Records indicate that Daniel Edward Messel, DOB Aug 7th, 1965, age 55, has been convicted of one murder, one rape and one attempted rape, how many other unsolved cases are there near the IU campus that could have originated at Kilroy's Sports Bar? For Daniel Messel, the murder conviction of Hannah Wilson ads to decades of violent behavior frequently against women that stretches back into the 1980s and landed Messel in county jail and state prison.ZONE OF DANGER: Daniel Messel demonstrated a modus operandi of harassment and assault from as far west as Walnut Street to as far east as Dunn Street, and from as for North as 10th Street to as far south as Kirkwood Street.

Lauren Spierer was last seen heading south towards 10th Street; the northern edge of this danger zone. She was intoxicated and alone.

A Monroe County judge sentenced Messel to eight years on the battery charge and seven years for being a habitual offender.

Records uncover a trail of troubling behavior that one victim says should have raised flags. Suspicious man trolling outside IU bars. “They witnessed this person basically trying to find women to get into his car”. It's a familiar scene in the heart of a college town: young IU co-eds out for the night enjoying food and drinks at off campus establishments. But in the fall of 2012, women leaving bars after a night of drinking crossed paths with a man who would first ask for directions and then try to get them into his car. Six young women called police. Some of them reported a suspicious man trying to get girls into his silver Kia SUV. One reported an attempted rape, and yet another was the victim of a sexual battery. The reports came within weeks of each other, described a similar man, and revealed a troubling pattern. The suspect appeared to be targeting women who were vulnerable and under the influence of alcohol. One night, while sitting on her porch on Grant Street, a friend emerged from the dark, running toward her. A man had approached her friend twice and tried to get her into his car. "She was just so freaked out. That was aggressive enough to me that I felt like we should call the police," the woman recounted. That was August 29, 2012. Three days later, on September 1, Indiana University police responded to the attempted rape of a 22-year old law student. She reported she had been out drinking and ended up in a car with a strange man who tried to sexually assault her. She fought back and scratched him before he punched her in the face and took off. She told I.U. Police she couldn't identify him, but during the medical exam, investigators found she had snagged his DNA under her fingernails.
Daniel Messel’s troubles with the law in Monroe County go back more than 25 years. He was arrested after a girlfriend told police he battered her and confined her in an apartment. He was also arrested on allegations that he beat his grandmother and broke bones in her face. In March 1993, Messel pleaded guilty to one of three battery charges against him and got a 30-day suspended jail term and six months of probation. In February 1994, a criminal recklessness charge was dismissed and Messel pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of an accident; a 182-day jail sentence was dismissed. Three months later, he was arrested for driving while intoxicated, and was sentenced two years later to 120 days on house arrest and a year on probation. According to Monroe County Jail and court records, Messel spent one day incarcerated at the local jail — May 12, 1994 — after an OWI arrest and one day — Aug. 12. 1995 — after a felony domestic battery arrest. In August 1995, he got the maximum 8-year sentence for felony battery and prosecutors dismissed a charge that he was a habitual criminal offender, which would have added time to his prison term. Messel was put on probation for six years after his release from prison in 1999. For the next decade, it appears Messel stayed out of trouble with the law. Then he got a speeding ticket in 2009, which he paid. Messel was charged with battery resulting in injury in November 2006, but the charge was reduced to disorderly conduct. He pleaded guilty and paid $159 in court costs, a $50 public defender fee and a $1 fine. Oct. 2016
