    Yale announces reward for missing student
    updated 10:38 p.m. EDT, Fri September 11, 2009
    <snipped>
    Police are searching for Annie Le, 24, who was last seen outside a Yale School of Medicine building. Authorities in Connecticut are reviewing security camera footage, examining Le's computer and checking blueprints of the building, according to Yale spokeswoman Dorie Baker.

    "The State Police have searched the area of Ms. Le's last known appearance with their bloodhounds; law enforcement officers are continuing to undertake detailed searches of the surrounding area; and security officials are reviewing images from closed-circuit cameras in the area," the letter said.

    Several media outlets reported that her fiance, Jonathan Widawsky, is a graduate student at Columbia University in New York. Widawsky could not be immediately reached.

    $10,000 Reward For Missing NorCal Yale Student
    Sep 11, 2009 5:05 pm US/Pacific
    <snipped>
    More than 100 local, state and federal law enforcement personnel were involved in the investigation into Tuesday's disappearance of Annie Le, said Yale spokesman Tom Conroy.

    Investigators were examining footage from some 75 cameras on and around the building where Le was last spotted. They did not immediately find any footage of her leaving the building.

    "They are going frame by frame, looking at every image," Conroy said.

    They also examined blueprints of the building to make sure no places were missed in their search, and examined Le's e-mails and her computer, he said.

    There continues to be no evidence of foul play, Conroy said.


    Annie Le, 24, has been missing since Tuesday, September 8. She is supposed to be getting married on Sunday.

    Professor questioned by police in case of missing Yale student Annie Le
    Saturday, September 12th 2009, 4:00 AM
    <snipped>
    Cops questioned a Yale professor Friday in the case of a graduate student who went missing just days before her New York wedding, a police source told the Daily News.

    Annie Le, a 24-year-old doctoral student in pharmacology, was supposed to attend the professor's class on Tuesday afternoon.

    But the class was abruptly canceled - and hours later, Le was discovered missing.

    The sudden cancellation near the time when Le is believed to have disappeared aroused suspicions among law enforcement, a New Haven police source said.

    It was unclear what class was canceled or if the professor is a suspect. Yale officials would not comment, and a police spokesperson did not return calls.

    Meanwhile, family members canceled her wedding, which was set for tomorrow morning on Long Island.

    "The wedding is off," a supervisor at the North Ritz Club in Syosset said. "A family member called and canceled it."

    University Offers $10K Reward, Wedding Cancelled as Cops Search for Student
    Sept. 12, 2009
    <snipped>
    Le was due to marry her fiance Jonathan Widawsky Sunday, leading to questions about whether the 24-year-old pharmacology student had gotten cold feet and ran away or whether she was the victim of foul play.

    In an exclusive interview with "Good Morning America," a friend of Le's who came to New York to attend the wedding said the bride-to-be was excited about getting married and would not have run off to avoid the wedding.

    FBI questioned man outside Yale lab
    New Haven police drive away second person
    Updated: Saturday, 12 Sep 2009, 12:26 PM EDT

    Investigators outside the laboratory where a missing Yale University student worked have driven away from the scene with a man they were questioning.

    New Haven police later drove away with a second person.

    Two agents were seen questioning the man just before 10:30 a.m. Saturday outside the lab where 24-year-old Annie Le was last seen. When they finished talking, the man got in the front seat of the unmarked car and one of the agents got in the back seat. The car then drove away.

    About two hours later, around 12:15 p.m., a man in a blue shirt got into a car with a man wearing a New Haven police jacket. That car also drove off.

    It was not immediately clear who the men are, and what their connection is to the disappearance of Le.

    Citing a police source, the New York Daily News reported that police on Friday questioned a Yale professor in Le's disappearance. According to the report, Le was supposed to attend the professor's class on Tuesday, but the class was canceled and Le was discovered missing a few hours later.

    It was unclear what class was canceled or if the professor is a suspect, the paper reported.

    Amistad Building Facts
    <snipped>
    The Amistad Street Building was constructed on a site conducive to the use of public and alternative transportation. The building is served regularly by buses from both Yale and the city of New Haven. Its proximity to the Union Street Train Station makes it easy for commuters to arrive by train, rather than personal vehicle. Bike rack and shower access encourage employees to bike to work. In addition, many amenities are located within walking distance, allowing for easy access throughout each workday.

    Storm water is collected from the roof and stored in a 7,500 gallon tank. This water is treated non-chemically and then used in the building’s grey water system, to flush toilets and provide irrigation. This practice not only conserves potable water, but also reduces the amount of runoff entering New Haven’s storm water system.

    University: Professor is not a suspect in disappearance
    Saturday, September 12, 2009
    11:32 a.m.
    <snipped>
    University Vice President and Secretary Linda Lorimer shot down reports this morning that the authorities believe a professor may be involved in the disappearance of Annie Le MED ’13.

    The New York Daily News, citing an anonymous police source, reported today that police questioned an unnamed Yale professor on Friday after learning he canceled his class on Tuesday around the time Le went missing. The New York Post published a similar article, citing a report on the Fox affiliate WTIC-TV in Hartford, and the stories have quickly spread around the Web.

    In an interview this morning, Lorimer said that headlines like one on the Fox News Web site saying "Yale Professor Questioned in Graduate Student's Disappearance" are entirely misleading.

    Calling the phrase a "typical Fox News hysterical headline," Lorimer added that the police are "interviewing tons of people" and there is no reason to believe any professor is a suspect in Le’s disappearance.

    She confirmed news reports that Le often uses Yale Transit to travel from her apartment in the East Rock neighborhood to the School of Medicine, but said there is no evidence that Le used Yale Transit after entering the facility at 10 Amistad St. at 10 a.m. Tuesday.

