Annie Le Laid to Rest Today

The funeral of murdered Yale student Annie Le was held Saturday at 1:30 p.m. in Holy Trinity Church in Eldorado Hills, California, and burial services took place in a cemetery outside Sacramento. Her mother read a touching poem she wrote in Vietnamese to her daughter. "You left life at too young an age, at the beginning of many great things. All the dreams and hopes of your future gone with you to your resting place," she read. Family spokesman Rev. Dennis Smith stated: "The family requests that their privacy continue to be respected during this time of loss and grief,” reports the Hartford Courant. In spite of Smith’s request, Fox News broadcast a live stream of the service from its Web site. Le’s fiancé held a memorial service for her in his family’s Long Island synagogue earlier this week. The body of the 24-year-old graduate student was found in the research building where she worked, the same day she was scheduled to be married. Yale lab tech Raymond Clark III has been charged in connection with her death.
