This is Tom Mongitore and his granddaughter Charisma. They just moved into their new house, which less than three years ago was the bloody scene of a triple murder.
The Mongitores moved into the Knox County house last month, after Tina Herrmann, her 11-year-old son, Kody Maynard, and their neighbor, Stephanie Sprang, were killed there. The victims’ bodies later were stuffed into a hollow tree until authorities found them.
“We want to make that a happy place again,” Tom’s wife, Bonnie Mongitore, said. “I think once everybody gets adjusted to it, I think it’s going to be OK.”

Matthew Hoffman, the tree fetishist who in November 2010 murdered three people in Knox County, Ohio, and hid their remains in a hollow tree, had made a plea deal in which he requested that that tree not be harmed.
Hoffman, who also kidnapped a 13-year-old girl, made the deal to avoid the death penalty.

He moved as if he didn’t care. He didn’t care if he was going to kill or if he would be killed.
