Lauren Spierer's boyfriend says he passed polygraph

The boyfriend of missing college student Lauren Spierer spoke with detectives this week and has taken a lie-detector test, he confirmed in a Facebook exchange with a Journal News reporter.

And he suggested he passed the polygraph.

"If I failed a polygraph everyone in the world would know," read the message written from Jesse Wolff's Facebook account.

These were his first public comments since police identified him early in the investigation as one of the "persons of interest."

He also said "my life (expletive) sucks," in response to questions about the disappearance, search and investigation that has now been going on for 50 days.

Wolff, a resident of Port Washington, Long Island, who graduated this year from Indiana University, told friends that he had planned to get together with Spierer early June 3, but they couldn't reach each other that morning because, as he learned later, she left her cellphone at a bar.

He was the one bar employees called later in the morning to report they had her phone, after seeing several text exchanges between the couple.

Wolff's main Facebook photo, undated, shows him and Spierer — a 20-year-old from Edgemont — with arms around each other, both smiling as she clutched a red plastic cup. The two met as teenagers at a Jewish summer camp in Pennsylvania and started dating seriously after she enrolled at IU in 2009.

A couple weeks ago, police in Bloomington, Ind., searched the home that Wolff shared with former fraternity brothers.

Since Spierer's disappearance, a reporter for the Journal News has sent repeated emails to Wolff and visited his home in Port Washington on Thursday, seeking an interview. His parents declined, with his father saying his son wasn't home.

Wolff responded today via Facebook, urging the reporter to "Leave me alone please." He then stated, "I spoke with the detectives Tuesday and have taken a polygraph. All my cards are out on the table ..."

Asked whether police administered the polygraph, and for the results, Wolff replied, "what the (expletive) do you think the results were? if i failed a polygraph everyone in the world would know ...."

Asked again whether police administered it, he replied, "I don't think you are understanding what i just said to you ... dont (sic) ever talk to me again."

He also declined to share details of his interactions with Spierer in the hours before she went missing.

"(Expletive) you and (expletive) the media," he wrote. "I tell the police everything because they can actually help."

Neither police nor his lawyer responded to calls seeking comment.

Landfill has capability to search for missing IU student's possible remains
Many are urging the Bloomington Police Department to search a Pimento landfill for the possible remains of missing IU student Lauren Spierer


Pimento, Ind. — Many are urging the Bloomington Police Department to search a Pimento landfill for the possible remains of missing IU student Lauren Spierer

The Sycamore Ridge Landfill is where all of Bloomington's trash is dumped. Management said if Bloomington Police wanted to search this landfill for Lauren Spierer's possible remains they could find the specific trash they want using something many of us have in our cars: GPS technology. Per state guidelines, each load of trash dumped at Sycamore Ridge is plotted using a GPS locator system.

"Each day the trash that's deposited in the landfill, we have the coordinates of where that trash goes for each day." said Kenny DePasse with Republic Services of Indiana, the company that runs the landfill.

DePasse said trash from Bloomington isn't placed separately, but instead mixed with trash from other areas. GPS coordinates could help police find trash dumped on specific days close to Lauren's disappearance.

"We would have the ability, if someone gave us specific information, to try to come as close as we possibly could to locating that day's deposit," said DePasse.

Bloomington Police said investigators have not searched the landfill, and detectives won't say if that's even a possibility, though.

Public pressure to search the landfill is building. Hundreds have posted comments on social media sites, including the the Bloomington Police Department's Facebook Page, asking why investigators haven't already searched it.

Some are angry, like Lillie Tennen who writes, "If you have not searched the landfill, then you are clearly not suited to work on the case."

Other's like Heidi Delis simply beg for more searching, posting, "The public is begging you to put the Lauren case back on the front burner and search the landfills and anywhere else that might have been missed. WE the public are ready and willing to help just say the word."

Lauren is certainly dead. I think it's just a matter of finding her body. What a sham. Another young woman...gone.

What would she have accomplished. Her family has to miss her so very much.

The above article says that the video from the night that Lauren went missing shows that she was way too drunk to have helped anyone walk home (previously it was said that she helped Corey Rossman walk home). This person (not identified) said she was real drunk, stumbled out of the elevator and slammed into the wall and some guy carried her out of the apartment building. Rossman had said he had been punched while at her apartment building and she had walked him home and he has no memory of this. Maybe now the true story will come out. I feel so bad for her parents, at least one person is allowing them to go thru' this hell. I'm too sure Lauren is dead, her medication that she had to be on daily for a heart problem was left at her place.

Jeanne, it's called 'Long QT Syndrome' and it sounds rare and quite serious. I read on it a bit (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long_QT_syndrome) and it mentioned trying to treat the arrhythmias beta blockers. After reading what's involved with the above, it sure doesn't sound good for her at all. What a shame.

