New Prosecutor for Yale Homicide

March 2, 2000

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ A new prosecutor has been assigned to the investigation into the unsolved stabbing death of 21-year-old Yale University senior.

Assistant State’s Attorney James G. Clark has assumed responsibility of the investigation, officials said Wednesday. He replaces David P. Gold, supervisory assistant state’s attorney who is becoming a Superior Court judge.

Suzanne Jovin, 21, was found stabbed 17 times in the neck and back on Dec. 4, 1998. Neighbors reported hearing shouting minutes before the body was discovered, but police say there were no witnesses.

Police have said they have a ``pool of suspects,″ but have publicly named only 39-year-old James Van de Velde, Jovin’s senior thesis adviser.
