I was just reading on TMZ about a lady named Sherri Allred who is suing Hugh Hefner for 1 billion dollars, claiming he molested her when she was 5 and that he is part of a pedophile organization. She says she is a hat and the whole world can hear her thoughts. She is a little out there but it appears to me to be Project Monarch type programming. She says she comes from money, her Dad was a sheriff. you can read her lawsuit on TMZ. Did anyone else see this?

I read part of this woman's written charges and they are nonsensical. But her charges are striking as I too have heard of a secret, Hollywood cabal of pedophiles. Hugh Hefner supposedly kept a little girl at the mansion on occassion.

Sheriff: Kidnap victim, children kept in backyard compound
NEW: Kidnapped girl grew up, had children with captor, sheriff says
Sex offender admitted to having abducted girl in South Lake Tahoe, police say
Phillip Garrido, Nancy Garrido booked on charges related to kidnapping
Jaycee Dugard disappeared in South Lake Tahoe, California, at age 11 in 1991
updated 6:36 a.m. EDT, Fri August 28, 2009Next Article in Crime »
(CNN) -- An 11-year-old California girl snatched from the street in front of her house in 1991 had two children with the man accused of taking her and was forced along with the children to live in backyard sheds, police said Thursday.
Jaycee Lee Dugard as she looked in 1991 and an age-progression image of what she might look like as an adult.
1 of 3 "From what they have both said, he fathered both of those children with Jaycee [Dugard]," El Dorado County Undersheriff Fred Kollar told reporters.
The girls, now 11 and 15, had been living with their mother, now 29, in a series of sheds behind Phillip Garrido's house in Antioch, California, until they were discovered on Wednesday, Kollar said.
"None of the children had ever gone to school, they had never been to a doctor, they were kept in complete isolation in this compound, if you will, at the rear of the house," he said. "They were born there."
In a rambling telephone interview from jail, Garrido told CNN affiliate KCRA of Sacramento he was relieved at being caught.
"I feel much better now," he said. "This is a process that needed to take place."
Kollar said Garrido's wife, Nancy, was with her husband when Dugard was abducted from the street in front of her house in South Lake Tahoe. Garrido was already a registered sex offender at the time. Watch police talk about why they arrested Garrido »

"There was nothing then nor is there anything now to indicate that this was anything other than a stranger abduction of an 11-year-old," Kollar said.
The investigation went years without apparent progress until Tuesday, when Garrido showed up on the campus of the University of California at Berkeley with his two daughters and attempted to get permission to hand out literature and speak, Kollar said. He did not know the subject of either the literature or the planned talk.
Police officers "thought the interaction between the older male and the two young females was rather suspicious," so she confronted them and performed a background check on him, Kollar said.
That check revealed that Garrido was on federal parole for a 1971 conviction for rape and kidnapping, for which he had served time in the federal penitentiary at Leavenworth, Kansas.
A school spokesman identified the officers as Allison Jacobs and Lisa Campbell, and said the two became suspicious of "subtle behavior" Garrido exhibited.
They passed on the information to Garrido's parole officer, who requested that the 58-year-old man appear Wednesday at the parole office.
Garrido did just that, accompanied by his wife, Nancy, "and a female named Allissa," Kollar said.
The presence of "Allissa" and the two children surprised the parole officer, who had never seen them during visits to Garrido's house, Kollar said.
"Ultimately, Allissa was identified as Dugard," Kollar said.
DNA confirmation is being sought to confirm her identity, but Dugard revealed information during an interview that only she could have known, Kollar said.
"The two minor children turned out to be children of Jaycee and the male suspect, Garrido," he said.
Scott Kernan, undersecretary of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, told reporters that Garrido admitted to having abducted Dugard.
El Dorado County Sheriff's Office online records showed that Phillip and Nancy Garrido were in the county jail, held on suspicion of offenses including conspiracy to commit a crime and kidnapping with the intent to commit robbery and rape.
