According to reports, Lauren Spierer's companion on the last night she was seen, has no memory his last moments with her. At some point, Corey Rossman, Spierer's companion Friday evening, was punched in the face after the two had returned to the Smallwood Plaza apartments.
In an interview, former Monroe County District Attorney Carl Salzmann who is representing Rossman, stated that at around 2:40 am Friday Rossman and Spierer were involved in a confrontation with another group of young people. At some point during the altercation Rossman was struck. It was at that point, according to Salzmann, that Rossman and Spierer left and returned to his apartment. Spierer was last scene leaving the apartment building at 4:30 am, heading back to her own apartment.
Salzmann went on to say that Rossman, who is from Sharon, Massachusetts, was not involved in Spierer's disappeance and that he was cooperating with the police. However, Salzman stated "there is a lot more to this," alluding to the conditions that lead up to the initial confrontation. Salzmann said he has provided additional information to the Bloomington Police.
