The complaint, initiated by the missing IU student’s parents, alleges new facts in the case and contradicts some previously reported information.
The Spierers’ lawsuit contradicts some information included in IM’s report from June 2011, printed one year after Lauren went missing.
Lauren Spierer's parents, Robert and Charlene, recently spoke with People magazine to reveal the stark, harsh reality of living without their daughter. What seems like minutiae to some, small things, will bring back the pain of losing their daughter—so much so that, according to People, Spierer’s boxes from her time at college remain unpacked. Today, January 17, 2013, is significant for them: It marks the day on which Spierer either hopefully celebrates her 22nd birthday—somewhere, somehow—or would have celebrated the occasion.