Dugard had been living behind Garrido's home since she was kidnapped, Kollar said.
But her presence there apparently went unnoticed by others in the residential neighborhood, where homes on one-fourth to one-half-acre lots typically sell for less than $200,000, said Kathy Russo, whose father has lived two houses away from the Garridos for 33 years.
"My dad said he never saw a young woman," said Russo, who added that her father, 94-year-old Dante Confetti, considered Garrido to be a "kind of strange, reclusive, kind of an angry kind of guy."
She said the one-story house's backyard was obscured by trees and ringed by a wooden fence.
Her family's last contact with Garrido was last fall, she said. "He was burning something in the backyard and my home health aide called the fire department," Russo said.
"He was really pissed off," she said. "Came over to the house and started yelling."
Garrido told KCRA that he left documents three days ago with the FBI in San Francisco, California, that would shed light on the case. "They're going to be a part of the trial," he said.
A call from CNN to the FBI's San Francisco bureau was not immediately returned.
Garrido said he could not go into detail about why he chose to abduct Dugard. "I haven't talked to a lawyer yet, so I can't do that," he said.
But Garrido said he had "completely turned my life around" in the past several years. "You're going to find the most powerful story coming from the witness, from the victim," he said. "If you take this a step at a time, you're going to fall over backward and in the end you're going to find the most powerful, heartwarming story."
He added, "Wait 'til you hear the story of what took place at this house. You're going to be absolutely impressed. It's a disgusting thing that took place with me in the beginning, but I turned my life completely around."
Describing the two daughters, he said, "Those two girls slept in my arms every single night from birth; I never kissed them."
But in a later comment, he said that, from the time the youngest was born, "everything turned around."
Asked about the fact that they had not seen doctors, he said, "We just didn't have the finances and so forth."
Kollar said a search of Garrido's property "revealed a hidden backyard within a backyard," he said. It included several sheds no higher than 6 feet tall, two tents and several outbuildings "where Jaycee and the girls spent most of their lives."
The "secondary" backyard was inside the first and was "screened from view." One of the sheds was soundproof, he said.
"The way the backyard is set up you could walk through the backyard, walk through the house and never know that there was another set of living circumstances in that backyard."
At the end of the backyard is a 6-foot fence lined with shrubs, tall trees, garbage bags and a tarp, all of which obscured views of what was there, he said.
Extension cords provided electricity to the sheds and tents, and an outhouse and rudimentary shower "as if you were camping" were there, too, he said.
Dugard "was in good health, but living in a backyard for the past 18 years does take its toll," Kollar said. He described her as "relatively cooperative, relatively forthcoming" in discussions with detectives. He said Dugard was "in relatively good condition," neither obviously abused nor malnourished. He added, "There are no known attempts by her to outreach to anybody."
The mother and her two daughters were staying at a motel in the area, he said. "Family reunification has begun and will be a long and ongoing process," he said, presumably referring to Dugard's parents.
Earlier Thursday, Carl Probyn, Dugard's stepfather, told CNN that an FBI agent had called his wife, Terry, on Wednesday afternoon to tell her that Dugard had been found.
"Jaycee remembers everything," he said. "They talked back and forth and she had the right answers to all my wife's questions."
He said, "I'm feeling great! ... It's like winning the Lotto."
He witnessed the abduction of the blond, blue-eyed girl, who was wearing a pink windbreaker and pink stretch pants as she walked to her bus stop on June 10, 1991. Watch the stepfather describe finding out Jaycee is alive »
At the time, "It was reported that a vehicle occupied by two individuals drove up to Jaycee Dugard and abducted her in view of her stepfather," the El Dorado County Sheriff's office said Thursday.
Ernie Allen, president of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, said the reappearance of Dugard is "absolutely huge."
"One of the things that we preach to searching families all the time ... is that even in these long-term cases there's hope," he said.
"Even in these long-term cases ... it's important that we not let the world forget."

