Ohio sheriff cites possibility missing 3 are dead

Officials searching to find a missing Ohio woman, her 10-year-old son and a family friend more than five days after they disappeared said they want to remain optimistic, but can't ignore the evidence, according to the Knox County Sheriff's Department.

"We have to be realistic about the possibility that these folks are dead," Sheriff David Barber said Monday in Mount Vernon.

Tina Herrmann, 32, remains missing, along with her 10-year-old son, Kody Maynard, and her 41-year-old friend, Stephanie Sprang.

    Yeah! Then we waterboard the sheriff because he committed torture (waterboarding). Then waterboard the guy who waterboarded him! Grow up, we are not kids anymore. Waterboarding is torture.

    Waterboarding might not seem bad to you, but to the world the US is falling from a leader in human rights. I want the world to look up to my country.

    Our concept of justice is not consistent with Christian principles. Jesus teaches us forgiveness. Two wrong do not make a right. Killing a killer makes you no better than he.

    @rapum. Agree whole heartedly. And for all you bleeding hearts for the guillty, when sentenced to death put it on tv for everyone to see.Maybe if the criminals see what will happen they'll at least think before commiting a crime

    The lives of the two women are just as important as those of the kids. I get so tired of seeing comments implying otherwise. This guy deserves the worst possible comeuppance.

    Blingdongding is an example of a creature that you just want to leave alone but can't. He is a fool that needs to be addressed. This guy is a sewer. His very nickname is a stench. It seems like he has to be involved in this crime, if you ask me. Maybe his message is a code? An address? 517 Bindoning. Lindon IN. 517 256 3O31
