Expert: Parents must work to keep Lauren Spierer probe going
A local expert in missing-persons cases says the key to finding an Indiana University student from Edgemont is her parents.
"They can count on the police all they want, but it's really up to the parents to keep this case going," says Gil Alba, a private investigator.
Police say after a night of partying with friends from Indiana University last month, Lauren Spierer visited an apartment building just three blocks from her own off-campus home.
One friend, Corey Rossman, claims he was punched in the face and can't remember what happened to Spierer, while another friend, Jay Rosenbaum, allegedly watched Spierer leave his apartment.
Alba says someone is not telling the truth.
"You have one individual that she went to the room with, he's the one who saw her last, saw her leave, I'm not even sure if that's true," he says.