Slideshow:Yale student missing Play Video Video:Search for Yale student turns to incinerator AP Play Video Video:Yale Student's Disappearance Baffles Authorities CBS 3 Philadelphia
By PATRICK SANDERS, Associated Press Writer Patrick Sanders, Associated Press Writer – 29 mins ago
NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Police on Sunday said they found what they believe is the body of a Yale University graduate student and bride-to-be hidden inside the wall of a university building where she was last seen five days before.
New Haven Assistant Police Chief Peter Reichard said officials are presuming the body was that of doctoral student Annie Le, who has been the focus of a massive police search since Tuesday.
"It hasn't been positively identified as of this time," Reichard told reporters Sunday night. "However, we are assuming it is her ... so we are treating it as a homicide."
State police found the body at around 5 p.m. Sunday in an area of the building that houses utility cables that run between floors. The building is in the Ivy League school's medical complex, about a mile from the main campus.
Reichard said police also recovered "a large amount" of physical evidence, but he would not discuss what that included.
Yale President Richard Levin offered support to Le's family and her fiance, Columbia University graduate student Jonathan Widawsky. The couple was to marry Sunday in Syosset, N.Y., on Long Island's north shore.
"The family and fiance and friends now must suffer the additional ordeal of waiting for the body to be positively identified," Levin said. "I met earlier this evening with Annie's family, with her fiance and his family and I conveyed to them all the deeply felt support of the entire university community."
Police on Sunday would not say if they have any suspects. They previously have said Widawsky is not a suspect and is assisting with the investigation.
Le, 24, was last seen Tuesday morning in the five-story building that housed the laboratory where she worked. Surveillance video shows her arriving around 10 a.m., but police had been baffled since the investigation began because there was no video of Le leaving, despite some 75 surveillance cameras operating around the complex. Her ID, money, credit cards and purse were found in her office.
More than 100 local, state and federal police had been searching the building for days, using blueprints to uncover any place where evidence or Le's body could be hidden.
Investigators on Saturday said they recovered evidence from the building, but would not confirm media reports that the items included bloody clothing.
On Sunday morning, a state police van drove down a ramp into the basement area of the building where the lab is located. Authorities also sifted through garbage at a Hartford incinerator Sunday, looking through trash that was taken from the building in the days since Le went missing.
Le, a a pharmacology student from Placerville, Calif., wrote a magazine article earlier this year about how to stay safe around the Ivy League campus.
The article, titled "Crime and Safety in New Haven," was published in February in a magazine produced by Yale's medical school. It compares higher instances of robbery in New Haven with cities that house other Ivy League schools and includes an interview with Yale Police Chief James Perrotti, who offers advice such as "pay attention to where you are" and "avoid portraying yourself as a potential victim."
"In short, New Haven is a city and all cities have their perils," Le concludes. "But with a little street smarts, one can avoid becoming yet another statistic."
Le's disappearance weighed heavily on Yale students, who prayed for her safe return Sunday at The University Church on Yale's campus.
"It has been a week that has tested many people in many different ways," the Rev. Ian Buckner Oliver said just before he gave the Sunday morning sermon. "It has brought up a lot of fears for people. It has brought up a lot of worry and concern for her and for all our safety."
The student-dominated congregation offered a moment of silence and prayer, "for Annie, and her family, who have arrived here in New Haven, for her fiance, on this, what would have been their wedding day. Let's lift them up in our prayers," Oliver said.
Associated Press reporter David Collins in Hartford and freelance reporter Katie Nelson in New Haven contributed to this report.

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Clues increasingly pointed to an inside job Monday in the slaying of a Yale graduate student whose body was found stuffed inside a wall five days after she vanished from a heavily secured lab building accessible only to university employees.
Police on Monday sought to calm fears on the Ivy League campus, saying the death of 24-year-old Annie Le was a targeted act but would not say why anyone would want to kill the young woman just days before she was to be married.
