I'm sure they've been hounded by reporters but at the end of the day a young lady is missing, and I just think that shows a lack of impulse control. It would be one thing to tear out of there in a hurry, but the way he drove towards the reporters is just disturbing.

I don't get it. I have American's Most Wanted on right now but it is showing a case from Los Angeles CA. Maybe Lauren's case will be on the 2nd half of the show?

The segment just completed. It was only approximately 3 minutes in length...

This is a 2nd post I've seen regarding ethnoreligious implication. Could someone please explain to me what being "Jewish" has to do with this case? Have I missed something?

I knew it would be short...what can they really say? They aren't asking America to look out for a suspect, and they can only show her picture and tell where she was last seen...

I know college kids get used to their surroundings and walking everywhere; but familiar or not, nothing could get me to walk in an alley surrounded with bushes on each side, not very lit, by myself at 4:15.
Not sure if this link has been posted...

The Jewish community here at IU is HUGE. Over 10% of the student population is Jewish. They commonly hang out in close knit cliques and many live in the Smallwood area. Not to stereotype, but the Jewish population in the downtown area of Bloomington is notorious for partying--drinking, smoking pot, popping pills, snorting coke, etc. They're also often from the East Coast and have known each other for years because of Jewish camps and whatnot. Don't get me wrong, many are great students and members of the community. Also, there is an off-campus Jewish fraternity...many of its members live in the Smallwood area. I'm almost positive that JW is in that fraternity and JR may be a member (based on mutual friends and photos on facebook). I know that MB and CR are NOT members of the frat. Not sure if this helps any, but it kinda puts perspective on the social scene of LS's group of friends.

I haven't heard anyone come out and say that Lauren would never have walked alone at 4am...so perhaps no one was surprised by her wanting to do so, if she did. Usually parents and friends would be saying that there would be no way she would do that.

It's one of the top "party schools." It appears to be not uncommon for the students to walk all hours of the night to and from bars.

It was a very short segment. Kind of disappointing. No new info at all.

Yeah, not much to say @ this point...

FYI - I did not mean to come across as critical of the length. I was simply letting the other poster know that it was over.

I know, I think some may be expecting an entire show, or half the show, dedicated to this case, but when they do a segment on a missing person, it is always very brief.

Is Lauren's FB page searchable?? I haven't been able to find her.

I can no longer find Corey Rossman and Jesse Wolff either. I see above that Jesse changed his name. That is weird to me. It was private anyway. All you could see was his friends and some info, you couldn't see his wall.

I've never found Jay Rosenbaum.

I think just in the last few minutes, that JW facebook, under the different name, is now gone - or changed again.

I think he/she is talking about the next day search done by family, locals and friends. They went straight to the lakes.

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 news articles, but no more than 10% of the original article. And always provide a link.

Here are a couple of threads that contain helpful user information. There are others posted in the sticky section of the forums.

I found him. If you type in Jesse and then change the education search to Indiana University he will come up. Same avatar as before.

He was interviewed a few days back by the press. He was in a video. He was saying how he has seen her before walking by his building which is where CR lives. I am very sure he has nothing to do with this case. The press qas trying to get quotes from residents.

Ok so CR's ATTY who has had no issue being open with the media since his first having been retained(which I personally feel is refreshing as with so many cases NO one, even loose lipped Attys have a blip to say..).. So I do like that he seems to be quite open with the media.. As well as his being the former DA makes me feel as tho his word isn't as useless as a grain of salt(IMO holds a tad bit more weight..lol.. But not much..lol)

With him today making the statement thT he is in contact with MB&JR's Attys and when asked if felt any of the three were in any way involved he said, "Absolutely NOT"..

He nor his client in anyway benefit by his stating this so might it be he actually believes this to be the case.. And he does know a helluva alot more about this case thN we do.

Just something I'd been thinking about...

As she was last seen around 4:00 am Saturday, surveillance footage of Spierer's apartment building show her arguing with what police refer to as "several" men. Now why hasn't this been reported on more greatly?
Who spirited this girl away?

My boyfriend, a former frat brother, completely disagreed with my theory. He told me it's a "man code" to wait until the next day to tell your friend if his girlfriend is cheating on him (or suspecting such). That way cooler heads prevail. He seemed fairly confident that most of the guys he knows would agree.

Personally, I'd think to the contrary, but hey, I'm not a guy!
I agree, and I am a guy. The Rossman character (who already has a history of being a belligerent drunk) just happens to lose his memory on the most inconvenient night of his life. Right. Then in an interview says "I hope they find her soon" while he's looking down, as if he's thinking "I hope they don't find her at all." She probably walked home with him because she felt bad that her boyfriend's buddies gave him what he had coming to him. Then they supposedly asked her to stay "because it was so late..." Really? 4:00am is so much different than 3:10am? They thought it was TOO LATE for her to walk home such a short distance, but then let her go by herself? I think she tried to unsuccessfully leave Beth's and Rossman's apartment building...

"I'm not going to talk about the altercation except to restate Lauren was not involved," he said repeatedly.


I think people saw Rossman get into an argument/fight and assumed it was her...it doesn't seem conceivable that her boyfriend's friends would do anything to harm her, especially from the reports I've heard about their relationship. From all accounts I've read - which is just about all of them - Wolff was nowhere around the area.

If you put his regular name in the search and search for that, his full name doesn't come up. So do that. Then over to the left, click on People, then a box at the top with "Location" will pop up. Drop that menu down, change to education, put Indiana university. Then search just the name Jesse.
