Jay, obviously, a terribly sad night for you and for all your friends at Auburn. Tell me — tell me, when was the last time you spoke to Lauren?
JAY SEYFRIED, FRIEND OF MURDERED STUDENT: The last time I spoke to her in person was over the winter break, but we had been talking on line through Facebook up until — I guess the last I'd from her was March 1.
VAN SUSTEREN: Which was just four or five days — four days ago, or five days ago. And anything unusual going on in her life that you know about?
SEYFRIED: Nothing I had known of. We were simply talking about meeting up because we hadn't seen each other at all this semester. A bunch of our friends from high school all go to school year. Some of them are fraternity brothers. So we, like, try and meet up with her fairly regularly to just catch up and she how she's doing. And we had been planning to do so either last weekend or this upcoming weekend, and that's what our conversation was about. And I hadn't heard anything at all indicating any sort of troubles going on with her.
VAN SUSTEREN: All right. Now, you know her boyfriend very well, as well, because he also went to high school with you. What do you know about a phone call that he had from her last night?
SEYFRIED: About the phone call, we actually — a little bit of misinformation. I just recently discovered it was not her boyfriend who talked to her on the phone with the disturbing phone call. It was — from what I hear, it was the person she was supposed to be delivering the book to. His name is Michael. He's another friend of ours, and he was the one who apparently got the phone call. I don't know too many details about it. This has just been through the grapevine from the friends.
VAN SUSTEREN: Do you know what time she left her boyfriend's apartment?
SEYFRIED: I'm not certain about that. I haven't heard that information. My friends and I have been assuming that it was pretty recent, right before she was reported missing and her car was found. I don't know it was much before then.
VAN SUSTEREN: If you were going from her boyfriend's apartment to where she was to deliver the book, would you do that by walking or driving, likely?
SEYFRIED: She probably would have driven. Her boyfriend's apartment — I'm not certain where he lives, but I know the person who's book she was delivering lives right down the street from me, and I don't know that would have been in walking distance.
VAN SUSTEREN: Any reason anyone would want to harm her that you know about?
SEYFRIED: Absolutely none whatsoever. Lauren was one of the sweetest girls I ever met, and I didn't know anybody who had a single bad thing bad to say about her.
VAN SUSTEREN: And in terms of anything, you know, that she — her boyfriend, any problems with her boyfriend at all?
SEYFRIED: Her boyfriend is also a good friend of mine. I played baseball with him in high school. I haven't been able to get in touch with him. From what I hear, he's back in Atlanta right now with Lauren's family and his family. I'm am not sure how he's doing. I'd like to talk to him whenever he feels like he can do so. I know my mother spoke to his this morning, and that's all I really know about him right now.
VAN SUSTEREN: Jay, thank you.
