The parents of Lauren Spierer have produced a potential clue in the disappearance of the missing Bloomington coed. A turquoise and silver-colored ring the woman may have been wearing the night she vanished could be anywhere. It's not uncommon for jewelry worn by victims of crime to wind up in pawn shops, flea markets, or on the persons of random people, so Charlene and Rob Spierer are hoping someone may have seen this ring.
Have you seen this ring? The ring pictured is one that is similar to the ring they believe Lauren Spierer was wearing in the early morning hours of June 3, 2011Â—when she vanished without a trace. If you've seen a ring similar to this and feel that it may be connected to this case, it's important to get into contact with Bloomington, Indiana, police. While it's possible that many people have rings like this, it's still a good clue on which to investigate.
Lauren vanished in June of 2011 after a night of partying with friends. She was allegedly last seen walking barefoot while heavily intoxicated, only to vanish into the early morning hours. She hasn't been seen since, and the young men who were last in her company have all lawyered up, behaving suspiciously. One of them even claims to have short-term amnesia surrounding the last hours the young woman was seen. Maybe someone who knows these young men may have seen this ring?
