UPDATE: Police in Indiana say the body they found in a woods on Tuesday is not that of missing Indiana University co-ed Lauren Spierer. They did not say who it was or release the results of an autopsy on the corpse.
EARLIER: COPS IN INDIANA are being tight-lipped on whether a body discovered in rural Jennings County could be that of missing co-ed Lauren Spierer. Emergency officials had to use ATVs and four-wheel drive vehicles to investigate, Jennings County Sheriff Steve Hoppock said in a news release. It appeared the body had been there for some time, he said.
State Police crime technicians were called to the scene, as was the Jennings County coroner’s office.
No identifying characteristics were released Tuesday. Hoppock said the investigation is ongoing, and more details would be released as they became available. The body has been taken to a hospital in Louisville, and an autopsy is scheduled for today. Bloomington cops say they have not been contacted
yet. Spierer, 20, vanished June 3 after a heavy night of partying. So far, an intense investigation has turned up little.
