Call me stupid but if they have video of her entering, exiting the alley earlier (2:51 am) in the morning why do they not have the same for the later time (4:27 am)?

Oh, fatcatlurker, ask any questions and make any comments.  We are here to support Lauren's parents; we want Lauren found! The reason why Lauren is not shown at 4:27 a.m. is because she didn't take the alley on her way back to her apartment.  According to Jay, she left his townhouse and walked east along 11th Street toward College Street.  There were no video cameras along that path.

NEWSCORE
Last Updated: 11:53 AM, July 4, 2011


INDIANAPOLIS -- The Bloomington, Ind., police department said Monday a decomposed body had been found on the northeast side of Indianapolis, but it remained unknown if the remains are related to the case of a missing Indiana University college student.

WXIN-TV reported that a female body was pulled from Fall Creek on Indianapolis' northeast side Sunday evening.
The body, which was floating in the creek while lodged between some debris, was reported by witnesses around 6:50pm ET, the station reported.

Authorities would not confirm the report that the body was that of a woman, but said a forensic examination was pending.

Indiana police wait for identification on a body found in creek
By the CNN Wire Staff
July 4, 2011 2:24 p.m. EDT


(CNN) -- Investigators in the case of a missing Indiana University student hope forensic evidence will help them determine whether a decomposing body found in a creek Monday north of Indianapolis is connected with the disappearance of Lauren Spierer.

Bloomington police are in contact with the Indianapolis Metropolitan police, the agency that recovered the body, but there is not enough information for police to "determine the identity or a basic description of the body," Lt. William Parker said in a statement.

Parker hopes a pending forensic examination will provide more information, his statement said.

CNN affiliates reported an autopsy on the female body will be performed Tuesday.

Judging from maps, not direct experience, I believe that Fall Creek is a highly developed suburban area. I don't think someone would go north from Bloomington, through Indy, to dump a body here. Even the reservoir to which it connects has private property lots all around. But I do hope they find Lauren soon.

Another site says the person was pronounced dead in the 6500 block of N Fall Creek Parkway. According to Google maps, this location is 64.5 miles from the 11th street address, with an estimated driving time of one hour and 14 minutes. Seems like an odd direction to go, north through the city like that. Also, there is a 47-year-old woman missing from Noblesville, sort of nearby; she's been missing for two weeks.

I am leaning toward the Noblesville woman....however....there are no real highways in Bloomington.  To get to Long Island you would have to go up 37 to 465 and then East on 70.  Falls Creek is a couple exits past 70....very easy to get to.

Ooops. The woman missing from Noblesville is 74, not 47. Noblesville is about 14 miles from the Fall Creek site. I think they should be able to tell pretty quickly whether the person they found is closer to 20 or to 74.

Here are the floor plans for Unit 297 at 5 North Townhomes in Bloomington. This is the end unit, identified in Herald Times Online photos as the one Jay Rosenbaum occupied. Couple of comments. (1) The place has 5 bedrooms. Was he there alone? Were other residents away for the summer? (2) The place has only one entrance, no rear exit. Doesn't Bloomington have fire codes? (3) The townhomes are not connected inside. You have to go outside to get from one to another.

First Floor:



Second Floor:



Third Floor:



Fourth Floor:

I love the Q and A on the Curry Development website:

14. Is the living environment conducive for families?

Not really. The majority of the tenants are either undergraduate or graduate students. Those that are undergraduate are mostly Juniors and Seniors.


15.Are we expected to change our own light bulbs?

Our philosophy is that if you can reach it without having to get on a ladder, then you can change to bulb. If it requires a ladder, then we are happy to change it for you. Please complete one of the on-line maintenance request forms to request service.  (These are college and grad students?) 
 
 ::snipping2::
 
17. Is on-site parking available?

Yes it is. One of our leasing consultants will talk about this option during your consultation. Parking is assigned on a first come first serve basis. We do monitor the parking situation and issue each holder a tag/permit for use throughout the year. Parking passes are annual and is collected at the start of your lease. Review your lease for the terms and conditions.    (So the lightbulb wizards have to go outside and around to the back to get to their cars? How inconvenient! What do they do when it's raining?)

