    This is not far from where I live and I have never heard anything about Aria Spradling or a naked woman being pulled into a van!

    I guess investigators still aren't sure whether the clothing found at the scene of the incident on Germantown Pike belong to Spradling, but they seem to believe it's hers. Apparently, there was also hair found at that scene believed to be Spradling's.

    If there were witnesses to that incident, didn't they get the license plate number of that van???

    Hey all,

    Just to clarify a few things (I'm a local)... the young woman who disappeared apparently lived in a small town about 35 minutes' drive west of Dayton called Eaton. This is where I live also. It is a rural, classic "small town" community, with two other small towns and lots of country road/undeveloped area in between there and the city.

    She worked at the Harem, which is north of Dayton and at least 25-30 minutes northeast of Eaton. Germantown Pike -- where the naked woman was seen running before being pulled into a minivan -- on the other hand, is just barely southwest of downtown Dayton, not in Eaton, as ambiguous wording in some of the articles seems to indicate.

    I don't know if that clothing was ever conclusively tied to Aria or not, but it seems odd to me that she would have been running around that area, as it's not especially close to either Eaton or the Harem, and it's not really on the way between the two either. I'm inclined to think that was an unrelated incident, absent more compelling evidence.

    I didn't know Aria, but I feel a connection to the case, being as how she's from my hometown and all. I wish it had gotten more play in the media, but I never even heard that she was missing until her body was found in Vandalia. (Which is actually quite close to the Harem, another thing that makes me think the Germantown Pike incident is unrelated).

    Anyone have any more information about this? I can't find anything substantive about it online.

    We're about 2 weeks out from the 1-year anniversary of the discovery of Aria's remains.

    Never noticed this little detail before. Wonder why her mom waited more than two weeks to report her missing.

    TB I'm local too, also have mutual friends of the family.

    It wasn't terribly unusual for Aria to disappear for short periods of time. If I recall correctly she even told her mom she would be back in a few days, leaving her young daughter in her care. Aria had an addiction at some point, and RUMOR may have been doing some things to support it that could have put her in danger. Again, IIRC M did approach police early on but they were hesitant to take her seriously as there was no evidence that she didn't leave of her own volition. I believe M had to push the fact that Aria had warrants to get the police to activley involved.

    Autopsy report was inconclusive although morphine and cocaine were found in her body. Family firmly believes she was targeted.

    Maggie,

    Just now seeing this after many months away.

    Why does the family believe so strongly that Aria was murdered? Could she have simply overdosed, then been left in the park by friends (acquaintances, a customer or coworker, etc.) in order to avoid being implicated? Was the hair and clothing allegedly found after the incident on Germantown Pk ever connected to Aria? That never made sense to me -- why abduct someone up near Vandalia, bring her all the way down to the boonies south of downtown, then take her back up north again in order to hide the body?

    Anyway, any info you have would be much appreciated, as of course info about Aria is practically nonexistent online. Thanks again for the reply!
