                                  NEW HAVEN SUPERIOR COURT
 
2010 - January 27 - The prosecution has added a charge of felony murder.
                             This would allow a jury to convict Clark of killing Annie
                             Le even if the death happened unintentionally in the
                             process of committing another felony.
 
                            (If a jury concludes Le's death was unintentional, the
                             prosecution can still get a conviction if it shows that
                             Clark killed her in the course of another major crime,
                             such as kidnapping, robbery or rape.)
 
                             Raymond Clark waived his right to a probable cause
                             hearing, at which prosecutors would have had to show
                             that they had enough evidence to proceed.

                             Raymond Clark III is still being held in jail on $3 million  
                             bail. Clark has pled Not Guilty.
 
 
Beth Merkin (Attorney for Raymond Clark "In any hypothetical homicide, 
                     felony murder ensures the prosecution won't get boxed in. It
                     provides for alternate theories to be made about the crime."
 
                               Another defense motion was granted. Judge Fasano
                               allowed Clark's mother's vehicle (seized during the
                               investigation for evidence) to be returned, but with the
                               proviso that the prosecution has the right to use the
                               car for secondary evidence should this case go to trial.
 
                               A seal remains on search and seizure warrants that
                               have not been released.
 
2010 May 6 -  Judge grants motion by defense on behalf of their client Raymond
                     Clark III charged with the brutal murder of Annie Le.
                    
                     Judge Roland Fasano granted the motion filed by the defense
                     requiring prosecutors to provide a bill of particulars (a routine
                     procedure) stating specific details of their case.
 
                    
 
 Events, information up to, and including, the trial will be posted here.

unfortunately the justice system is crooked and flawed. it’s unfortunate that even though there is a mountain of evidence against this evil excuse of a human being, raymond clark, they still do not give annie the justice she deserves. i bet you that annie scratched raymond to show us that he was the one that did these cruel things to her and raymond claimed that coincidently a cat scratched him?!?! his clothes were found with his dna and annie’s in the ceiling?! can it not be more apparent who did it? but no, we have a flawed system who upholds and protects murderers and thieves. i wouldn’t be surprised if all the jurors were rednecks or who didn’t even listen to the evidence against raymond, but decided to let him go because he looks like he’s innocent, he looks like he is attractive, he looks like a young man, from yale who could go far… but no one ever asked or looked at the evidence against him and the life he took away and no one cared about how this loss has affected those close to annie. no one gave her justice. her chance at life was cut short… i thought the justice system was suppose to protect the innocent… but it just lets the wicked go free. what a sick society we live in

It's the only system we have. Yes, it could be better.

Raymond Clark III hasn't been tried yet. And no jury selected yet. He's still in jail, he
and his family couldn't make the $3 million bail the judge set. So it's hand and leg
cuffs and a jail suit for him for now.

I believe Annie Le fought for her life, and in doing so left enough evidence that will
convict him. When the trial comes about, I'll bet the DA presents more than enough
evidence to show that he's the only one who could, and did, murder Annie.

an eye for an eye , teeth for teeth. God Forgive him < Jesus Christ for give him but he have to pay for the blood he shed. The law system should let him die ASAP to help release for both families.

2010 - September 9 -

There are reports of Annie Le's family suing Yale over her death.

Attorney Brian King (Attorney for Vivan Le, Annie's biological mother)
"Vivian Le hired myself and a private investigator to determine whether Annie
could have been saved if Yale police had acted more quickly, and whether a
more thorough background check might have prevented the hiring of the
lab technican charged with her murder."


Kevin Eckery (Spokesman for Robert Nguyen and Tuyet Bui, Annie Le's
aunt and uncle who raised Annie & her brother Chris from childhood)
"Annie Le's aunt and uncle have no plans to sue Yale University or anybody
else. They are not passing any judgement on Vivian Le's decision to pursue
an independent investigation and possible lawsuit. Everyone grieves in their
own way."

                                   ANNIE LE FELLOWSHIP

The Annie Le Fellowship was created by a $100,000 gift from the Yale Corporation,
and it goes to an outstanding graduate student studying the biological and biomedical
sciences.

In the wake of Le’s death, members of many parts of the Yale community came
together to forge a scholarship fund that would commemorate her life and exemplary
spirit in a lasting way by supporting the work of current graduate students. Soon after,
the Yale Corporation established the Annie Le Fellowship to provide assistance to
doctoral candidates in the BBS program “whose demonstrated commitment to bettering
the world around them and outstanding record and research exemplify the qualities
represented in the life and career of Annie Le.”

“Annie Le was an exemplary student, and someone who was concerned about the
community in which she lived. And so we thought that the fellowship really would
emphasize those two qualities—that is, the capacity of someone to really be an
absolutely outstanding student, who also was concerned about the larger world in
which he or she lives. We thought it was a really appropriate way to commemorate
her life and her time at Yale,” says Jon Butler, Ph.D., the Howard R. Lamar
Professor of American Studies, History, and Religious Studies. Butler was dean
of Yale’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences when Le died, and he oversaw the
implementation of the new fellowship.

“Annie came to Yale to study and train as a biomedical scientist,” says Elias Lolis,
Ph.D., associate professor of pharmacology and Le’s former doctoral supervisor.
“She also cared about people and treated everyone with respect. It is for these
reasons that Yale University established this fellowship in her memory.”

2010 - September 8 - It is one year ago that Annie Le disappeared and was subsequently
                                 discovered murdered.

Yale Vice President and Secretary Linda K. Lorimer released a statement Wednesday 
 about Annie Le's memory and fellowship. It read;

"As we begin the new academic year at Yale, we remember with great sadness the
tragic death of Annie Le one year ago.

"Her senseless killing was a traumatic loss for her family, her fiancé, her friends and
 for all of us in the Yale community. The grief across our community was profound,
and we continue to mourn and extend our sympathies and support to those closest
to her. We also remain grateful for the tireless dedication of all those in law
enforcement who have pursued justice in the case.

"Annie's life and work is honored at Yale through a fellowship established in her
memory. The Annie Le Fellowship will benefit doctoral students in the Biological
and Biomedical Sciences Program. Annie was a bright, highly accomplished and
spirited student who shared her joy of life and learning with many.

There is no better way to keep her spirit alive than by supporting future students who
we hope will make as lasting an impression on our University as she did."
