NEW HAVEN, Conn. (CBS/AP) The 24-year-old bride-to-be, who had been missing since Tuesday, apparently met a violent death in a secure Yale University building accessible only to students and staff, police said Sunday on what was supposed to be her wedding day.

Authorities have said little about the investigation.

They hadn't positively identified the body found hidden in a wall Sunday, but they were assuming it was Annie Le's and treating her disappearance as a homicide.

State police found the body in a building in Yale's medical complex, about a mile from the main campus. It was in an area that houses utility cables that run between floors.

The university planned a candlelight vigil at 8 p.m. Monday at the Ivy League university. The Yale Daily News says an e-mail to the Yale community invites participants to "bring a candle and join us in solidarity."

Just seven months before Le went missing, the graduate student wrote a magazine article about how to stay safe on the streets around the Ivy League school.
