The body of an Ohio mother missing for over a week has been found in the septic tank of a church.
Logan, Ohio, police say Summer Inman, 25, was found Tuesday evening in the septic system behind a rural church. Police indicated that Summer’s mother-in-law, Sandra Inman, spoke with her attorney and then provided the details as to where Summer’s body was located, according to NBC-4.
The Hocking County coroner indicated that Summer was killed almost immediately after her disappearance on March 22. A cause of death has not yet been released.
Investigators say that the mother of 3 was abducted by her estranged husband, William Inman II, along with Sandra and her husband, William Inman. All three were arrested, and are currently in the Southeast Ohio Regional Jail.
Summer and the younger William were married in 2004 and together for 6 years, but separated in 2010. Summer also reportedly filed for a civil protection order, claiming her husband “threatened to kill” her. She also claimed William would frequently hold her “captive” in their house, by taking her wallet, cell phone and car keys.
Summer also indicated her fear of her in-laws, saying they would join their son and “gang up” on her and “try to get me to just work things out.”
A friend of Sandra told a reporter that Sandra was “very distraught” over her son’s divorce, and that if she had any part of the kidnapping and murder, “she was forced” to do it, according to WBNS.
Investigators also released video from a surveillance camera at an area car wash showing the Inmans cleaning out the inside of their car the day after Summer’s kidnapping. They said the Inmans may have also stopped at two other car washes.
In interviews with neighbors, they described the elder William Inman as “hyper, controlling and scary,” and that he was the clear “ruler” of the family.
