Brother: Fake Ohio farm job would have seemed like perfect fit for possible Craigslist victim
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) ' The brother of a possible victim in a deadly Craigslist robbery scheme says an Ohio farm job used to lure victims would have been a perfect fit for his brother.
Mark Geiger says Ralph Geiger was an experienced handyman who was around animals his whole life. Mark Geiger says he's certain his brother was a victim of the Craigslist scam but says he thinks Ralph Geiger learned of the job somewhere else.
Geiger says he doesn't believe the Craigslist ad was running when his brother left Akron for the southeastern Ohio farm position, which didn't exist.
A death certificate shows 55-year-old Ralph Geiger died around Aug. 9, weeks before the suspected killings of two other victims and the wounding of a third.
