    Police say she was on her way to her apartment building at Smallwood, 8th and College. Spierer never arrived at her apartment and video footage does not show her entering the building. She was reportedly wearing a white tank top with a loose, light-colored button shirt over it and black full length stretch pants. She was not wearing shoes.

    According to Bloomington Police Lieutenant Bill Parker, Spierer was walking home from a friend’s house a few blocks away. He says Spierer and her friends had been partying but her friends felt it had been several hours since their last drink and she would be fine to walk home on her own.

    Lt. Parker says Bloomington Police have Spierers cell phone, which she had left at a different friend’s house earlier in the evening. The phone has yet to provide any leads and Parker says they are not releasing the address of where the cell phone was found.

    I don't think the cases are connected in any way

    Why walk home by yourself at 4:30 in the morning? Did someone offer her a ride home and she declined?

    I just don't understand why young women put themselves in such dangerous situations.

    I don't think this is going to have a happy ending...... unless she crashed at some other friend's place. :(

    She's teeny tiny (4'11) Same Height as me. It would be very easy for someone to pick her up and put her in their car. :( she's such a cute girl.

    I really wish we knew more about her friends and if anyone offered her a ride home. According to her friends, it does not seem like she was intoxicated.

    I wonder if someone accidentally hit her with their car and put her in the trunk and took off because they did not want to get in trouble.

    That's what supposedly happened with Erica Baker.

    According to one article I read, her friends though it was ok for Lauren to walk home by herself at 4:30 in the morning. WTH?????

    IIRC, friends at the party said they had not drank in a few hours so they thought she was fine to walk home. Her cell phone was at another location, not the one she left to walk from. So no shoes, no cell phone and video cameras show she did not make it to her apartment building.

    The detail below is new, or at least I have not seen it in any other news stories.

    Still hoping for a good outcome for Lauren.

    I feel there is foul play involved. I wonder if they have checked all the local hospitals, homeless shelters etc. for any trace of Lauren.

    Quoting what was said in the news story not my personal opinion. Young people, as we see over and over here at WS, sometimes don't think about personal safety. I'm sure her friends feel horrible and are playing the "if only" tape in their heads. I would never judge them.

    I wonder if she's ever walked home in the early morning hours or if this is her first time.

    It would, but according to the article, according to her friends, it had been several hours since anybody drank anything.

    I could be wrong, but I don't think she was intoxicated

    keep in mind you had underage drinking. can't speak for the whole crowd but certainly Lauren was underage. always expect those in attendance to minimize the degree of intoxication for many reasons.
