“Lauren’s disappearance was a defining factor in my college experience and something I have continued to think about,” said Breslin. “When listening to hours of other true crime podcasts it always struck me why more hasn’t been done on her and how we still have no idea what happened to her that night. I certainly do not have all the answers. In fact, there is so much more I wish I knew. But what I do have is a story and memory of what it was like to attend Indiana University at this time with rumors and theories constantly being discussed. I hope that telling my story will continue to keep her story alive and help bring her family justice.”
