New Haven (WTNH) - The NewHaven Register reports police have obtained a DNA match thatimplicates Raymond Clark III, 24, in the slaying of Yale graduatestudent Annie Le.
Police have obtained, or are in the process of obtaining, anarrest warrant, the sources said.
Meanwhile, 10 Amistad continues to hold secrets. What exactlyhappened in the basement of the multi-million dollar Yale researchbuilding?
ABC News reports that Raymond Clark texted Le, on the day of herdisappearance, that they should meet and talk about the "dirtymice;" potentially referring to the animals she was working on inthe lab for research.
ABC News also says following Le's death, Clark had wounds on hisback, his chest and arms -- indicating a sign of some sort ofstruggle -- and was tracked, through his building key card, goinginto several rooms of the lab.
Still, New Haven Police Chief James Lewis kept fairly mum aboutthe investigation throughout Wednesday evening.
"We're still making sure who was in that building, who hadaccess to the locations in that building...until they arecompletely eliminated, we're trying to keep track of them, we'redoing that pretty successfully," said Chief Lewis.
Still, it seems the New Haven Police Department has its sightsset on Clark.
He was taken into custody Tuesday night, and police issued twosearch warrants, one for his Middletown apartment and the other forhis body, where DNA was taken.
He was released around 3:00 a.m. Since then, police executedanother two search warrants, for Clark's car and some more propertythat belonged to the Yale employee. Clark invoked his rights whilehe was with officers.
"I can never predict what a person might or might not do, I haveno authority to detain him in any way at this time," Police ChiefLewis said.
The tipping point for police, and perhaps for Clark, is the DNA.More than 250 items have been seized, and the state lab has beenworking around the clock analyzing anything and eventuallyeverything that comes their way.
The basis of this investigation is in the physical evidence andthey believe there is only one suspect.
Meanwhile, police are stationed in Cromwell, where Clark isstaying in the Super 8 motel.
"As far as the role of the Cromwell Police Department, we are asupport role with New Haven PD," said Captain Roy Nelson of theCromwell Police Department. "They are in our town and they areconducting a surveillance and we are there to support them with anyneeds they may have."
Clark has not been officially charged in the death of Le.
