(Newser) – Raymond Clark, the prime suspect in the killing of Yale graduate student Annie Le, was the last person to see her alive, records of their computer swipe cards show. A source familiar with the records tells the Hartford Courant that Le used the card to gain access to the same part of the lab that Clark entered a short time later, and Le’s card was never used again.

Connecticut authorities are now testing DNA samples taken from Clark, who was detained and released last night, and from his home. “It’s all up to the lab now,” New Haven’s police chief said tonight. With only Clark, 24, under suspicion, if there’s a match, “we’ll be going for an arrest warrant.”
