Or maybe Annie had specifically written that text messaging was her preferred means of communication regarding lab matters. He might have had to contact her before.

    What I'd like to know is if he said something in the text like "Hey, this is Ray, from the lab" or if he just texted her the message without including who he was. Even if his name/number was stored in her phone (which would automatically tell who the text was from) he would probably include his name, to make sure she knew who was texting from an unfamiliar number. In my opinion, if you know someone mostly on a professional level, you'd probably still state who you were in the text message.

    But obviously that's just my opinion. A lot of factors could influence why he texted, but I don't think it necessarily illustrates a personal or more intimate relationship.

    eta: or maybe he sent it via email and she had a smart phone? My emails show up looking kind of like text messages on my blackberry.
    Same here. I totally agree with you.

    It would kinda be like if you live in an apartment complex, and you were at the pool and left trash. If the management knew it was you they would most likely contact you. Leave on note on your door or call you. If I received a text that said "we need to meet about the mess you left at the pool", I would think that was really strange.
    It would be like getting an appointment confirmation by text.

    I would also like to know when the message, text or email, was sent.
    On NG, she said Annie had replied with something like whatever I need to do differently, I'll do.
    Yes, I too heard on Nancy's show that Annie's reply was conciliatory. What I think is important is we haven't heard for certain when the text msg. was sent to Annie. What I did hear early on was that she had reserved the lab time for 10am that morning. Was it reserved before or after receiving his message? Had she planned on being there for something other than meeting with RC?
    Rest in Peace

    So I see nothing unusual about this guy texting Annie Le over a school-related matter. What bothers me is that he might have been calm in the text, but had a fit when she arrived to discuss things with him. It does seem like a trap was being set.

    That's what I'm inclined to think also. MOO

    Yes, but it's still hard to believe that he'd be so upset over the state of the cages to kill somebody. I do think he was obsessed with her - it wouldn't surprise me that he never mentioned it to anyone since he was engaged to someone else AND he'd be afraid that his fiancee might find out.


    In case like this people only kill for a few reasons...

    1) sick/possessive love obsession

    2) money - either for financial gain or for fear of job loss

    3) to silence someone - for instance, if they walked in during a crime...since he requested the meeting, this is unlikely.

    If Raymond Clark was a time bomb waiting to go off, then wouldn't Annie have been hesitant to meet with him unless other people were around? Truly, if Clark was an intimidating presence in the lab, I don't think she'd want to be alone in the same room as him.

    We are only guessing at their relationship based on a text or series of texts that may or may not have been addressed between them that morning. We don't even know if they actually saw each other that day.

    If they had a history of tension or fighting, then that would have been pretty obvious to everyone in that lab. But we haven't heard anything of that nature. Someone calling him a 'control freak' could just be the ramblings of a person who had a beef with Clark. Everyone else has said he was never a problem.

    The thing that puzzles me is that there is no cell reception in the basement of the med school buildings. This is something widely lamented now because of what happened to AL, but it's always been true. I guess he could have left the basement and gone outside or upstairs to text her, but it seems to me that a land line call or an email would have been easier. I guess not if he didn't have access to a computer or a phone.

    I have a hunch he texted her from home -- or from his car on the way to work -- because he swiped into the Amistad building after Annie did, IIRC.
