The authorities are maintaining a one-block perimeter around 10 Amistad St. this morning as the investigation continues into the apparent killing of Annie Le GRD ’13, who was found yesterday hidden behind a wall in the building’s basement.

Predictably, the area behind the police cordon is something of a media circus, with camera crews packing virtually every inch of the sidewalk near the intersection of Cedar Street and Washington Avenue. Le’s apparent killing was the top story on NBC’s “Today” show, which had a correspondent broadcast live from Washington Avenue at precisely 7 a.m., and representatives from all of Connecticut’s local television stations were also on hand.
