Sarah Buzzard Wiki – Sarah Buzzard Biography
Sarah Buzzard was charged in case of human remains found in Ohio. Mercer County police say they have arrested a woman in connection with the murder of a 22-year-old whose remains were found in Ohio in 2016.
During a press conference regarding the homicide of Ryan Zimmerman, whose remains were found in 2016 at an Ohio state park, Mercer County Sheriff Jeff Grey said two women had been named as suspects in the case.
She is 33n years old.
Ryan Zimmerman Murder
Ryan Zimmerman, who had recently moved from Kentucky to Columbus, Ohio, stopped communicating with his parents in September 2015. They reported him missing in November when his father got an impound notice about the car his son had been driving, as CrimeOnline previously reported.
Four years after human bones were found at the park, DNA testing led authorities to identify them as belonging to Ryan Zimmerman of Columbus, Ohio.
Zimmerman was reported as missing in the fall of 2015.
Sarah Buzzard Arrested
Ohio police say they have charged Buzzard with the death of a 22-year-old man reported missing in 2015 and found dead in a western Ohio state park two months later.
In January of the following year, a woman walking her dog in Grand Lake St Marys State Park stumbled across mutilated human remains. Still, detectives were unable to identify the body. It wasn’t until last year that forensics testing comparing water samples from the bones to dirt samples from across the country pointed investigators toward Corbin, Kentucky. Zimmerman’s missing person’s report matched the body, and DNA from his parents made a match.
On Jan. 3, 2016, a woman walking her dog stumbled upon skeletal remains in a wooded area near Grand Lake St. Marys State Park in Ohio, just south of Coldwater Creek road, and called 911.
Eventually, investigators matched the DNA from the missing person case to the bones found in the state park.
Mercer County (Ohio) Sheriff Jeff Grey said Thursday morning that Sarah Buzzard, 33, and her wife Naria Jenna Whittaker were named as suspects, WPTA reported. Buzzard was arrested Wednesday on four counts of tampering with evidence, one count of grand auto theft, and two counts of abuse of a corpse. More charges are likely, he said.
The sheriff said investigators served multiple search warrants on tech companies, including some Grey admitted he had never heard of. Based on their evidence, they determined where Zimmerman was killed and that possible suspects lived in Marion, Indiana. They also interviewed a witness residing in North Carolina.
Police have not revealed a motive in the case. Buzzard is scheduled to appear in court Friday.
