    Sources: Lauren Giddings' Garment found in McDaniel's Apartment
    By AMY LEIGH WOMACK and JOE KOVAC JR. - Telegraph staff

    Potential evidence in the Lauren Giddings slaying investigation sent to an FBI lab includes a pair of the victim’s underwear discovered in her suspected killer’s apartment, sources familiar with the investigation say.
    The panties found in a search of Stephen Mark McDaniel’s apartment bear Giddings’ DNA, a source close to the case said Tuesday.

    DA Won't Comment on Giddings Evidence

    Bibb County's District Attorney says he won't comment on a report that authorities found a pair of Lauren Giddings' panties in her accused killer's next-door apartment.

    Asked about the newspaper report, District Attorney Greg Winters declined comment. In a text reply to 13WMAZ's Randall Savage, Winters wrote, "No comment. Not very happy that information was leaked."

    Death Penalty Sought for McDaniel in Lauren Giddings Case

    Winters [Bibb County's District Attorney] says he's filed a motion seeking the death penalty
    on the grounds that Giddings killing was "outrageously or wantonly vile, horrible or inhuman in that it involved depravity of mind."

    In addition to Giddings' murder, he is charged with two counts of burglary and with sexual exploitation of a child, for allegedly possessing child pornography.

    Update: Giddings family supports DA’s decision to seek death against McDaniel
    “It’s good to see the process moving along. ... We hope it’s over as soon as possible,” said Kaitlyn Wheeler, Giddings’ sister.

    Lauren Giddings and the Man Whose Heart She Won

    David S. Vandiver, an athletic man in his late 40s, spent the last Sunday in June in Southern California honing his golf game at an instructional school near Palm Springs.

    He remembers because, nearly six months later, he remembers most everything about that trip in excruciating detail.

    Part II
    It Was Just Like Her: Unmissable

    A close friend from her days at Agnes Scott College and, later, at the law firm where they interned, thinks she favored pink because of the way she embodied its beam.

    “It was just like her. Unmissable,” that close friend recalls in an e-mail.

    “Unapologetic in its simultaneous innocence and boldness, and certain to draw a smile and start a conversation. If there are two things of this world that sum (her) up they are champagne and the color pink -- they are sweet, life-affirming and cause for celebration.

    Chief Burns of the Macon Police Department commented on Lauren Giddings's murder case in an interview with WMAZ today.

    Macon Police Chief Answers Viewers' Questions
    He says investigators are still waiting for more evidence to come back from the FBI's forensic crime lab. He said the FBI has not given the police department a timeline on when to expect results. He says the police department has turned everything over to the district attorney's office.

    Chief Burns also responded to viewer questions about community issues.

    McDaniel's Attorneys will Challenge Grand Jury Makeup, Searches in Giddings Case
    At a half-hour-long morning hearing in Bibb County Superior Court to go over capital-case ground rules, McDaniel’s attorneys, Floyd Buford and co-counsel Franklin J. Hogue, noted a number of issues they intend to contest.

    Video of the hearing

    McDaniel Defense Plans Challenges, May Contest Warrant
    Nearly seven months after a slaying that shocked and captivated many locals, the 26-year-old defendant showed maybe the most outward signs yet that he has taken an active role in his defense.
    Gone was the gaunt, glazed-over shell of a suspect who trudged into court. He looked attentive, studious even...

    Kristin S. Miller of Atlanta, who met Giddings when the two were undergraduates at Agnes Scott College in Atlanta, was sitting in the front row behind the prosecution table...

    “He doesn’t look like the monster in the shackles and the orange jumpsuit, but he’s still a monster. ... I’m just kind of surprised he has dropped the zombie act,” Miller, 28, said.

    “I made eye contact with him for the first time today and it was chilling. It was disgusting.”

    McDaniel Hearing Adjourns Without a Ruling on Bond
    WMAZ Staff, WMAZ 11:21 a.m. EDT April 2, 2012

    Winters, the district attorney, reviewed details of the case previously disclosed to support the higher bond request: women's underpants with Giddings' DNA were found in McDaniel's bedroom along with a key to Giddings' apartment.

    Winters said investigators found a saw with Giddings' remains on it and found packaging for the saw in McDaniel's apartment.

    Bibb County Prosecutors -- "Mickey Finn" Post at Center of McDaniel Hearing
    By AMY LEIGH WOMACK — awomack@macon.com
    A Bibb County judge ruled Tuesday that the bond for accused killer Stephen McDaniel should remain at $850,000...

    The Telegraph learned in April that Hollis Browning, the grandfather who owned a farm in Pike County, died April 24. Browning offered to pay a retainer for a lawyer to represent McDaniel when he was first charged with burglary July 1...

    The man who claims that he authored the “Mickey Finn” post lives in Oklahoma. He first heard of McDaniel, who posted to the operatorchan.org message board, after McDaniel allegedly wrote about hypothetical ways to deal with religious demonstrators after the man’s brother was killed in Afghanistan...

