Ohio authorities are losing hopes that a kidnapped 25-year-old mother of three will be found alive.
Summer Inman, who is 5-foot-3 and 120 pounds with light hair, blue eyes and fair skin, has been missing since Tuesday, when police believe she was kidnapped in the town of Logan about 40 miles southeast of Columbus.
Witnesses say she was forced into a car by two men outside a Logan bank late Tuesday night, according to Fox8.com.
"Law enforcement has no specific information as to her location, and we know that as time goes by, the likelihood of recovering her alive is diminished," Logan police said in a statement to the Columbus Dispatch.
Inman's 26-year-old estranged husband and his parents have been arrested and charged with kidnapping in her disappearance, police said.
William Inman II and his parents, William and Sandra Inman, were arrested Thursday night in Ray, about 30 miles southwest of Logan. A hearing is expected Friday on whether they'll be sent from Jackson County back to Hocking County.
A relative told the Columbus Dispatch that Summer and William were going through a messy divorce and were fighting for custody of their three kids.
"We're all praying. She's a nice, sweet, young little girl. She's very innocent," the relative told the paper.
The Associated Press contributed to this report.

This is disturbing. A 26-yr. old man and his parents? WTF?

Ray sits on the Jackson and Vinton County line. My gr-grandfather is buried at Ray and it's one of those little towns that you will miss if you blink your eyes as you pass by. Were they hiding out there?

Logan Mother Still Missing; Husband, In-Laws Jailed
Kidnapping Suspects Being Held Without Bond


A missing Logan woman's estranged husband, mother-in-law and father-in-law all are behind bars in Athens County Friday.

Summer D. Inman, 25, disappeared during an apparent abduction in Logan late Tuesday.

An investigation into Summer's apparent kidnapping led them to 26-year-old William A. Inman Jr., 47-year-old William A. Inman Sr., and 46-year-old Sandra K. Inman.

The younger Inman is Summer's estranged husband. The elder Inman and Sandra are Summer's father-in-law and mother-in-law.

Logan police said Summer's estranged husband and his parents were arrested on kidnapping charges at about 9:30 p.m. Thursday at a home in the 5900 block of Raysville Road in Jackson County.

The Inmans do not own the Raysville Road home; their residence is listed off Fay Road in Akron, Ohio.

The three suspects did not fight extradition from Jackson County Friday morning.

Only Sandra made a court appearance Friday morning; The younger and elder Inman did not.

Sandra's mother, Martha Wagner, was in court in Jackson County Friday.

"Me and my daughter -- we still love her. We love Summer. We don't want nothing to happen to her. We've kept on loving her," Wagner told NBC4.

Summer still is missing currently, and Logan police asked for the public's continued help and tips.

Summer is a white female who is 5 feet 3 inches tall. She weighs about 120 pounds and has brown hair and green eyes.

She had on blue jeans and a black or dark-colored T-shirt with white lettering when seen last.

Eyewitness accounts indicated two male suspects forced Summer into a vehicle outside Century National Bank in the area of Hunter and Market streets in Logan at about 11 p.m. Tuesday.

Logan police released surveillance images of Summer that were taken Tuesday night before her apparent abduction. She was working an evening shift at the bank for a cleaning service, NBC4 reported.

The photos are available in the slideshow area above the story headline.

Investigators said they hoped the photos would jog the memory of an unknowing witness who might have seen something of importance to the case. Also, a citizen might have seen a discarded article of clothing along a roadway or on their property.

Anyone with information on the case should call Logan police at 740-385-6866 immediately.

Summer filed for a divorce from the younger Inman in June 2010. According to the divorce filing, the younger Inman threatened to kill her if she were to ever leave with the children.

Summer also said in the complaint her husband would hide her car keys and cell phone and hold her captive inside their home.

A report from the Vinton County sheriff's office indicated a deputy was called to the elder Inman and Sandra's previous residence in Dec. 2010. Summer and her boyfriend, Adam Peters, were at the home to pick up her belongings when a fight began. The report indicated the elder Inman threatened to shoot Peters. The elder Inman was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct out of the incident.

The younger Inman and his parents were transported to Southeastern Regional Jail and booked Friday. They are being held without bond. They were scheduled to be arraigned Monday, March 28.

NBC4's Patrick Preston spoke to Jewel Cavinee Friday. Cavinee is a family friend and former church youth group leader for Summer and the younger Inman.

Cavinee described Summer as, "kind, light-hearted and always smiling."

When asked about remaining hopeful for Summer's return, Cavinee said, "The more time that passes, it doesn't look good. But I'm hoping for the best."

Cavinee said she hopes authorities can get the information they need from the younger Inman and his parents.

"Now they have them. And, hopefully, they can get the information they needed -- that somehow they're able to break them down until they will say what happened to Summer."

NBC4 also asked Cavinee about the suspects and Summer and the younger Inman's children.

"You know, they don't have control over Summer and her children, and I think that's a lot of what the problem is -- just a power struggle of sorts."

"We knew that they did not like it that Summer was moving on with her life and making a life for herself and her kids without their involvement," Cavinee said.

Summer Inman Missing Update: FBI search four-county area in Ohio with dogs

CBS/WBNS) LOGAN, Ohio - Police and search dogs spanned a four-county area on Sunday looking for a missing mother of three, Summer Inman, who has not been seen or heard from since Tuesday after she was allegedly kidnapped by her estranged husband and his parents.

Inman, 25, was allegedly forced into a car while in an alley behind a bank where she was working, reports CBS affiliate WBNS.

Her estranged husband, William A. Inman II, 26, and his parents, William, 47 and Sandra, 46, were arrested at their home Thursday and charged with kidnapping.

The FBI have asked people in the area to check their property, especially areas close to roadways, for anything out of the ordinary, reports the station.

On Friday investigators released surveillance photos showing Inman working inside the bank before she was kidnapped. Investigators said they wanted people to see the clothes she was wearing in case they find any discarded items on their property, reports the station.

