Body is missing Yale grad student

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut's chief medical examiner says the body found hidden behind a wall in a Yale University research building is that of a missing graduate student.

Dr. Wayne Carver says 24-year-old Annie Le's death is a homicide. He says he's temporarily withholding the cause of death "in order to facilitate the investigation."

Le vanished from the Yale medical building on last Tuesday, prompting a massive search that included more than 100 state, federal and local police. Her body was discovered hidden in a wall Sunday.

Police have said they do not yet have a suspect, but say the killing was targeted and students are not in danger.
