    I thought of drugs instantly when someone said Lauren wanted to party. I do not think this hurts her, or her friends characters. This is something many people do, although choice of drug may differ.
    I also wonder if she did get any type of drug beyond alcohol, how she might behave. I know when I've had too many to drink, I'm more friendly, affectionate, etc. This would be my main concern. She may also have OD'd on drugs or alcohol. She's tiny, she may have been too intoxicated to walk home alone and be in her right mind.
    I've had many nights in Bloomington where I was so drunk that I found myself in strangers apartments (friends or friends). Luckily my friends never left my side. But, if they had, Lord knows where I could have ended up.
    Because I don't think her potential use of drugs is bad, I think it would give insight into her frame of mind. Was she sober by the time she walked home? Was it possible she decided to go to another friends house? Maybe she decided to go look for her phone...

    I'm a bit frustrated as this hits a little close to home and a little too close to how I was in school....

    Welcome to Wensleuths iaNJsc!

    Try searching on post from Btown... he had a few good maps in thread #2. I'm not sure if he had those things marked or not.

    More info. Supposedly before leaving JR's apartment, LS tried to phone someone to see if he knew where her phone was. Since the bar would have been closed, I do not believe she would have tried to go back there. I must say a lot of these students LS was hanging with appear to be involved in public intoxication cases.
    "Chapman, who represented Rohn in a prior public intoxication case and spoke with him in recent days about his interactions with Spierer, would only say that that "somebody" called Rohn at 4:15 a.m. and that "he didn't answer his phone because he was in bed.""

    I apologize if this has already been posted - just jumped on and haven't caught up with the newest postings.....Creole

    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Police for the first time Monday acknowledged that they have received information that college student Lauren Spierer may have overdosed on cocaine and that the student or students who were with her panicked and disposed of her body.

    Bloomington police Capt. Joe Qualters, asked by a reporter about these "rumors" during a morning news conference, replied: "Have we heard information along those lines? Absolutely."
    But he said detectives had not ruled that possibility, or any other, in or out in their investigation of the missing student.

    If LS had called DR and left a message, that would be so helpful in pinning down a last verifiable time she was known to be alive. Just a call though from JR's apt/cellphone though doesn't mean she actually made the call herself. I would like to think she did, but IDK.

    I have a question hopefully someone with more experience would be able to answer from a forensics standpoint. Since LE has apparently searched CRs vehicle, and had CR and MB submit their DNA, couldn't that simply be to identify what DNA was found in the vehicle. Like, they want to establish their DNA from other DNA possibly found there...like hair or something? Not necessarily that they did anything or are suspected of it, just to establish theirs from other's? TIA.

    At least from reading that article, I don't get the impression she left a message.
    So, yes, it would be just a phone call from JR's phone (I presume so since she wouldn't have had her cell phone with her).

    Still unfortunately doesn't give any clear cut answers. If somebody else could verify that she actually left JR's apartment, that would be most helpful to trying to figure this out.

    Should we assume that DK is also one of the 10 poi's?

    I think it is interesting that DR is not facebook friends with JR, CR, or MB. He is friends with LS. Maybe DR is the one who knows the most about why LS decided to hang out with the other three that night.

    At this stage, they will often ask for DNA to see who will and who will not comply.
