NEW HAVEN, Conn. (CBS/AP) A lawyer for the family of slain Yale University graduate student Annie Le says they are considering suing the school over its hiring of murder suspect Raymond Clark III.
Attorney Brian King said Wednesday that Le's family is questioning whether Yale officials properly investigated Clark's background before hiring him for a technician's job at a lab building where Le also worked. King also said there are questions about the way Yale officials looked into Le's disappearance.
The 24-year-old's body was found stuffed behind a wall at the lab on Sept. 13, 2009. Clark is charged with killing her five days earlier, Sept. 8, making Wednesday the anniversary of her disappearance.
He has pleaded not guilty to murder charges.
A Yale spokesman didn't immediately return a message Wednesday.