FBI to search landfill possibly in connection with Lauren Spierer case
By Crimesider Staff

(CBS/WSBT) VIGO COUNTY, Ind. - The FBI is reportedly planning on searching a landfill in western Indiana, possibly in connection with the disappearance of Indiana University student Lauren Spierer. The 20-year-old woman disappeared in downtown Bloomington 2 months ago.

According to the Indianapolis Star, a spokeswoman for Republic Services, the company that runs the Sycamore Ridge landfill in Terre Haute, says there have been discussions about scouring the site for the past few weeks.The FBI requested a search warrant for the facility on June 16, according to reports.

Terre Haute is about 55 miles away from Bloomington, reports CBS affiliate WSBT.

Spierer, of Greenburgh, N.Y., was last seen early June 3 walking alone to her Bloomington apartment after a night out with friends.

Although authorities have not named any suspects in the case, police suspect foul play in this missing person case. Bloomington Police aren't commenting on the possible search.

Spierer Parents Speak at Landfill

As the FBI and other agencies began their search of a Vigo County landfill as part of the investigation into the disappearance of missing IU student Lauren Spierer, Spierer's parents were also at the Sycamore Ridge Landfill Tuesday.
Charlene Spierer tells our partners at Fox59 that they're hoping any kind of information comes their way because of this search.
"We don't know what we're going to find or if we're going to find anything at the landfill. It could be a clue. I could be evidence. We just don't know but of course, I would give anything to have one minute with Luaren so my hope is that she's still alive," Spierer says.
Lauren's mother says she questions the story of Jay Rosenbaum, who says he saw Lauren walking away from his apartment building at 4:30 the morning Lauren disappeared. Lauren's father Robert also says he's upset with all of the people who were the last to see his daughter.
"The folks who were with her the night that she disappeared left town shortly after her disappearance and we've not had any meaningful contact with them since they left," he says.
The Spierers, who have been in Bloomington for the past two months, say they will be returning to New York on Wednesday but they will return to Bloomington.

The Spierers and the Kesse's certainly set the bar for how parents with missing children behave.

They have been in Bloomington for two months trying to find their daughter.

The heat has been terrible and not knowing is killing them.

God Bless those who search for their children and try to find answers to who harmed them.

Landfill search for Spierer over


OMINGTON, Ind. (WISH) - Bloomington Police Department said Friday it is ending its search of a Terre Haute landfill no closer to finding missing IU student Lauren Spierer .

“The fact that no evidence related to this case was discovered is unfortunate, but we are confident that the proper area at the landfill was identified and thoroughly checked by the officers working there,” said Bloomington Police Chief Michael Diekhoff.

The search was conducted at Sycamore Ridge Landfill over nine days, police said, and more than 4,100 tons of waste was examined. That waste came from an area of the landfill that held trash from the Bloomington area, and had been sequestered within the firste few days of the investigation, Bloomington police said Friday.

No evidence relating to the case was found, police said. Police officers from Bloomington and Indiana University conducted the search, along with the FBI and with the help of Republic Services, which operates the landfill.

The search started Aug. 16 and ended at noon Friday, police said. All waste from the area near Spierer's last known location was combed through first, police said. As the operation continued, less waste from Bloomington and from the date range of Spierer's disappearance was being removed, and that led police to end the operation, Bloomington Police Department Capt. Joe Qualters said Friday.

Spierer went missing in the early morning hours of June 3 . Hundreds of volunteers and various agencies helped with the search in the weeks after she disappeared, and her parents, Robert and Charlene , have spent most of their time in Bloomington since then, too.

The investigation continues, and anyone with information can call 812-339-4477, email Bloomington Police or mail to Find Lauren, P.O. Box 1226, Bloomington, IN 47402.

The Spierers are asking for volunteers to meet at the Copper Cup near Smallwood Plaza, 8th Street and College Avenue, where Lauren Spierer lived, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday to help hang new "Missing" posters in the Bloomington area.

Body found in Jennings County woods
NORTH VERNON, Ind. (WISH) - A body has been found in a wooded area in Jennings County, county officials said Tuesday.

Emergency officials had to use ATVs and four-wheel drive vehicles to investigate, Jennings County Sheriff Steve Hoppock said in a news release. It appeared the body had been there for some time, he said.

Indiana State Police crime technicians were called to the scene, as was the Jennings County coroner’s office.

No identifying characteristics were released Tuesday. Hoppock said the investigation is ongoing, and more details would be released as they became available.

The body has been taken to a hospital in Louisville, and an autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.

24-Hour News 8 contacted Capt. Joe Qualters of the Bloomington Police Department, which continues to investigate the disappearance of IU student Lauren Spierer, missing since June 3 . Qualters said he had not been contacted in connection with the body found Tuesday.

Bar that served underage Lauren Spierer faces citations

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Indiana excise police Thursday cited a Bloomington bar for serving alcohol to 20-year-old Indiana University student Lauren Spierer hours before she vanished on June 3.

