The Maryland college student who police say admitted killing and then eating parts of his housemate has a Los Alamos National Laboratory connection.
Alexander Kinyua, 21, who attends Morgan State, was one of 175 people showcased in an August 2011 symposium run by LANL.
The lab issued the following statement Friday.
“We can confirm that Alexander Kinyua was a student here last summer. He held no security clearance and worked in our Design Engineering organization in leased space downtown, outside of the main lab campus. He had no access to classified or otherwise sensitive material. He left in good standing at the end of the summer,” the statement read.
