BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Police investigating the disappearance of Lauren Spierer were given DNA samples Friday afternoon from Corey Rossman, the Indiana University student Spierer was with the morning she went missing, and his roommate, Mike Beth.
Beth told The Journal News on Friday night that he did give a DNA sample but that he was told by his lawyer not to discuss the case with reporters.
"I just hope that they find her," he said. "She was our friend."
Ronald Chapman, a lawyer for Beth, said his client was reinterviewed by police Friday.
"There was no reason for him not to," said Chapman, who described it as a "wrap-up" interview and suggested police would have no further interest in talking with his client. He would not elaborate. He declined to comment on details of the investigation or reveal what his client said about Spierer's visit to the apartment.
