    Welcome and thank you for joining the discussion.

    Good Things to Know before you Post


    • Websleuths is a victim friendly environment. Discussing a victim's behavior or character is acceptable only when it's relevant to the circumstances of the case and done so in a reasonable manner. This policy extends to family members of the victim, as well.
    • Do not attack or bash other members. Arguments should be aimed at the post, but not at the poster. If you're having a consistent problem with a member who always gets under your skin, go to the User Control Panel and enter a selection to ignore that member. If you need help finding the Ignore feature, a mod will be glad to help you.
    • If you see an offensive post, don't call out the poster. Hit the Alert icon (red triangle) so a mod can handle the problem. If you respond to the post, you risk becoming part of the problem. If you quote an offensive post that is later deleted by a mod, your post is subject to deletion, as well.
    • Rumors circulating on other message boards and websites meant to harm or incriminate individuals not mentioned in MSM reports as parties in a case, must remain where you found them.
    • Do not link to Facebook, Myspace and other social networking sites associated with individuals, such as relatives and friends of victims and suspects. Generally, it is okay to link to a victim's page or a named suspect's page.
    • Do not copy and paste posts or comments from other sites. If you come across a post/comment that is pertinent to the discussion, type a sentence or two describing what it says, and then post a link. Please use common sense when referencing comments from other sites.
    • We can cut and paste from MSM news articles, but no more than 10% of the original article. And always provide a link.
    • Do not ask other members to send you a PM, and do not discuss PM's in the open forum. Remember, the P stands for "Private".
    • Members who wish to post opinions as experts or professionals in a particular field; or, members who wish to post as locals/insiders with specific information about a case, must first be verified. See the link below for more information.
    • If you have any doubts or questions about what is acceptable, please do not hesitate to contact a mod.

    These links contain helpful user information. Others are posted in the sticky sections of the forums.

    A quick question...what is the most likely theory of why her keys and purse ended up where they did? According to the map of her route she never walked directly by that location.

    Here’s a question:
    How thorough are Law Enforcement when it comes to searching homes in a case like this? We know they’ve searched CR, JR, and JW’s homes at least, I would hope they would have also searched the homes of anyone Lauren knows at 10 North.

    We know dogs have been brought in, would it also be routine to do things such as

    1) Confiscate and examine computers?
    2) Look through receipts, notebooks, suff like that?
    3) Check for traces of blood/DNA in sinks, tubs, on the carpet, on clothing etc...?

    Can they do this if they don’t already have clear evidence linking a person to a crime? What would a warrant allow them to do? I’m just curious what is routine.

    The map is an approximation. She likely did walk by that location.
    Just my opinion

    I don't think LE can do any of these things unless they get an warrant or the person agrees to let them do it. And I am not sure how many people would agree with confiscation of their computer voluntarily.
    Just my opinion

    LE can probably get warrants for some places/things based on "probable cause", standard not being as high as needed to arrest someone. But at the most, probably places where Lauren was known to be that night, not just places where she knew people. Probably can get them for electronics of a number of people, JMO.
    Just my opinion, of course.

    Do you guys know when we will get aheads down/up on the body?

    Considering the Spierers were passing flyers for people to help find Lauren, I don't think it's her. But I'd still like a confirmation.

    I want to know who that is regardless. Hopefully some other case can get solved if its not LS.
    Just my opinion

    I kind of hope she turns out to be one of the cases here on WS...and think it could be, due to the decomposition, it is not someone who just went missing this past week, for example. For some reason, I was thinking Roxanne Shah, but now, not so much, due to location. Maybe the grandmother who went missing June 13th?

    PS- Obviously I don't mean I hope anyone we've dicussed here is deceased...just hoping one case can be resolved...
    Just my opinion, of course.

    They started at 9:30 EST this morning, so it's only been an hour. Hopefully some answers will come soon.

    ?? That location is at least an hour away from Bloomington.

    If not Lauren...where is she?? Will she be found?
    In most cases I have followed it seems to be right away or a very long time...
    Morgan was one exception, found in about 3.5 months, which is relatively "quick."

    But so many others, not at all...I always hear Mark Klaas saying, as he did on Nancy Grace one night, when talking about Hasanni Campbell..."it is such a huge world and his body is so tiny..."
    Just my opinion, of course.
