Body of Missing Yale Student Thought to Be Found

New Haven police believe they have found the body of missing Yale University graduate student, Annie Le, reports the New York Times. Le was last seen alive in the lab at Yale where the police later discovered a body inside a wall. The remains have not yet been officially identified. Le was working toward a doctorate in pharmacology at the medical school and was to have been married yesterday. According to the Times, the search "began with speculation of a runaway bride but quickly gave way to near certainty that a crime had been committed." The Los Angeles Times reports that the FBI was brought into the search and that bloodhounds were used to search the lab.
