The parents of Lauren Spierer released a statement to the supposed "suspect(s)" responsible for her disappearance. Pleading for a "small miracle" the letter was released on New Year's on the website set up and dedicated to finding out what happened to the missing 20-year-old fashion student.
Tuesday was the eight month anniversary of the disappearance of Lauren Spierer. On June 3, 2011, the Indiana University student was allegedly last seen wandering home barefooted, drunk and alone. She was never seen or heard from again. Robert and Charlene Spierer have adamantly stuck to the investigation and have even hired their own private investigator in hopes of getting to the bottom of this heartbreaking ordeal.
"We hope that YOU, the person who took Lauren, will finally have the courage to end this nightmare for our family," read the letter from the missing woman's parents.
Lauren's parents have been quite vocal since she vanished, and have released several notes and statements to the phantom suspect(s) involved in her disappearance. So far, as the eighth month is here, these pleas have proven unsuccessful. It's shaping up to be a cold case, as the one-year anniversary is just around the corner.
Where is Lauren Spierer?
The Bloomington Police need to get on the ball with this. It seems that there are enough clues in this case for them to at least have persons of interest, or at least one suspect who might be responsible for some kind of wrongdoing. This blog post shows some pretty disturbing images that have been enhanced that could actually hold a piece of the puzzle in this disturbing missing persons case.
In the meantime, it's still being speculated that Lauren could be the victim of a serial predator. That's not too hard to believe considering she hasn't yet been found and several other women have disappeared in a six to seven hour radius over the past eight months and prior. It's even been speculated that the disappearance of the Indiana fashion student could be connected to the disappearance of 21-year-old nursing student Holly Bobo.
However, knowing how rural the environment is surrounding Holly Bobo and her residence, it would take someone who has a familiarity with the area to pull off such a feat. Still, these cases could be connected -- but police have refused to acknowledge that very small possibility.
