Coroner: Body Found In Fall Creek Not Missing IU Student Lauren Spierer

INDIANAPOLIS -- A woman's body found in Fall Creek on Sunday is likely not that of missing Indiana University student Lauren Spierer, the Marion County coroner said Tuesday. The badly decomposed body was found in the river along the 6500 block E. Fall Creek Pkwy N. Drive, prompting speculation it could be connected to the case of the missing 20-year-old.

Coroner Frank Lloyd Jr. told 6News' Stacia Matthews that based on a preliminary autopsy, the woman found in the creek was black, while Spierer is white. "Again, this is preliminary. We've only done an external examination," he said.

The coroner's determination also eliminates the possibility that the body found is that of Dorothy Heard, 74, who was last seen in Noblesville June 13. To identify the body found Sunday, the coroner's office will work with other agencies to get dental records and analyze DNA samples, which could take up to three months.

Sunday marked one month since Spierer was last seen in the early morning hours of June 3, as she walked toward her Smallwood Plaza apartment.

Let’s get real here, Lauren Spierer is very, very young looking, she is 20 years old with blond hair and blue eyes, but at 4′ 11″ tall and 98 lbs she looks like a 13 year old or even younger and fits the profile of a target for a sex offender who just might be working in the the neighborhood. 

Lauren Spierer was living at the SMALLWODD PLAZA APARTMENTS 455 N. COLLEGE AVE, Bloomington IN 47404, there are two troubled ex-con sex offenders working just across the street at the Waffle House 530 N COLLEGE AVE.
