of the crime, but to me, the evidence sounds completely compelling: "Prosecutors said Clark’s semen was found on Lee’s pantyliner. When her body was found, they said, her bra was pushed up and her panties pulled down."

    Yale lab technician sentenced in killing of graduate student

    "“She was about to start her life as a young bride,’’ said Le’s mother, Vivian. “She told me many times how happy she was to start her family. I will never see her walking down the aisle. I will never hold my grandchildren. I will never see Annie’s dreams come true.’’

    “I only see my Annie in my dreams,’’ she added."

    How very sad for Annie's family. My prayers for them to somehow find peace.

    Rest in Peace

    Just watching the few moments of her brother's statement at the press conference was absolutely heart-wrenching. Far too much pain inflicted on these good people. At least the family is satisfied with the legal outcome, not having to go through the ordeal of a trial. I understand that some think the sentence should be more severe but 44 years in prison without the possibility of parole is a long time.

    Annie le's family sues yale for wrongful death

    http://abcnews.go.com/US/annie-le-fa...ry?id=14464186

    Nearly two years to the day that she was murdered, the family of Yale graduate student Annie Le has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the university. The suit, filed Tuesday in Connecticut Superior Court in New Haven, claims Yale failed to adequately protect women for years, accusing the college of insufficiently addressing incidents of sexual harassment and sexual assault on campus.
    The university took "inadequate steps to ensure the safety and security of women on its campus" in the years before Le's murder, the suit claims. The court action also asserts that Yale botched the search for Le after she went missing in September of 2009.