Inman married her now estranged husband in 2004. She has three children all under the age of 5, according to the station.

Inman is 5-feet-3-inches tall and weighs120 pounds with brown hair and green eyes. She was last seen wearing jeans and a dark T-shirt with white writing.

Investigators say they continue to receive tips from the public and urge anyone with information on Inman's whereabouts to contact the Logan police department at 866-693-9171.

Police: Body of Ohio missing mother may have been found

(CNN) -- Authorities in Ohio say they may have found the body of Summer Inman, a 25-year-old mother who was reported abducted last week.
Police in the southeastern Ohio city of Logan have scheduled a Wednesday morning news conference where they are expected to release more information about the case.
"Tonight, the investigation into the kidnapping of Summer Inman has taken a sad turn, as investigators may have located Summer's body just off U.S. 33," the Logan Police Department said in a statement released Tuesday night.
Inman's abduction and the arrests connected to her case have made national news recently.
Inman, a mother of three, was working as part of a cleaning crew at a local bank on March 22, police said. When she stepped outside, she was grabbed and forced into a white vehicle.
Days later, police announced that they arrested her estranged husband William Inman Jr.; her father-in-law William Inman Sr.; and her mother-in-law, Sandra Inman.
The three face kidnapping charges, police said.
Summer Inman and William Inman Jr. were married in 2004, but the couple was separated, CNN affiliate WBNS reported.
Summer Inman had also filed for divorce and claimed in court documents that her husband had threatened to kill her if she took his children away, the affiliate reported.

It is reported that the mother-in-law told police where her body could be found---in a septic tank in the rear of a Church. They traveled a great distance to my area of the state to clean out the car and to purchase and exchange the tires on the Crown Vic car. Those poor kids, someday they will know that their mother was murdered because of a battle over custody of them, and that their father and grandparents were responsible for their mother's demise and will have been sent away from them also because of the crime. God help them.

Summer Inman's mother-in-law led police to missing Ohio mom's body, say cops

(CBS/WBNS) LOGAN, Ohio - According to Logan police Chief Aaron Miller, Sandra Inman, who is in custody at the Southeast Ohio Regional Jail, told investigators that the body of her daughter in-law, Summer Inman, had been placed in a septic system behind a church near Nelsonville, Ohio.

The body was recovered on Tuesday shortly before 9 p.m. Miller said that officers had to unscrew a cover to the septic system in order to reach the body, reports CBS affiliate WBNS.

While investigators did not release specific information about how Summer Inman died, Miller said on Wednesday that it appeared she was "killed very quickly" the night she was kidnapped.

Police are still awaiting the autopsy report, the station reports.

Police allege that Inman's estranged husband, William A. Inman II, 26, and his parents, William A. Inman, 47, and Sandra Inman, 46 are responsible for her disappearance. They remain in the Southeast Ohio Regional Jail after their arrests on kidnapping charges last week, reports the station.

Summer and William were married in 2004, but the couple separated last year. Since then she was granted a civil protection order, the station reports.

In court documents pertaining to William and Summer Inman's divorce, Summer claimed her husband "threatened to kill" her if she ever "took the children from him." She also stated in the documents that her in-laws would "gang up on me to just work things out," reports the station.

Neighbors said that the Inman family was ruled by William Inman and referred to him as "hyper," "controlling" and "scary," according to the station.

On the 6 o'clock news, they have just said she was believed to have been strangled by them. They said the reason for the divorce was that the men in the family had been too controlling of the women. This could explain the involvement of the MIL, and also how quickly she told of the crime and the location of the body once the men were locked up (in my opinion). Of note is that they report that the father-in-law fancied himself "a very RELIGIOUS person"----egads!

What you are saying TR makes perfect sense, I hadn't thought of that. It does make sense if the husband and son were locked up and she felt protected that she gave up the info. Yeah right, religious. Those types just love to hide behind the ruse of 'God fearing'.

Summer D. Inman disappearance

Missing woman's body found after mother-in-law makes plea deal

Coroner rules strangulation caused death

Wednesday, March 30, 2011 03:06 AM

Updated: Wednesday, March 30, 2011 06:03 PM

By Mary Beth Lane and Randy Ludlow
THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

LOGAN, Ohio - Summer Inman's body was found in the septic system of a church near Nelsonville after her mother-in-law provided information last night where the body could be found, investigators said this morning.

Logan police descended on the Faith Tabernacle Church along Rt. 33 in Athens County at 8:50 p.m. yesterday after Sandra K. Inman spoke with her lawyer at the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail in Nelsonville, police said.

Hocking County Prosecutor Laina Fetherolf confirmed that authorities made a plea deal with Sandra Inman in exchange for disclosure of where Summer Inman's body was located. Fetherolf declined to provide details at a Logan press conference.

Authorities announced late this afternoon that an autopsy determined that Summer Inman died from strangulation.

Sandra Inman; her husband, William A. Inman; and their son, William A. Inman II, Summer's estranged husband, charged with kidnapping her from Logan, are being held under $1 million bonds after appearing in court this afternoon.

The Inmans apparently were former members of the church where Summer's body was hidden, said Logan Police Chief Aaron Miller. "It would appear she was killed very quickly, that evening, the evening of the crime," he said.

The 25-year-old mother of three was undergoing a contentious divorce with her husband.

Her body was found in the "cistern-type" portion of the septic system, which was accessed by a steel cover secured by six screws, Miller said. The church, where William A. Inman and Sandra Inman were married, is about 10 miles southeast of Logan.

The area near the church had been searched earlier yesterday as part of a general search along roads the Inmans were thought to have traveled after Summer was abducted, the police chief said.

Miller said police received valuable tips from all around the state and recovered "significant evidence" at the Inmans' home in Akron after police in that city obtained a search warrant.

The Montgomery County coroner's office in Dayton conducted the autopsy and returned a finding of ligature strangulation by some form of rope or cord.

Pastor King Kelly of Faith Tabernacle Church said William and Sandra Inman were familiar with every inch of the church and its grounds. They were married at the church and the elder Inman helped build two church additions, he said.