"We're not believing it's a random act," said officer Joe Avery, a police spokesman. No one else is in danger, he said, though he would not provide details other than to say that police believe no other students were involved. He also denied broadcast reports that police had a suspect in custody.
Yale officials said the building where Le worked would reopen under increased security. Still, some students worried about their safety.
"I'm not walking at nights by myself anymore," said student Natoya Peart, 21, of Jamaica. "It could happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere."
Michael Vishnevetsky, 21, of New York, said he did not feel safe when he made a late trip to his lab Sunday in a different building. "It felt very different than how I usually felt," he said.
Twenty-year-old Muneeb Sultan said he's shocked that a killing could take place in a secure Yale building.
"It's a frightening idea that there's a murderer walking around on campus," said Sultan, a chemistry student.
Police found Le's body about 5 p.m. Sunday, the day she was to marry Columbia University graduate student Jonathan Widawsky, lovingly referred to on her Facebook page as "my best friend." The couple met as undergraduates at the University of Rochester and were eagerly awaiting their planned wedding on Long Island.
Police have said Widawsky is not a suspect and helped detectives in their investigation.
The building where the body was found is part of the university medical school complex about a mile from Yale's main campus. It is accessible to Yale personnel with identification cards. Some 75 video surveillance cameras monitor all doorways.
The body was found in the basement in the wall chase — a deep recess where utilities and cables run between floors. The basement houses rodents, mostly mice, used for scientific testing by multiple Yale researchers, said Robert Alpern, dean of the Yale University School of Medicine.
Le was part of a research team headed by her faculty adviser, Anton Bennett. According to its Web site, the Bennett Laboratory was involved in enzyme research that could have implications in cancer, diabetes and muscular dystrophy. Bennett declined to comment Monday on the lab or Le's involvement with it.
Le's office was on the third floor of the five-story building, where authorities found her wallet, keys, money and purse.
Campus officials have said that the security network recorded Le entering the building by swiping her ID card about 10 a.m. Tuesday. She was never seen leaving.
Yale closed the building Monday so police could complete their investigation, according to a message sent to Yale students and staff. Scientists are being allowed in only to conduct essential research projects, and only under the supervision of a police officer.
Police activity continued at the crime scene early Monday evening, as uniformed officers with police dogs and workers wearing white suits to protect them from hazardous materials went in and out of the building.
When the building reopens, there will be extra security both inside and outside, said Yale Secretary and Vice President Linda Lorimer.
Police are analyzing what they call "a large amount" of physical evidence.
A friend said Monday that Le never showed signs of worry about her own personal safety at work, though she did express concerns about crime in New Haven in an article she wrote in February for the medical school's magazine.
"If she was concerned about (it) she would have said something to someone, and they would have known," Jennifer Simpson told CBS' "The Early Show." "And Jon (her fiance) would have known, her family would have known, friends would have known."
Simpson said Le, a pharmacology student from Placerville, Calif., was friendly to everyone.
"She was a people person," Simpson said. "She loved people. She loved life. We just can't imagine anybody wanting to harm Annie."
In the Sierra foothills community east of Sacramento where Le went to high school, she was seen as a high achiever who knew early on that she wanted a career in medicine.
In a Union Mine High School yearbook from 2003, Le said her long-term goal was to become a laboratory pathologist and said it would require about 12 years of higher education.
"I just hope that all that hard work is going to pay off and I'm really going to enjoy my job," she said.
No one answered the door Monday at the Widawskys' gray, ranch-style home in Huntington, N.Y.
"He is a very nice young man," next-door neighbor George Mayer said of Jonathan Widawsky, a 24-year-old seeking his doctorate in physics. "His family, they're all just wonderful people — very, very nice people."
The university held a candlelight vigil Monday evening.
The death is the first killing at Yale since the unsolved December 1998 death of Yale student Suzanne Jovin. The popular 21-year-old senior was stabbed 17 times in New Haven's East Rock neighborhood, about 2 miles from campus.

