Pan was last known to have resided in Malden, Massachusetts. He attended MIT, where he graduated with an undergraduate degree in computer science, the Yale Daily News reported.
Pan, who is originally from Shanghai, China, was last spotted at a Best Western hotel in North Haven.
An arrest warrant has been issued for Pan after he reportedly stole a vehicle in North Haven. He has not officially been named as a suspect in the homicide.
Emergency crews were dispatched to Lawrence Street between Nicoll and Nash streets around 8:30 p.m. on Feb. 6.

Authorities said Jiang was operating a vehicle at the time of the shooting. 
New Haven Police Department Chief Otoniel Reyes said during a press conference on Wednesday that police are looking into whether or not Jiang was targeted.
“We have developed information that the incident may not have been a random act, that he was in effect targeted,” Reyes said. “This was not, sort of, a drive-by. It seems like it was much more up-close.”