Kilroy's Sports Bar was cited on two alcohol-related charges Thursday afternoon, one for allowing a minor to loiter and the other for furnishing alcoholic beverages to a minor, according to Cpl. Travis Thickstun.

The citation was based on identification that Spierer used that night, which excise police said didn't match her physical description.

Spierer, a graduate of Edgemont High School, disappeared after a night of partying.

Spierer arrived at Kilroy's with a friend, Corey Rossman, and left her cell phone at the bar before leaving with him shortly before 2:30 a.m.

She was last reported leaving the apartment building of another friend, Jay Rosenbaum. He was the last person to report having seen her, telling authorities that she left his place about 4:15 a.m. and that he saw her turning a corner on her way home.

No suspects have been identified in Spierer's disappearance, but police believe it was the result of foul play.

Kilroy's bar has been the scene of citations for accepting fake IDs by Indiana excise police. The company that runs Kilroy's has been cited for accepting fake IDs by Indiana excise police during the last 18 months and its three bars were the sites of 64 percent of the 188 tickets issued to people younger than 21 for possessing a false ID, The Bloomington Herald-Times has reported.

The state Alcohol & Tobacco Commission will review the citations connected to Spierer. Meanwhile, Kilroy's will remain open. Its owners and employees have cooperated in the investigation, providing surveillance tapes and other information, Thickstun said.

Anyone with information on Spierer's disappearance can contact the Bloomington Police Department at 812-339-4477 or send an e-mail to helpfindlauren@gmail.com. Anonymous tips can be left at 1-800-274-6388.

GOOD!!

When I was bartending in Florida, LE would bring in a teen to see if the bartender would serve them. I ALWAYS ask for ID if I don't know the person as it was a local bar where "everybody knows your name." About 5 min before the teen walked in, I got calls from 3 other bars letting me know what was going on.

Two of my friends were cited for serving him a beer.

So, in he walks..with an elder guy..asked for a draft. I asked Both for ID. The elder guy (undercover cop) asked me why I was asking him for ID. I said, "Cause looks are deceiving." He laughed at that..thought I was complimenting him. Needless to say, the kid did not get served.

ALL bartenders should card if they don't know you..even if you look 100 because legally, you Must have ID in a bar.

Lauren Spierer disappearance: Schoolmate Rosenbaum meets with parents, denies any involvement


Indiana University student Jay Rosenbaum said today that he had nothing to do with Lauren Spierer's disappearance and that he has fully cooperated with police.

Rosenbaum, the last person to report seeing the Indiana University sophomore, also met with Spierer's parents for two hours — and held another session with their private investigator — answering all of their questions about the case, his lawyer, Jen Lukemeyer, said.

"Yes, I have cooperated since day one, and I will continue to cooperate," Rosenbaum told The Journal News by telephone call, offering his first public statements on the case. "And I had nothing to do with the disappearance of Lauren. Obviously, there's nothing more that I want than for Lauren to be found and safe, and for this all to be over."

He declined to field questions, and was joined by Lukemeyer during the call.

Lukemeyer said she had been evading media requests, but felt compelled to defend her client now because he continues to face heavy scrutiny. He is among the "persons of interest" in the ongoing police investigation of Spierer's June 3 disappearance, and her parents have expressed skepticism about his statements and level of cooperation.

She said Rosenbaum has given statements to police and let them into his apartment. He offered to give a DNA sample to police at their request, but said they never collected it. Her client also took a polygraph test, administered through the lawyer's office by a "well-respected" expert in the field, and shared the results with police.

"Our polygrapher met with the state police personnel, and they were very satisfied with the tests," Lukemeyer said.

Rosenbaum, a student who lives in the apartment Spierer visited before she went missing after a night out with friends, met with Robert and Charlene Spierer in Lukemeyer's office Sept. 19, she said. The Spierers' lawyer was also present.

"It was a full two-hour discussion," Lukemeyer said. "He answered everything they put in front of him. It was a very congenial meeting."

I would guess with he and his attorney doing that he is having a very hard time on campus.

I will say that I have always heard that if an attorney thinks you are guilty they advise you to say nothing.

Him meeting with the parents and talking with them makes me feel better about him.

Gosh where can she be.

Lauren Spierer vanished exactly six months ago today from Bloomington, Indiana. On the six-month anniversary of the 20-year-old student's disappearance, her parents addressed the public once more.

It's sad to think that it's now the sixth month in the disappearance of 20-year-old student, Lauren Spierer. It's been one of the most mysterious high profile cases this year. Like the disappearance of Holly Bobo, six hours away, Lauren vanished under suspicious circumstances but left behind not enough evidence for anyone to be charged for further interrogation. In fact, the case went cold just weeks after she vanished into the early morning hours of June 3rd.

The mother of the missing fashion student addressed the public once more in regards to finding her.

"I beg you again for the numerous times to give us the information that we need to lead us to Lauren. What can we do to convince you to give us our daughter back?"
Charlene Spierer said.

