Raymond Clark III, the person of interest named in the investigation into the murder of Annie Le GRD ’13, was released from custody at 3 a.m. after complying with the two search warrants served last night, New Haven Police Department spokesman Joe Avery said.
Avery said he does not know Clark’s current whereabouts.
The warrants, to search Clark’s house and take DNA samples, have been sealed and are not publicly available, State’s Attorney Michael Dearington said, because their release could compromise an ongoing investigation.
“This goes on all over the country, there’s nothing unusual about it,” he said. “It’s as commonly accepted as the validity of the U.S. Constitution.”
