Police serve warrants in Yale grad student slaying


MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP) -- Police in Connecticut say they've executed search warrants on a person of interest in the slaying of a Yale University graduate student.

They say two search warrants for DNA and other physical evidence have been served at the apartment of 24-year-old Raymond Clark III.

Clark was handcuffed and escorted out of the apartment building and into a silver car. Neighbors leaned over the building's iron railings and cheered as he was led away. No charges have been filed.

Authorities say Clark will be released after police get the evidence they need from him and his apartment.

The New Haven police chief isn't describing Clark as a suspect. He says police are hoping to compare DNA taken from him to more than 150 pieces of evidence collected from the crime scene.

Graduate student Annie Le (lay) vanished one week ago. Her body was discovered Sunday in the basement of a research building at Yale's medical school.