Charlene Spierer says that the family still isn't letting go of hope that they'll find Lauren.

Lauren Spierer Update: Parents Doubt Witness Story

When Lauren Spierer vanished in June, there were many different people questioned, and some of the last people to see her gave similar accounts of the night she disappeared. Now, the missing woman's family has doubts over one man's account.

The parents of missing 20-year-old IU student Lauren Spierer aren't convinced that Corey Rossman is being 100% truthful. In fact, they're rather upset that the young man has refused to have any contact with them. That doesn't make him look good, and it certainly frustrates the family who are desperate to bring home their daughter.

Corey Rossman was one of the last people to see Lauren before she vanished mysteriously in the early morning hours of June 3rd. He also claims to have no memory of that night, having allegedly been punched in the face during an altercation. He claims that Lauren walked home alone that night and that was the last time he'd seen her.

This account clashes with evidence obtained from surveillance footage and other witness reports wich acknowledge that Lauren was so intoxicated that she couldn't walk on her own. Video footage shows her being carried by a male companion during a night of partying.

What happened to Lauren Spierer?

"We don't know (if she's still alive). We hope she is." That's what the missing woman's parents are saying. However, it's realistic to say that Lauren is no longer alive. She suffers from a rare congenital heart condition that requires her to take medication regularly. She's also been rumored to have used cocaine. When you pair cocaine with a heart condition, you've got a recipe for disaster. Investigators have researched rumors that the young woman may have overdosed the night she vanished, but the parents don't believe this is what happened. In other words, it's highly convenient for Corey Rossman to be suffering amnesia over a span of time that was very specific.

Normal ‘Lauren’s Law’ activist petitions for mandatory polygraph tests

Post by raine1953 on Wed Jan 18, 2012 1:44 am

Lauren Spierer disappeared more than seven months ago. As search efforts for Spierer dwindle, posters bearing her picture are no longer present on nearly every telephone pole as they once were.

But a 17-year-old from Worthington, Ind., said he believes a law requiring persons of interest in missing persons cases to undergo polygraph tests would help investigators locate Spierer’s whereabouts.

Using change.org, a social change advocacy website, Jalen Faith created a petition several weeks ago calling for “Lauren’s Law,” advocating the use of polygraph tests on key persons of interest in investigations surrounding missing individuals. But the proposal raises constitutional concerns.

“There is an issue when the persons of interest have more protection than the victims themselves,” Faith said.

Few new details have emerged in Spierer’s case because “four of the persons of interest who were last with Lauren that night refuse to come forward with information,” according to the petition, which currently boasts more than 3,500 signatures.

Faith’s petition argues that requiring persons of interest to take the polygraph tests would speed up police investigations.

“We believe that by requiring all persons of interest (POIs) take a police-administered polygraph test will help important details emerge sooner in the investigation, therefore reducing the number of investigators and cutting down on time exerted in solving cases,” the petition reads.

Spierer, then a 20-year-old IU student, disappeared in Bloomington June 3, 2011.

Police have been investigating the case since her disappearance, but the Spierer family hired its own team of investigators to aid in the case.

On the date of Spierer’s disappearance, Faith, who is a junior at Indiana Connections Academy, was visiting Bloomington with a friend. Noticing the quick response to Spierer’s disappearance, Faith said he became interested in the case immediately.

Faith said he did not know Spierer, her family or friends prior to her disappearance, but June 12, he assisted during a search party looking for Spierer.

Since then, Faith said he has been in contact with Charlene Spierer, who Faith said helped him write the petition.

“If we made it so persons of interest had to take a polygraph, we could solve the case right at the beginning,” Faith said. “We would bring a family the closure they need, save time and money.”

The petition is addressed to Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller, Gov. Mitch Daniels and the FBI Indianapolis Field Office, among dozens of others. The petition is also addressed to lawmakers in Michigan, Massachusetts and New York.

“The POIs are all from these locations,” Faith said.

While Faith sees polygraph tests as an acceptable tool when investigating cases surrounding missing people, Craig Bradley, Maurer School of Law’s Robert A. Lucas chair of law, disagreed.

If the petition transformed into legislation, Bradley said the law would be “flatly unconstitutional,” violating the Fifth Amendment’s protection against self-incrimination.

Bradley added that such a law would be a “bad idea because polygraph results are unreliable and inadmissible in court.”

But Faith said he is not asking for an exception to the Constitution. Instead, he said the Constitution was written to evolve as society evolves.

“We want POIs to take a polygraph and confirm the information they had already given to police. They’re not saying nothing they hadn’t already said,” Faith said. “If they’re innocent, then they shouldn’t have anything to worry about.”

Post by raine1953 on Mon Mar 05, 2012 2:49 pm

“I would be lying if I said I didn’t wish you were experiencing the same excruciating pain we are,” Charlene Spierer of Edgemont stated in her March 2 letter that is circulating online. “I wish for today, I held your fate in my hands.”