They left the church about eight years ago when they moved temporarily to Florida, but William Inman still attended services from time to time. "It's a shock, a shock to everyone," Kelly said of the discovery of Summer in the septic tank.

Tonight was to be dedicated to prayers for both Summer, her husband and his parents, said Kelly, 75, who has served as pastor of the church for 40 years. "Once a person steps outside of God's law, and man's law, we can pray all they want. But, they still have to face the problem," he said.

Each of the Inmans appeared this afternoon before Hocking County Common Pleas Court Judge Thomas H. Gerken, who set their bonds at $1 million each. Each is charged with one count of kidnapping and one count of abduction.

Sandra Inman, 46, appeared distraught in the courtroom as she walked past Summer Inman's family members. She looked at them and mouthed: "I'm so sorry." With two lawyers at her side, she entered a plea of not guilty.

William A. Inman, 47, and his 26-year-old namesake son were emotionless at their separate arraignments. Gerken appointed public defenders to represent them and entered not-guilty pleas on their behalf since they did not yet have lawyers.

Michael Cook, Summer's father, and other family members quickly left the courtroom after the arraignments and did not speak with reporters.

Late last night, Logan police announced that a body had been found near Rt. 33, just inside the Athens County line near Hocking County. Authorities had been searching for Inman since she disappeared a week ago yesterday.

Her husband told police he was staying in the Cleveland area with his parents the night his wife disappeared, but Miller said investigators were able to quickly discredit that "alibi."

Summer D. Inman and William A. Inman II were entangled in a divorce and custody fight over their three children in the months before she was snatched off the street.

Authorities say Summer Inman was abducted and forced into a car about 11 p.m. on March 22 outside the Century National Bank in downtown Logan, where she was working. Witnesses have said the car was like the Inmans' white Ford Crown Victoria, and that two men pushed her into the car while a blond woman drove.

Authorities were tracing the stops made by the Inmans in the hours after Summer Inman was abducted.

Information from a variety of sources led investigators to the Blu Sonic Car Wash in Seven Hills, just south of Cleveland, where the Inmans stopped at approximately 7:30 a.m. on March 23, Chief Miller said yesterday.

Surveillance-camera video shows the Inmans cleaning the interior of the white Ford Crown Victoria. "There is no sign of Summer anywhere in the video," Miller said.

The elder Inman is shown removing a police spotlight from the driver's side of the car and taking a temporary license plate from the front window area and affixing it to the car's rear bumper, Miller said.

"Couple this information with the purchase of new wheels and tires from the Pearl Road Auto Wrecking and Salvage in Cleveland a couple of hours later, and it is apparent the Inmans are trying to significantly alter the appearance of the vehicle in case there were witnesses to any of their actions," Miller said.

About 12 hours after Summer Inman disappeared, three people thought to be her husband and his parents drove a white Ford Crown Victoria into Pearl Road Auto Wrecking and Salvage in Cleveland. A man thought to be the elder Inman told a worker that he wanted a different set of 16-inch wheels and tires for his car and traded in his existing four, Miller said. He put them on the car and drove off.

About four hours later, another man visited the salvage business, paid cash for the wheels and tires that came from the Inmans' car, and left, Miller said.

Investigators also have learned that the Inmans might have stopped at two car washes in the McConnelsville area of Morgan County after leaving Logan and before stopping at the Blu Sonic in Seven Hills, Miller said. He said they're now reviewing surveillance tapes at those businesses.

Summer Cook and William A. Inman II married in June 2004. They had three children who are now 5, 3, and 21 months old.

Summer Inman filed for divorce in June in Vinton County, where the couple had lived with his parents in a house in rural Hamden. Summer Inman then moved back with her own family in Logan.

The day after she disappeared, the Hocking County Juvenile Court gave custody of the children to her parents, Michael and Deborah Cook.

Records show that as their divorce proceedings went forward, the couple argued over child custody and visits, and over Summer's boyfriend, Adam D. Peters.

Summer Inman swore in an affidavit that her estranged husband had threatened to kill her if she ever "took the children from him." She also said he would take her car keys, wallet and cell phone to hold her captive in their residence. She said he had taken her cats and either killed or abandoned them in retribution for a perceived offense, according to the divorce file.

Her father-in-law received a suspended jail sentence and one year's probation from a Vinton County Court judge in December, after he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor offenses of aggravated menacing and disorderly conduct.

According to records, the elder Inman threatened Peters and scuffled with a deputy who was on hand when Summer Inman and Peters came to the Hamden house to clear out her belongings.

It takes a real stupid person to kill the mother of the children he doesn't want to lose. I believe in this case, stupid is in the make-up of Inman genetic material. Like father, like son.

Stupid x Infinity=Wm. Inman I & II.

Are we looking at least to two death sentences and one life without parole? How about hanging in the public square? How about lobotomy, then drop them into the cistern? That would't cost much.

Three tiny children have lost more than their dad ever stood to lose, if he lost custody. So much more. He is obviously the narcissistic sociopath which fits the description of the most murderers.

My prayers go out to them and to the grandparents who are now charged with raising them for the next 20 years.

Police: Evidence shows kidnapping of Summer Inman was well planned

Summer Inman's kidnapping -- and eventual death -- appeared well planned and included law-enforcement overtones such as the use of a Taser and plastic zip-tie handcuffs.

An unidentified man who approached two men forcing her into a car outside a downtown Logan bank about 11 p.m. on March 22 reported he came within a foot of her abductors.

The men were using a Taser to stun the mother of three, the witness said, adding that the woman driving the car shouted to the men: "Someone is behind you!"

One of the men then used pepper spray to douse the witness, who ran from the area. Three other witnesses reported that Inman was screaming as she was forced into the vehicle driven by a woman with bleached blonde hair.

The kidnappers appeared to have been lying in wait for Inman, leaving footprints behind some shrubbery.