    Finally, Lorimer called it "entirely perplexing that there doesn't seem to be a record of her" leaving that building.

    Yale Professor Questioned in Graduate Student's Disappearance
    Updated: Saturday, 12 Sep 2009, 1:16 PM EDT
    Published : Saturday, 12 Sep 2009, 8:46 AM EDT
    <snipped>
    Detectives questioned a Yale professor Friday who suddenly canceled class about the same time graduate student Annie Le vanished, a police source told the New York Daily News.

    Le, 24, a doctoral student in pharmacology at the Ivy League university, was supposed to attend the class Tuesday afternoon. But the course was canceled shortly before Le was reported missing, according to the News.

    A New Haven police source told the paper that investigators grew suspicious about the timing and questioned the professor. It wasn't known whether that person is considered a suspect or what came out of the interview.


    Le was last seen about 10 a.m. Tuesday morning on surveillance camera outside a lab in the Yale School of Medicine complex, less than a mile from the main campus in New Haven, Conn.

    About the same time, she swiped her Yale ID at the facility's entrance. There was no footage of her leaving the building, in spite of a fire alarm that went off about 12:40 p.m. The alarm isn't thought to be connected to her disappearance.

    Search intensifies for missing Yale student
    September 12, 2009
    <snipped>
    The search intensified Saturday for a missing Yale University student who was to be married in Syosset on Sunday, as law enforcement agencies scoured the university research building where she was last spotted by a surveillance camera.

    Officers used German shepherds to search the building while authorities continued to question anyone who knows Le, including professors, colleagues, friends, roommates and campus workers, authorities said.

    A man entered the lab early Saturday afternoon carrying a map that showed the interior of a building, with numbered rooms, and what appeared to be blueprints - several rolls of oversize white sheets.

    "If I happened to know this student, they'd interview me," Yale spokesman Tom Conroy said.

    Le's roommate reported her missing Tuesday night when she did not return home to their apartment. Le used her university identification card to enter the lab building about 10 a.m., but left her purse, cell phone, credit cards and cash in her office, located in another Yale building about three blocks away.

    Late Saturday morning, investigators were seen questioning a man wearing a T-shirt outside the research lab at 10 Amistad St.

    The man covered his face when he spotted reporters, then got into the front seat of the agents' vehicle, with one agent getting into the backseat. The vehicle drove away.

    Missing grad prof questioned
    Last Updated: 2:45 PM, September 12, 2009
    Posted: 3:29 AM, September 12, 2009
    <snipped>
    One of missing Yale grad student Annie Le's professors reportedly was questioned by cops after they learned he canceled a class the bride-to-be was due to attend the same day she mysteriously disappeared.

    The prof called off the class Tuesday, well before anyone raised an alarm that Le had vanished -- just five days ahead of her scheduled Long Island wedding, Fox61-TV in Connecticut reported. The professor has not been charged.

    Meanwhile, The Post has learned that Le's mom, Vivian, told a woman at a New Haven supermarket that her daughter's disappearance was "not cold feet," while handing out missing-person fliers Wednesday.

    The somber mom also told the woman that "it's not the boyfriend" -- Columbia University physics grad student Jonathan Widawsky -- who's to blame for Le going missing.

    "Less than one week til the big day!" Le, 24, wrote on her Facebook page last Sunday.

    Her page also read, "Lucky I'm in love with my best friend ," under a photo of her and Widawsky.

    Le was "hellbent on getting married," her uncle Minh Nguyen told the Yale Daily News.

    And Yale Pharmacology Department chair Joseph Schlessinger told the paper, "She was always talking about the wedding."

    Unhappy Annie Le

    MISSING STUDENT: CRIME SCENE FOUND IN BUILDING
    Published: Saturday, September 12, 2009
    <snipped>
    Bloody clothes and other evidence of a crime scene have been found inside the building where missing Yale University student Annie Le was last seen, police sources said Saturday.

    The discovery may dash hopes that Le, whose wedding Sunday has been called off, would be found alive.

    Police sources said the evidence was discovered in a ceiling at the Yale building at 10 Amistad St. where surveillance footage shows Le entering Tuesday morning. She has not been seen since. The building houses the university’s molecular biology labs.

    Police, using bloodhounds, have been searching the building since earlier this week.

    Yale officials said a check of Le’s computer and cell phone failed to turn up anything to explain her disappearance. Le left her purse, money, credit cards and cell phone at her office at 333 Cedar St. before walking three blocks to 10 Amistad St.

    On Saturday, Yale officials said media reports of one of Le’s professors being questioned in the case is misleading, since anyone she has contact with has been questioned.

    Search continues for missing student
    Published Friday, September 11, 2009
    <snipped>
    After a full day of work, authorities have no good news to report in the search for Annie Le MED ’13.

    Investigators interviewed Le’s friends and colleagues Thursday and continued to search the research facility at 10 Amistad St. where she was last seen Tuesday morning. Agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation were seen entering her apartment at 188 Lawrence St. at about 1 p.m.; after two hours of searching, they removed a bag of items from the house. Still, University and law enforcement officials said there were no major developments yesterday and that they will continue searching Friday.

    A fire alarm that was sounded at 12:40 p.m. Tuesday is not thought to be related to her disappearance, Highsmith said. She added that a malfunctioning smoke detector caused the alarm and that investigators do not believe anyone tampered with the fire system.

    Le’s roommate was the first to notify authorities of Le’s disappearance Tuesday night. Yale Police Chief James Perrotti said in an interview that the YPD began investigating between 9 and 10 p.m., immediately after they learned that Le was missing, and quickly learned that Le had left all her belongings in her Sterling Hall of Medicine office early Tuesday before she walked three blocks to the facility at 10 Amistad St. where she often conducted research. Police began interviewing friends and colleagues of Le late Tuesday and continued that work on Wednesday and Thursday.

