Lauren Giddings was brutally murdered and dismembered before her decapitated torso was discovered outside of her Macon, GA apartment. Although a suspect is already in custody and several months have passed, the search for her parts continues.
In particular, the family members of murdered Mercer University Law graduate Lauren Giddings wants detectives to search local farmlands for the dismembered bits and pieces. At this point, is it really necessary? It's been since midsummer and any parts that are left, if there are any that can be found, would be so badly decomposed that investigators wouldn't really be able to do adequate tests on them. There couldn't be a cause of death pinpointed from the finds that couldn't have already been found on the woman's torso.
Did Stephen McDaniel kill and dismember Lauren Giddings?
The amount of evidence against the slain woman's classmate and neighbor is astounding. It also doesn't help his case that he's had a history of making comments about "getting away with murder." If he isn't found guilty of murdering Lauren Giddings, at the least he could face prison time for child pornography, as police found it in his possession during a search of his apartment for evidence. They also found that he was in possession of the very hacksaw that was used to dismember Giddings.