The details come from an affidavit released today that Logan Police Chief Aaron Miller filed to obtain warrants to charge Inman's estranged husband, William A. Inman, 26, and his parents with her kidnapping.

The Inmans were arrested March 24, but the body of 25-year-old Summer Inman was not found until Tuesday night, when her mother-in-law, Sandra Inman told her lawyer where the body could be found.

When Summer was pulled from the underground septic tank behind the Faith Tabernacle Church along Rt. 33 outside Nelsonville, plastic zip ties - similar to "quick handcuffs" used by police - were found on her body. The elder Inman and his wife are former members of the church and were married there.

One tie was cinched tight around Summer's neck, and another encircled her wrists, which were bound behind her back. The coroner reported she had been strangled.

William A. Inman II, 26, known as "Will" to his friends; his father, William A. Inman, 47; and Sandra Inman, 46, all have pleaded not guilty to kidnapping and are being held under $1 million bond as police continue to investigate the slaying.

The police chief's affidavit also reveals that a GPS recovered from the Inmans' home in Akron provided apparent details about the family's travels.

The device showed directions on traveling from Akron to Logan on March 22, when Summer disappeared, with arrival in Logan at 5:49 p.m. The device then was turned off and reactivated in Logan at 11:46 p.m., showing arrival back in Akron at 2:15 a.m. on March 23.

"The Inman family has attempted to mislead police, lying about their whereabouts," Miller wrote. Will Inman contacted Logan police on March 23 and said he had not been in Logan since March 17. Telephone records showed his cellphone in use in Logan on the evening of March 22.

A warrant obtained in Akron to search the Inmans' home on March 23 stated that Inman claimed his car was broken down along an interstate in the Cleveland area on the evening of March 22. A gold "security enforcement officer" badge was among the items seized from the house.

When he called 911 about his missing daughter about 11:47 p.m. on March 22, Michael Cook said that Will Inman had called the family earlier that evening to report he could not pick up his three children for visitation the next day because his car had broken down. Will and Summer Inman were involved in a bitter divorce.

Cook reported that when Summer did not follow her usual routine of using her cellphone to send a text she was heading home from her bank cleaning job, the family traveled to the bank to look for her 20 minutes later. They found her coat, I-Pod and car keys outside the bank and then called police.

Video Shows Altercation Between Summer Inman, In-Laws

VINTON COUNTY, Ohio --
Authorities have released video showing an altercation between Summer Inman and her in-laws in December that ended with her father-in-law's arrest.

In December, William A. Inman Sr. was losing his house and William A. Inman Jr. and Summer were getting a divorce.

Video released by the Vinton County Sheriff's Office shows the incident after a deputy was called to the scene.

"Right now he's arguing with Summer, saying it was her fault for them being evicted from the house," said Vinton County Deputy Ryan Cain.

According to officials, Summer was at the home trying to get some of her belongings back. Cain said Summer's boyfriend arrived to help and the elder Inman didn't like it.

"He stands up and goes, 'Stay off my [expletive] property. He just shouts out saying he was going to shoot him, turns to his house like hw as going for a gun and starts walking towards him. That's when I step in," Cain said.

That's when the situation turned violent.

"He tells me, 'Don't put your [expletive] hands on me' and I say, 'You are under arrest.' He grabs my arm and tries to rip away from me here. We have a struggle for two or three minutes," Cain said.

After the struggle, Cain took the upper hand, held the elder Inman's arms and eventually aimed a Taser at him while his wife Sandra tried to barter.

"Right now [she's] asking me if we can forget about this. I said, 'No,'" Cain said.

Charges were filed against the elder Inman, including resisting arrest.

Cain also said he gained insight into what he perceived as control issues and a power struggle from Summer.

"She advised that her and her husband were divorcing and she couldn't stand the family and every time they had a fight, the father and mother would be in there and get involved," Cain said.

Sandra and the elder and younger Inmans are each charged in the kidnapping of Summer on March 22.

Investigators found Summer's body in a septic system on the property of a Nelsonville church on March 29.

Athens County Coroner Harold Thompson's preliminary ruling was that the cause of Summer's death was strangulation. Thompson told the Logan Daily News the woman's wrists were bound with a zip tie and another zip tie was pulled tight around her neck.

Summer's husband, father-in-law and mother-in-law were arraigned Wednesday, March 30, and each pleaded not guilty to a charge of kidnapping and a charge of abduction.

Bond was set at $1 million each. The suspects remain at the Southeastern Regional Jail.

The prosecutor said additional charges may not be filed until the grand jury convenes again Friday, April 22.

Normal KIDNAPPING OF SUMMER INMAN Witness to Inman kidnapping wishes he could have done more

KIDNAPPING OF SUMMER INMAN
Witness to Inman kidnapping wishes he could have done more

Saturday, April 2, 2011 03:07 AM
By Wesley Lowery
FOR THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

HAYDENVILLE, Ohio - As the oldest of four children, Richard Leake is used to standing up for people.

So when he heard a woman's desperate screams as he walked down a Logan alley late on the night of March 22, he knew he had to do something.

"It sounded like she was getting her arm cut off," said Leake, 21, who is known as Joey to his friends and family.

The first thing that Leake saw next to the Century National Bank was a white vehicle that looked like a police car. He then saw two men dressed in black, who he figured were police officers.

But as he got closer, he noticed that there was a woman curled in a ball beneath the open car door, attempting to fend off the men.

As 25-year-old Summer Inman continued to scream, Leake realized these men weren't police: He saw that they wore ski masks and that they were shocking her with a stun gun.

"They held it on her," Leake said. "You can't forget something like that ... the way they were Tazing her."

Leake moved quickly in an attempt to help. He said he got about a foot from the car when the woman driving the car - he said she was a bleached blonde - cried out to warn the men that he was coming up behind them.

That's when the taller of the two men turned around and blinded Leake with a chemical spray.

"They pepper-sprayed me and then my vision went blank," said Leake, who then ran for his own safety. He said he ran into a woman walking toward him and told her what was happening, and they called police.

It was the last time anyone would see Summer Inman alive.