    The University did not, however, send an e-mail to the entire campus until 10:42 a.m. Thursday, though media outlets were informed of the disappearance on Wednesday afternoon. Perrotti said there was a delay in alerting the media and the community because the police “do get reports of missing persons, and most of the time, through our investigation, we are able to figure out where the person is.”

    Cops seeking clues in missing Yale student Annie Le's disappearance say case 'wide open'
    Saturday, September 12th 2009, 2:43 PM
    <snipped>
    Investigators searching for missing Yale graduate student Annie Le questioned a man outside her lab yesterday - then put him in an unmarked car with an FBI agent and drove away.

    The source said investigators are looking at:

    *A burglary gone bad - the lab where Le was last seen is full of valuable equipment.

    *Kidnapping - Le's mother owns nail salons in California and has access to cash.

    *A professor who suddenly canceled a class Le was to attend around the time she went missing.

    Investigators are still searching through hundreds of hours of surveillance footage and following up on tips.

    They are going frame by frame, looking at every image," said Yale spokesman Tom Conroy. "We are also reviewing footage of nearby businesses."

    "We have yet to I.D. her leaving the building," he said.

    "The FBI is continuing to do interviews with everyone who knew the student."


    Investigators took unidentified male for questioning at Amistad Hall where missing Yale grad student Annie Marie Le, 24, who was scheduled to get married, was last seen.

    LIVE BLOG: Press conference at Woodbridge Hall
    <snipped>
    5:35 p.m. | Vice President and Secretary Linda Lorimer is now speaking, introduced by Yale spokesman Tom Conroy. She is praising law enforcement for their work on the case.

    5:37 p.m. | "I’ve been in conversations with Annie Le’s family," Lorimer said. She says the University has conveyed the fact it wants to do anything it can to help the family, and says the family asks for the media to respect its privacy.

    5:38 p.m. | "The investiation is at a very difficult stage," Lorimer said. "It's just not right for them to speculate," she says of law enforcement officials, who are about to speak.

    5:38 p.m. | Kimberly Mertz, the special agent in charge of the FBI in Connecticut, is now speaking. More than 100 law enforcement officials are part of the case, she said. "We are not in a position today to conclude whether this is a missing persons case or whether criminality is involved," she said.

    5:39 p.m. | YPD Chief James Perrotti is at the lectern. "One of the things that Yale takes very seriously is security on campus," he said. He said Yale is very fortunate to have so many cameras near 10 Amistad St. and asks reporters to emphasize the $10,000 reward and the FBI tip line (877-503-1950).

    5:41 p.m. | Officials from the Connecticut State Police and New Haven Police Department are now introducing themselves.

    5:42 p.m. | "We don't know where she is," Conroy said. People yell at him for not speaking into the microphone. "We don't know if a crime were committed or not," he said.

    "I will categorically say a body has not been found," Mertz said.

    As for the bloody clothes reportedly removed from 10 Amistad St., she says, "Items that could potentially be evidence has been seized," Mertz said. These items have not been "associated" with Le, she said.

    Mertz is now being criticized for the lack of information Yale and law enforcement officials have released to the press over the course of the past few days.

    5:44 p.m. | "I'm not going to confirm what was seized," Mertz said.

    5:46 p.m. | "I'm not going to provide that timeline," Mertz said when asked about what Le was doing and with whom she was interacting at 10 Amistad St. the morning of her disappearance.

    FBI: Items seized in Annie Le's disappearance
    25 min 12 sec ago
    <snipped>
    Authorities reported on Saturday evening that items had been seized in the search for Yale University graduate student Annie Le.

    FBI spokeswoman Kim Mertz told reporters that a body had not been found, but that investigators were analyzing the seized items to determine if they had any connection to the case.

    "I will categorically say a body has not been found," Mertz said. "All I will say is items that could potentially be evidence have been seized. None have yet been associated with Annie Le."

    Authorities have not found record of Le leaving the building, despite about 74 surveillance cameras covering the complex.

    "The last video clip we have her entering the Amistad building," Mertz said. "We are still undergoing the review. We have not yet confirmed an exit."

    "I do not know whether it is definitive whether she has left the building," Mertz said.

    At a press conference outside Woodbridge Hall this evening, officials from the University and law enforcement agencies also confirmed that evidence had been retrieved from the research facility at 10 Amistad St., but said that it had not yet been tied to Le. A New Haven Police Department official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation, said earlier today that bloody clothes and other items had been retrieved from a ceiling in the building, and two Yale Police Department officers said that 10 Amistad St. is now the site of a crime scene.

    Still, authorities at the press conference said there was no evidence of foul play in Le's disappearance.

    "We are not in the position today to conclude whether this is a missing person case, or whether criminality is involved," FBI Special Agent Kim Mertz said. "We have conducted numerous interviews, and I can assure you no lead is going uncovered."

    Mertz said Saturday that authorities have spoken to "numerous people" who saw Le inside the facility at 10 Amistad St. but declined to give any further details.

    Annie Le

    FBI: Student's body has not been found
    Published Saturday, September 12, 2009
    <snipped>
    Media reports emerged on Saturday afternoon that Le's body had been found inside the Amistad Street building. Those reports were quickly dismissed.

    "I will categorically say a body has not been found," Mertz said

    A fire alarm that sounded in the Amistad Street facility at 12:40 p.m. on Tuesday is thought to have been a false alarm, Mertz said. Someone working in the lab produced steam that tripped the alarm, she said.

