Missing Ohio Mom Found Dead in Church Septic Tank

Comstock/Thinkstock(NELSONVILLE, Ohio) -- The missing mom from Logan, Ohio, Summer Inman, was found dead Tuesday night -- her body located by police in a septic tank behind a church.

"It would appear that she was killed very quickly...the evening of the crime," said Logan Police Chief Aaron Miller at a press conference.

Inman, a 25-year-old mother of three, disappeared last Tuesday after leaving work as a janitor at a bank.

Police arrested Inman's estranged husband and his parents last Thursday in connection with her disappearance. Summer Inman's estranged husband, William Inman II, and his parents, William and Sandra Inman, were to be arraigned on felony kidnapping charges.

None of the Inmans had been willing to cooperate with police, but authorities caught a break Tuesday when Sandra Inman said she knew the location of the body.

Police found the body after opening six screws on a steel lid sealing a septic tank behind Faith Tabernacle Church in Nelsonville, Ohio, over 20 miles from where Summer was last seen alive.

Witnesses saw two men forcing Summer Inman into a car driven by a blonde woman at around 11 p.m. on March 22, police said.

The next day, Summer Inman's estranged husband was seen taking his white Ford Crown Victoria to a car wash at 7:30 a.m. A few hours later, the family got new tires for the car.

Summer and William Inman had been going through a nasty divorce. Summer Inman filed for divorce in June of last year. She claimed in a sworn affidavit that her husband had threatened to kill her, the Columbus Dispatch reported.
