      The officer received permission to enter each of
  the resident’s rooms to search for marijuana. The of-
  ficer then proceeded to pat down everyone present
  in the room.
      The officer found that one resident had .6 grams
  of marijuana in his pocket along with a grinder.
      This student was given a notice to appear, and for
  lack of cooperation, nine other students present were
  referred to Student Conduct.

   Lewis said police had narrowed the list
of suspects down based on who had access            StAtUe
to the building, what time they entered,
and where security cameras placed those
people inside the building at various times.
The New Haven Register reported that the
technician had failed a polygraph test, in-
voked his Fifth Amendment rights during
a police interview and had scratches on his
chest, possibly indicating a struggle. Lewis
declined to confirm those details.
   Meanwhile, the Connecticut chief medi-

from announcing what killed Le, saying
police and prosecutors specifically asked
that the information be withheld to aid
the probe. The Hartford Courant reported
last night that Le died of asphyxiation, but
Lewis declined to reveal the cause publicly .
   Le was scheduled to marry Jonathan
Widawsky, a Columbia University student
from Huntington, but she disappeared a