    As part of that investigation, FBI agents undertook several complete sweeps of 10 Amistad St., bringing in bloodhounds and even combing through trash in a dumpster outside the building. They searched Le's apartment at 188 Lawrence St. as well as her computer and phone for clues. As the search perimeter expanded, agents also searched medical school buildings in the surrounding area.

    With all the uncertainty, students say they have changed their social habits a bit.

    "You definitely want to be with people all the time. And when you are trying to get from point A to point B you should just be secure with who you are around," Manzer said.

    Information from authorities has only trickled out to the public. People say they are frustrated and freightened about not knowing.

    "And that's the scariest part because there is no information. It's not a closed case. I mean, if she's dead is the killer still out there?" Chloe Drimal, a Yale freshman. said.

    And that type of thinking can drive a mom a thousand miles away crazy.

    "She's freaking out. But I told her I'm on old campus, security is everywhere, we are fine," Natalie Papillon, a Yale freshman, said.

    Annie Le

    A life that may not be: Details of the canceled wedding of Annie Le
    Sunday, September 13th 2009, 4:00 AM
    <snipped>
    Only one question was supposed to be on the mind of would-be groom Jonathan Widawsky on Sunday.

    Do you take this woman to be your wife?

    Cantor Sandra Sherry, who would have presided over today’s ceremony, immediately feared foul play, saying Le, 24, would never skip out on her wedding day.

    “Her smile was effervescent when she spoke about the wedding,” said Sherry. “She embroidered her own veil, which says to me that she was looking forward to this occasion.”

    Some 160 guests were to arrive at the North Ritz Club in Syosset at 11 a.m. for the ceremony, set on a gazebo overlooking a pond. The celebration would have continued until the early evening with a meal, open bar and toasts.

    Deborah Kiley, owner of Deborah’s Hairloft in Huntington, was planning to do Le’s hair and makeup this morning. “She wanted a slick back bun and very simple makeup,” Kiley said. “She wanted everything perfect.”

    Sherry has known Widawsky since he was a baby, she said, but noticed “he was happiest when he was around Annie. He really shone bright around her.”

    “They had everything going for them,” she said. “They were not only a couple, they were best friends. They reached a level of maturity that said they were ready for matrimony.”

    The groom’s father, Michael Widawsky, called Sherry on Wednesday to say the wedding would be postponed.

    “He was very, very distraught,” she said. “He said the family made a decision. They didn’t know where she was and people were coming to town so they had to postpone the wedding.”

    UPDATED: Bloody clothes found in Yale lab where Annie Le last seen; Officials deny reports of body found
    Updated Saturday, September 12th 2009, 10:01 PM
    <snipped>
    Investigators found bloody clothing in the building where a missing Yale graduate student was last seen days before her wedding day, a police source said Saturday.

    Cops discovered bride-to-be Annie Le's blood-stained clothes stuffed in the ceiling of the building at 10 Amistad St. in New Haven, the source said.

    Still, authorities gave no clue they were any closer to solving Le's baffling disappearance.

    Authorities emptied the building Saturday afternoon and declared it a crime scene.

    The source said investigators are looking at various scenarios, including:

    *A burglary gone bad - the lab where Le was last seen is full of valuable equipment.

    *Kidnapping - Le's mother owns nail salons in California and has access to cash.

    A professor who suddenly canceled a class Le was to attend around the time she went missing was questioned Friday, but had a rock-solid alibi and is not considered a suspect, a law enforcement source said.

    Le graduated from the University of Rochester in 2007, where she received a degree in bioscience and met her fiancé, Jonathan Widawsky, whom she was set to marry today in Syosset, L.I.

    Police say Widawsky, a Columbia University graduate student, is not a suspect and is assisting with the investigation.

    Bloody clothes in missing bride's lab
    Last Updated: 5:47 AM, September 13, 2009
    Posted: 3:10 AM, September 13, 2009
    <snipped>
    The mysterious disappearance of a Yale grad student days before her wedding took a sinister turn yesterday when investigators found bloody clothes and other evidence of a crime scene in the science-lab building where she was last seen.

    Cops using bloodhounds found the evidence tucked away above the tiles of a dropped ceiling in the Amistad Street Building, where Annie Le was last seen entering Tuesday morning, according to the New Haven Register.

    "There is no reason to believe whatsoever" that she's a runaway bride, said Yale spokeswoman Linda Lorimer.

    Her fiancé, Jon Widawsky, a physics graduate student at Columbia University, canceled the wedding Friday after Le had been missing for three days.

    Le, a 24-year-old doctoral student from Placerville, Calif., was studying pharmacology and molecular medicine and was last seen going into the building that housed the school's molecular-biology labs.

    More than 100 officers with the FBI, Connecticut State Police and New Haven police had pored over the building's labs and surveillance footage hunting for evidence, and hit paydirt yesterday in the basement where Le had done work.

    They also conducted interviews with all those who had been in the building the day she was last seen, including her professor and lab mates.

    Police, Dogs Search Dump for Missing Yale Bride Annie Le
    On Missing Student's Wedding Day, Cops Search for Body in Conn. Landfill
    Sept. 13, 2009
    <snipped>
    Using cadaver-sniffing dogs in round-the-clock shifts, FBI agents and state troopers dressed in hazardous-material suits have been searching a waste-processing facility in Hartford since late last night.

    Law enforcement officials told ABC News they believe a search of the dump could yield results in the search for Le, who was seen entering a Yale University laboratory Tuesday but apparently never left.

    Le and fiance Jonathan Widawsky were to be married today at a ceremony on Long Island, N.Y. Wedding gifts were left outside Widawky's family's home.

    Investigators confirm they are now examining items recovered from inside the lab building. But they have not confirmed published reports that those items included bloody clothing, reportedly found inside the ceiling of the lab.

