    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

    That's true.

    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.
