Tuesday, April 28, 2015

It is a 9 min walk from where Indiana University student Lauren Spierer was last seen to where Indiana University student Hanna Wilson was last seen, see map above. Bloomington Police say the arrest of a man for the murder of an Indiana University student Hannah Wilson has prompted media inquiries and speculation from the general public about his possible involvement in the Lauren Spierer case being investigated by the Bloomington Police Department. Capt. Joe Qualters said in an email that “investigation has already begun.”

Thursday April 23rd, 2015, Indiana University student Hannah Wilson, 22 years old, went missing around midnight, she had been on her way to Kilroy’s Bar in Bloomington the same place Lauren Spierer was at before she went missing June 3rd 2011, Hannah instead went home to her apartment in the 500 block of East 8th Street Bloomington IN.

Friday June 3rd 2011 at 4:30am, Indiana University student Lauren Spierer went missing from around the 500 block of N. College Ave just down from East 10th Street Bloomington IN. Lauren Spierer lived in the 400 block of N. College Ave she had been at Kilroy’s Bar in Bloomington earlier. Lauren Spierer has long blond hair, she is 4′11″ tall and 95 lbs, 21 years old.

Daniel Messel is facing murder charges. Daniel Messel’s arrest has provided BPD detectives with an avenue of investigation into Lauren Spierer’s disappearance that will be “diligently pursued.” Messel was formally charged Monday in the murder of IU senior Hannah Wilson. “Detectives provided assistance in the death investigation of Hannah Wilson, but an effort will be made to confer in more detail with Indiana State Police detectives to determine what, if any, similarities might exist in the two cases that may have not been released to the public,” Qualters said in the press release.

Daniel Messel has a long criminal record, including a conviction in 1996 on battery with a deadly weapon and battery causing serious bodily injury charges, Indiana court records show. He was sentenced to eight years in prison on one charge and six years suspended on the other, but only served 3 years time. Released in 1999, he was charged again in 2007 with battery but pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor disorderly conduct. He was released after paying $210 in court costs. How many more unsolved murders of young college age females are there?

Daniel Messel is a psychopath. Court records obtained by the Call 6 Investigators show Hannah Wilson’s murder suspect, Daniel Messel, 49, has an extensive criminal history of violence dating as far back as at least 1986. Call 6 Investigator Kara Kenney spent hours digging through his old case files in Monroe County on Monday, which included hundreds of pages of court records. In 1996, Messel was sentenced to prison time for battery with a deadly weapon after prosecutors say he beat Debbie and Wayne Thompson of Bloomington, breaking Debbie’s nose and causing Wayne to lose part of his ear. “Mr. Messel then returned again and began striking Debbie Thompson in the head with a 2 x 4 causing a severe laceration to her head which severed an artery on her scalp,” read a probable cause from 1995 from the Thompson case.He served just over three years in prison, from June 1996 to November 1999, according to the Indiana Department of Correction, and was under court supervision an additional six years. In 2006, Messel was charged with battery, but in 2007, he pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct after prosecutors say he beat his co-worker at Baxter Pharmaceutical, Brady Christian, in the face. As part of a plea agreement, Messel served no jail or prison time for that incident. Messel is currently employed at Fine Print printing 125 S Westplex Ave, Bloomington, IN.