She also shared a picture of herself cradling Lauren when she was born 21 years ago at NYU Hospital in New York City.

Meanwhile, she urged anyone with tips in the June 3 disappearance to call Bloomington, Ind. police at812-339-4477 or the family’s private detective, Beau Dietl Associates, at 800-777-9366.

"You know where she is" by Charlene Spierer

March 2, 2012

To whom this may concern,

Thoughts on a page. You and I share unique roles; we are both insiders, forever bound by the senseless circumstances of June 3, 2011. You were with Lauren, you know what happened and you know where she is. Maybe you spend every day trying to forget. I am Lauren’s mother. I have a front row seat in this never-ending nightmare. The smallest task requires tremendous effort. Being home, going places for the first time where Lauren has been. Hearing one of her favorite songs. Hearing a song she would love but may never hear. Waiting at a light, waiting in line. Always, always on edge. Always waiting for a phone call which will tell me Lauren has been found or even that the smallest piece of information has made it’s way into the right hands. Waiting to find out if a Twitter rumor is true…waiting to hear if the body recently found is Lauren’s. Imagine waiting to hear if a body that was just discovered is your daughter’s? I spend every day trying to find answers to the questions, which will end this mystery. Whatever the events of the night, you hold the key to what happened to Lauren at night’s end. I wonder if you give Lauren a second thought. I wonder what type person it takes to watch our grief as we face another day. I think about you all the time. I wish for one instant you were in our place, waiting, praying, hoping. I wish you knew what it felt like to have lost a loved one. Missing…The despair that comes from the realization that someone knows the whereabouts of your missing child is indescribable. I wish you could feel that heartache. I would be lying if I said I didn’t wish you were experiencing the same excruciating pain we are. I wish for today, I held your fate in my hands.

Nine months. A lot can happen in nine months. The miracle of life, the joy of a child joining a family and all that she brings.

Nine months is a long time to maintain the silence of one so determined to keep a secret. I know there is not much I can control. I know all of our efforts to date have not resulted in finding Lauren. Nine months is a long time. Memories fade and life goes on but I promise to never let you forget. I promise to be a constant reminder should your memory fail you. I can do that, at the very least. We will never stop looking for Lauren. You should know that we are just as determined to find Lauren today as we were on June 3, 2011.

Hoping today is the day….

Charlene Spierer

Normal Remains found not Lauren Spierer's

Post by raine1953 on Fri Apr 06, 2012 12:19 am

(Indianapolis, Ind.) - Human remains found in eastern Illinois about 100 miles from the Indiana University campus are not those of missing IU student Lauren Spierer.

Jasper County Coroner Jason Meyer tells the Hudson Valley Journal News the body found in Newton, Ill. last month some 100 miles from Bloomington turned out to be that of an unidentified male, not Spierer.

“Why this particular body has gained more attention from the media is surprising to me since we had made no mention of it to any media outlets prior to the inquiries that began coming in. We are interested in all unidentified bodies as part of our investigation,” Bloomington police Capt. Joe Qualters told the newspaper.

Spierer, an Edgemont, New York native, was attending Indiana University when she went missing last June following a night of partying.

Since her disappearance, authorities have had few leads and have made no arrests in the case.

Normal Lauren Spierer case: Charlene Spierer believes her daughter is no longer alive

Post by raine1953 on Mon Apr 23, 2012 3:46 pm

BLOOMINGTON, IND. — The mother of missing college student Lauren Spierer paused for a moment, tears welling up in her eyes as she gave a different answer to a question she’s been asked numerous times since last June — do you believe your daughter is alive?

“I don’t,” she said softly.

Charlene Spierer revealed her change of perspective in the first interview she and her husband, Robert, have given in months, as they returned to Bloomington as the one-year anniversary of their daughter’s disappearance nears.

“We’re trying to be realistic,” Robert Spierer said. “We know that if she had the chance to reach out to us, she would have done it.”

Still, they’re pushing forward with their effort to find their daughter, take her home and bring justice to whoever was responsible.

Some of the people she hung out with that night remain persons of interest in the ongoing criminal investigation, and the young woman’s parents continue to question their truthfulness — even after their private investigator interviewed a couple of them.

“I feel if she never met Corey Rossman, she’d be alive today,” Robert Spierer said of one of the students she was with that night. “His claim of memory loss is laughable.”

“He’s a perfect example of someone who only cares about self-preservation, without any thought for another human being,” he added.

Spierer hasn’t been seen or heard from since June 3, when she went out partying with friends.

With the anniversary approaching, the Spierers, from Edgemont, returned to Bloomington this week and sat down with The Journal News for the first of several interviews they plan over the next few days. Their aim is to sustain interest in the case despite a lack of any visible progress in the investigation.

The parents arrived in a college town that has essentially returned to normal. In the weeks after her disappearance, police held daily news conferences as hundreds of volunteers scoured the region for evidence, plastering “Find Lauren” signs on every street corner. In recent months, the only significant attention to the case came from false alarms, the latest in March when a body found in Illinois turned out not to be the missing student.