"I just hope that all that hard work is going to pay off and I'm really going to enjoy my job," she said."

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Police and FBI agents staged a dramatic raid on the home of a Yale University animal research technician on Tuesday, seeking evidence that might tie him to the slaying of a graduate student whose body was found stuffed behind a wall in a campus research building.
No charges were filed against 24-year-old Raymond Clark III in Middletown, but police took him into custody while searching for DNA and other physical evidence. Police said Clark would be released after they obtain evidence they need from him and his Middletown apartment.
Clark was handcuffed and escorted out of the apartment building in Middletown and into a silver car. Neighbors leaned over the apartment building's iron railings and cheered as police led him away.
New Haven Police Chief James Lewis described Clark as a person of interest, not a suspect, in the death of 24-year-old Annie Le, whose body was found Sunday, the day she was to be married. He said police were hoping to compare DNA taken from Clark's hair, fingernails and saliva to more than 150 pieces of evidence collected from the crime scene. That evidence may also be compared at a state lab with DNA samples given voluntarily from other people with access to the crime scene.
"We're going to narrow this down," Lewis said. "We're going to do this as quickly as we can."
Police have collected more than 700 hours of video tape during the probe and sifted through computer records documenting who entered what parts of the research building where Le was found dead.
Investigators began staking out Clark's home on Monday, a day after they discovered Le's body hidden in the basement of a research building at Yale's medical school. She vanished Sept. 8.
Clark shares the apartment with his girlfriend, Jennifer Hromadka, whom he is engaged to marry in December 2011, according to the couple's wedding Web site.
Middletown is about 20 miles north of New Haven.
Neither the couple nor Clark's parents returned repeated telephone calls Tuesday.
Clark moved to Middletown from New Haven six months ago, where he shared an apartment with his girlfriend and three cats, according to former neighbor Taylor Goodwin, 16.
"I never really talked to him much," Goodwin said. "He was just some guy."
Police have said Clark is a lab technician at Yale. It's unclear how long he worked there and Clark's supervisors would not comment Tuesday.
Le worked for a Yale laboratory that conducted experiments on mice, and investigators found her body stuffed in the basement wall of a facility that housed research animals. Clark works in the lab as a technician.
Authorities had been tightlipped since Le was reported missing, just a few days before her wedding day. Police say they have ruled out her fiancee, a Columbia University graduate student, as a suspect but have provided little additional information.
Officials had promised Tuesday to release an autopsy report that would shed light on exactly how Le died. But then prosecutors blocked release of the results out of concern that it could hinder the investigation.
Investigators usually have reasons for keeping information secret during a criminal probe, said David Zlotnick, a former federal prosecutor who now teaches law at Roger Williams University in Bristol, R.I.
Secrecy helps police confront possible suspects with little-known evidence about a crime and makes it harder them to fabricate a cover story.
"Having that information secret or private helps the investigators know, first of all, what buttons to push on the person, and it makes sure they haven't tainted the investigation," Zlotnick said.
Le's body was found Sunday, the day she would have been married on New York's Long Island. Her remains had been crammed into a wall recess where utilities and cables run between floors.
The Le family issued a statement Tuesday through a family friend, the Rev. Dennis Smith, that thanked friends and the Yale community for their support during their grieving. The family also asked for privacy.
"The entire Yale community as well as our extended families and friends have been very supportive, helpful and caring," said Smith, speaking for the family. "Our loss would have been immeasurably more difficult to cope with without their support."
The secrecy surrounding the case has bred confusion in some quarters, and officials have repeatedly denied media reports.
"You guys made up the fact that we had somebody in custody, the media in general," New Haven police spokesman Joe Avery told reporters outside the police department Tuesday.
The lack of information also has led to some measure of fear at Yale, which last dealt with a homicide in 1998 — the sensational and still-unsolved stabbing death of 21-year-old Suzanne Jovin about 2 miles from campus.
