yes I agree they are. But we're talking about feeling sorry for them. As far as it could be anyone's children, I can see that. and it seems like the Spierers understood that and just wanted Lauren. As time went on, they expressed their frustration and tried to explain how they felt, and it came out very clear, the agony and hurt. I've read about hardened street junkies who have called the police when their friend ods. It's been in our paper. I've also read about people driving ods to a hospital parking lot, or even any nearby parking lot, so that they would be found. This is more common. since they didn't cause the person's death, they don't want to get into trouble, because they could be investigated for murder if the person disappears after they were the last person with them. They want the body to be found! If they hid their friends body so well she hasn't been found yet, they should be smart enough to figure out an anonymous tip line.