Summer's estranged husband, William A. Inman II, 26, and his parents, William A. Inman, 47, and Sandra Inman, 46, are charged in her kidnapping and are being held in lieu of $1 million bond each.

More charges are expected in connection with Summer's death. Her body was discovered on Tuesday, bound with plastic ties in the septic tank of an Athens County church. She had been strangled.

Authorities say Sandra Inman revealed the location of the body as part of a plea deal. The Faith Tabernacle Church, nestled alongside Rt. 33 just north of Nelsonville, was familiar to the Inmans, who had attended the church and been married there.

Authorities say Summer and William Inman II were fighting over custody of their three small children, who are now living with Summer's parents.

The crime-scene tape at the church has been taken down, but remembrances of Summer remain around the building, and in her hometown of Logan.

The churchyard has become a makeshift memorial to the slain mother. Balloons, flowers and notes line the ground near the church's entrance. Similar memorials are scattered throughout Logan, where yellow, purple and green ribbons still are tied to trees, street signs and telephone posts of that Hocking County town.

"You don't ever think you would see something like that in a small town like this," said Leake, who lives in Haydenville, just south of Logan. "It bothers me; I should have done something else."

Leake's mother was more than a little shaken after hearing of her son's attempt to help Summer.

"What if they had a gun? They could have shot him," said Misti Leake, 37, who said she was in bed when her oldest son came home at almost 3 a.m. March 23 with his left eye nearly swollen shut.

"He's always been the one to stick up for people," she said.

But attempting to help cost Joey Leake more than a swollen eye. After staying at the Hocking County sheriff's office until the early morning hours that day, he overslept and missed work, causing him to be fired from his job at Saw Miller Inc., a hardwood-packaging outlet that's only a few hundred feet from his front door.

"They said, 'No call, no show' and fired him on the spot," Misti Leake said. "I don't think they knew the full extent of what happened at the time."

Joey, who has worked at the hardwood warehouse for four years, cut his former employer some slack. He had missed two days of work the previous week, he said, so the third day was the clincher.

Despite that, Joey Leake said the only thing he'd change about the night of March 22, if he could, is he'd try to do more to save Summer Inman.

"I've heard people say that I should have done more, and I've heard people say that I did what I could do. In a way it's both," he said. "I wish I could have did more for her, but I did what I could do.

"I'm only human. I did what I could."

Funeral held for Ohio woman found in church septic tank; husband, in-laws face kidnap charge

LOGAN, Ohio — An Ohio woman was laid to rest Monday almost a week after she was found in a church’s septic system with a zip tie pulled tightly around her neck. Her estranged husband and his parents have been charged with kidnapping.

Summer Inman, 25, and her husband were in the middle of a divorce and custody dispute, police said. The woman’s parents have been awarded temporary custody of the children, who are ages 5, 3 and 1.

The children attended her funeral along with the grandparents, Michael and Debra Cook, at First Church Praise and Worship Center in Logan, about 45 miles southeast of Columbus.

Slain woman mourned in Hocking County

LOGAN, Ohio -- When the funeral service was over today, relatives of 25-year-old Summer Dawn Cook Inman stood before her flower-draped casket, holding her three children in their arms, and selected a flower for each child: 5-year-old Alexander, a handsome little man wearing a dark suit with pastel tie; 3-year-old Kaley, who wore a pink dress; and little Alanna, who will turn 2 in June.

Their mother was laid to rest today, remembered as a young woman with a radiant smile and a sunny personality - and, surrounded by friends and family, not as the victim of a brutal abduction that cut her life short.

Summer's parents, Michael and Debra Cook, her children and her boyfriend, Adam D. Peters, listened as she was eulogized at First Church Praise and Worship Center in Logan.

She had attended the church since she was a girl. She was a familiar face at Sunday school, and oh, that smile she had, church member John Chappelear recalled.

"I will always remember her million-dollar smile," Chappelear said. "It's like a summer sunshine. Thank you for naming her Summer Dawn."

The Rev. Michael L. Martin, the church pastor, had known Summer since the day she was born, Dec. 31, 1985, at Hocking Valley Hospital in Logan. A family friend, he visited that day.

"I am privileged to be here today to say a final goodbye to her," Martin said.

He remembered her as quiet and kind of shy as a girl and, as she grew up, as a friendly, outgoing young woman always willing to contribute to church bake sales and other activities. He, too, remembered that smile. "Her smile was infectious," he said.

The last time the pastor saw her was at the Sunday service March 20. She brought the children with her.

Two days later, she was snatched off a downtown Logan street by two men wearing dark-colored clothing and ski masks who bundled her into a white Ford Crown Victoria driven by a woman with blond hair.

Her body was found last Tuesday night, bound, strangled and hidden in an underground septic tank behind Faith Tabernacle Church along Rt. 33 near Nelsonville.

Summer and her husband had been locked in a contentious divorce and child-custody dispute since June.

William A. "Will" Inman II, 26, and his parents, William A. "Bill" Inman, 47, and Sandra K. "Sandy" Inman, 46, have been charged with kidnapping and abduction and are being held in lieu of $1 million bond in the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail in Nelsonville.

More charges are expected, Hocking County Prosecutor Laina Fetherolf said.

Sandy Inman made a plea deal and told investigators where the body of her daughter-in-law could be found, Logan Police Chief Aaron Miller said. He would not disclose the terms of the deal.

Summer began seeing Peters around the time she left her husband and filed for divorce.

Peters played the piano at the service today, providing a soft soundtrack to a story told to the congregation by Summer's maternal aunt, Diana Drengler.

The couple and the children had visited her at her Wisconsin home in September. It was a needed getaway for Summer amid the tense divorce proceedings.

"We had a blast," her aunt recalled. "The best part was to see the joy of the love between her and Adam."

Later on, searching for something in a drawer, she found Summer's written musings about love and what she had found with Peters.

What is true love, and is it real? Summer asked herself. "I believe in true love," she wrote. "It's something you feel. It's in the way they look at you, the way they talk to you, and treat you. The way they touch you."

