    "New Haven police Chief James Lewis told local television stations Friday the only person who knows the reason for the murder of Annie Le is the man charged with the crime, Raymond Clark III."

    I thought the only person that would know the reason for her murder would be the actual killer. I guess once you are charged though it doesnt matter. This cop should not have spoke like this until the man is actually convicted. Or at least said that only the killer would know, but he straight out named that guy as the killer before he even went to trial. But as long as the government is throwing out the constitution, might as well let the local police throw it out too. I do not know if this guy is guilty or innocent, but I still believe in a trial before a conviction.
