Coroner: Body found in IN creek not missing Edgemont student
The Marion County coroner confirmed today that a body found floating in an Indiana creek is not missing Edgemont college student Lauren Spierer.
An autopsy was performed today and while an official identity hasn't been established, the coroner said the Indiana University student's dental records are not a match. Earlier reports identifying the body as an elderly woman who went missing around the same time as Spierer were also found to be inaccurate.
The badly decomposed body was determined to be that of a young African-American woman. Her body was found lodged in debris in Fall Creek, which is about 60 miles from Bloomington, where Spierer was last seen on June 3 after a night of partying.
Many Scarsdale residents say they're relieved the body is not Spierer and are still hoping she'll be found alive. Spierer's parents say they will stay in Indiana until they find their daughter.
