Raymond Clark III, whose DNA matched evidence at the Yale crime scene, tried to cover his tracks.

According to LA Times columnists Alaine Griffin Owen’s Lab tech’s DNA matched evidence in Annie Le slaying, source says Raymond Clark III, whose DNA matched evidence at the Yale crime scene, tried to cover his tracks, a source says. – As FBI agents and Yale University police combed the basement of a laboratory building for missing bride-to-be Annie Le, the man accused of killing her moved among them in an apparent effort to cover his tracks, a law enforcement official familiar with the investigation said. That behavior aroused suspicions about Raymond Clark III, but the final piece that led to his arrest Thursday was the discovery that evidence in the ceiling and in the crawl space where Le’s body was found contained the DNA from both Le and Clark, according to the law enforcement official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing. Clark, 24, was arrested at a Super 8 Motel in Cromwell, Conn., and charged with murder. One investigator, among a group who were in the lab interviewing employees and students shortly after Le disappeared, reported witnessing Clark trying to hide lab cleaning equipment that they later discovered contained blood spatters. Clark was observed cleaning up areas Le was in before she was reported missing, the law enforcement official said. Sources familiar with the investigation said that a combination of factors led to Clark’s arrest:

                   1. an analysis of computer records of security cards that showed Clark was the last person to see Le alive, his failed polygraph and scratches on his body, his attempts to clean up the crime scene and ultimately the DNA match in two places.

                   2.Police believe that Le fought for her life. Investigators found a single bead from a necklace she was wearing in the lab area where she was last seen. They also found tiny blood droplets in that area.

                   3.Clark also had scratches and bruises on his arms and back. When he was interviewed by FBI agents, Clark said the scratches were cuts from a cat and from playing softball. The sources said authorities were investigating further into the scratches. Computer records of his swipe card show he left the building several times and also moved between several rooms, including some that he had no reason to be in, a source said.

Readers, clearly Ray Clark is guilty.  Yes he will get his day in court but this guy dug his own grave and basically threw himself in.  I’m going to say this is a closed case.  Hopefully now Annie Le’s parents can put her body to rest peacefully.  May God be with you Annie Le.  We’re all praying for you.

Until next time, SPEAK YO MIND!!!!!!
