By this time, Spierer and Wolff were dating. However, when Spierer, then 20, decided to go out and let her hair down after a difficult semester, Wolff decided to stay at home. Apparently, he spent the night of June 2, 2011, watching basketball, unaware of the drama that was about to unfold.
Meanwhile, Spierer had begun drinking with friends. At around 12:30 a.m. on June 3 she and her friend David Rohn were seen leaving her apartment. Afterwards, they made their way to the home of Jay Rosenbaum, where they continued the party.
While at Rosenbaum’s apartment, Spierer also met up with Cory Rossman, who lived next door. Later, she made her way to Kilroy’s Sports Bar, a popular nightspot in Bloomington. Although she was seen arriving at 1:46 a.m., security cameras spotted her leaving just 40 minutes later.