At the time of her disappearance, Spierer was 20, a sophomore majoring in fashion merchandizing at Indiana University.

Her parents have revisited everything that happened that night countless times.

The sophomore went out around midnight to visit friends up the street from her off-campus apartment. She later went to a bar, where she left her cell phone and shoes. She returned to her building with Rossman, and left after he was confronted by several people in the hallway; Rossman said he was punched so hard he lost memory of the night.

Video surveillance shows he helped her out of her building after she came stumbling out of her elevator.

She dropped her keys while heading up the street to his apartment. Then she visited Rossman’s neighbor, Jay Rosenbaum. He said he tried to get her to sleep over on his couch, but let her leave after she showed she could walk okay. He told police she left at 4:15 a.m., seeing her turn a corner toward her place.

Police probe possible connection between murder suspect, missing college student Lauren Spierer
Published May 03, 2012



Indiana police are investigating a possible connection between a man accused of murdering several women and a missing college student.
The Bloomington Police Department said in a press release Thursday that a detective has been assigned to investigate whether murder suspect William Clyde Gibson is linked to Indiana University student Lauren Spierer, who disappeared almost a year ago.
Gibson, 54, was charged last week with murder in the deaths of a 75-year-old family friend found dead April 19 in Gibson's New Albany, Ind., home, and the 2002 death of a Florida hairdresser whose body was found near the Ohio River.
Police also are investigating the death of a 35-year-old woman whose body was found Friday in Gibson's backyard.
Bloomington police said there is no known connection between Gibson and Spierer, but said they are still investigating the matter.
"We have no indication that there is any connection to Lauren's case, but we are certainly interested in anyone who comes to the attention of law enforcement for targeting women as victims," the department said in a statement obtained by FoxNews.com.
Bloomington police reached out to Illinois authorities in early April, after skeletal remains were discovered in a remote area of eastern Illinois, Fox affiliate WXIN-TV reported. An autopsy revealed the remains were those of a man.
Spierer disappeared on June 3, 2011. She was last seen on surveillance video, walking home after a night out with friends. She is described as 4 feet, 11 inches tall with blonde hair and blue eyes.

Normal Cops investigate similarities between Spierer, missing college student cases

Post by raine1953 on Mon May 28, 2012 1:42 pm

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Police in Bloomington say they have contacted authorities in Louisiana about their search for a college student whose disappearance has similarities to that of an Indiana University student who has been missing for nearly a year.

Spokesman Capt. Joe Qualters told the Herald Times (http://bit.ly/MT3JdG ) that Bloomington police, who are investigating the June 3, 2011, disappearance of Lauren Spierer, have contacted Louisiana authorities who are searching for University of Louisiana student Michaela “Mickey” Shunick, who has been missing since May 19.

Shunick, 21, was last seen shortly before 2 a.m., when she left a friend’s house in an area popular with college students in Lafayette, La., to go home. Her bicycle was found Sunday in a remote, swampy area under a highway bridge in Iberville Parish, about 25 miles from where she was last seen.

Spierer, 21, of Greenburgh, N.Y., disappeared about 4:30 a.m. after a night out with friends at a popular student hangout in downtown Bloomington.

Both women are blonde and petite. Shunick is described as white, with long, wavy blonde hair. She is 5-foot-1 and 115 pounds. Spierer is described as white, with shoulder length blonde hair. She is 4-foot-11 and 95 lbs.

Police in Louisiana also want to learn more about a white pickup that is shown in a security video that also shows a bicyclist thought to be Shunick about the time she disappeared.

Police in Indiana also investigated a white pickup caught on video that had driven by the area Spierer was last reportedly seen. Investigators initially thought the truck circled the block suspiciously, but later determined a time discrepancy between video cameras was the reason the truck appeared to go by twice.

After releasing photographs and receiving more than 500 tips, police tracked down the owner of the truck and determined he had driven by the area about 4:15 a.m. to pick up an employee. Investigators said the truck wasn’t linked to Spierer’s disappearance.

I think I said from the get go that Mickey's case reminded me of Lauren. They even resemble each other.

One year after Indiana University student Lauren Spierer disappeared, parents cling to hope
By Cristina Corbin

