FBI raid of home connected to Spierer


Source: Home raid related to Spierer case

MARTINSVILLE — A Martinsville home connected to a man suspected of flashing himself to numerous women was searched in an FBI raid Thursday.

The search, an attorney for a suspect confirmed, was in connection to the 2011 disappearance of Indiana University student Lauren Spierer.

The FBI and other police agencies converged on the home in the 2900 block of Old Morgantown Road on Thursday morning. Investigators sifted dirt removed from a barn near the property after cadaver dogs finished their work.

Investigators towed a white truck from the property. The truck could be connected to 35-year-old Justin Wagers. Wagers, who is accused of exposing himself to women, lived at the house with his mother and stepfather until his arrest last August.

Wagers was arrested for exposing his genitals to a woman at a Circle K gas station near Bluff and County Line roads in Johnson County.

Police also learned Wagers was a possible suspect in another flashing incident in Morgan County. He has been in the Johnson County jail since August.
