I cannot believe that something like this is happening. Yes, it happens every day, in every country, but it's hitting me hard because I live so close to where everything is happening.

I am praying, along with my husband and family, that the 3 other people are alive and found soon. God can do ANYTHING, people. We all need to have FAITH.

If it is true he did this, and they indeed have passed away, he deserves to be put in the middle of downtown Mt. Vernon and let a mob take care of him. Don't waste taxpayers money on this monster. Although, since he hurt children, maybe he should go to prision and they'll make sure he gets his due.....

did you notice during the press conference that when a reporter asked him if they had evidence of homicide, he said no but shook his head yes?

I pray that the remaining three people missing are found safe and found soon. I also pray that this young lady heals from the torture that she has endured. If it almost seems sureal to me, I can't begin to imagine what she has and continues to go through. What a crazed animal this man is. I also can't help but to wonder if his parents live on the same street as the missing woman and her children, then wouldn't they have noticed their son in the area, his car, something?!

Has anyone checked and/or commented about the ashes and remains from the big fire that he had in the backyard except for the remark about some tree limbs?

what a strange, horrible case. the girl should know something about the others. must be others involved. practically impossible for one person to kill or hide 3 people with little evidence.

as a father of five, this story rips my heart out.If he murdered those ladies and that little boy, the death penalty would be too good for him...there is a special place in Hell for him.

I too have five and it rips my heart too. I hope we are all wrong and they are found safe but, my feeling is they are not. I pray for the little girl that survived and wonder, how did this guy come in contact with this family? Hopefully law enforcement is looking into internet and cell phone activity on all of five of them. Again, I hope we are all wrong and they are found well.

Why is the news so splattered.
I realize that the sherrif needs to maintain an order so that an airtight confiction can be upheld. Everything is so hush.....hush....
What was this Hoffman's relation to that family? What lead them to Hoffman in the first place? What park are they searching?
Of course the girl hasn't said much, I am sure that he has threatened her that if she squeeks her family will die.
Who was "the friend" the ex-boyfriend spent the night with? Was that an unusal act? I have to admit, he does NOT look like a golfer to me.
I am not a local but following the case, so any new info is interesting.

It is an ongoing investigation, and the police aren't sure if he acted alone or if someone else was involved...that's why they won't release many details. Lots of times killers have pretty much sealed their own fate by calling the police "out of concern and maybe I did see something" and mention things that were never released to the press...basically, something only the police and the killer know.

The minute I heard "extraordinary amount of blood found" I had a bad feeling about the fate of the other three people. But if I am lucky, I will be wrong!

He just recently bought a tarp......very good thing that the police found Sarah when they did, poor kid.
