Missing Ohio Trio Found Dead

Friday, November 19, 2010 - 12:27pm

Police uncover bodies of mother, son and friend missing since last week.

Authorities in central Ohio have confirmed that the bodies of 32-year-old Tina Hermann, her
10-year-old son Kody and family friend Stephanie Sprang were recovered in a heavily wooded area Thursday.

Police say they found the bodies thanks to information given to them by Matthew Hoffman, the lone suspect in the case.

He's being held on a kidnapping charge.

Hoffman was arrested this past Sunday at his house, the same house where officers found
13-year-old Sarah Maynard gagged and bound, but alive.

Sarah and the three victims were reported missing last Wednesday.

Authorities say evidence of a struggle and blood was found in Herrman's home.

Knox County Sheriff David Barber says the case is now a homicide investigation and will be turned over to the county prosecutor's office.
