Tina Herrmann failed to show up to work at a Dairy Queen in Mount Vernon, Ohio on Wednesday; however, the children were in school Wednesday, but not Thursday. Police went to the home Herrmann on Wednesday and saw her pickup truck in the yard, some light was on; however, no one answered the door. On Thursday, the manager of the Dairy Queen entered the home on Thursday and discovered blood and some things out of place. The blood was referred to an an“unsual” amount of blood. Investigators are testing samples the blood discovered.
The sheriff described their disappearance as a missing persons case.
“Detectives are interviewing family members, friends and acquaintances,” Barber told CNN affiliate WBNS on Saturday. “Right now, there is no indication that they were abducted.”
Herrmann failed to report to work at a Dairy Queen in Mount Vernon, in central Ohio, on Wednesday. A deputy came twice to the house and saw Herrmann’s pickup truck. Lights were on in the house, but no one answered the door, Barber said.
“There were no signs of anything out of place,” he said.
A Dairy Queen manager entered the home on Thursday and discovered the blood.
“There is blood in the house. There is a sign of injury to a person or persons,” Barber said Friday.
On Thursday, Herrmann’s pick up truck discovered Thursday night near Kenyon College in Gambier, OH which prompted a college lockdown. Police alerted the college that there might be a dangerous person in the area who might have left the vehicle of the 4 missing persons. The college lifted the lock down on Friday.
What would cause four people to simply disappear at what seems to be separate times? Tina Herrmann’s ex-boyfriend, Greg Borders, stated that the couple lived together but were in the process of breaking up … RUT-ROH! Borders said, We were fairly civil, as civil as you can be living in the same house when you’re broken up.” Um, “AS CIVIL AS YOU CAN BE”? That is hardly a good sign.
Herrmann’s boyfriend Greg Borders told the Columbus Dispatch that the couple lived together but were in process of breaking up. He last said he last heard from her Wednesday via text message.
“We were both going to go our separate ways,” he told the paper “We were fairly civil, as civil as you can be living in the same house when you’re broken up.”
What are the odds that the initial crime took place after the children had went to school on Wednesday and they came home and walked into the middle of the cover up of the crime? The fact that Herrmann’s pick up was located would indicate that they are not on the run. If this crime was committed by a stranger, why the need to move the vehicle?
