Lauren Spierer anniversary: Mother again calls for polygraphs in daughter's disappearance
Originally published: June 2, 2013 5:50 PM
Updated: June 2, 2013 6:00 PM

On the eve of the two-year anniversary of her daughter's disappearance, Charlene Spierer implored the young men who last saw Lauren Spierer to take FBI polygraph tests in order to glean clues about the fate of the 20-year-old Edgemont High School graduate.

"We've never accused anybody," said Charlene Spierer, speaking to News12 at her home Sunday afternoon. "We've just asked people over and over to take the law enforcement polygraphs. All we have is who Lauren was last with and the people who were around her. We just continue to beg anyone to come forward that has information that can help us."
 
Charlene Spierer on Sunday didn't hold out hope of finding her daughter alive. She simply wanted answers about what happened.

"Our expectations have gotten to the point where we really just would hope for a piece of information," she said. "I'm not anywhere near the point of hoping all of a sudden we're going to get information that's going to lead us to Lauren. I'm looking for everything that would help us solve this mystery."

Charlene Spierer said that police would learn more about the night her daughter disappeared if Rosenbaum, Rossman and Beth took polygraph tests. She also wanted Lauren Spierer's then-boyfriend, Jesse Wolff, to take a test. The FBI, rather than local police in Bloomington, would administer the test, she said.

Calls to Wolff's Port Washington home were not immediately returned. Attempts to contact Rosenbaum, Rossman and Beth were unsuccessful.

Key players in the Spierer case: Where are they now?
June 2, 2013, last update: 6/1 @ 11:27 pm

 
Spierer’s boyfriend
Jesse Wolff, 23, of Port Washington, N.Y., December 2011 IU SPEA graduate

Then: He was Spierer’s boyfriend of two years. Spierer was in Bloomington at the start of the summer of 2011 because she was waiting for Wolff to finish his summer class at IU. The two had planned to travel home to the East Coast together.

Now: Works as an assistant account executive for Blue Wolf Communications in Port Washington, N.Y., according to his LinkedIn profile. A phone message left for Wolff at Blue Wolf Communications was not returned.

Smallwood Plaza
David Rohn, 21, of New York, N.Y., studying recreational sport management at the IU’s School of Public Health

Then: Rohn knew Spierer through Smallwood. He told an Indianapolis television station he and Spierer hung out with friends that night. He helped search for Spierer and hang posters in the days after she disappeared.

Now: Rohn is enrolled in IU classes this summer. An email to Rohn was not returned.

5 North Townhomes
Three of those who last saw Spierer lived at the townhomes at 11th and Morton streets.

Corey Rossman, 23, of Sharon, Mass., studying real estate finance at IU’s Kelley School of Business

Then: Video surveillance footage showed Spierer leaving her apartment building for a night out and returning to Smallwood with Rossman. His attorney, Carl Salzmann, reported Rossman got punched during an altercation at Smallwood, and said his client doesn’t remember what happened after he was punched.

Spierer and Rossman then left Smallwood, went through an alley to 5 North Townhomes and visited Rossman’s apartment.

Now: Rossman is enrolled at IU this fall.

Rossman recently told the Journal News, Spierer’s hometown newspaper, that the missing woman’s parents are harassing him and claimed he had nothing to do with Spierer’s disappearance. Charlene Spierer told the newspaper they have never spoken with Rossman.

Lauren Spierer's parents 'appalled' at drug-abuse allegation
Jun. 3, 2013 12:23 PM

The parents of Lauren Spierer said they are appalled that the family of their daughter’s boyfriend “defamed” her by leveling accusations of drug abuse ahead of the second anniversary of her disappearance, calling the remarks “shameful and hurtful.”

“We are appalled that the Wolffs have defamed our daughter knowing that Lauren will never have the opportunity to respond,” Robert and Charlene Spierer told The Journal News Monday in a written statement, referring to the parents of Jesse Wolff. “Moreover to issue their accusations at the two-year anniversary of Lauren’s disappearance is shameful and hurtful in a way we cannot describe.”

Parents of missing college student Lauren Spierer sue 3 men last seen with her


By Cristina Corbin
Published June 27, 2013
FoxNews.com

he parents of missing 20-year-old Lauren Spierer are suing the three former college students who were the last men known to see their daughter alive, the family's attorney tells FoxNews.com.

Spierer, a sophomore at Indiana University from Greenburgh, N.Y., disappeared two years ago from downtown Bloomington after a night of partying with a group of friends and acquaintances.

Robert and Charlene Spierer claim in their civil lawsuit that their daughter's last known interaction with the men -- Corey Rossman, Mike Beth and Jay Rosenbaum -- resulted in her "disappearance, death or injury," according to attorney Jason Barclay.

Lauren Spierer's parents sue 3 who were with their daughter
Jun. 27, 2013

Lauren Spierer’s parents have filed a civil negligence suit against three of their daughter’s fellow students who were with Spierer the night she vanished from Indiana University’s Bloomington campus two years ago.

