NEW HAVEN, Conn. (CBS/AP) Police say the killing of a person whose body was found stuffed behind a wall in a high-security laboratory building at Yale University is not a random act.

That body is widely believed to be that of 24-year-old Yale graduate student Annie Le, who went missing five days before her wedding.

New Haven police spokesman Joe Avery told The Associated Press on Monday that police don't believe that anyone else on the campus is in danger.

MSNBC has reported that police have a suspect and that he has defensive wounds. Avery would not confirm that information and said no one is in custody.

She was last seen in the building on Tuesday. An autopsy is being performed to verify that the body is Le's.