A full year after a 20-year-old Indiana University student disappeared from her college town, the woman’s parents are down to just “this little bit of hope” she could still be alive.
“It’s a remote possibility that she’s alive and a greater possibility that she’s not,” said Robert Spierer, whose daughter, Lauren, disappeared early Friday, June 3, 2011, near the school’s Bloomington campus.
“It’s a remote possibility that she’s alive and a greater possibility that she’s not.”
- Robert Spierer, father of missing co-ed
Spierer, of Greenburgh , N.Y., was last seen early that morning on the intersection of 11th Street and College Avenue in Bloomington, according to the woman’s acquaintance and college classmate Jay Rosenbaum.
Rosenbaum claims he watched the petite, blonde-haired student walk from his building toward her off-campus apartment complex some three blocks away around 4:30 a.m. the morning she disappeared.
Rosenbaum’s last reported sighting of Spierer followed a night of partying among a loose group of college friends and acquaintances.
Robert Spierer believes his daughter, who took medication for a heart condition, could have been drugged at Kilroy’s Sports Bar, a popular college hangout with an outdoor sandy area designed to look like a beach. Authorities reported that Spierer left her shoes and cell phone behind there.
“She could have been given something in her drink, unknowingly, that made her almost incapacitated,” Robert Spierer told FoxNews.com.
Spierer, a fashion merchandising major who had just completed her sophomore year, left her apartment complex around 12:30 a.m. June 3 with a friend, David Rohn, to walk to Rosenbaum’s apartment. Once at Rosenbaum’s residence, Spierer met a male acquaintance – Corey Rossman – who lived two doors down from Rosenbaum.
Rossman, who was reportedly on a “no trespass” list at Spierer’s building over a 2010 incident that had occurred there, left his building with Spierer and headed for Kilroy’s Sports Bar. Police said Spierer and Rossman entered the bar at 1:46 a.m. and left at 2:27 a.m.
Many questions surround what happened next.
Surveillance video captured Rossman and Spierer entering her apartment building – known as Smallwood – shortly after leaving the bar. Rossman reportedly claimed he was injured in a fight with other male students on the fifth floor of the building and remembers nothing of what happened during and after the incident. At 2:42 a.m., Spierer is seen leaving her building with Rossman and walking up an alley toward Rosenbaum and Rossman’s apartment complex.
Spierer, who police say dropped her keys and identification card on the way, spent some time at the men’s building before leaving at 4:30 a.m., according to Rosenbaum, who claims he watched from a balcony as she walked toward her apartment. Spierer was never seen or heard from again.
Do the young men who last saw Spierer alive know her fate? Or did she fall victim to a stranger abduction as she walked in the dark, alone and inebriated, a short distance toward her home?
Bo Dietl, a New York-based private investigator hired by the Spierer family, said “all options remain on the table.”
“At this point, no one has been eliminated,” Deitl told FoxNews.com. “Everyone is still a suspect as far as knowing what happened to Lauren.”
Robert Spierer and his wife, Charlene, say they believe the group of male students – including Rossman’s roommate, Mike Beth – know more than what they’ve told investigators.
“Obviously we don’t feel they’ve done everything in their power to be of assistance to us,” Robert Spierer said.
Spierer’s disappearance touched off a massive search by air, land and water for any trace of the young woman. The Bloomington Police Department said Thursday it receives on average about two to three “credible” leads weekly in the case – totaling more than 2,600 tips to date.
Last August, the FBI scoured the Sycamore Ridge Landfill in Pimento for any clues in the case. Authorities are also probing a possible connection between Spierer and accused serial killer William Clyde Gibson, a 54-year-old convicted sex offender linked to the deaths of at least three women more than 100 miles away. The remains of one of the victims – 35-year-old mother Stephanie Kirk – were found buried in the backyard of Gibson’s home in New Albany, Ind. Police have so far determined no connection between Spierer and Gibson.
Lauren, whom family described as “vivacious” and “loving,” had a an ability to “make everyone feel very comfortable,” her mother said.
Spierer, who is 4-foot-11 and weighs 95 pounds, has blonde hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing black pants and a white top.
A $250,000 reward is being offered for any information leading to Spierer’s whereabouts. Anyone with tips in the case is urged to contact the Bloomington Police Department by phone at 812-339-4477 or by email at policetips@bloomington.in.gov.

Normal Lauren Spierer kin: Could skull be missing girl's?

Post by raine1953 on Sat Jul 14, 2012 3:03 pm

The discovery of a human skull in an Indianapolis river has a Scarsdale family holding its breath as authorities try to identify the remains.
The family of Lauren Spierer posted a message on their Facebook page Saturday with a link to a news report about the discovery of the skull.
"In the days ahead, a family will have answers they have been desperately seeking," the message reads. "Will it be ours? When will you end this nightmare for our family?"
Spierer, a 20-year-old Indiana University student, was last seen on June 3, 2011, when she left a friend's apartment in Bloomington, Ind. Despite widespread media coverage and repeated appeals from her family, no one has reported seeing Spierer and leads provided to police haven't panned out.
The skull was found Monday by a fisherman in shallow waters near the east bank of the White River, according to Indianapolis Metro Police. Alfie Ballew, deputy coroner for Marion County, told WXIN in Indianapolis that the skull "has been submerged for some time, at least more than a year."
The water where the skull was found is just a few feet deep. If not for summer drought conditions in the Indianapolis area, authorities said, the skull may have remained submerged.
The teeth are intact, Ballew said, so investigators may be able to use dental records in addition to DNA to identify the person. So far, authorities do not know the race or gender of the person . Lab results could take weeks.
The area where the skull was found is more than 50 miles from Bloomington, where Spierer went to school, but the Spierer family has been following news of the investigation.
So have other families, Ballew said.
"We've already started to get calls from people who have reported their loved ones missing," Ballew told WXIN.
Calls to the Marion County Coroner's Office were not immediately returned Saturday.

