The body of a Yale student found dead behind a wall on what should have been her wedding day has been returned to Northern California for her funeral.

Funeral director Dennis Hamilton of Green Valley Mortuary in Rescue said Sunday that the body of Annie Le was in the funeral home's care.

Rescue is about 10 miles from the 24-year-old graduate student's hometown of Placerville.

Hamilton said Le's family has requested that all details about the funeral be kept private. A memorial service for Le is planned at her fiance's New York temple later this month.

Le vanished from a Yale research building Sept. 8; her body was found hidden in a wall recess five days later.

Raymond Clark III is charged with her murder. He has not entered a plea.
