Family of Slain Yale Grad Student May Sue School

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) – A lawyer for the family of a slain Yale University graduate student says they are considering suing the school over its hiring of the suspect and the way Yale officials
looked into her disappearance.

Attorney Brian King said Wednesday that slaying victim Annie Le's family is questioning whether Yale officials properly investigated suspect Raymond Clark III's background before hiring
him for a technician's job 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 is charged with killing her five days earlier, making Wednesday the anniversary of her disappearance.

He has pleaded not guilty to murder charges. A Yale spokesman didn't immediately return a message Wednesday.
