    Malek: Hoffman co-operative
    Knox County Public Defender Bruce Malek, currently the attorney of record for alleged kidnapper Matthew Hoffman, told the News he did not see a need for Tuesday’s scheduled preliminary hearing regarding the kidnapping charge.
    “It comes down to an issue of probable cause,” said Malek on the decision to waive the hearing. “Under these circumstances, we didn’t feel there was any reason to go forward with a hearing. We would have expected the prosecutor to put forth minimal evidence.”
    The purpose of the hearing was to determine if the prosecution has ample evidence to continue holding Hoffman in the Knox County Jail under the $1 million bond set forth by Mount Vernon Municipal Court Judge Paul Spurgeon on Nov. 16. Preliminary hearings are held when cases have not yet been taken to the grand jury for an indictment.

    FBI receiving inquiries about Hoffman
    Since the arrest of Matthew Hoffman on kidnapping charges last week, FBI agent Harry Trombitas, who aided the Knox County Sheriff’s Office in the case, has received several inquiries about Hoffman.
    “I have gotten a call or two,” Trombitas said. “One was from in state and one from out of state. It’s not so much that they suspected Hoffman was involved in their homicides but if we would develop any information that he might be involved in anything else to keep them in mind.”

    Horrific killings raise perplexing issue of evil
    Many people, upon hearing about the horrific violence inflicted on two Knox County women and an 11-year-old boy, have asked the simple, but perhaps unanswerable, question: How could anyone do this?
    Each detail about the deaths of Stephanie Sprang, Tina Herrmann and Herrmann's son, Kody Maynard, was more awful than the last. Their killer not only stabbed them to death, but also dismembered them and stashed their bodies in a hollow tree.
    The police could explain the chain of events, and the coroner could provide the autopsy reports. But no one could answer the real question on everyone's mind:
    How could anyone be so evil?

    Only one other burglary linked to Hoffman
    On Oct. 13, 2010, John Nussbaum returned home to find his garage had been burglarized.
    “I don’t remember everything that was taken,” Nussbaum told the News. “My golf clubs were taken. And some of my deer hunting stuff — my bow and my deer stand were taken. There were some personal items taken from the house, some silver and sports memorabilia.”
    Nussbaum’s stolen property was recovered almost exactly a month later when the Knox County Sheriff’s Office raided the home of Matthew Hoffman on Columbus Road as part of the then Apple Valley missing persons investigation.
    Although Hoffman was charged with aggravated burglary in Tina Herrmann’s residence at 481 King Beach Drive, the Nussbaum burglary was not included in the indictments.
