MOUNT VERNON — Matthew Hoffman parked his Toyota Yaris at the Kokosing Gap Trail in Howard and walked to King Beach Drive where he slept in a sleeping bag in a wooded area across the street from Tina Herrmann's home, a house he planned to rob the next day.

    Hoffman is a total, absolute, evil man. A normal person could not commit a act of murder the way he did in such a gruesome way, then stop & buy Mc Donalds ,& eat it with a victim as if nothing ever happened.nnAnd not to even mention how he went to bed & slept, as if nothing happened. But the prisons are full of his kind. The world is a scary, dangerous place to be trapped sometimes. This man has the devil inside of him.

    I would have driven to the prison and injected him for free while whispering in his ear “go to hell scumbag”
