More evidence surfaces in Yale slaying
Among the new police evidence which is being used against accused Yale murderer Ray Clark is the fact that he was seen by police attempting to hide a blood spatter in the room where Yale lab tech Annie Le was killed by covering it with a box of wipes.
Clark was also said to have knelt on the floor in front of surprised investigators in order to scrub a drain with SOS pads, even though the drain appeared clean.
There were many signs of "a violent struggle" between Clark and Annie Le, the 24 year old post-graduate student whom he is alleged to have killed during a work related argument in the Yale University lab in September.
The only new details about the finding of Le's body is that she wore latex surgical gloves on both hands, and that the left thumb had been exposed due to tearing.
In room G13 where Le was killed, there was a "possible medium velocity blood-like spray pattern on the wall," it states. Blood was found on a sock, a lab coat, rubber gloves and medical scrubs. When Le's body was found, she was wearing rubber gloves that she used while working in the lab, but the thumb on one glove was exposed. Her alleged attacker, Clark, had a scratch on his face and one on his left bicep.
In addition, when her body was discovered, much of the hidden area was smeared with blood-like stains, the warrant states. Details about the state of Le's body are redacted in the warrant.
The arrest warrant also notes that in the week before Le's disappearance, security key cards indicated that Clark has suddenly developed an interest in the rooms where Le worked, entering room G13 and G22 as often as 11 times a day. Previously, Clark entered those rooms only three times a day, the report states. . .
[. . . ]While authorities waited for officers from the FBI to arrive to look at the box of blood spattered wipes, Clark entered the lab and shifted the box so the blood would not be in plain view.
Clark then proceeded to stand in front of the cart where the wipes were placed and make small talk with one of the officers, a move noted in the documents to be a "deliberate attempt by Clark to block her view of the box in question." . . .
