Longing For Lauren: Unanswered Questions, Plea For Information

Charlene Spierer published a second letter on her blog page today, speaking directly to those who have information about her daughter Lauren's disappearance.

It is a mother's cry for help. An impassioned plea to those who know what happened to her daughter. Come forward. Reveal the truth. Let family finally have answers.

of Edgemont wrote on her blog today that her family, after over a year, is still waiting and hoping for the truth. And she wrote directly to the suspect/suspects that are responsible for in Bloomington, Indiana, after a night out of partying with friends.

"It sickens me to write to you once again, but I have no choice," Charlene wrote.

The Edgemont family is currently waiting for results of This time, human remains were found in the White River, and the family will wait up to eight weeks to learn if the remains are those of their missing child.

"We wait along with other families of missing loved ones," Charlene wrote. "It could take as long as eight weeks. That’s 80,640 minutes of agony. We are waiting to find out if a skull found in the White River might be Lauren’s. It’s chilling to say the words. I find it incomprehensible that if by chance you are reading this, you know the answer already." 

The heartbroken mother of the now 21-year-old, Indiana University student expressed her grief and anger to the suspect/suspects.

"We continue to wait for the results from the Marion County coroner’s office," she wrote. "You may or may not be a parent. Somehow I doubt that you are a parent. I guarantee you have no idea what it’s like, waiting to find out if the remains recovered from any number of places are those of your child. I hope I am making you uncomfortable. I hope you have as many sleepless nights as I have. I hope that some day, your parents, your siblings, your friends will all be in a courtroom when your true self is revealed, the self which was born on June 3, 2011 when you took Lauren from us."

Charlene goes on to question the suspect/suspects, wondering if she has met him/her, does he think about what he did, does he care?

She writes about five men who hired attorneys after Lauren's disappearance and how they have refused to cooperate with Bloomington Police. The five, according to Charlene, refused polygraph tests, too.

"No matter what happened on June 3, 2011, the fact that Lauren seemingly vanished into thin air is undeniable and for that you are responsible," the mother blogged. "I trust that Lauren will have her day and justice will be served. Until that time, we remain steadfast in our search for answers which will lead us to Lauren."

Lauren Spierer was last seen on 11th Street and College Avenue in Bloomington, IN, on June 3, 2011. Lauren is 4'11" tall, 95 pounds, with blonde hair, blue eyes, and last seen wearing black pants and a white tank top with a white top.
