Missing Jewish student might have been found dead.
Attention in the case of missing Indiana University sophomore Lauren Spierer turned today to Indianapolis, where the Metropolitan Police Department said it has recovered a woman's decomposed body from Fall Creek on the north east side of Indianapolis.
Bloomington Police Lt. William Parker said in a statement that investigators are in contact with Indianapolis police, but that there is not enough information to determine the identity or even a basic description of the body. "A forensic examination is pending which hopefully will provide more information," Parker's statement says.
Spierer, 20, was last seen about 4:30 a.m. June 3 walking alone toward her downtown Bloomington apartment building after a night of partying with friends. Last week police called off the general searches for the Greenburgh, N.Y., native.
