Annie Le....anyone following this story?

This is the saddest, most upsetting story I've seen in a long time

sounds like this is from a movie So sad, I can't imagine what her fiance must be feeling right now I used to work in a similar environment doing research as an undergrad along with the rest of the professor's research team and this brings goosebumps to me, I know how security typically is, you can't typically get in without swiping a card- and doors are always locked so this means there is a pretty high chance that someone working there could have done this..

Sad is the only word I have to share. The Killer has got to be someone who knew the building. Very sad news.

I've been following it as well. I was hoping it would end better than this.

Because of the monitoring, the list of suspects should be small. Hope they can find this monster soon. I am so sad for her friends and loved ones.

I'm suspicious of the professor. He sounds like a real creep.

I heard they found this poor girl's body hidden in a wall.

Is the professor you're referring to the same one who said, "Focused, disciplined, well-rounded, vibrant and actually this teacher's favorite student of all time." ?

Anyone heard anymore?? I heard they have arrested some guy but that is all I know. Why would someone do this?? It is horrible, this poor girl and her family.

They arrested a lab technician who worked with Le.

Worse is that its looking like its workplace violence, not even any personal or romantic history there.

i just can't imagine why someone would take someone elses life and ruin their own over 'workplace violence'?

I don't think any of us could ever understand it. My dad who is the one who always updates me on current events was saying that she probably did something to provoke him, but I honestly don't think there is anything that can provoke a normal person to the point of killing. I think he's just mentally disturbed...

Seeing the current reports, it looks like this guy is the classic control freak type that we have discussed here.

Yup, I've been watching WAYYYYY too much TV since I've got to the hospital, so I feel like I know all the details of all the major stories in the world today lol. It's on in the background right now actually. I just can't get over it- they say it's just a case of workplace violence. A little competition is understandable, but this is just crazy.

Did anyone hear what type of lab it exactly was though??? It was an animal testing lab... That needs to be addressed too I think just as much as this.

Anyone who participates in animal testing IS mentally disturbed IMO. They said that he was so controlling to the point of harassment. And the text message that she sent him (I think that's the order, lol) said that her mouse cages were dirty, and that that could've possibly set him off. Now that's sick if that's the reason for her murder..... What a freak!


Quick question, hope someone can answer this... How the heck would he stuff her in/behind a wall? I mean, a wall is a wall, right? This may sound really stupid (probably the weird meds they're making me take... ) but wouldn't he have to fill in the part of the wall that he stuffed her into? Or am I really just clueless and dumb?

There was presumably a trapdoor to allow access to the pipes in the cavity where he stuffed her.

Thanks!!! I guess I missed that part

It was a pharmacology lab. Just your typical university lab I would guess since she was a phd student. Unfortuately animals are used in a lot of those labs, the genetics lab I worked at used mice and for each experiment someone had to kill a mouse and take its liver then extract proteins from it Yea I'm sure glad I'm no longer there.. But that would mean that Annie Le and all of the other phd students used the animals also- not just the murderer. It's creepy for me to think about it because usually, people who have access to these buildings can go in any time of day, even in the middle of the night, and a lot of phd students do stay there very late, sometimes all alone in a very large building. When I work at my genetics lab, that part always scared me..the whole thing with Annie Le is just like a horror movie

I agree, it could have been any school where this happened. I've gone in around midnight to catch up on work, and have found other students still there. What's even creepier about this story is that it happened in the middle of the day.
