Agnes Scott alum's family still searching for remains

MACON, Ga. -- Nearly two months after Lauren Giddings' disappearance, the 27-year-old's family and friends are hoping to recover the rest of her remains.

Giddings was last seen alive on June 25. Five days later, police discovered the Agnes Scott and Mercer law school grad's torso wrapped in plastic in a garbage bin near her apartment building in Macon.

Now loved ones are trying to gather volunteers and donated equipment to find the rest of her. The Telegraph of Macon reports that organizers are discussing a second search of a landfill, but it could cost $50,000 or more per day. Authorities say a backhoe and some off-road trucks would be needed, along with workers to operate the equipment.

Stephen Mark McDaniel is charged with Giddings' murder. The 25-year-old from Lilburn was her neighbor and former law school classmate.

McDaniel's attorney, Floyd Buford, has said his client is innocent.