    Yale prays for return of missing graduate student
    10 minutes ago
    <snipped>
    Yale University students are praying for missing graduate student Annie Le, who remains the subject of a massive police search the day that she was scheduled to marry in New York.

    Le and her family were on the thoughts of students attending services Sunday at The University Church at Yale. Pastor Ian Buckner Oliver asked for a moment of silence and prayer "for Annie, and her family, who have arrived here in New Haven, for her fiance, on this, what would have been their wedding day."

    Le, a 24-year-old doctoral student from Placerville, Calif., was last seen Tuesday at a laboratory where she worked. Police say surveillance video does not show her leaving the building.

    THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

    NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — As authorities continued their search for a Yale University graduate student and bride-to-be who disappeared several days ago, they said they are now examining potential evidence from a laboratory where she was last seen.

    Items that could be evidence have been seized and are being analyzed, but none has yet been associated with Annie Le, FBI spokeswoman Kim Mertz said at a news conference Saturday.

    UPDATED: Annie Le Hunt Extends To Hartford
    September 13, 2009 11:59PM
    <snipped>
    At least a dozen investigators, some in white hazmat suits, were spotted sifting through trash at a Hartford incinerator Sunday morning as the grisly search for a missing Yale graduate student moved north.

    Crews from the state police, Hartford police department, and Metropolitan District Commission were on site at the Connecticut Resources Recovery Authority plant, which is normally closed on Sunday.

    State police dogs were also at work.

    They were looking for clues about the disappearance of 24 year-old third-year pharmacology grad student Annie Le. Le was last seen inside a Yale medical lab building at 10 Amistad St. in New Haven at 10 a.m. Tuesday. Since then more than 100 law enforcement agents, including many from the FBI, have been in New Haven as part of what has become a nationally followed hunt.

    New Haven Assistant Police Chief Pete Reichard Sunday confirmed the search and called it routine. He and Yale Assistant Vice President Linda Lorimer flatly denied a published report that the cops had a tip that Le’s body might have been dumped in Hartford. It appears to be the third false report published this weekend about the Le case.

    “There was no tip coming in in any way,” Reichard said Sunday. “This [Hartford search] is standard procedure that was determined by the FBI. Trash in New Haven ends up in Hartford.”

    CRRA spokesman Paul Nonnemache said state police called and asked permission to search through the trash at the plant. He was unable to confirm what authorities were searching for, but he did say the plant doesn’t usually accept trash deliveries on Sunday and is sometimes open for processing.

    Investigators search trash at Hartford incinerator

    http://www.yaledailynews.com/crossca...d-incinerator/

    Update, 2:16 p.m. | An FBI Evidence Response Team — including a large truck and a Chevrolet Suburban — just arrived at the incinerator. They are now parked outside along with several State Police cruisers.

    HARTFORD — The Federal Bureau of Investigation and Connecticut State Police spent Sunday morning sifting through trash at an incinerator here as they continue to search for clues in the disappearance of Annie Le MED ’13, who has not been seen since Tuesday morning.

    State Police cars could be seen parked outside the facility, and workers in white hazmat suits are searching through piles of garbage.

    Trash from New Haven and some 70 other towns goes to the facility in Hartford, which is operated by the Connecticut Resource Recovery Authority. FBI agent Bill Reiner said officials are “following the trash” that left 10 Amistad St., the laboratory where Le was last seen, according to The Associated Press. He declined to comment further.

    Investigators on Thursday were seen sifting through the trash outside the Amistad Street building, but it is unclear if they found anything of interest in that search.

    'Bloody Clothes' Found Inside Lab Where Missing Yale Student Worked
    Sunday, September 13, 2009
    <snipped>
    Bloody clothing was found inside a science laboratory building where missing Yale student Annie Le was last seen, FOX News confirms.

    Police sources said the clothing was found late Friday night above ceiling tiles in the basement of the five-story building where Le worked as a pharmacology graduate student. The items have not yet been linked to her disappearance by investigators.

    The FBI said Saturday that only "potential evidence" has been seized in the search for Le, a 24-year-old pharmacology graduate student who disappeared days before she was scheduled to be married. Le was last seen Tuesday entering the lab building on 10 Amistad Street in New Haven, Conn.

    Parts of the building have been labeled a crime scene, WTNH-TV reported Sunday.

    "Items that could potentially be evidence have been seized. None have yet been associated with Annie Le,” FBI Special Agent Kim Mertz said while declining to confirm reports that the evidence.

    UPDATED: Search for Yale student turns to incinerator
    Source to NBC: Bloody clothes removed from lab building
    September 13, 2009
    <snipped>
    The FBI says authorities are searching trash at a Connecticut incinerator as part of their investigation into the disappearance of a Yale University graduate student.

    FBI agent Bill Reiner said Sunday that investigators are searching the Connecticut Resources Recovery Authority's trash-to-energy plant in Hartford. He says officials are "following the trash" that left the laboratory. He declined to comment further.

    Twenty-four-year-old Annie Le was last seen Tuesday morning at a university laboratory in New Haven.

    Authorities say Le, a pharmacology doctoral student originally from Placerville, Calif., swiped her identification card to enter the lab, but there is no record of her leaving despite the many surveillance cameras around the complex.

    Earlier, potential evidence was seized from the building where Le was last seen before she vanished days ahead of her wedding, authorities said Saturday.

    A police source told NBC News that investigators had recovered bloody clothes from a laboratory building. The New Haven Register and the Yale Daily News reported on their Web sites that the clothes were found in a ceiling space.

    Items that could be evidence are being analyzed but none has yet been associated with Annie Le, FBI spokeswoman Kim Mertz said at a news conference.

