Dear Members of the Yale Community,
I am writing once again to update you on the investigation into Saturday night’s tragic murder of Yale graduate student Kevin Jiang.
At a press conference today (Wednesday), New Haven Police Chief Otoniel Reyes revealed that Qinxuan Pan, 29, of Malden, Massachusetts, while not officially a “suspect”, is a “person of interest” in the investigation. Pan is considered armed and dangerous: Chief Reyes urged extreme caution for anyone who might come into contact with him.
Federal, state and local authorities are looking for Pan to question him about Jiang’s murder. Chief Reyes made clear that he considers it unlikely that Pan is still in Connecticut, and that he does not believe there is a prevailing threat to the community related to the slaying.
Anyone who has information about Pan’s whereabouts is asked to call Homicide Detectives at 203-946-6304 or the New Haven Police Department Anonymous Tip Line at 1-866-888-8477, or send an email to ECIC@newhavenct.gov.
Your safety and the safety of the entire community are paramount and the Yale Police Department will continue to work closely with the New Haven Police Department to bring justice to Kevin’s family.
I will continue to give you updates on this investigation as they become available.
Ronnell A. Higgins
Director of Public Safety and Chief of Police
