INDIANAPOLIS - A source stepped forward on Thursday to contradict a story from one of the last people to see Lauren Spierer, a missing Indiana University student, on the morning of her disappearance.
Attorney Carl Salzmann, who represents Corey Rossman, said Spierer helped his client walk home on the morning of June 3 after he was punched in the face and suffered memory loss.
A source told a news station in Indianapolis video from that evening shows she would have been too incapacitated to help someone else walk home because she could barely stand on her own.
The source said, “She was really drunk. She stumbled out of the elevator, slammed against this wall and one of the guys carried her out of Smallwood (Plaza).”
Police have not publicized the content of the video, saying only that it shows Spierer and an acquaintance entering the apartment building around 2:30 a.m. and leaving about 15 minutes later.
Robert and Charlene Spierer, still hold hope that she will be found.
Charlene Spierer released a letter detailing her anguish and resolve to keep searching.
"It's as if our lives before June 3rd never happened. We are suspended in time," she wrote. "I cannot imagine doing anything other than searching for Lauren until the time we find her and can take her home with us.”
