Edgemont classmates join search for IU student
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — The student who was with Lauren Spierer in the hours before her disappearance has no memory of their last moments together, his lawyer told The Journal News on Wednesday night.

Corey Rossman, Spierer’s companion early Friday, was punched in the face after the two returned to her apartment building, Smallwood Plaza.

“At Smallwood, someone confronted them,” his lawyer, former Monroe  County District Attorney Carl Salzmann said.

“He got punched in the face. He has no memory of that, or of the 15 minutes leading to that moment. The first memory he has is the next morning when he wakes up in his bed, and that’s collaborated by several people.”

Police have said Spierer was with the student — who they have not identified — at a nearby bar and that the two were seen on videotape returning to her residence about 2:30 a.m. They then left the building about 10 minutes later, police said.

“She was helping him home at that point,” Salzmann said, because Rossman had been punched.

The two then went to a building complex up the street, where Rossman lives. Police have said she visited two apartments there. Salzmann said there was another “confrontation” that morning at Rossman’s building, but he would not elaborate.

Spierer was last seen rounding a corner on her way back to her apartment — a half mile away — at about 4:15 a.m. Salzmann said Rossman was not the last one to see Spierer that morning; three or four others saw her after Rossman.

Asked what he thinks happened to Spierer, he said, “I have my theory.
“I hope they follow all the leads we’ve given.”

Video footage from security cameras at Lauren Spierer’s apartment building show her and several men in an argument that morning.

“My daughter and these other boys are on the video,” Spierer’s father, Robert, said Wednesday.

“There was an altercation between the boy my daughter was with and some boys here at Smallwood.”

Robert Spierer said he did not see the video himself.

No one answered the door at Rossman’s apartment Wednesday night.

Day 6 of Lauren Spierer search brings new developments
Updated: Jun 09, 2011 12:28 AM CDT
By Jennie Runevitch - bio

BLOOMINGTON - Eyewitness News has learned that police are now searching Lake Monroe for 20 year old Lauren Spierer.The Monroe County Sheriff's Department says its dive team is searching at the request of Bloomington Police.

That search will likely resume Thursday morning, after crews spent hours in the water Wednesday evening.

As the search went on Wednesday night, there came word of possible new answers in the disappearance of the missing IU student.

A suburban New York newspaper reported that security video police seized from the Smallwood apartments where Lauren lives, may reveal new information about what happened the night she was last seen. The newspaper in Westchester County reported that Lauren's father told them that the surveillance video shows an altercation between the male acquaintance Lauren was with that night and other boys in the building.

But in an interview with the Today Show, Robert Spierer strongly denies the newspaper's story.

In fact, he says he's never even seen the surveillance video.

Investigators believe Lauren's disappearance is a result of foul play.
They're now talking to the acquaintances who saw her last, verifying their stories.

"We're working on the polygraphs now,"  Lt. Bill Parker said in a news conference Wednesday morning.

Eyewitness News has learned Sheriff's department dive teams used boats and sonar to search Lake Monroe Wednesday night, at the request of Bloomington Police. They'll likely be back on the water Thursday.

I'm a tad confused now - maybe it's too early in the morning - but is the same boy that said he watched her walk down the street that night the same one now saying he was hit in the face so he has no memory? Oh - please correct me if I'm wrong...

Police mum on Lauren Spierer investigation

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WISH) - Bloomington Police Department had little to say Thursday at its daily update on the search for missing Indiana University student Lauren Spierer.

Bloomington Lt. Bill Parker said the department is receiving a lot of information, but wouldn’t get into details about the case. Parker wouldn’t name names of people the department was speaking to or putting through lie detectors.

 ::snipping2::

Parker also wouldn’t address media reports that a student Spierer was with was punched while the two were together.

“Lauren was not involved in the altercation,” Parker said, continually emphasizing he wouldn’t comment further.

The search continues for Spierer, who has been missing since 4:30 a.m. Friday. On Thursday, Parker said officials haven’t narrowed the search to a particular area.

“We’re still needing to look pretty much everywhere,” Parker said.

Lauren's father, Robert Spierer, continued thanking people and urging them to continue to help with the search for his daughter on Thursday. He said the family is now offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to Lauren's safe return.

Yes, at first you think what's with all the contradictions? And I just heard on HLN that the police will be speaking with persons of interest "soon". Soon! What's going on? But now I think they must be purposely confusing and vague and are playing a cat and mouse game. At least I hope that's it.

Bloomington, Ind.—

According to reports, Lauren Spierer's companion on the last night she was seen, has no memory his last moments with her. At some point, Corey Rossman, Spierer's companion Friday evening, was punched in the face after the two had returned to the Smallwood Plaza apartments.

In an interview, former Monroe County District Attorney Carl Salzmann who is representing Rossman, stated that at around 2:40 am Friday Rossman and Spierer were involved in a confrontation with another group of young people. At some point during the altercation Rossman was struck. It was at that point, according to Salzmann, that Rossman and Spierer left and returned to his apartment. Spierer was last scene leaving the apartment building at 4:30 am, heading back to her own apartment.

Salzmann went on to say that Rossman, who is from Sharon, Massachusetts, was not involved in Spierer's disappeance and that he was cooperating with the police. However, Salzman stated "there is a lot more to this," alluding to the conditions that lead up to the initial confrontation. Salzmann said he has provided additional information to the Bloomington Police.

Meanwhile, Spierer's mother said the family is offering a $100,000 reward. Charlene Spierer told FOX 59 News Thursday morning that the reward is for any information that leads to the safe return of Lauren.

oh man. I suppose it is possible he was hit so hard he can't remember it. Sounds like she was helping her friend and got stuck in the middle of it all. I am not clear on something, did they find the other group of people? Do they know who they are?

The more I read about the altercation the less I think Corey did something to her.  LE is saying that the altercation had nothing to do with Lauren.

The other guys are students at IU, and the police will not go into the specifics regarding the altercation.  Police are not prepared to release any names.

I'm not sure if Corey did anything to her.    However, Laren's friends wanted her to stay with them and not go off with Corey; and one of them punched Corey in the face.

It seems like a false lead to focus on Corey. After Leaving Smallwood with Corey assaulted,  Lauren "escorted" Corey to his apt. where he passed out til the next morning. I could believe he was blackout drunk. Then she went to another apt. in the same building or complex where there were multiple friends. One of which is the one who watched her head back to Smallwood. In that next 5 minutes she was abducted. It seems hard to believe that something happened in the multiple friends apt, someone would have confessed by now. It goes back to something sinister at Smallwood or a coincidental abduction by some creep.

What about traffic cameras at stoplights? To remove Lauren from the area and drive at that hour the police would be looking at every car. Just had a horrible feeling she is in one of the apts in Smallwood. Is there a parking garage attached?

Parker did say police have found an image of Spierer on tape from a security camera in an alley. It showed her with someone else walking from a friend’s apartment to her apartment, Strong said.

so she was walked home? Until what happened?
