DNA from the Yale lab tech suspected in the murder of grad student Annie Le has been linked to her death, sources tell the New Haven Register. Raymond Clark, 24, is expected to be arrested today, and is currently under police surveillance at the Connecticut motel where he's staying. The DNA results emerged as investigators were poring over Clark's red Ford Mustang and conducting a second search of his home. The state crime lab is examining some 250 pieces of evidence.

A former high school sweetheart has revealed she had a troubling relationship with Clark, who continued to stalk her and forced her to have sex after she ended their relationship, reports the New York Post. Investigators suspected Clark in Le's death because of scrapes, scratches and bruises on his body, which he attributed to his cat and softball. "He had excuses for everything," said a law enforcement source. Clark was arrested earlier this week but released.
