Body found in creek not Spierer, Heard

July 5, 2011

The Marion County Coroner's office said Tuesday that a woman's body found floating in Fall Creek Sunday night is not Indiana University student Lauren Spierer, 20, or Noblesville grandmother Dorothy Heard, 74. Both have been missing for weeks. The body was badly decomposed and investigators on the scene were not able to determine the woman’s identity, age or race. Police say there are other missing-person cases that could hinge on the autopsy findings.