Yale President Richard Levin was more forthcoming to Yale medical students, telling them Monday that police have narrowed the number of potential suspects to a small pool because building security systems recorded who entered the building and what times they entered.
Several news organizations have reported that police were interviewing a possible suspect who failed a polygraph test and had defensive wounds on his body. At least one reported Tuesday that it was the lab technician in Middletown.
Along the way, various media have reported that Le was stabbed, that police found her bloody clothes and that a professor was a prime suspect — virtually all claims unconfirmed by police or met by flat denials.
New Haven police said they would restrict information even more in coming days after an NBC producer was injured Tuesday as reporters outside the police department pushed to surround a spokesman during a briefing.
The building where Le's body is accessible to Yale personnel with identification cards. Some 75 video surveillance cameras monitor all doorways.
Her body was found in the basement, which houses rodents, mostly mice, used for scientific testing by multiple Yale researchers, Alpern said.
"That this horrible tragedy happened at all is incomprehensible," said Le's roommate, Natalie Powers. "That it happened to her, I think is infinitely more so. It seems completely senseless."

CROMWELL, Conn. – A Yale graduate student found stuffed in the wall of a research center had been suffocated, the medical examiner reported Wednesday as police awaited DNA tests on evidence taken from a lab technician who worked in the building.
Police call Raymond Clark III a "person of interest" in the slaying of Annie Le. Authorities hoped to compare DNA taken from Clark's hair, fingernails and saliva with more than 250 pieces of evidence collected at the crime scene on the Ivy League campus in New Haven, Conn., and from Clark's Middletown, Conn., apartment.
"It's all up to the lab now," Police Chief James Lewis said at a news conference. "The basis of the investigation now is really on the physical evidence."
Police late Wednesday were watching a hotel room in Cromwell where a "person of interest" in the killing had been staying, Cromwell Police Capt. Roy Nelson said. Broadcast reports said Clark was staying at the hotel.
Police served two search warrants — for DNA from Clark and for items in his apartment — late Tuesday. They served two more Wednesday morning, for more items from the apartment and for Clark's Ford Mustang, Lewis said.
Investigators said they expect to determine within days whether Clark should be charged in the killing. He was escorted in handcuffs from his apartment and released early Wednesday into the custody of his attorney, police said.
Lewis said police expect to seek an arrest warrant for anyone whose DNA matches evidence at the crime scene.
Officer Joe Avery, a spokesman for New Haven police, told The Associated Press early Thursday that Clark was not in custody and police did not have a warrant for his arrest.
Clark is not talking to police, Lewis said.
"At some point he may be willing to answer questions, but at this point he has invoked his rights," Lewis said. "He has an attorney. We couldn't question him if we wanted to."
Clark's attorney, David Dworski, said his client is "committed to proceeding appropriately with the authorities." He would not elaborate.
A police lab is expediting tests on Clark's DNA. University of Connecticut genetics professor Linda Strausbaugh says testing can be done in days if a case gets top priority.
Clark's job as an animal-services technician at Yale put him in contact with Le, who worked for a Yale laboratory that conducted experiments on mice. She was part of a research team headed by her faculty adviser, Anton Bennett, that focused on enzyme research that could have implications in cancer, diabetes and muscular dystrophy. Members of the team have declined to comment on the case or their work.
Clark, his fiancee, his sister and his brother-in-law all work for Yale as animal lab technicians.
Le's body was found stuffed behind the wall of the basement where lab animals are kept. The Connecticut state medical examiner said Wednesday that Le died of "traumatic asphyxiation."
Authorities found her body Sunday, the day she was to be married. The family of her fiance, Jonathan Widawsky, released a statement early Thursday asking for privacy and thanking authorities for their efforts.
"We ask that you pray for the soul of Annie Le, and for healing, for her family, for Jonathan and for our family," the statement said.
Authorities released no details on how Le died, but traumatic asphyxiation could be consistent with a choke hold or some other form of pressure-induced asphyxiation caused by a hand or an object, such as a pipe.
