Police find body of Ohio woman kidnapped near work


LOGAN, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say the body of a southern Ohio woman who was kidnapped outside her job last week has been found in the septic system of a church with a zip tie pulled tight around her neck.

The Hocking County prosecutor says Summer Inman’s estranged husband and his parents each pleaded not guilty today to kidnapping and abduction. Bond was set at $1 million each.

Logan Police Chief Aaron Miller said earlier today that investigators found Inman’s body Tuesday night in nearby Athens County, a week after she went missing. The Logan Daily News reports that the Athens County coroner’s preliminary ruling is that she was strangled.

Charged are 26-year-old William Inman II, 47-year-old William Inman and 46-year-old Sandra Inman, all of Akron.

Miller said Sandra Inman provided information that led police to the body.
