    Oh my. This is shocking.

    ETA: Apparently the landfill has been secured and is being searched.

    This is so sad. It is hard to know what is in the mind of a killer. IF that is her body I pray that her spirit is carried on in all who knew and loved her. Thank you for posting this.

    My thoughts and prayers are with her family, her boyfriend, and her friends.

    This is turning into what appears to be a very bizarre story. The body found outside the apartment was dismembered.

    The reports say Saturday night she emailed a friend to say someone had tried to break into her apartment and she was afraid. Then she disappears without a trace leaving keys/cell phone/everything in her apartment with no signs of forced entry. She most likely let the killer in to her apartment.

    Why did she email to say she was afraid and not contact the police? Did she have a stalker or suspect who might have tried to break which is why she was afraid later yet did not get the authorities involved?

    Her neighbor (a fellow law student) was arrested on old burglary charges and is being held. The police aren't saying much of anything. There is likely a very bloody crime scene close by (if this is in fact her) so this shouldn't take too long to solve.

    Burglary

    The police are probably "holding" him on the burglary and hoping this will stop him from skipping town.

    She might have had a "feeling" because of hearing noises, smelling something, or things being moved. I endured a stalker for 9 months. I knew someone was near, I knew someone was watching me but I didn't see them. I found cigarette butts around the outside of my house and I didn't smoke. I don't know if it was just a feeling or what but one night I looked out my front door window straight into his eyes.

    This could be what happened with her only she might have opened the door.

    If this had been going on for a while she probably wouldn't have called the police because what would she say. I "feel" like I have a stalker, I "feel" like someone is trying to break in? It could have been her "sixth sense" at work as it was with me.

    That makes sense. Plus this woman did a lot of criminal defense work for low lifes (thieves, burglars, etc...) so if weird things started happening she may have had a long list of possible suspects.

    It is not looking good for the neighbor, they have called him a person of interest now. If it was the neighbor and she had no clue she might have welcomed him because she was grateful for the company.

    Shouldn't take too long to file murder charges IF the neighbor is the culprit and if the dismembered body is hers. There is virtually no way to dismember a body in a bathroom or wherever and get rid of every trace of DNA (well there probably is a way but anyone that was smart enough to do it wouldn't leave the body in the parking lot outside of the victims house!)

    (edit apparently sodium hydroxide is pretty good at destroying dna)

    Dismembering a body

    I don't understand why people murder someone and dismember the body. What kind of sick person can do that?

    Well some folks don't want to but probably have to dismember the body for various reasons (too big to move, disposal in landfill, etc...). In this case it sounds like they did it because they wanted too, she wasn't a big person and they left the remains near her house with no attempt to hide the crime.

    They found the body right after she was reported missing so it was probably there since Sunday.

    Did the possible break-in happen while she was in the apartment, or while she was outside? I was confused from the article's wording.

    In the video the neighbor said the email stated she was afraid because someone had tried to break into the apartment 2 days before. I would hope she was not home, surely she would have called the police!

    Watch the extended interview with the suspect neighbor where he discusses the contents of the email: http://www.13wmaz.com/video/default....=1034114633001

    She said she thought Macon Hoodlums had tried to break in. Boy does the neighbor guy sound sincere, if he is smart enough to lie that well he would be smart enough to hide the body. If he did this he must be crazy/dillusional.

    Macon police say they now assume that the body found yesterday is that of Lauren Giddings, the missing woman they have been searching for, and that she was a homicide victim.

    this is horrible

    Yall - I am originally from Macon which is how I found out about this yesterday. I have a lot of friends who went to college and law school downtown. It is not a very safe place. If this neighbor (who is a law school student too) did it, he was very convincing in the interview. It's just tragic.
    btw - I've been lurking around WB for years - just now logged in for 1st time.
