NEW HAVEN, Conn. - A law enforcement official says authorities are investigating whether the Yale killing suspect's work attitude led to the confrontation. The official said Thursday that investigators don't know why Raymond Clark III might have killed 24-year-old Annie Le, because he won't talk to police. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing and many details remain sealed.

People interviewed by police have painted Clark as a controlling man who viewed the laboratory as his territory.

Authorities are investigating whether that led to the killing, but the official says that's just a theory.

Clark has been transferred to a state prison in New Haven.
