Skeletal Remains Do Not Belong To Lauren Spierer

DNA test shows bones found in Illinois not those of missing IU student


The search goes on for missing IU student Lauren Spierer.


Those who have been following the case wondered if there would finally be a conclusion after some skeletal remains were found in Eastern Illinois near the town of Newton almost one month ago. But the Jasper County, Illinois Coroner told the Herald-Times a DNA test shows the bones belong to an unknown man and are definitely not those of the missing 20-year-old.

Spierer has been missing since a night out with friends June 3rd, 2011. There have been persons of interest, but thus far, no suspects in the case.