    "I will categorically say a body has not been found," Mertz said. "Items that could potentially be evidence have been seized. None have yet been associated with Annie Le at this time."

    Mertz would not confirm reports that the items found included bloody clothing.

    UPDATE: Bloody clothes not items Le was last seen wearing
    Published: Sunday, September 13, 2009
    <snipped>
    The blood-stained clothes found in ceiling tiles at the Yale University laboratory where graduate student Annie Le disappeared are not the clothes Le was last seen wearing, law enforcement officials said.

    The items were sent for testing to see if the clothes had any connection to Le, whose disappearance five days before her wedding has attracted national media attention.

    Investigators said a small amount of blood was found on the clothing found Saturday at 10 Amistad St.

    Le is the daughter of Vietnamese immigrants and her mother is said to own several nail salons in California. Sources said Le was primarily raised by an aunt and uncle.

    Law enforcement officials Sunday said the clothes are not the same items Le was seen wearing on Tuesday as she passed a security camera entering the building. They continued to test them and had not linked them to Le as of Sunday afternoon.

    Mass email calls Annie Le’s disappearance a ‘perplexing mystery’ (video, photo links)

    On Saturday night, Yale University Vice President and Secretary, Linda Lorimer, sent a mass email message to the entire campus saying the disappearance of student Annie Le remains “the most perplexing mystery.”

    Reports indicate that bloody clothes were found in ceiling tiles within the building, however, authorities have not confirmed they are related to Annie or the case. According to CNN, the clothing is being tested in more than one lab.

    According to the Yale Daily News, Lorimer also said in her email, “As I am sure you understand, at this delicate time it is particularly unhelpful to begin speculating or jumping to conclusions. If it does develop that a crime occurred, we want to do everything to ensure that the investigation proceeds as swiftly and completely as possible.”

    Search For Yale Student Turns To Conn. Incinerator
    Officials 'Following Trash' That Left Lab
    POSTED: Sunday, September 13, 2009
    UPDATED: 4:54 pm EDT September 13, 2009
    <snipped>
    FBI agent Bill Reiner said Sunday that investigators are "following the trash" that left the university laboratory in New Haven. He declined to comment further on the search at the Connecticut Resources Recovery Authority's trash-to-energy plant in Hartford.

    On Sunday morning, a state police Major Crimes Squad van drove down a ramp into the basement area of the building where the lab is located. Officials had no immediate comment.

    On Sunday, students prayed for Le's safe return at The University Church.

    "It has been a week that has tested many people in many different ways," the Rev. Ian Buckner Oliver said just before he gave the Sunday morning sermon. "It has brought up a lot of fears for people. It has brought up a lot of worry and concern for her and for all our safety."

    The student-dominated congregation offered a moment of silence and prayer, "for Annie, and her family, who have arrived here in New Haven, for her fiance, on this, what would have been their wedding day. Let's lift them up in our prayers," Oliver said.

    Le's family arrived in New Haven on Saturday, Oliver said after the service. He said the church doesn't have any other events or prayer services planned specifically for Le.

    "There is nothing else at this point because the university and police have said there is no criminal investigation, there is no proof of a crime. So at this point, we are just praying," Oliver said.

    OFFICIAL YALE UNIVERSITY E-MAIL MESSAGE
    To: All Yale Faculty, Students & Staff
    From: Linda Koch Lorimer
    Summary: Community Message
    Date: 12-SEP-2009 09:33:00 PM Message ID: 45261
    <snipped>
    With all the media attention this weekend about the disappearance of Annie Le, our third year pharmacology graduate student, I wanted to give you an update. Because of the numerous rumors and speculation, I asked representatives of the FBI, the Connecticut State Police, Yale and New Haven Police leaders to speak to the press this afternoon to clarify where things stand. The law enforcement authorities are letting no stone go unturned: it is impressive to see the cooperation and concerted action of more than 100 law enforcement experts who are working tirelessly as a team.

    Alas, this remains the most perplexing mystery. We still do not know where Annie is or what has happened to her. We were told today that some items were found in the Amistad Building that are now being analyzed, but it is unknown at this time whether they are connected to her.

    As I am sure you understand, at this delicate time it is particularly unhelpful to begin speculating or jumping to conclusions. If it does develop that a crime occurred, we want to do everything to ensure that the investigation proceeds as swiftly and completely as possible. We hope that anyone in our community or the area with helpful information will call the FBI hotline at 877-503-1950. Given the suggestions in some of the national press about general safety in the area, it is worth remembering that the City reports that crime in New Haven has decreased by more than 50% since 1990.

    I have been in contact with Annie’s family and also her fiancé. As you would expect, we have underscored to them that the University wants to do everything in our power to find Annie and to do all that we can to support them. They asked us to share their own request that everyone respect their privacy in these horrible days for them.

    This is a difficult time for many in this community, too, as we worry about Annie. Martha Highsmith, Deputy Secretary, has been holding informational sessions with those who work and study in the Amistad Building and elsewhere in the School of Medicine complex; and there will be additional sessions when the deans think they can be useful. Students in particular should feel free to share this email with any family members and friends who have questions.

    Thanks to all who have been expressing concern for Annie and her family and friends. Like you, I fervently hope that the mystery of her disappearance will soon be solved.

    Three cars from the Connecticut State Police have pulled up alongside Amistad Park, a grassy open space across from 10 Amistad St., the building where Annie Le MED '13 was last seen. A trooper with a search dog ran alongside a fence near the park's Amistad Street entrance for about five minutes, and then the pair left.

    Reports: Bloody clothes not Le's

    Bloody clothes found in a Yale building are not the ones worn my missing grad student Annie Le the day she vanished, according to published reports Sunday.