The suit charges Corey Rossman, Jason Rosenbaum and Michael Beth with “negligence resulting in the disappearance, death or injury of an adult child.” Rossman and Rosenbaum also are charged with “negligence per se” and “dram shop,” a legal term used when damages are sought for providing alcohol to someone who is clearly intoxicated.

Lauren Spierer’s parents sue 3 men who were last to see missing 20-year-old
Friday, June 28, 2013, 10:44 AM

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — The parents of a missing Indiana University student filed a lawsuit against three men who were with her the last night she was seen in hopes of finding out what happened to their daughter in 2011, according to their attorney.

The lawsuit, now pending in U.S. District Court in Indianapolis, claims the students gave 20-year-old Lauren Spierer alcohol, then failed to make sure the intoxicated and incapacitated Spierer made it back to her apartment safely after a night of partying in downtown Bloomington. The Greenburgh, N.Y., native vanished early on June 3, 2011.

The lawsuit claims the actions by the men contributed to Spierer’s “disappearance, injury and death” and seeks unspecified compensation.
 
The Spierers’ lawsuit was transferred last week to federal court at the request of lawyers for the three men, in part because they all now live outside Indiana.

The lawsuit alleges that at various times that night the men provided her with alcohol at apartments and a downtown bar and then let her walk alone to her apartment building several blocks away about 4:30 a.m.

Lauren Spierer's Parents' Lawsuit Against Men Last Seen With Daughter Goes To Federal Court
Posted: 06/27/2013 5:28 pm EDT  |  Updated: 06/28/2013 7:01 pm EDT

 
The suit was filed in Monroe Circuit Court days before the expiration of the statute of limitations for a civil filing, according to WTHR. Federal courts have jurisdiction because the parties to the suit are all from different states, according to WISH-TV.

None of the men in the suit have been named as suspects in Spierer's disappearance, the Associated Press reports. Attorneys for the three defendants did not return request for comment from the AP.

The family hopes the lawsuit will prompt the men to be more forthcoming about what happened that night, their attorney Jason Barclay told Fox News, as Spierer's parents expressed doubt that the men have told the whole truth.

Lauren Spierer suit: Defendants seek dismissal, say there's no proof she's dead
Jul. 25, 2013

Three former Indiana University students accused of negligence in the presumed death of Lauren Spierer say her family’s lawsuit against them fails to prove one critical point — that she’s dead.

“Under Indiana common law, a person who has been missing for less than seven years is presumed to be alive,” Dane Mize, lawyer for defendant Corey Rossman, wrote Thursday in a motion to dismiss the lawsuit
 
Rossman’s lawyer doesn’t contest that his client met up with Lauren Spierer at a party, bought her drinks at a bar and later carried her up the street to the townhouse he shared with Beth. But Mize claims Rossman and the others had no legal requirement to ensure her safe return home.

“There is a distinction under the law between saying that a person should do something and saying that a person has a legal duty to do something,” Mize wrote.

In his motion to dismiss, Rosenbaum’s lawyer, John Trimble, wrote that “Indiana law does not recognize a duty to control or otherwise supervise an intoxicated person.”

Meanwhile, Beth’s lawyer, J. Gregory Garrison, argued for a dismissal because the “wrongful-death statute requires that an injury or death must have occurred.”

“Simply put, plaintiffs cannot prove that Spierer was injured or killed,” he argued.

Spierers: Evidence proves Lauren's death
Updated: Friday, 09 Aug 2013, 1:25 PM EDT
Published : Friday, 09 Aug 2013, 6:28 AM EDT

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WISH) - The parents of Lauren Spierer have asked a judge not to throw out a wrongful death lawsuit against three men who they say last saw their daughter alive.

Attorneys for Corey Rossman, Jason Rosenbaum and Michael Beth say the suit should be dismissed because there is no proof Lauren is dead.

The Spierers claim the law allows them to prove Lauren's death by direct or circumstantial evidence.

They say the job of establishing Lauren's death should be a question for a jury to decide based on the facts presented in court.

In court documents, the Spierers cite "after being last seen in an incapacitated state with the Defendants, Lauren has never been located, despite multiple intensive searches, a thorough investigation, reviews of surveillance tapes from the area, and no affirmative contact with her close family and friends for over two years."
 
A judge is expected to hear the case later this month.

Lauren Spierer case: Men being sued by Spierer's parents want lawsuit dismissed
Aug. 16, 2013 8:32 PM

Lawyers for two men being sued by the parents of missing Indiana University student Lauren Spierer continue their push to have the lawsuit dismissed, saying there’s no evidence Spierer is dead or that her being intoxicated led to her disappearance.

What’s more, the lawyers argue that the men had no legal obligation to ensure her safety in the early hours of June 3, 2011 when she went missing after a night of partying.

In papers filed Thursday in federal court in Indianapolis, lawyers for former Indiana University students Corey Rossman and Jason Rosenbaum, two of the men last reported seen with then 20-year-old Spierer, argue that Spierer is presumed alive under the law.

