A Bloomington detective wants to know if a southern Indiana man charged with killing two women is connected to the disappearance of IU student Lauren Spierer.

Listen:

The detective was asked to investigate the possible connection after the body of a missing New Albany woman was found buried in Clyde Gibson's backyard.

Investigators dug up 35 year-old Stephanie Kirk's body last Friday.  Gibson has not been charged in Kirk's death because the prosecutor is waiting for a detailed report from the coroner.  Initial findings suggest Kirk died from strangulation.

Gibson already murder charges for the death of his mother's friend, 75 year-old Christine Whitis, and Karen Hodella, 46, whose body was found along the Ohio River ten years ago.

Spierer vanished last June after a night out with her friends.