    News Channel 8 reported Saturday that bloody clothes were found above ceiling tiles in the building at 10 Amistad St., and that the area was considered a crime scene.

    According to the New Haven Register , the clothes were still being tested but they had not been linked to Le as of the afternoon.

    The Yale Daily News cited a source who said the blood on the items could be either human or animal blood.

    News Channel 8's sources were not able to confirm the reports.

    This was written back on 9/9/09. Two points really stuck out to me.

    (snipped)
    Pharmacology Department chair Joseph Schlessinger said he first learned of Le’s disappearance from her faculty advisor Anton Bennett, an assistant professor in the pharmacology department. A 2007 graduate of the University of Rochester, Le is studying for a Ph.D. in pharmacology and molecular medicine.

    Schlessinger said that Bennett e-mailed him yesterday around noon informing him that Le had not come in to work and that no one knew where she was. Police confiscated all of Le’s materials from the Anton Bennet Lab in the Sterling Hall Department of Pharmacology, where she worked.

    Police found what they believe is the body of missing Yale med student Annie Le, ending a five-day manhunt that transfixed the nation.

    New Haven police made the announcement at a press conference at 1 Union Ave. at 9 p.m. Sunday.

    The body was found shortly after 5 p.m. Sunday at 10 Amistad St., the Yale medical building where Le did lab experiments, said Assistant Police Chief Pete Reichard.

    “We are assuming that it’s her,” Reichard said.

    Le, a 24 year-old third-year Yale pharmacology graduate student, went missing on Tuesday. Video cameras captured her entering 10 Amistad St., but they never captured her coming out. More than 100 law enforcement agents descended on the city to try to solve the mystery. They watched hours of video surveillance tape taken from over 70 cameras. They combed through the 120,000-square-foot building day and night.

    Sunday, they finally made a breakthrough in the case.

    Shortly after 5 p.m., they found the remains of a human body secreted inside a wall in the building.

    Police have not yet positively identified the body as Annie Le, but they’re “assuming” it is her, Reichard said. Police have ruled the case a homicide.

    Now that the case has been classified a homicide, it has been transferred to the jurisdiction of the New Haven police. Reichard presided at the press conference in the absence of Chief James Lewis, who has been in Wisconsin for the weekend but has kept up with developments by the half hour. Officials from the FBI and state police also appeared at the press conference. Yale officials are planning a separate press conference later tonight.

    New Haven police will work alongside the state’s attorney and state police to crack the case. They did not release further details Sunday, citing a pending investigation.

    The case was a mystery from the start.

    New Haven Police found a body hidden in a wall at 10 Amistad Street shortly after 5 p.m. Sunday.

    Police said at a Sunday evening press conference that they have not confirmed that the body is that of missing Yale University student Annie Le, but they presume it is her.

    It is considered to be a homicide investigation, and the New Haven Police is now the lead agency in that investigation.

    Le swiped her identification card to enter the building that morning, but there was no record of her leaving, despite some 75 surveillance cameras that cover the complex. Investigators pored over blueprints and surveillance video footage while searching for her.

    New Haven police announced Sunday that human remains, tentatively identified as belonging to missing graduate student Annie Le, have been found inside a wall in a school laboratory.

    More than 100 law enforcement agents have been searching for Le since Tuesday.

    Le, a graduate student at the Yale School of Medicine, was last seen entering a campus building on surveillance camera.

    Police said they believe Le left the Sterling Hall of Medicine where she had an office before 10 a.m. Tuesday. They said there are records of her swiping her card to get into a lab on Amistad Street, where she was captured by some of the more than 70 area surveillance cameras. They said she hasn't been seen or heard from since.

    University police said Le's purse, containing her cell phone, credit cards and money, was left in her office.

    She was scheduled to be married on Sunday.

    Body found in lab; student fails lie test
    Last Updated: 9:49 PM, September 13, 2009
    Posted: 9:36 PM, September 13, 2009
    <snipped>
    Grim-faced authorities tonight said they found a body believed to be that of missing Yale grad student Annie Le stuffed behind a wall at the school lab where she went missing last week — and added that a student failed a polygraph over the case.

    "Shortly after 5 p.m. this evening, Connecticut State Police located the remains of a human secreted in a wall inside a building located at 10 Amistad [St.]," said New Haven Police Assistant Chief Peter Reichard.

    "She hasn’t been positively ID’d, but we’re assuming it’s [Le]," Reichard said. "We contacted members of Le’s family. Our sympathies go out to the family."

    Reichard revealed that a university student has failed a lie-detector test when questioned about the missing young woman but refused to provide details, including whether he was the same young man who had been led from the building for questioning early Saturday.

    "We can’t release any more information at this time," Reichard said.

    The developments came hours after authorities had spent the afternoon scouring a trash dump at an incineration plant 40 miles north of the New Haven campus, where refuse from the lab is occasionally taken.

    A special team of FBI probers joined the state police at the Hartford site — the same day Le had been scheduled to marry a Columbia grad student on Long Island. Search dogs were heard barking inside the compound.

    Body in Yale lab wall is Annie Le: reports
    September 14, 2009 12:55pm
    <snipped>
    THE search for a missing student that has gripped Americans for six days has ended with the discovery of a body in a university laboratory wall.

    Annie Le, 24, was last seen outside a lab at Yale University on Tuesday and while some 75 security cameras captured her entering the building, none showed her coming back out.

    Le was going to married on Long Island yesterday.

    Overnight, New Haven police issued a statement claiming they had found a body in a basement at the university, in an area that housed utility cables running between floors.

    They would not confirm the body was Le, but the Associated Press reports they have contacted Le’s family and were now treating the case as a homicide.

