The police are now treating Annie Le‘s case as a homicide, after they found a body hidden in the wall of the building where the Viet Yale grad student was last seen, reports the AP here.

At a press conference held Sunday evening, police said they presumed the body was that of Ph.D. student Annie Le, although they had not yet positively identified it.

Le, 24 of Placerville, California, was to be married Sunday in Long Island.

New Haven police have contacted her family and are now treating the case as a homicide.

State police found the body at around 5 p.m. Sunday in an area of the 10 Amistad building that houses utility cables that run between floors.

After the announcement was made, the flag flying at the Yale-New Haven Medical Center South entrance was pulled to half-staff.

The AP reports:

Le was last seen Tuesday morning in the building. Surveillance video shows her arriving around 10 a.m., but police had been baffled since the investigation began because there was no video of Le leaving, despite some 75 surveillance cameras operating around the complex. Her ID, money, credit cards and purse were found in her office.

More than 100 local, state and federal police had been searching the building for days, using blueprints to uncover any place where evidence or Le’s body could be hidden.

    It is sad that this news doesn’t attract many Viet around here than others noisy political issue, as it is showed by the number of comments here.

    It is such a tragic had something happened to her. She seems to be a bright person, presenting some good for our community. Missing her is a tragic loss.

    There’s like 6 postings on this story. There’s plenty of comments, they are just distributed across the postings.

    Besides, what is there to say? Of course everyone wishes she were alive and found (which unfortunately doesn’t seem to be the case).

    Also, in those “noisy” political stories its usually 3-4 commenters writing the vast majority of comments (some using different screennames to be clever) rather than dozens of people participating.

  3. David Jones says:

    The news is so sad…find the bleeding culprit and bring them to justice…

  4. xu says:

    Jung Kim killed her.

  5. Jung Kim says:

    A another bright young life cut short. My prayers are with the family.

  6. Jung Kim says:

    Min, I agree. She was a intelligent student and had so much of talent to offer our society in the medical field. Sad!

  7. SwineQueen says:

    Rest In Peace Annie Le.

  8. Viet Herald says:

    Even though we all assumed it was Annie Le’s body that was found at Yale yesterday, let’s not “jump to conclusion”.

    Not until we hear otherwise from the agencies in charge of the case.

    But if that were true… this is a sad story.

  9. Jung Kim says:

    Police is looking for the killer now..which means body has been identified as Annie Le. It seems like they are looking at school employees/workers first.

  10. SwineQueen says:

    The Police just said that a Yale student is a suspect.

  11. SwineQueen says:

    “The suspect, a student, has defensive wounds, and failed a polygraph test, the sources said.” AP Press

  12. Melissa says:

    A case of a wounded animal from a rejected love, for sure.

  13. Melissa says:

    Why so many nut cases popped up every where lately? Man, you got watch out for them, report to the police, send them to the nut houses, give them the lobotomy, etc. do not let them haunt the streets and the web sites like this,

    Starting with, uh…Jung Kim, I’m just saying, LOL.

  14. Jung Kim says:

    Melissa, asking for trouble/beating?

  15. Melissa says:

    Jung Kim; Do they have computer on line in the nut house? They got to take that away from you. Time for your pills.

  16. SwineQueen says:

    Mellisa wrote : “A case of a wounded animal from a rejected love, for sure.”

    One of Annie Le’s friend, interviewed by a local TV, said the same thing. She said Annie Le didn’t have any enemy, but someone who loves her, could have killed her out of jealousy.

  17. Jung Kim says:

    Hmm….. did student killer went wild over her marriage plan?

  18. SwineQueen says:

    The Police has not released all details but that is everyone’s assumption since she was killed just 5 days before her wedding.
    So solving this case is a piece of case for the cops.

  19. Jung Kim says:

    Police is also calling this as a “insider job”.

  20. xu says:

    Jung Kim is the killer.

    He has blood on his hands.

  21. Jung Kim says:

    Why would anyone kill our bright young student ?

    Life is too short to commit crime like this one.

  22. Melissa says:

    This killer and Jung Kim, certainly have a lot of things in common. LOL

  23. Jung Kim says:

    I hope that person/student in question is not a viet.

  24. N says:

    People, you have to address Giun Kim correctly before he can answer you! FBI profiler would pick Giun Kim as the best candidate for this case.
    (I know it’s bad taste for this article but xu & Melissa started it first, also there are some weird things about this Giun Kim people have to watch out for, you’ve been warned.)

  25. Country First says:

    It is only proper and appropriate for all of us to maintain civil decorum during the mourning period for the victim.

  26. Jung Kim says:

    Police has officially identified the body as Annie Le. One professor said “the killer is among us.

  27. SwineQueen says:

    The Police has not confirmed it, but sources indicate that a Yale Lab technician is the only suspect in this case. He got defensive sratches on his chest and failed the lie detector test.
    He’s under surveillance 24/24 now and the arrest is imminent.

    He’s probably obsessed and been stalked Annie for a while (but Annie was not aware of it) and decided to make his move when he reallized that Annie was about to get married.

  28. Jung Kim says:

    Poor Annie.

  29. Melissa says:

    Yes, poor Annie Le.

    Jung Kim, spare us of your fake sentiment.
    I doubt that you would have any feeling for the poor girl or any human alive….ops I forgot, you DO have a space in your heart for Van Tran and Andy Quach, my bad.

  30. Jung Kim says:

    I hope arrest can be made soon now.

    This is a tragedy for our viet community.

  31. N says:

    Rest in peace Annie Le!

    Here are the warning signs of a killer among us:
    - Obsessed with a female: Giun Kim obsessed with Janet
    - Violent and derogatory remarks toward women: Giun Kim’s axe mark to Melissa
    - Foul language: Giun Kim profanities are everywhere
    - Imbalance mentality: Giun Kim is well known as a crazy idiot

  32. Jung Kim says:

    From this tragedy we need to learn to appreciate our family members even more today ………. and continue to pray for Annie Le.

    This life is priceless. May God comfort Annie’s family.
