Police found the body of 24-year-old Le on Sunday, Sept. 13, the day she was supposed to be getting married.

The pharmacology graduate student was last seen on campus surveillance video on Sept. 8.

A sad and concerned student body gathered at Cross Campus to mourn Le while local authorities questioned a "person of interest."

Le's death, the first killing at Yale in a decade, has shaken some on the Ivy League campus.

"I'm not walking at nights by myself anymore," said student Natoya Peart, 21, of Jamaica. "It could happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere."

Twenty-year-old Muneeb Sultan said he's shocked that a killing could take place in a secure Yale building.

"It's a frightening idea that there's a murderer walking around on campus," said Sultan, a chemistry student.

No charges have been filed, and no arrests have been made. Le was engaged to Jonathan Widawsky, a Columbia University graduate student from Long Island. Police do not consider him a suspect in Le's death.