When Drengler finished, the several hundred mourners, including several uniformed Logan police officers who had searched for Summer, sang a hymn.

Martin asked the mourners to cherish her memory.

"The children will be a constant reminder to us of the love and compassion she had for her family," he said.

A procession to New Faith Memorial Gardens in Rockbridge for interment followed the service.

Mike and Debbie Cook have custody of Summer Inman's children. The Summer Inman Fund has been established to benefit the children. Donations can be made through Century National Bank, 61 N. Market St., Logan, OH 43138.

Summer Inman's mother-in-law changes kidnapping plea to insanity


LOGAN, Ohio -- A southeastern Ohio woman accused of kidnapping her daughter-in-law has changed her plea to not guilty by reason of insanity.

Sandra K. "Sandy" Inman, 46, William A. "Bill" Inman, 47, and Summer Inman's estranged husband, William A. "Will" Inman II, 26, are all charged in Hocking County Common Pleas Court with kidnapping and abduction. The parents and their son are suspects in Summer Inman's death but have not yet been charged.

They had each pleaded not guilty to the kidnapping and abduction charges on March 30 before Common Pleas Judge Thomas Gerken. Mrs. Inman changed her plea in a pretrial hearing on Tuesday.

Her Logan attorney, Kyle Henderson, would not comment today about the plea change.

The Inmans are being held in lieu of $1million bond each at the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail in Nelsonville.

The Inman men worked in construction, and the family was living most recently in Akron and remodeling the house of a friend. The family lived in Vinton County before that.

Will and Summer Inman had been going through a contentious divorce and child-custody dispute since she left him in June and took their three children with her.

Also today, Logan County Prosecutor Laina Fetherolf released statements from a fellow inmate who claims that the elder Inman confessed to the crime after his arrest last month.

The inmate, who was being held in the same area of the jail, told Logan Police Chief Aaron Miller that Bill Inman cried at the jail and said, "Wish we hadn't done it. Wish I hadn't helped my son out."

Bill Inman made the remark after receiving a letter from his wife, inmate Anthony "Tony" Blair Foster told the police chief in an interview at the jail on March 27.

Bill Inman also said he was worried that his wife "might say something," Foster told the police chief.

Foster told Miller in an interview the next day that Bill Inman had also said, "I'll tell you what: No matter how hard they try, they will never find her, as long as my boy and wife stay strong."

The Inmans were arrested on March 24, two days after two men wearing ski masks snatched Summer Inman, 25, from the parking lot of the Logan bank where she was working an evening shift as a janitor. Witnesses say the men shoved her into a car driven by a woman.

Summer Inman's bound, strangled body was found in a church septic tank near Nelsonville on March 29 after Sandy Inman made an unspecified deal with prosecutors and told authorities where the body could be found.

Meanwhile, Richard "Joey" Leake, 21, who was pepper-sprayed by one of the men abducting Summer Inman after stumbling upon the kidnapping and trying to come to her aid, said he has his old job back.

Leake didn't get home until about 3 a.m. on March 23, his left eye nearly swollen shut. He said he overslept, missed work and was fired. Leake admitted, however, that he had missed work twice the week before, and that the third time was the clincher.

His employer, Saw Miller Inc., gave him a second chance. As of Friday, Leake was back on the job cutting slabs of wood for $9.50 an hour. His bosses told him they appreciated what he had tried to do, he said today.

Leake said that he wishes he could have done more.

Charges in Inman death not presented to grand jury

LOGAN -- Though it was widely anticipated charges would be brought before a grand jury Friday regarding the death of Summer Cook Inman, that did not happen.

While the grand jury did meet in Hocking County Common Pleas Court as regularly scheduled, no charges were presented. The Inman trio �” Summer’s estranged husband William Inman II, and his parents William and Sandra Inman �” already have been indicted on abduction and kidnapping charges in relation to the 25-year-old’s disappearance.

“The Hocking County Prosecuting Attorney’s office will not be presenting further charges against William Inman, William Inman II, or Sandra Inman at today’s grand jury,” said a statement issued by Prosecutor Laina Fetherolf on Friday. “The investigation into Summer Inman’s death is ongoing.” The next regularly scheduled grand jury is May 12.

Additional alleged details surrounding the March 22 kidnapping and murder of Summer have come to light through interviews Logan police conducted with witnesses, acquaintances and others.

The sequence of events from that night shows that Logan police went to the scene two times. At 11:19 p.m., Richard “Joey” Leake, the witness known to have been pepper-sprayed by the suspects, called police to say, “I think a woman is being taken; she’s screaming and being pulled into a vehicle.” Just a few minutes later, a woman in front of North’s Fitness Center on Main Street called for Leake advising a girl had been kidnapped and Leake was Maced by a man in the vehicle.

These calls generated the initial response to North’s and to the alley between the rear of the gym and the post office. Nothing was found in these areas. “Mr. Leake was having a hard time telling officers what had taken place, but he could tell officers he had been pepper-sprayed and a woman was kidnapped in a white vehicle; he had no further description�-. Mr. Leake was in a great deal of pain from the Mace in his eyes and was taken back to the station by Officer Campbell to rinse his eyes. Lt. Walton checked the alley between the Post Office and North’s Fitness Center and found nothing. Officer Walton went back to the station to check on new information.”

Without more to go on and nothing found, police left �” until another round of calls tied it all together. That’s when Summer’s father Mike Cook and her mother Debbie Cook each made separate calls. Police arrived at Century National Bank and spoke to Mrs. Cook and Summer’s fiance, Adam Peters. The investigation proceeded from there.

There were at least two other witnesses who heard or saw the kidnapping in addition to Joey Leake. A few hours after the crime, Kylee Helman of Bremen reported, “Me and my friend were jogging past the bank and we heard a girl screaming and with sounds of a Taser going; me and my friend crossed the street and saw an old white cop car pull out and turn toward Speedway and a guy with a red hat on running away.”

