(Newser) – Connecticut's state medical examiner says Yale University grad student Annie Le died of traumatic asphyxiation, meaning she was strangled. Dr. Wayne Carver's office released a short statement about the autopsy today, three days after 24-year-old Le was found hidden inside the basement wall of a Yale medical school research building.

Police have called Yale lab technician Raymond Clark III a "person of interest" in the case and have collected DNA and other physical evidence. No charges have been filed.
