The Associated Press reports that New Haven police have identified a “person of interest” in the case, a Yale animal research technician who lives in the Wharfside Commons apartment complex in Middletown, right off Main Street between Green and Washington Streets:
An official parked outside the complex, about 20 miles away near Hartford, wouldn’t confirm whether police were there to investigate the Le killing, but public records show the technician lives in a first-floor apartment. A man answering the door Tuesday said the technician wasn’t at home and closed the door.
Neighbors said authorities in unmarked cars arrived Monday afternoon and frequently follow and pull over drivers in the complex. New Haven police would not comment on the efforts there.
Police are analyzing what they call “a large amount” of physical evidence but have not gone into detail.
Again, no reason for panic, just another weird development in an already bizarre case.
