Harvard Comedy Show Makes Fun Of Yale Student Annie Le’s Murder

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — A comedy news show run by Harvard University students is making light of last year’s murder of a Yale University graduate student in a new parody video.

“On Harvard Time” released “Why Did I Choose Yale?” on Tuesday ahead of this weekend’s annual Yale-Harvard football game.

The spoof of a Yale admissions office video refers to Annie Le’s (LAY’s) killing when a prospective student asks a tour guide, “What happened to that girl that got murdered and stuffed in a wall?”

The 24-year-old Le’s body was found behind a research lab wall in 2009. A former lab technician, Raymond Clark III, has pleaded not guilty to killing Le.

The Yale Daily News said the video’s creators were guilty of “gross insensitivity.”

“On Harvard Time” said it expected to later release an official statement.
