(Newser) – A body believed to be that of a Yale graduate student missing since Tuesday has been found, the New Haven Independent reports. Annie Le, 24, had last been seen in the building that housed her lab; "we are assuming" the remains found within a wall in the basement of that building are hers, said a police official. The case is now being investigated as a homicide.

"Our hearts go out to Annie Le’s family, fiancé and friends, who must suffer the additional ordeal of waiting for the body to be identified," the university's president said in an email to the Yale community with the subject line "Tragic News."