Clark and Le were both 24 years old, but Clark has a muscular build that contrasts sharply to Le's 4-foot-11, 90-pound frame. Clark also reportedly had a troubling brush with the law in high school after being accused of harassing a girlfriend.
Until recently, Clark's family lived in nearby Branford, a small middle-class suburb of New Haven. In September 2003, when he was a senior at Branford High School, Clark reportedly upset a girlfriend so much that police warned him to stay away from her.
The New Haven Independent reported that when the girl tried to break up with Clark, he attempted to confront her and wrote on her locker.
The girlfriend and her mother told a detective that she had been in a sexual relationship with Clark and that he once forced her to have sex. The relationship continued after that incident, according to the Independent, a news Web site.
The young woman did not pursue the case, and no charges were filed. The Independent reported that Clark was warned in 2003 that police could pursue criminal charges against him if he contacted the girl.
Branford Police Lt. Geoffrey Morgan said Wednesday that his department would not release the unsubstantiated 2003 report. Morgan would neither confirm nor deny the news report, citing cooperation with police investigating the killing.
Clark played baseball at Branford High School, where longtime athletic director Artie Roy remembered him as a quiet student who threw a mean knuckleball.
"He was a seriously good pitcher and a good infielder," Roy said. "He wasn't a typical off-the-wall knucklehead kind of kid who bounced all over the place," he said. Clark also participated in clubs that raised money for charity and the Asian Awareness group, according to the school's 2004 yearbook, the Milestone.
On her MySpace page, Clark's fiancee, Jennifer Hromadka, calls Clark was a "wonderful boyfriend." She added that she's not perfect, but cautioned people not to judge her.
"Who are you to judge the life I live? I know I'm not perfect and I don't live to be, but before you start pointing fingers make sure your hands are clean!!" the 23-year-old wrote.
The date of the MySpace posting is unclear. The page has since been taken down.
Police are not commenting on a possible motive.
As a technician at Yale, Clark helped clean the cages of research animals used by labs around the Ivy League campus and had other janitorial duties, police said. The technicians help tend to rodents, mostly mice, used in experiments and can help with paperwork.
Since researchers generally try not to move animals from their housing for testing, students and faculty conducting experiments often visit the building where Le was found dead, school officials said.
The Le case has some parallels to the 1998 murder of 21-year-old Suzanne Jovin about 2 miles from the Yale campus. The slaying is still unsolved.
In that case, a professor was named as a suspect early in the investigation and was later fired. He was never charged, and authorities never presented evidence against him.
Without mentioning Jovin's name, Lewis referred to the case Wednesday while defending his department's handling of Le's death.
"We don't want to be in the future accused of tunnel vision and saying that we focused on one person and only one person," Lewis said.
Noting that "tragedy has again struck Yale," Jovin's parents released a letter to Gov. Jodi Rell pleading for more funds for the state's forensic science lab. Thomas and Donna J. Jovin said they share the agony of Le's loved ones.
"We hope that the person guilty of this terrible crime can be apprehended quickly," they wrote, "which was unfortunately not to be true in the case of our daughter."

"The new French culture minister, Frédéric Mitterrand, is fighting to save his brief ministerial career after opposition politicians expressed disgust at his autobiography, in which he justified sex tourism and admitted "paying for boys".
Mr Mitterrand, 62, the nephew of the late president, [former Nazi collaborator-]François Mitterrand, was thrown on to the defensive after rival MPs homed in on memoirs in which he described his delight in visiting Asian brothels.
The revelations, in his 2005 best-seller La Mauvaise Vie (The Bad Life), were unearthed by far-right politicians angered by his outspoken defence of the film director Roman Polanski, who was arrested in Switzerland for extradition to Los Angeles to face charges of having sex with a 13-year-old girl in 1977.
Socialists from the party created by Mr Mitterrand's uncle also voiced outrage and suggested that his three-month tenure as Culture minister should be brought to an abrupt end.
