Another Craigslist Ad Victim?
The father of a Massillon man said his son answered an ad for a job down in Noble County and has been missing since Nov. 13.
While a 52-year-old Akron man and a 16-year-old Stow-Munroe Falls High School student sit behind bars during an attempted murder investigation, a Massillon father said his son may have been a third victim in the Craigslist ad case.
In an Associated Press story, the Akron Beacon Journal reports that Jack Kern's 47-year-old son, Timothy Kern, of Massillon, was promised $300 a week, a trailer and a truck for the job near Caldwell, OH in Noble County in a Craigslist ad.
A 16-year-old former Stow-Munroe Falls High School student was charged with attempted murder and complicity to attempted murder by authorities investigating a murder and shooting in Caldwell, OH.
A gag order was issued by Noble County Judge John Nau shortly after the charges were announced.
A Florida man was killed and a man from South Carolina was shot after answering and meeting someone from a Craigslist job ad for work on an Ohio cattle farm, according to Noble County Sheriff Stephen Hannum.
The body of the Florida man was found in a shallow grave and the South Carolina man was shot in the arm, according to authorities.
The Akron man, Richard Beasley, is in Summit County Jail on $1 million bond for unrelated prostitution charges. He has not been charged for anything related to the Craigslist investigation as of Nov. 22.
The teen's mother told 19 Action News that Beasley was a trusted family friend for 20 years.
