On June 3, 2011, 20-year-old Indi­ana Uni­ver­si­ty stu­dent Lau­ren Spier­er van­ished with­out a trace after a night out with friends. 

The unsolved case of Lau­ren Spier­er has haunt­ed her fam­i­ly and the Bloom­ing­ton com­mu­ni­ty for over a decade, rid­dled with the­o­ries and unan­swered questions.

A new book, “Col­lege Girl, Miss­ing: The True Sto­ry of How a Young Woman Dis­ap­peared in Plain Sight,” by reporter Shawn Cohen, sheds new light on the mystery. 

Cohen metic­u­lous­ly inves­ti­gates the case, inter­view­ing key play­ers, chas­ing down leads, and uncov­er­ing fresh details about Lau­ren’s final hours.

The Last Seen Alive and Conflicting Accounts

Three male friends, Corey Ross­man, Jay Rosen­baum, and Mike Beth, were the last to see Lau­ren alive. Named per­sons of inter­est ear­ly on, they remained tight-lipped and hired lawyers, hin­der­ing the investigation. 

Cohen tracks down these men, now in their 30s, for new infor­ma­tion about the night Lau­ren dis­ap­peared. He also inter­views Lau­ren’s then-boyfriend, Jesse Wolff, who claims he was asleep when she van­ished but demand­ed a sig­nif­i­cant sum to be includ­ed in the book.

New Evidence and Lingering Questions

“Col­lege Girl, Miss­ing” unveils pre­vi­ous­ly unre­leased details, includ­ing video evi­dence show­ing Ross­man mak­ing phone calls while Lau­ren was inca­pac­i­tat­ed on a curb. The book explores the rival­ry between Wolff and Ross­man, both inter­est­ed in Lau­ren despite her rela­tion­ship with Wolff.

Did Lauren Die with Her Friends or Was She Abducted?

The book rais­es crit­i­cal ques­tions: Did Lau­ren die in her friends’ care and was her body dis­posed of? Or was she abduct­ed from the street? Was she tru­ly alone, or are her friends with­hold­ing information?

A Family’s Search for Answers

Lau­ren’s par­ents, Char­lene and Robert Spier­er, have relent­less­ly searched for answers. They grant­ed Cohen access to their per­son­al case files, includ­ing pri­vate inves­ti­ga­tor reports, phone records, inter­views, and poly­graph tests.

“They know Lau­ren is gone,” writes Cohen. “What they crave, what they need, is to know what hap­pened to her.”
