INDIANAPOLIS – Daniel Messel was sentenced on Thursday to 80 years in prison for murdering IU student, Hannah Wilson.
Messel was found guilty after Wilson’s body was found hours after she was reported missing, in the wooded area of Plum Creek in Brown County in 2015. His cellphone was laying nearby and investigators found her blood, hair and DNA in Messel’s 2012 Kia SUV.
The Brown County coroner said Wilson died due to blunt force trauma to the head. They said she was struck three or four times in the back of head with an unknown object.
