Dismembered Body Was Law Grad's; Investigation Continues

A dismembered body found near the apartment of a missing Mercer University law graduate has been identified as that of the young woman, 27-year-old Lauren Giddings, who served as president of the Federalist Society at the school.

The police investigation in Macon, Ga., is continuing, the Associated Press reports.

Meanwhile, Stephen McDaniel, Giddings’ law school classmate, remains in the Bibb County Jail. McDaniel was arrested last week and charged with burglarizing a different apartment in his and Giddings’ building two years ago, and he has been called a person of interest in Giddings’ homicide probe.