Spierer family seeks 'reflections' about Lauren
Updated: Jul 05, 2011 9:43 PM CDT
By Emily Longnecker

BLOOMINGTON - A plea from Lauren Spierer's parents, this time not in front of the cameras but in an e-mail to her close friends. 

"Many of you have expressed a desire to share your individual perspective of how Lauren has affected your life, " says the message.  The family plans to put reflections they receive on the Find Lauren Web site under a new category called Reflections.

Retired Indianapolis Police Department captain and crime author Robert Snow, who's not involved with the Spierer case, says the call is the right thing to do now that organized searches have ended.

"In any missing person's case, the key to finding this person is publicity.  The more publicity you have, the more this persons name and picture is out there in the public, the better chances you have of finding them," says Snow.

Amnesty policy promotes students' safety
Posted: Wednesday, July 6, 2011 10:00 am | Updated: 9:39 am, Wed Jul 6, 2011.
EDITORIAL BOARD

 ::snipping2::

The new good Samaritan policy is the product of much lobbying to the administration from the former Purdue Student Government President Brad Krites and other PSG members.

The policy states that “the intoxicated student, as well as the student(s) seeking medical attention on the intoxicated student's behalf, will be exempt from disciplinary sanction related to alcohol consumption.”

Thus, underage students who have been drinking do not get punished by the University when they call for assistance for a friend

 ::snipping2::

This policy is enacted shortly after the disappearance of Indiana University student, 20-year-old Lauren Spierer. Spierer disappeared early morning on June 3 after a night of drinking near the Bloomington campus. Friends of Spierer have yet to come forth with their accounts of the disappearance despite urgings from both the police and Spierer’s parents.

Police working on the case have said cooperation from Spierer’s friends could open new leads for them and possibly lead to solving the case.

Indiana University has not instated a medical amnesty policy yet but is in the process of lobbying for a policy similar to Purdue’s

Lauren Spierer case: Legal issues on searches, witnesses, grand juries answered
By Rebecca Troyer 331-4243 | rtroyer@heraldt.com
July 8, 2011, last update: 7/8 @ 3:45 pm

 ::snipping2::

Why aren’t they talking?
According to Shawn Boyne, associate professor at Indiana University School of Law-Indianapolis whose academic specialties include criminal law and procedure, there are several possible reasons why witnesses might refuse to talk.

“The primary reason why witnesses remain silent is that they may fear that, by speaking to the police they may expose themselves to potential criminal and civil liability,” Boyne said. “Although a prosecutor may offer a potential witness immunity in certain circumstances, that immunity only governs criminal actions. If a case where serious injury or death is a possibility, a witness with information may fear the potential criminal and civil liability. A second reason why a potential witness may remain silent is that they fear retribution from the person who actually committed the crime."

 ::snipping2::

In the Spierer case, it’s not clear whether a grand jury would help move the investigation along.

“The difficult fact to accept is that missing person’s cases are extremely difficult to solve if evidence does not surface early in a case,” Boyne said. “Although it is natural for the public to feel concern and empathy for the victim, public pressure to do something can be counterproductive if that pressure forces law enforcement and the prosecutors office to take actions that may in the long run diminish the chances of solving the case.”

 ::snipping2::

Who and what can be searched?
During the extensive public searches for clues about Spierer’s disappearance, Bloomington citizens, including residents and business owners in the downtown area, were encouraged, but not compelled, to search their own private property. As Boyne noted, the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution protects people from “unreasonable searches and seizures,” which means if police intend to search private property, they must obtain a proper warrant issued by a judge.

So heartbreaking.  We are keeping Lauren and her family in our prayers.  I hope they find her soon, and I pray anyone that knows anything, heard anything or witnessed anything to come forward.
