Blurb: When a man is faced with divorce and child support for three children, things go from worse to unimaginable. This is the case that ripped a small Ohio town apart. How can a man claiming to love his wife, help plan her kidnapping that turns into a murder? With a father in law that valued money and possessiveness over life and happiness, always expect the worse.
Excerpt: In an incorporation document filed with the Ohio Secretary of State’s Office, Bill listed himself as leader of Mercy Tabernacle Church, a nonprofit organization, “to help people who have lost their jobs or been cut back on hours keep their homes.”
According to neighbors, he considered the Hamden farmhouse and lands a ranch. According to neighbors, Bill often went door-to-door soliciting donations for what he called “Mercy Ranch,” a plan to turn his home into a place for the “wayward and homeless.”
The FBI were brought it to help in the disappearance and after contacting the Bureau of Motor Vehicles, learned Bill Inman recently purchased a white Crown Victoria, and had relatives in the Akron and Cleveland, Ohio area.
Debra Cook immediately provided Logan Police Chief Aaron Miller with Will’s cell phone number. Numerous attempts to reach Will were made by the chief, but Will did not return the calls until the day after Summer’s disappearance.
According to the chief, during this nineteen minute call, Will claimed not knowing where Summer was, and of being broke down on the Cleveland freeway during the time of Summer’s disappearance. Will’s attitude of having a missing wife was very “unconcerned” and “matter-of-fact,” said the chief. The Logan Police Department then requested Will’s cell phone records from AT&T.
According to Columbus Police Officer Robert Moledor, a member of the Violent Crimes Task Force, he was contacted to assist in the investigation because of his extensive knowledge and training about cell phones and service towers. Based on Moledor’s analysis of two phones which were later identified as belonging to William Inman and his son William Inman II, Moledor testified that both cell phones traveled from Northeast Ohio on March 22, 2011 to Logan and then to Nelsonville before returning to Akron the following day.
If Summer’s husband and in-laws were unconcerned with finding her, the community of Logan was not. Immediately Summer’s church and other houses of worship held prayer and candlelight vigils for the missing mother.
Summer’s friends and family, including fiancé Adam Peters, worked with social networking programs such as face book and twitter, in the hope someone knew her whereabouts.
According to friends of the couple, even though Summer and Will were not legally divorced, they prepared to wed as soon as her signature dried on her divorce papers. Summer had met Adam through her husband, when the men became friends while both attended Hocking College.
