    Cheryl Coker (46) found dead a year and a half after she went missing

    https://abc22now.com/news/local/rive...iverside-woman

    Riverside Police and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation executed a search warrant at the residence of a missing Riverside mother Tuesday whose disappearance is being considered suspicious.

    Cheryl Coker was last seen by her daughter on October 2 around 7:30 a.m. Riverside Police said searching her residence was per standard protocol, because Coker was believed to have been home after dropping her daughter off at school, not due to suspicion of foul play at her residence. They did not release if anything was found at the house.

    46-year-old Cheryl Coker has been missing for more than a week now.

    Her car was discovered in a shopping center parking lot. Her car's arrival to the lot was picked up by Joe Brumley's security cameras at his store, Computer Network Accessories.

    "We were in the back unloading a truck. So it happened right out front," Brumley said.

    However his store cameras do not show who exactly was in the car and what happened to them.

    Coker's cell phone and purse were still inside the car, but she was nowhere to be found.

    In this surveillance video: Coker's car can be seen driving down Spinning Road before entering the back of the parking lot and pulling into a parking space and stopping.

    But because there wasn't enough motion on the screen, the motion-activated cameras don't pick up who left the car.

    "One camera was set to record, constantly. One camera - which was actually Clancy's [Tavern] camera - was set to only motion record so when the car pulled in, there's a few seconds where they don't get out of the car and there's no movement on the screen and the recorder shut off," Brumley said.

    "The person must not have gotten out of the car and went left or right, I think they would have went the other direction. It just wasn't enough movement for the cameras to come back on."

    Right by my house. Haven't heard any local gossip yet. Riverside is half trash and half Wright Patt Air Force Base. It's a weird area.

    Okay I just watched the surveillance video and what bothers me is the video stops recording right before whoever is driving gets out of the vehicle. The business owner of the camera says it's a motion detection camera so that's why it stops recording when the car stops moving. Not only does that seem weird but the lot is packed, there was no other movement AT ALL in the lot? Hmmm...

    But I'm sure the police would look into the claims that it is a motion detector camera so maybe it's nothing but it makes me raise one eye brow.

    The search for a missing Riverside woman is now approaching three weeks, and the call for answers is intensifying. Riverside Police says they're aggressively pursuing every lead possible. Every single detective is working on the case, but there's still no word on where Cheryl Coker may be.

    Detective Travis Abney says, "It's still a mystery, but we don't have any concerns that she was abducted at this point."

    The 46-year-old Coker disappeared three weeks ago; last seen on October 2. Detective Abney says every available department resource is focusing on this case: "All the detectives are working as many hours as we possibly can, which has pretty much been full-time for us at this point. Our supervisors have been helping out as well."

    Hours of surveillance video footage has been reviewed, and countless leads pursued, but still no progress.

    A missing Ohio woman’s husband has been named the “one and only” suspect months after she mysteriously disappeared after dropping her child off at school.

    Riverside Police are now considering the case a homicide and don’t believe Cheryl Coker, 46, is still alive, according to WDTN.

    Police are continuing to investigate all possibilities but said Coker’s husband of 19 years, William Coker, is the only suspect at this time and claimed he has “been reluctant” to take a polygraph test.

    Investigators also said Coker had only called once to request an update on the case in the four months since Coker disappeared on Oct. 2.

    Riverside police detective Travis Abney said “the facts and the evidence surrounding this case makes him our prime focus at this time,” according to WHIO.

    From Rbw’s link:
    “She was behaving in some risky behavior right before she disappeared and I haven’t really been willing to put that out there,” he told the station.
    Of course the guilty husband is bad mouthing his wife. He did it.

    Bones found in Greene County over the weekend today were identified as those of Cheryl Coker, a Riverside woman missing for more than a year, Greene County Sheriff Gene Fischer announced during a press conference.

    Her birthday was this past Friday. She would’ve been 48 years old.

    “We have never given up on this case,” said Riverside Police Chief Frank Robinson. “She’s never been forgotten by the community.”

    The area where her body found was a wooded area, Fischer said. It’s private property and “not a common area for a person to go to.”

    Clothing found with her remains have been turned over to the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation.

    There is no evidence that her body had been buried, investigators said.

    “There’s a lot of work still to be done,” Fischer noted, adding that cadaver dogs had been at the scene today.

    While an exact cause and manner of death were unable to be determined, coroner’s office investigators suggested the death of Cheryl Coker is related to foul play, according to an autopsy report obtained Friday by News Center 7.

    “Due to the condition of the remains, near complete skeletonization, the precise cause of death could not be determined,” the report read. “However, the circumstances surrounding the disappearance as developed by law enforcement investigators, and death, as the post mortem changes are consistent with the time period and clothing is reported to be what was worn at the time of the disappearance, suggest the cause of death is related to foul play and as such a common term used to certify the cause of death is homicidal violence of unknown etiology.”

    Cheryl Coker’s remains were found off Waynesville Jamestown Road in April. She had been missing since October 2018.

    The autopsy findings do not end the chances of possible prosecution for her death.

    “The ruling of undetermined cause and undetermined manner actually keeps the door open for prosecutors and investigators to continue their investigation,” said Greene County Coroner Dr. Kevin Sharrett. “By ruling undetermined it allows us to participate in the investigation ongoing and as further information becomes available, we can certainly reevaluate and take another look at the information we have on hand and certainly can amend that.”

    Cheryl Coker’s family is in the process of planning a Christian burial for her, however a date has not been scheduled yet. Her remains were released to the family yesterday.

    The autopsy also said there is no reported history to suggest the remains were taken to the wooden area where they were found “for any other purpose but to conceal the death.”

    Cheryl Coker’s remains were identified by using dental records and implanted medical hardware in the spine, the report shows.

    According to the autopsy report, Cheryl Coker’s remains were clothed. One of her shoes and a “string of unknown significance” were later recovered.

    There also was significant animal activity with the bones, but no clear trauma observed. The hyoid bone, which is a u-shaped bone situated at the root of the tongue and in front of the neck, was not found, the report read.

    In June, the Riverside Police Department requested the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation to become the lead investigating agency in the Cheryl Coker case.

    “With Mrs. Coker’s remains being located in another county, it is the combined belief that the best course of action is for Riverside Police Department to fully utilize the vast resources of the (Ohio) Bureau of Criminal Investigation and Identification in the pursuit of justice,” the department said in a statement in June. “The Riverside Police Department will still be involved in the day-to-day investigation.”

    Cheryl Coker’s bones were found by a man who was mushroom hunting. He told dispatchers some clothing also was found in the field near the bones.

    “It’s not a common area for someone to go to,” Greene County Sheriff Gene Fischer said. “This happened to be some woods and some overgrowth in the area.”

    Search warrants were executed in February 2020 in the Cheryl Coker homicide investigation, Riverside police said a year after Cheryl Coker’s husband Bill Coker was named a suspect in her case. Bill Coker has not been charged

    Investigation after her disappearance painted a picture of a troubled relationship with her husband leading to a recent filing for divorce.

    Professional searches from the Midwest chapter of Texas Equusearch made multiple sweeps of targeted areas but didn’t find her.

    Bill Coker has maintained his innocence, but in October Cheryl Coker’s family said they don’t believe it.