Lauren Spierer Missing: Family Of Missing College Student Awaits Identity Of Skull Found

Posted: 07/16/2012 2:58 pm Updated: 07/16/2012 3:03 pm

The family of Lauren Spierer, an Indiana college student who disappeared more than a year ago, anxiously await test results regarding a skull found not far from where the young woman disappeared.

"In the days ahead, a family will have answers they have been desperately seeking," the Spierers posted on a Facebook page they maintain about the case. "Will it be ours?"

Fishermen found the skull in the White River on July 9. The location is about 50 miles from the college town of Bloomington, Ind., where Lauren Spierer was last seen. Police divers searched the waterway for additional remains, but none were found.

A spokesperson for Bloomington police told The Huffington Post that the skull will be examined by a forensic anthropologist. The expert will work to determine the age, race, and gender. They will also try to determine whether the skull belongs to Spierer. The testing could take up to two months to complete, police said.

Authorities did not comment on whether there were any indications of external injuries to the skull.

This is not the first time the Spierer family has had to wait for news on a potential match. They went through the same thing in April, when skeletal remains were found west of Bloomington. In that case, experts ultimately determined the bones belonged to an unidentified male.

Lauren Spierer, who would now be 21, was last seen on June 3, 2011 around 4:30 a.m. just a few blocks from her Smallwood Plaza apartment. Earlier in the night, Spierer had visited Kilroy's, a nearby sports bar that closes at 3 a.m. When she left the establishment, she left behind her shoes and cellphone, police said.

After leaving the bar, Spierer reportedly went to fellow college student Corey Rossman's apartment before deciding to walk home. What happened to her after that remains a mystery. She was reported missing less than 12 hours later.

Bloomington police, Indiana University police, the Monroe County Sheriff's Department, Indiana State Police and the FBI have all conducted searches for Spierer.

In April, Spierer's father, Robert Spierer, told the Journal News he is frustrated with the case and had reached a conclusion about Rossman.

"I think he's a liar and a coward," Robert Spierer told the Journal News.

Rossman's lawyer, Carl Salzmann, has previously said his client has no memory of his last moments with Spierer because he was punched in an altercation at her apartment.

Robert Spierer told the newspaper the memory loss claim was "laughable" and a "statement of convenience."

On Saturday, Lauren's family did not name any names but they did post a message that was apparently directed at her abductor.

"When will you end this nightmare for our family? We will never give up," the message reads. "We are just as determined as we were on June 3, 2011. You need to know that. It's our promise to you. For now we continue to wait."

Lauren's family created a website called findlauren.com and are offering a $250,000 reward for information that leads to finding their daughter.

Lauren Spierer is described as a white female who is 4-feet-11-inches tall with a slender build. She has blue eyes and blond hair. She was last wearing a white tank top with a light-colored shirt over it and black stretch pants. Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to call Bloomington Police at 812-339-4477.

Normal Lauren Spierer's Skull Found? Family Waits to Learn Her Fate

Post by raine1953 on Wed Jul 18, 2012 2:19 am

Lauren Spierer went missing a little over one year ago, but her family has never given up hope of finding her. Their search may be over, though, as a skull was recently discovered in the area where she was last seen.
"In the days ahead, a family will have answers they have been desperately seeking. Will it be ours?" the Spierer family posted on Facebook. "When will you end this nightmare for our family? We will never give up. We are just as determined as we were on June 3, 2011. You need to know that. It's our promise to you. For now we continue to wait."

Spierer, a student at Indiana University, disappeared on June 3 last year after a night of partying. She was seen leaving a bar, but police lost her whereabouts soon after. Authorities investigated several persons of interest, though no one was formally charged.

"We are appealing to the parents of the children who may have first-hand or second-hand knowledge of what happened to Lauren," Rob Spierer, Lauren's father, said at a press conference last July. "Please take the time to sit down with your children over the weekend, sit down and talk to them and find out if they know anything."

Police contacted the Spierer family after a fisherman found the skull and brought it to authorities. Divers searched the rest of the lake, but nothing more was found. That does not diminish the Spierer family's resolve to close the case and learn what happened to Lauren.

"We don't have any information," Robert told WRTV Indianapolis. "We're waiting just like everybody else." They may have to wait another six to eight weeks for test results conducted by a forensic anthropologist.

Lauren is 4'11" and weighs less than 100 pounds. Anyone with information related to her disappearance is encouraged to call the Indiana police or leave information at findLauren.com.

If there really are teeth left I don't know why dental records couldn't be compared so her poor parents don't have to wait six to eight weeks. I cannot imagine how they feel....