    Night of Panic: The night before Lauren Giddings was found dead, her friends and kin sounded the alarm

    Sunday, June 24, 2012

    By AMY LEIGH WOMACK and JOE KOVAC JR. — Telegraph staff

    From the article, Lauren's mom, Karen Giddings:

    In the most depressing times, the thought that keeps running through her mind about losing Lauren, about her life ripped away, is that “I just don’t know why.”
    Sometimes she tries to imagine Lauren in the afterlife.


    “Of course, I think Lauren’s in heaven, but to think of her on this white, fluffy cloud, it wouldn’t be good enough for her,” Karen says.


    “I talked to a priest friend of mine, and he said, ‘She’s not floating around. She’s at this heavenly banquet. There’s a feast and there’s wine.’ ... I try to visualize that, because that is Lauren.”


    Amen, Mrs. Giddings, amen.

    Defense Attorneys: DNA on Saw May Not Belong to McDaniel

    By AMY LEIGH WOMACK and JOE KOVAC JR. — Telegraph staff

    A hacksaw with Giddings’ DNA on it may not contain McDaniel’s DNA. An FBI analysis of the saw showed it had DNA from three or more people, according to one of the defense motions...

    Later, police found a pair of green-and-white, blood-stained panties in a dresser drawer inside the apartment of her accused killer, Stephen McDaniel.

    A medical examiner would later find a few, several-inch-long brown hairs on Giddings’ abdomen. A clump of brown and blond hair was on the back of her shorts.

    Giddings, 27, had blond hair. McDaniel, now 27, had shoulder-length brown hair at the time.


    Lawyers Want McDaniel's Perfect Murder Discussion Kept Out of Court

    By AMY LEIGH WOMACK and JOE KOVAC JR. — Telegraph staff

    McDaniel’s defense team, in a Friday court filing, dismisses such “college ramblings” between McDaniel and his friend as “casual conversations of young college students based on curious musings, not deep criminal confessions.”

    A year and a half after Mercer Law School grad Lauren Giddings was found murdered and dismembered in the trash can outside her apartment complex, many of the details of the ensuing investigation are now public record.

    Some of the facts of the case were shared in a series of 31 motions filed by the defense team of Stephen McDaniel, Giddings' neighbor and accused killer.

    The team of lawyers representing Stephen McDaniel-- the man accused of killing and dismembering Mercer Law graduate Lauren Giddings-- are challenging the District Attorney's intent to seek the death penalty.

    DA Greg Winters filed his notice of intent to seek the death penalty almost a year ago on the grounds that Giddings' murder was "outrageously or wantonly vile, horrible or inhuman in that it involved depravity of mind."

    Documents in Giddings Slaying Chronicle Case's Early Hours

    Published December 15, 2012, Updated December 17, 2012
    By AMY LEIGH WOMACK and JOE KOVAC JR. — Telegraph staff

    But what went on in a roughly 20-hour span in the immediate aftermath of Lauren Giddings’ torso being found has largely remained a secret.

    What may or may not have happened in those hours could prove pivotal in the defense that Stephen McDaniel’s lawyers are mounting for their 27-year-old client.

    Court documents filed Friday by McDaniel’s attorneys, Franklin J. Hogue and Floyd Buford, also reveal an almost hour-by-hour chronology that police and prosecutors have, for the most part, kept under wraps since their probe began a year and a half ago.

    Wrongful death suit seeks search for Giddings' remains
    Published: June 17, 2013
    By AMY LEIGH WOMACK and JOE KOVAC JR. — Telegraph staff
    In a $5 million-plus wrongful death lawsuit, the parents of slain Mercer University law graduate Lauren Giddings contend that her accused killer stole pictures of her and, after dismembering her, painted over blood stains on her apartment walls.
    In hopes of finding her remains, they want a federal judge to let them search farmland that belonged to one of suspect Stephen McDaniel’s grandfathers.

    Giddings' sister, Kaitlyn Wheeler, told the station in an email: "My parents and I are dedicated to pursuing every avenue the law allows to seek justice for my sister and find out exactly what happened here. In addition to an opportunity to get answers, a civil judgment against McDaniel will ensure he never profits from what he did to my sister."

    Search Did Not Find Lauren Giddings' Remains
    8:58 AM, Aug 26, 2013
    A search for Lauren Giddings' remains Friday did not turn up any evidence, according to Jami Gaudet with the Macon Police Department. Major Charles Stone with the police department says last week a woman told investigators she believes she saw Stephen McDaniel, who is accused of killing neighbor and classmate Giddings, come out of woods near Houston Road about two years ago.

    In an effort to find the rest of Giddings' remains, her parents have filed a $5 million civil suit against Stephen McDaniel, the man accused of her murder and dismemberment. Billy and Karen Giddings, of North Laurel, hope a judge will allow a search of a 63-acre wooded property owned by McDaniel's late grandfather, where the Giddings believe McDaniel may have hidden other parts of their daughter's body.
