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.
