(Newser) – Connecticut authorities took a “person of interest” into custody tonight in connection with the investigation into the death of a Yale graduate student, WCBS-TV reports. Raymond Clark, a lab technician who worked with Annie Le, also 24, has been in authorities’ sights the past few days; they have a warrant to take a DNA sample from him, the New Haven Independent adds, and may release him afterward.
