MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP) - Police have left the apartment of a Yale University animal research technician after searching the scene for hours overnight looking for evidence in the killing of a graduate student who worked in the same lab.

Raymond Clark III was taken into custody Tuesday night at his apartment in Middletown, Conn., so officials could collect DNA samples.

Clark has been described as a person of interest, not a suspect, in the death of Annie Le. Her body was found stuffed behind a wall in the laboratory Sunday.

Overnight, Connecticut State Police officers sorted through items on a card table set up outside the apartment's door.

A tow truck took away a red Ford Mustang neighbors say was used by Clark.
