Family Of Slain Yale Grad Student May Sue School

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — A lawyer for a slain Yale University graduate student’s family says they are considering suing the school over its hiring of the suspect and how it looked into her disappearance.
Attorney Brian King said Wednesday that Annie Le’s family questions whether Yale properly investigated Raymond Clark III’s background before hiring him as a technician at a lab building where Le also worked.
The 24-year-old Le’s body was found stuffed behind a wall at the lab on Sept. 13, 2009. Clark has pleaded not guilty to murder charges. His case was continued to Sept. 29.
A Yale spokesman says they haven’t been notified of any anticipated lawsuits, but that the university mourns Le’s death and hopes the academic fellowship created in her name helps keep her spirit alive.