Linda Harris of Logan reported, “On the night of March 22, 2011, at 11:11 p.m., I saw a late model four door white car in the parking lot of Century National Bank. I was at the light on Hunter Street. I was stopped as the light was red. I had my window cracked and I heard screaming and yelling. I looked at the white car and observed a man with dark hair and a dark jacket on and a woman standing outside of the back door on the driver’s side. The car door was open. It sounded as if she screamed the word ‘no.’ The light turned green and I continued on my way. As I drove by I saw him push her with both hands on her chest. She fell into the back seat and he shut the door.”

Some of the evidence in the kidnapping case against the Inmans includes that William Inman owns a white Crown Victoria.

An instant message conversation William Inman II had with Brittany, the cousin of Peters, also was provided to the Logan Police Department.

In the conversation �” which takes place after Summer’s kidnapping and before the Inmans were arrested �” William Inman II states, “I wish I was able to be there to see and comfort my babies but the courts won’t allow it.”

Brittany replied, “I don’t know how this could happen, but of course you are a suspect since you are the ex; that always happens.”

Inman II stated, “I know, and I was broke down on the side of the road up in Cleveland too �- Plus I have store receipts so it won’t be too easy to pin in on me.”

“Well that’s good then; you see these things on TV all the time�-,” Brittany continued. “You don’t seem like a kidnapper.”

“It takes a special kind of person to do what they did,” Inman II responded.

While the Inmans have not been charged in relation to the murder of Summer, individuals have provided statements about alleged conversations they’ve had with the family about the crimes.

Anthony “Tony” Blair Foster of New Lexington, who was housed in the same area of the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail as William Inman, said at one point Inman received a letter from his wife, started crying and allegedly said, “Wish we hadn’t done it, wish I hadn’t helped out my son.” In a separate conversation Inman allegedly stated, “I’m really worried my wife might say something.”

During a later interview with police, Foster said that while the two were conversing, Inman allegedly stated, “I’ll tell you what, no matter how hard they try they will never find her, as long as my boy and wife stay strong.” Foster then asked, “Who is they?” Inman allegedly replied, “The cops.” Foster asked, “Who is her?” and Inman said, “My boy’s girl.” When Foster asked Inman if he killed her, Inman allegedly became upset at him for asking the question.

Sylvia Miller of Logan reported on the afternoon of March 27, she was talking with Sandra Inman. Sandra told her they [the Inmans] took [Summer] and Sandra was driving the car. Sandra allegedly said they took her to the house and then buried her in the back yard after she was beaten.

Miller stated she asked how Sandra could do something like that and she allegedly replied, “I don’t know; she just needed to be punished. She won’t hurt anyone anymore.”

Summer actually was found strangled to death in a septic tank behind the Faith Tabernacle Church near Nelsonville, along U.S. 33.

Two witnesses say they saw William Inman’s white Crown Victoria parked at the church the night of the kidnapping.

Colten Kilkenny of Logan stated he was on his way home from his job in Nelsonville March 22. He clocked out at 11:20 p.m., and as he headed home he “noticed a white car parked at the church. It was parked at an angle facing Logan.”

“I thought it was a police car at first, but after looking I noticed that it wasn’t. I didn’t think anything about it until they found her body at the same church,” he noted.

Crystal Faris of Buchtel also noticed the vehicle on the night of March 22.

“On my way back home around 12 to 12:30 a.m., on Route 33 in the church parking lot was a big white car that was parked towards the back of the building and parked crooked. I didn’t think much about it because people stop there all the time, but it caught my attention because it was parked so close to the back on the right side. Originally, cars always pull over next to the road. Two men were out of the car. It was too dark to recognize, but both were about six feet tall give or take a little. I thought they just had car trouble.”

The first guy, Richard Joey Leake tried to help but was sprayed w/ pepper spray and he called LE. I'm thinking that the others that saw the car parked strangely on the street thought about it after the fact, but I'm not sure. That poor girl, she was screaming for help and help was so close, I can't imagine.

Vinton County man pleads not guilty in daughter-in-law's death

LOGAN, Ohio -- The father-in-law of a Hocking County mother of three who was abducted, strangled and left in a septic tank pleaded not guilty this morning to aggravated murder and other charges in her death.

William A. "Bill" Inman, 47, of Hamden in Vinton County, showed no emotion as one of his lawyers entered the plea before Common Pleas Judge Thomas Gerken.

Inman and his son, William A. "Will" Inman II, 26, the husband of 25-year-old Summer Inman, face the death penalty. The younger Inman pleaded not guilty yesterday.

A grand jury indicted the Inmans on Friday. They each are charged with two counts of aggravated murder, and single counts of murder, kidnapping, tampering with evidence and gross abuse of a corpse.

By law, death-penalty cases require two defense lawyers. Lancaster attorney Andrew Stevenson and Athens attorney K. Robert Toy, who represent the elder Inman, said after the arraignment that they expect the case to go to trial.

"We always prepare every case as if it is going to go to trial," Stevenson said.

Three relatives of the elder Inman attended the arraignment, one of them mouthing, "I love you," to him as deputies escorted him, shackled at the feet and the hands, into the courtroom. They refused to talk to reporters afterward.

The Inmans are being held at the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail in lieu of $1 million bond.

They and Sandra K. "Sandy" Inman, 46, Summer Inman's mother-in-law, who also is jailed there in lieu of the same bond, were indicted in March on kidnapping and abduction charges.

Will and Summer Inman had been going through a contentious divorce and child-custody dispute since she left him in June and took their three children with her.

The Inmans were arrested March 24, two days after two men snatched Summer Inman from the parking lot of the downtown Logan bank that she was cleaning after hours. They shoved her into a car driven by a woman.

Summer Inman's bound, strangled body was found in a church septic tank near Nelsonville on March 29 after Sandy Inman made an unspecified deal with prosecutors and told authorities where her daughter-in-law's body could be found.

She has not been indicted on additional charges. She has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to the kidnapping and abduction charges.

