Family of slain grad student may sue Yale
NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- A lawyer for relatives 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 Annie Le's family is questioning whether Yale officials properly investigated suspect Raymond Clark III's background before hiring him as a technician at a lab building where Le also worked.
A spokesman says an aunt and uncle who raised Le in California are not part of the lawsuit.
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.
He has pleaded not guilty to murder charges.
A Yale spokesman says the school hasn't been notified of any anticipated lawsuits.
