On the day she was to be married, the remains of missing Yale med student Annie Le have been found. From CNN:

Le's body was discovered Sunday, hidden in a basement wall in a medical research building. The 24-year-old graduate student in pharmacology, who had been scheduled to get married the day her remains were found, was last seen entering the building Tuesday morning.

Elsewhere in the building, bloody clothes were found hidden above tiles in a drop ceiling, investigators said.

Le's death is being investigated as a homicide, but Connecticut medical examiners released no further information beyond the identification.

A Yale professor told CNN on Monday that the building has good security and only certain people can enter, let alone access certain areas. Professor Gary Rudnick, who interviewed Le when she applied for admission to the graduate program in pharmacology, said it gives him the sense that there could be a "murderer among us. "
