The monster, Raymond Clark, has been arrested for the murder of Annie Le. Former colleagues, are coming forward stating that Clark was a control freak at work. That possibly Annie’s murder was fueled by an argument the two could have had at work.
Yesterday, Clark appeared in court with two public defenders who were new to the case. A private-practice attorney who had represented him during the investigation did not attend the hearing and said Thursday he no longer represents Clark. The attorney declined to give a reason.
ABC News reported, co-workers told police that Clark was a “control freak” who viewed the laboratory and its mice as his territory, according to a law enforcement official who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing and many details remain sealed.
The official said police are looking into whether Clark’s attitude led to a deadly workplace confrontation with Le, who was just 4-foot-11 and 90 pounds. But investigators say that’s just a theory at this point.
The investigator also said authorities do not necessarily need to prove a motive because they have an abundance of strong forensic evidence.
Two friends of Clark’s since childhood, appearing on CNN’s Larry King Live on Thursday night, said they were stunned by the murder allegations and could not reconcile them with the young man they’ve known for years.
“That’s not the Raymond Clark I’ve talked to my whole entire life,” Bobby Heslin said.
That’s what everyone says. Everyone has a dark side, some are much darker than others. Thoughts and prayers go out to Annie Le’s family. Hopefully, Raymond Clark will plead guilty so they can avoid a trail.
