    Murder suspect was long 'on a bad path'
    In the days ahead of his 30th birthday, not much was going right in Matthew J. Hoffman's already troubled life.
    He and his girlfriend, who accused him of choking her during an argument at his home on Oct. 24, had broken up. She feared she might die.
    A few days later, he lost his part-time tree-trimming job at Fast Eddy's after creeping out his supervisor and overselling his experience.
    Money was a constant concern. Besides the bills accompanying day-to-day life, he owed $2 million in restitution for setting fire to a condominium complex in Colorado.

    Saturday night at Reynoldsburg High School, nearly 50 miles from where a child and two women were murdered, and another child bound and gagged in a basement, nearly 100 people came out to just be together and to think of their friend.

    The father of Kody Maynard, the 11 year old boy who was killed last week, is the son of Larry Maynard, a 1997 graduate of Reynoldsburg, High School.
    "Larry was a great friend of mine,” said Becky Lucas.” I grew up with him, spent every single day in high school with him and this to happen is just heart breaking."