Spierers’ lawsuit action suspended pending a motion to dismiss case
Posted: Thursday, August 22, 2013 5:37 pm |  Updated: 10:26 pm, Thu Aug 22, 2013

A federal court magistrate has put a hold of sorts on a civil lawsuit filed in the case of missing Indiana University student Lauren Spierer, advising both sides not to proceed until a ruling has been made on motions to dismiss the lawsuit.
 
After a closed pretrial scheduling hearing Thursday that lasted less than a hour, U.S. Magistrate for the Southern District of Indiana Tim Baker issued a ruling telling the attorneys not to proceed to the evidence-gathering portion of the case until federal Judge Tanya Walton Pratt has ruled on three motions to dismiss filed by the defendants in the case.

Official Lauren Spierer Updates from Her Family
September 3.

9/3/13
To Whom This May Concern:

You know the answers to our questions. You are responsible for the tragedy surrounding Lauren’s disappearance. What can be said that hasn’t already been said? At times I think if I could make you feel some compassion, maybe, just maybe, you would send Lauren’s location to the PO Box. The reality is I can make you feel nothing. I’m not sure what you are waiting to hear. I know what our lives have been like since June 3, 2011.

We have tried and tried to get answers. There have been awareness events, concerts, interviews. We have handed out fliers, distributed thousands of bracelets, searched and searched with the help of hundreds of volunteers, throughout Bloomington and surrounding areas, without success. We have received and followed countless leads all of which have lead disappointingly nowhere. What did you do as we waited, only to receive the crushing news that a lead had come up short? Has it given you pleasure or have you been relieved? Have we come close or are we still far from the truth?

To the person responsible, there are many things I don't know about you. The one thing I know without a doubt is that you are the definition of evil. Time does not heal all. With each passing day living with the loss of Lauren is more difficult. Maybe that's what fuels your silence. Maybe what happened to Lauren on June 3, 2011 was not enough. You revel in the pain and suffering you continue to inflict on our family and those who loved Lauren. I have to believe your day of reckoning will come. You cannot possibly think we will ever give up. We never will…

To anyone who has information about Lauren's disappearance, you CAN send an anonymous tip to the post office box. If you are ready to help us by sharing what you know, I implore you to do so by calling the tipline, by sending a private message via Facebook, by sending an email or by calling the private investigator.

Someone knows what happened. Lauren did not make herself disappear.

Signs for missing student Lauren Spierer taken down by city
Updated: Monday, October 28, 2013, 4:43 PM EDT
Published: Monday, October 28, 2013, 1:42 PM EDT


(Provided Twitter photo/‏@CharleneSpierer)

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WISH) - For two years, signs pleading for information regarding the disappearance of Lauren Spierer could be seen around Bloomington.

Now, some of them are gone. City officials said, essentially, that it was time.
 
Later Monday afternoon, the mayor's office released this statement:

The decision to remove the signs around the community was an effort to balance many and varied community interests and input.

For the many people who have felt the signs should have been taken down long ago, it's long overdue.  For those who believe they should remain in place, no time was right to remove them.

The signs were initially put in place by volunteers two years ago.

Our initial intention was to remove them after IU graduation last May.  But local firefighters then decided to renovate the volunteers' signs in April, so a decision was made to wait another six months, which was last week.

No disrespect is intended nor does it reflect any loss of interest in the case.  The community has been very engaged in the case and will remain so.  Posters about the case remain up throughout the campus and community, including in city government buildings, and police agencies continue to actively investigate.

It seems that the city didn't communicate with Lauren's parents about taking down the signs.   

http://www.heraldtimesonline.com/free_access/lauren-spierer-signs-taken-down-by-bloomington-city-crews/article_a86857d8-4008-11e3-ab78-001a4bcf6878.html

Lauren Spierer signs taken down by Bloomington city crews
Posted: Monday, October 28, 2013 3:39 pm |  Updated: 5:52 pm, Mon Oct 28, 2013.

Members of the Bloomington Fire Department’s Station 2 had once again started refurbishing large signs that detail information about missing Indiana University student Lauren Spierer.
 
Then the city took them down.
 
For more than two years, 20 billboard-style signs with information about her disappearance were scattered throughout Bloomington.

“We were just getting ready to fix the weathered ones,” said Lee Chapman, one of the Bloomington firefighters who set out this spring to build large, wooden-framed signs to replace the weathered and dilapidated billboards that were first erected by volunteers when Spierer went missing in June 2011.

Spierer’s parents, Robert and Charlene, recently purchased poster board and paid to have some of the billboard-style signs of their daughter reprinted.

Chapman got word Thursday evening from his boss that the city planned to take the signs down.

By 6:30 Friday morning, Chapman received a text message saying the signs that were on city property were gone.

“I work for the city. I’m a city firefighter. It would have been nice if they would have eased us into it,” Chapman said. “We’re just trying to help the family, you know?”

Bloomington Mayor Mark Kruzan confirmed city crews collected the larger, billboard-style signs and placed them in storage on Friday.
 
A Facebook group “Email Drive for Lauren” was created on Monday, asking people to email Kruzan to request putting the signs back in place.