Final autopsy results show Ohio woman found dead in septic tank was killed quickly, held purse


ATHENS, Ohio — A woman found dead in a septic tank in southeast Ohio still had her purse on her arm and was killed within 45 minutes after being snatched off a street, an autopsy report said.

The autopsy findings released by the Athens County coroner confirmed a preliminary ruling that Summer Inman, 25, was strangled, the Logan Daily News reported Wednesday. Inman had a "plastic zip tie positioned tightly around" her neck and zip ties around her wrists, according to the medical examiner who conducted the autopsy.

Summer Inman was abducted March 22 near a bank she cleaned in Logan, about 45 miles southeast of Columbus, authorities have said. The body was found seven days later in a septic tank behind the Faith Tabernacle Church just north of Nelsonville in Athens County.

The victim's estranged husband, William A. Inman II, 26, and his parents, William A. Inman, 47, and Sandra K. Inman, 46, were arrested March 24 and charged with the kidnapping. The men later were charged with two counts of aggravated murder and one count each of murder, tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse. They have pleaded not guilty.

Sandra Inman, who led authorities to the body, has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to kidnapping and abduction charges. A judge has ordered an evaluation of her mental condition.

Police have not provided a motive for the crimes.

Summer Inman filed for divorce last June after six years of marriage, seeking custody of their three children — ages 5, 3 and 1 — and accusing her husband of being cruel and neglectful, according to court records.

She said her husband threatened to kill her if she "took the children from him" and that he had taken her pet cats and killed or abandoned them in retribution for a "perceived offense."

Bryan D. Casto, the forensic pathologist and deputy coroner in Montgomery County who conducted the autopsy, confirmed the preliminary ruling provided by Athens County Coroner Harold Thompson III in late March, the newspaper reported.

Summer Inman did not inhale any sewage into her lungs, which was consistent with her being dead before she was placed in the septic tank, Casto noted. Police said she was abducted about 11 p.m., and Casto placed her time of death at between 11 and 11:45 p.m. He also noted bruises on her "upper and lower extremities."

The Athens County coroner did not immediately return calls Wednesday, and Montgomery County coroner's office does not release information on homicide investigations, Director Ken Betz said. The Hocking County prosecutor's office referred calls seeking the autopsy results to the Hocking County coroner, who was out of state and could not be reached for comment, a woman in his office said.

All three suspects remain in the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail on $1 million bond.

Ohio mother-in-law indicted on murder charges

LOGAN, Ohio (AP) — Authorities in southeast Ohio say the mother-in-law of a woman found strangled in a septic tank has been indicted on a charge of murder.

Hocking County authorities said Tuesday a grand jury indicted Sandra Inman on counts of murder, kidnapping, tampering with evidence and gross abuse of a corpse. She will be arraigned later this month.

Inman had earlier pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to charges of kidnapping and abduction of 25-year-old Summer Inman in March. A message was left Tuesday for Sandra Inman's attorney.

Summer Inman's estranged husband and his father were charged earlier with murder and kidnapping. Both have pleaded not guilty.

Sandra Inman, age 46, had been undergoing competency evaluations. Details of her indictment weren't immediately available.

Younger Inman Asks To Wear Religious Garments In Jail

LOGAN, Ohio -- The estranged husband of a Logan mother found dead in a septic tank is asking to wear religious attire while in jail.

The Logan Daily News reports William Inman II, charged with murdering Summer Inman, has requested he be allowed to wear religious attire while incarcerated at the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail.

The request was discussed during an omnibus hearing Wednesday morning, according to the Daily News. The younger Inman's request hasn't been approved.

On Tuesday, the jail agreed to let William Inman I (the younger Inman's father) have a sackcloth and ashes for a religious observance. A sackcloth and ashes are biblical symbols of mourning or repentance.

The younger Inman's lawyers asked that he be allowed a complete set of white garments to wear while praying and fasting as Ecclesiastes 9:8 directs of the devout, "let thy garments always be white, and let thy head lack no ointment," the Daily News said.

NBC4's Rick Reitzel spoke with Pastor King Kelly with Faith Tabernacle Church Friday.

Kelly said the Inmans could be following the Old Testament. He also said he won't judge them; they were church members and friends for 30 years.

"The only time I've even heard tell of anything like this is by reading in the Old Testament," Kelly said.

Reitzel asked Kelly whether he feels the Inmans were a good, Christian family. Kelly said they were an exceptional family.

"This thing is in the hands of man's law as well as God's law together," Kelly said.

Summer Inman was found strangled in March.

Both the elder and younger Inmans and Sandra Inman (Summer's mother-in-law) have pleaded not guilty in her killing.

Judge: Sandra Inman sane at time of daughter-in-law's murder

By Mary Beth Lane

The Columbus Dispatch Friday February 24, 2012 1:51 PM

A judge ruled yesterday that Sandra Inman was sane at the time of her daughter-in-law's death.

A southeastern Ohio woman charged with murder in her daughter-in-law’s strangulation was sane at the time of the death, a judge ruled yesterday.

Hocking County Common Pleas Judge John T. Wallace said he will now schedule a trial date for Sandra K. “Sandy” Inman, without delay.

Inman, 46, had pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity in the March 22 kidnapping and murder of Summer Inman, 25, from outside the bank in downtown Logan where she was working as a janitor.

Her body was found a week later in a church septic tank near Nelsonville in Athens County. She had been strangled with a plastic zip tie.

The judge ruled in November that Inman was competent to stand trial after two psychologists evaluated her and found her competent.

Wallace cited the competency conclusions yesterday, plus his own courtroom conversations with and observations of Inman in ruling that she was sane at the time of Summer Inman’s death.

The husband and father-in-law of Summer Inman, William A. “Will” Inman II, 26, and William A. “Bill” Inman, 47, have been indicted on aggravated-murder charges and could face the death penalty. Sandra Inman could face 15 years to life if convicted.

Will and Summer Inman were divorcing and arguing about child custody after she left him last year. Her parents have custody of the three children.
