Why was she at Kilroys if she is underage? Do they not have cameras in this establishment? Can they not interview some of the patrons from that evening?

why does it matter about the cameras and why does it matter that she was at kilroys. what matters is that she is someones daughter. what matters is where is the pervert that took her. how many other girls are unsafe in bloomington right now matters. granted, the issue of the kilroys establishment has been talked about in the news and she is only 20. i gathered that this is being investigated. and according to the news, patrons are being questioned. my heart and prayers go out to the family and the friends who are looking for her.

I think I've figured out what happened. It was a gang-rape and murder by 2 or 3 or more men. Rossman and his buddies saw her at the bar and saw how drunk she was and they took her. That's why her shoes and stuff were left at the bar. They walked her back to her apt and there...that's when on the security camera you can see all the guys talking to each other...that was the "altercation" but it wasn't an altercation. They were discussing what to do with her. So then they decided to take her over to their place and on the way, they picked up her in a car and left her purse and keys there on the road and she was never seen again. This all pieces everything together perfectly and makes sense of everything.

That's also why this Rossman guy has alibis...they aren't real alibis...it's those guys all covering for each other. They all decided to do it together and they think that since they all cover for each other that they can get away with it. I hope they lock those guys up.

Gas - I've commented before on your BS gang rape theory which you seem to want to promote in spite of camera evidence showing Lauren leaving with her acquaintance willingly and numerous statements in the media that he has cooperated with the police and submitted to searches of his property. I suggested you get your head out of the gutter and stop fixating on what is obviously your own fantasy of choice.

cooperating? He's got a lawyer dumbass and he conveniently doesn't remember that night. The police are obviously not going to name him as a prime suspect because if they do, they'll never get anything out of him. They aren't going to reveal the theory just yet until they've exhausted everything else. Typical woman. Only knows what she hears. You got to use your brain, dumbass. Oh wait, you don't have one. Obviously, you have no critical thinking skills.

It sure looks like a person wearing a white shirt and black pants in the bed of that truck picture.

So how's that gang rape theory working out for you "Gas" ?
Only knows what she hears????(your description of my comment). Well idiot, that's how police work is done - you know because you hear something...NOT BY DREAMING UP A FANTASY OF GANG RAPE ALL ON YOUR OWN. Now crawl back to the gutter where you belong. BTW - I've a post graduate education -so before you add another moronic comment like the last one, please enlighten us all about your own educational prowess. I'n sure it will be captivating.......

Went to Sofia University and graduated in 1996 with a Masters degree in Laser Physics. In 2002 I took the GRE Physics test, my result put me in the top 3% of all test takers all over the world.

In 2010 I graduated from the University of Chicago with a Ph.D. degree in Theoretical Physics. My studies there involved application of the General Theory of Relativity (Einsteinís theory of gravity) to Dark Energy, which is the most important problem in contemporary Cosmology.

I think I'm more qualified than you to make some educated guesses as to what happened.

Here's an interesting article. A woman claims to have seen Lauren at 3:38am with a man. She says he is not any of the men named so far.

Oh my God, the police are so stupid. They failed to realize that the white truck had only went passed the interesection once, not twice. They didn't look at the time stamps properly and realize that.

I am not a cop by any means but they should be doing some depth investigation of that guy she was with and the altercation that took place before hand. I bet he and the other frat guy had something to do with it and are just in hiding. They need to polygraph those guys in the fight and go from there.

no, there is a witness who says that a black guy was last seen with her and threw her up on his shoulders and left with her.

Not heard much about the video surveillance showing her walking north between 3:15 and 3:30am. Nor, does it look like we will hear much about it, as police have no plans on releasing it.
"Qualters said police also have no plans to release surveillance videos collected from apartment complexes and businesses in the area. He said the latest from those videos shows Spierer walking north of 10th Street between 3:15 and 3:30 a.m. the night she went missing, but he would not say whether she was alone or what else might have happened in the video.

Is it a black guy, or just a dark skinned guy?
This article says the bar manager described him as dark skinned.
http://tonygatto.wordpress.com/2011/06/16/new...
It also says that police had the bar manager come in for a second meeting at which time they drew up a sketch.
Guess they aren't going to release that to the public either.

The witness did not say "black".

Check your stats on who is more likely to hurt a woman... NOT black.

no, blacks commit about 10 times more crime than whites. Not sure where you get that crap. I don't care what race you are. You are wrong. The are also more black pedophiles per capita than whites. Actually blacks commit more crimes than whites across the board per capita.

Anyway, the witness say dark skinned man which usually means a black man.

This case is never going to be solved because the police involved. They probably even helped dispose of the body. A police informant was with Lauren Spierer that night and he was responsible for her death and now the police have an ugly situation on their hands that they are unable to do anything about. If they release the info that it was a police informant, not sure how that would go over, there could be riots....who knows. There course of action right now is to just pretend to be working hard on this case and bullsh*t the Spierer family for a few weeks and let it blow over and then they can back to the war on drugs....which is so much more important (/s).
