Police questioning persons of interest in missing student case

Police say that while they have no main suspects, they are questioning several persons of interest in the disappearance of Edgemont-native Lauren Spierer, who went missing last week while at school.

Spierer, a 20-year-old sophomore at Indiana University, was last seen on June 3, walking back to her apartment after a night at Kilroy's Sports Bar, where friends say she had been drinking.

One of 10 people being questioned is Cory Rossman, a 21-year-old fellow student of Spierer's, who officials say was the last person to see her alive. Police are now reportedly requesting a DNA sample from Rossman and say that surveillance video shows him and Spierer leaving her apartment, where he was allegedly assaulted by a group of students.

Officials with the Smallwood apartment complex, where Spierer lives, have also turned over more than 190 pages of data detailing who came in and out of the building in the hours before her disappearance.

Rossman's attorney says his client doesn't remember what happened after the two left the bar, as he was punched in the head and sustained some memory loss. He added Rossman is cooperating with police, who have searched his car, credit card records, and cell phone.

Police are also speaking to Spierer's boyfriend, Jesse Wolff, of Port Washington, N.Y., who they say is being cooperative.

The search is expected to continue over the weekend, and Spierer's family has offered a $100,000 reward for any information leading to her safe return.
