Arrest has been made in the case of Annie Le

The alleged killer of Annie Le has finally been caught.

Raymond Clark III, a technician in the lab where Annie Le conducted research, was arrested Thursday, a day after authorities took DNA samples from him to compare with evidence from the crime scene. Le’s body was found hidden behind a wall on what should have been her wedding day.

Police have said they don’t know the motive. “The only person who knows the motive is the suspect,” Chief James Lewis told The Associated Press in a telephone interview Friday. “It’s true in many cases. You never know absolutely unless the person confesses, and in this case it’s too early to tell.” Reports say it appears to be a case of workplace violence.

I am glad they caught the alleged killer and that they have enough evidence to keep him in jail. I don’t see why understanding the motive is so important. More importantly, prosecutors may face difficult questions in Clark’s trial about why they didn’t restrict access to the lab after Le was reported missing, legal experts said. Le disappeared on a Tuesday, and authorities didn’t close it until the weekend. Clark apparently attempted to clean up the evidence of the crime afterwards.
