HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The family of a Yale University graduate student killed in a research lab before her wedding day in 2009 is suing the school, claiming it had failed to adequately protect women on campus for years.
The wrongful death lawsuit was filed by the family of Annie Le (LAY’) late Tuesday afternoon in New Haven Superior Court.
The strangled body of the 24-year-old Placerville native was found at the Yale research lab on Sept. 13, 2009, the same day as her scheduled wedding and five days after she disappeared.
An animal research technician in the same building, Raymond Clark III, is serving 44 years in prison for the murder.
Yale officials say there’s no basis for the lawsuit and no additional security measures could have prevented the killing.