The furore is deeply embarrassing for Nicolas Sarkozy, who claimed to have struck a blow for "political openness" when he brought Mr Mitterrand, who is openly gay, into his centre-right government in June. The choice was reportedly influenced by the President's wife, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, who has been trying to broaden the her husband's cultural horizons.
Mr Mitterrand admitted in his autobography that his attraction to young and implicitly under-age male prostitutes had continued even though he was aware of "the sordid details of this traffic". "I got into the habit of paying for boys," he wrote. "All these rituals of the market for youths, the slave market excited me enormously... the abundance of very attractive and immediately available young boys put me in a state of desire."
The book, which won critical acclaim and sold 190,000 copies in France, was presented by Mr Mitterrand – then a popular television presenter – as an "autobiography which is half real and half dreamed". It remains to be seen whether the suggestion that his descriptions of sex tourism were not strictly autobiographical will allow him to save his career. The memoir includes lurid scenes in male brothels in Thailand and Indonesia where boys are presented to Western tourists. An English translation is due out next year.
On Monday night, passages from the book were read out on live television by Marine Le Pen, the daughter of the National Front leader Jean-Marie Le Pen. Yesterday, she said Mr Mitterrand should leave office to restore France's moral integrity. "Resign, Mr Mitterrand, and perhaps afterwards we'll be able to give lessons to other people," she added.
After a long silence, leaders of the main opposition party, the Socialists, decided yesterday to follow the lead of a party that they usually abhor, or ignore. "As a minister of Culture, he has drawn attention to himself by defending a film-maker accused of raping a child and has written a book where he said he took advantage of sexual tourism. To say the least, I find it shocking," said the Socialist party spokesman, Benoît Hamon.
Mr Mitterrand, however, tried to dismiss the attacks as politically motivated. "I am flabbergasted," he said after a cabinet meeting."
"If the National Front drag me through the mud then it is an honour for me. If a leftist politician drags me through the mud then it is a humiliation for him."
Mr Mitterrand was one of the most vocal defenders of Polanski, who has French citizenship and has lived there for 30 years, following the film-maker's arrest in Switzerland 10 days ago. He has since qualified his support, saying he was "stunned" at the time, but accused the US of callous behaviour.
"Just as there is an America which is generous and which we like, so there is an America which is frightening, and that is the America which has just revealed its face," he said.

Regarding the Yale student murder, something that struck me was the mention that it was an "animal lab" that she was murdered in.
Understand where I'm going with this. I had talked with a woman some time ago when she was going to college, she worked in an animal lab and the strange things they were doing there was disturbing, like trying to put human hands on monkeys.
If there were some really strange and bizarre animal experiments and cloning or trying to mix species....she may have known too much about some of these things and perhaps was going to blow the whistle on this project.
Now this is just a theory, certainly no other idea...but it was something that struck me for the reasoning why someone would kill someone at an animal lab???
"Collegues keep forwarding me links to news website discussing the Annie Le murder just becuase I knew her in College in New York. I will have to say, each of those emails concludes with, "pray for her, so was so kind, beautiful, and smart." What a wonderful person and a lovely soul etc etc. I'll tell you the truth about Annie. She was nowhere NEAR as perfect as the Media sources describe her. Annie had this gift, she could read people's emotions and judge them really well. As a result, she cozy-ed up to all the professors, Assistants, people in power or people who might help her succeed. She was the genius brown-noser. Talking with Annie you go the feeling she was always trying to discreetly size you up, if she felt you had something to offer her (even if it was to improve her social standing, to show everybody, especially the professors that would write her medical school recommendation letters, that she was well-liked) she would treat you nice. If you didn't have anything to offer her, she would treat you w/o respect or get passive agressive. Motivated and driven people are usually like this, I should have known earlier. She was NEVER afraid to do any of this becuase she was streetsmart, she had a gang of buddies and was somewhat intouchable."
Im not saying I agree with what happened to her but its better to think twice in many cases...
