Police: Lauren Spierer case still a priority
Bloomington Police said Thursday they've received more than 2,600 tips since Indiana University student Lauren Spierer disappeared last June.

It's been nearly one year since Spierer disappeared. Despite all that time, police still don't know what happened to her.

The police department released a statement Thursday saying, “much has been done on this case and much continues to be done. ... Some place significance on the date marking one year since Lauren disappeared, but the passing of time has not deterred the effort or commitment on the part of the Bloomington Police Department to provide answers to Lauren's family and the Bloomington community.”

Behind the story: Reporter tries to put himself in Lauren Spierer's place
As my colleague Robert King and I planned our coverage of the one-year anniversary of Lauren Spierer's disappearance, we had a question: What would downtown Bloomington have been like the night she was last seen?
So I set out to walk the path Spierer took in those well-documented final few hours. I walked the streets of Bloomington about the same time (between midnight and 4:30 a.m.), the same day of week, and the same time of year as she did.

Tooth may help parents get speedier answer about Indiana skull
Lauren Spierer’s parents may learn within a matter of days whether a human skull found July 8 is that of their missing daughter, the Marion County, Ind., Coroner’s Office told The Journal News.
It would typically take eight weeks to get test results on a human skull, but forensic experts are extracting a tooth from the skull that will be cross-referenced with dental records for Spierer that are already on file, Deputy Coroner Alfarena Ballew said.

Lauren Spierer: Family still seeks closure in daughter's disappearance
The tips have dwindled and police in Bloomington, Ind., seem no closer to solving the June 2011 disappearance of Lauren Spierer, an Indiana University student from Greenburgh.
But her parents are continuing their efforts to keep the case alive through national media appearances, hoping to pressure those who were with her early on June 3, 2011, to be more forthcoming with them and law enforcement authorities.
“We know there is a person on this earth that knows what happened,” Robert Spierer told People magazine in an article published this week.
