NEW HAVEN, Conn. (CBS/AP) The Connecticut medical examiner is withholding autopsy results on Yale graduate student Annie Le at the request of prosecutors.

Dr. Wayne Carver says prosecutors asked that the results be withheld "in order to facilitate the investigation" into the killing of 24-year-old Le.

It wasn't clear when the results would be released. Carver's office had announced Monday that the death was a homicide but hasn't reported the manner of Le's death.

She vanished Sept. 8 from a Yale University research building, and her body was found five days later in a wall in the basement.

New Haven police say they've interviewed about 150 people in the case but did not expect to make an arrest Tuesday.
