LOGAN, Ohio - Every day during the week that Summer Inman was missing, her 71-year-old grandmother talked to her, willing her to come home to her family.
"I told her, 'Hang in there.' I would say, 'Hang tough, Summer,'" said Herberta Chambers of Logan.
Authorities found the body of Summer Inman, 25, on Tuesday night, after her mother-in-law - charged in her disappearance - told authorities where to look.
The body was inside a buried septic tank behind Faith Tabernacle Church, along Rt.33 near Nelsonville. There was a lid atop the tank.
The Athens County coroner said Inman was strangled by a rope or a cord.
The abomination of someone putting her granddaughter's body into the filth and waste of a septic tank floored Chambers.
