Police: No arrest imminent in Yale student's death


NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) -- Police in New Haven, Connecticut, say they have no suspects in custody and do no expect to make any arrests today in the killing of Yale graduate student Annie Le.

The 24-year-old's body was found inside a wall in the basement of a university research building on Sunday, the day she was to have been married.

Several news organizations had been reporting that police were interviewing a possible suspect who had failed a polygraph tests and has defensive wounds on his body. Two organizations identified the suspect as a lab technician.

Police say they are "talking to a lot of people," but describe reports that they have somebody in custody as "made up."

Meanwhile, the Connecticut medical examiner's office says it plans to release the results of Le's autopsy this afternoon. Her death was ruled a homicide yesterday, but the medical examiner declined to say how Le died. Police say they are analyzing "a large amount" of physical evidence.