    As late as yesterday, investigators had expanded their search 40 minutes up the highway from New Haven and were sifting through trash that originated at the Yale laboratory.

    Ashes from an incinerator were also examined.

    On Saturday, bloodied clothes were found on the roof of the laboratory building, but they didn’t match those Le was wearing when she entered.

    Our hearts go out to Annie Le’s family, fiancé and friends, who must suffer the additional ordeal of waiting for the body to be identified," Yale president Richard C. Levin wrote in email message to students which was reprinted in the New York Times.

    Police Seeking Missing Yale Student Find Body
    Published: September 13, 2009
    <snipped>
    The six-day search for a missing Yale graduate student ended on Sunday with the discovery of a body in a basement wall of a university laboratory building where she had last been seen, authorities in New Haven said.

    While the remains have not been officially identified, Peter Reichard, New Haven assistant police chief, said at a 9 p.m. press briefing that the authorities presume they have found Annie Le, 24, a graduate student who was last seen on Tuesday, five days before her wedding.

    In an e-mail message sent to students Sunday night, the president of Yale announced that a body had been found in the basement of the university laboratory.

    “Our hearts go out to Annie Le’s family, fiancé and friends, who must suffer the additional ordeal of waiting for the body to be identified,” wrote Richard C. Levin, the Yale president. He added, “Law enforcement officials remain on the scene; this is an active investigation, and we hope it is resolved quickly.”

    No suspect has been identified.

    In a thousand places, people’s thoughts turned to what should have been on Sunday, when Ms. Le, a third-year student in pharmacology from Placerville, Calif., was scheduled to be married. The ceremony would have taken place on what turned out to be a brilliant late-summer morning. Ms. Le was to have married Jonathan Widawsky, a graduate student at Columbia, at the North Ritz Club in Syosset on Long Island, near the groom’s family’s home.

    “This is Annie’s bouquet,” a woman said to a television reporter earlier, proffering a sad-looking array of roses. “It’s wilting.”

    Deborah Kiley of Deborah’s Hair Loft in Huntington, N.Y., who was to have styled the hair of Ms. Le, her mother, Mr. Widawsky’s mother and five attendants on Sunday morning, said she was praying for Ms. Le and her family.

    “I can’t even accept it right now,” Ms. Kiley said. “I never forget a soul I meet. I was going to be part of a beautiful day, which is the most important day of a girl’s life other than the day she gives birth.”

    On Bittersweet Place in Huntington, the Widawsky family remained in seclusion. The Le family, which had traveled to New Haven, was not heard from either.

    At the North Ritz Club, a woman on the phone who gave her name only as Mary Ellen parried a call. “We’re not giving any comment,” she said. “What comment is there to say?”

    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.

    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.

    Human Remains Found in Search for Missing Yale Student
    Sunday, September 13, 2009

    Police in Connecticut on Sunday said they found what they believe is the body of a Yale University graduate student and bride-to-be hidden inside the wall of a university building where she was last seen five days before.

    New Haven Assistant Police Chief Peter Reichard said officials presumed the body was that of doctoral student Annie Le, although they had not yet positively identified it. Le has been the focus of a massive police search since Tuesday.

    Le, 24, of Placerville, Calif., was to be married Sunday in Syosset, N.Y., on Long Island's north shore. New Haven police said they have contacted her family and have assumed control of the investigation, which is now being treated as a homicide.

    State police found the body at around 5 p.m. Sunday in an area of the building that houses utility cables that run between floors.

    On what should have been Annie Le's wedding night, cops on Sunday believed they found the Yale grad student's body stuffed into a basement wall of her lab building.

    State police made the heartbreaking discovery inside 10 Amistad St., the five-story building where Le was last seen on Tuesday morning.

    The grisly find came at almost the exact moment Le expected to walk down the aisle with fiancé Jonathan Widawsky in a plush ceremony on Long Island.

    "Our hearts go out to the family of Annie Le," said Yale President Richard Levin.

    New Haven Police Assistant Chief Peter Reichard said cops found "a large amount" of physical evidence and that the case is being treated as a homicide.

    The body was found in an area that houses utility cables that run between floors, police said.

    Levin met with Le's family, Widawsky and his family on Sunday and pledged the university's full resources to solve the crime.

    Widawsky is not a suspect and is assisting with the investigation, police said.

    A police source said cops had questioned a Yale student about Le's disappearance and he had failed a polygraph test.

    Reichard refused to answer questions about the other student.

    The California-bred daughter of Vietnamese immigrants was poised to marry Widawsky, 24, in an outdoor ceremony in Syosset, L.I., Sunday. Some 160 guests were expected to attend.

    "I feel so badly for Jonathan," said Cantor Sandra Sherry of Temple Beth El in Huntington, L.I., who would have led the wedding service. "This really makes a mark on your whole life."

    The North Ritz Club in Syosset was empty and dark Sunday. Widawsky, a physics graduate student at Columbia, started dating Le when the two were freshmen at the University of Rochester.

    The couple had planned to fly to Greece for their honeymoon later this week.

    "It was a lovely day . . . and now it's just sad," said Lucille Mayer, a neighbor and family friend of the Widawskys. "It's not only horrible for Annie's life being gone, but for Jonathan and his life being changed forever," she said.

    The gruesome discovery plunged an already weary campus into mourning and fear.

    Students received an e-mail from college President Levin titled "Tragic News."

    "It shows that Yale is no different then any other place in this country," said engineering student Ken Hargrove, 26. "This idea that despite all the crime around New Haven, Yale was somehow immune was burst in a heartbeat."


    Officers and others are on the scene at the Yale Medical Building at 10 Amistad in New Haven where Annie Le was last seen on Tuesday.


    Rest In Peace Annie!
