Lauren Spierer Case: Missing Body Found?

by at . Comments

A badly decomposed body was found that may be tied to the case of missing Indiana student Lauren Spierer, who vanished without a trace June 3.

The body was discovered Sunday floating between some debris in Fall Creek, about 50 miles north of the Bloomington campus where she studied.

Police said Monday that positive identification from an autopsy will be difficult and may not be available today, according to the Indianapolis Star.

Missing Lauren

The 20-year-old fashion merchandising major from Edgemont, N.Y., disappeared after drinking at a bar on June 3. But is the missing body hers?

A local great-grandmother, 74-year-old Dorothy Mae Heard, also went missing on June 13, although her car remained in her home driveway.

On Friday, Lauren's father, Rob Spierer, joined by his wife Charlene, made an appeal for anyone with knowledge of the case to come forward.

"We are appealing to the parents of the children who may have firsthand or secondhand knowledge of what happened to Lauren," he said.

The ongoing search for Lauren has its own Facebook page and is composed of more than 1,000 volunteers and some 1,500 tips thus far.

Julie sweet heart its not cereal its serial, if the person had stepped on 3 pieces of some sort of cereal than you would be correct in saying cereal killer, But in this case with those women it is Serial Killer.

I have sit and read all about Lauren Speares, who disappeared on June 3rd, 2012, Jill Behrman May 31, 2000 which was 3 days apart not including years, then there was the grandmother Dorthy Mae Heard who disapeared June 13th year ukn, I can't help but wonder if there is a person/s who is apart of the employment of the Fun Frolic, granted this is a long shot but these wemon always seem to disappear in this same time frame, could we have a cereal killer on the lose? Or maybe a guy named Tim who is in the military?? who knows, but i will keep looking for her as i am a mother of 4 and suspect how it would kill me to go through this.
