Volunteers, Equipment Sought For Landfill Search For Law School Grad From Laurel

MACON, Ga. (AP) — Family and friends of a slain law school graduate are trying to gather volunteers and donated equipment to do another search of a landfill in hopes of finding more of her remains.

The Telegraph of Macon reports that organizers are discussing a second search of the 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 murder in the death of Lauren Giddings, a 27-year-old from Laurel who was last seen June 25. Five days later, police discovered her torso wrapped in plastic in a garbage bin near her apartment building in Macon.

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