The week-long search for an Ohio woman, her 10-year-old son and a family
friend has ended with the discovery of their remains, Knox County Sheriff David Barber said Thursday.
The bodies of Tina Herrmann, 32, her son, Kody Maynard and friend, Stephanie Sprang, 41, were found in garbage bags in a hollow tree near Frederickton, Ohio, Barber told reporters.
The three went missing last Wednesday, along with Herrmann's 13-year-old daughter, Sarah Maynard, who was found bound and gagged in a basement over the weekend.
The owner of the residence, Matthew Hoffman, 30, was arrested on suspicion of abducting her. Hoffman provided authorities with information that led to their bodies, Barber said.
