Ohio Family Missing

Ohio Family Missing

by Brittany Harris on November 20, 2010

An Ohio coroner has released her report on the three people found dead in central Ohio last Thursday.

The coroner says Tina Herrmann, her 11-year-old son Kody Maynard, and family friend Stephanie Sprang were stabbed to death before being dismembered. All three were struck mutliple times in the back and chest with a knife. Their bodies were then cut up, placed in plastic garbage bags and lowered into a hollow tree on an Ohio wildlife preserve.

Information from the suspect Matthew Hoffman led police to recover the bodies last week. Hoffman has already been charged with kidnapping Hermann’s 13-year-old daughter Sarah Maynard, who was found alive last week. The coroner says there were no signs of sexual assault.
