Follow-up to Craigslist "killer Job"
First post....I noticed this thread:
Luckily this person escaped...police in Ohio have another case in which a body was found after someone from Florida responded to the same ad:
<B>Sheriff not confirming info on Craigslist suspects</b>
CALDWELL, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio sheriff won't confirm that a 52-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy are the suspects taken into custody after a man who responded to a Craigslist job ad was found dead in a shallow grave.
Noble County Sheriff Stephen Hannum indicated in an email Friday that he wasn't ready to identify the pair. The sheriff's office said Hannum would release more information at 11 a.m. EST.
The Akron Beacon Journal reported on the suspects' ages and said the man was from Akron and the boy was an area high school student.
The Florida man's body was found this week in a remote area about 80 miles east of Columbus.
Hannum says another jobseeker from South Carolina who responded to the same bogus Craigslist ad was shot but escaped.
And another potential applicant tells his story. He avoided death when he wasn't selected for the position:
<B>Summit County man says he interviewed for the deadly craigslist job</b>

STOW, Ohio - A Summit County, Ohio man said he answered a deadly craigslist ad and was interviewed at an area mall by one of the suspects now in custody.
He thought it was his dream job -- to watch over 688 acres of farmland south of Cambridge, Ohio and live in a two-bedroom trailer rent free and utilities paid.
"That would have been the perfect job for me," Ron Sanson said. "I would love something like that."
Sanson, who lives in Stow, answered an ad for the job on craigslist in early October and was pleased when he was called for an interview. What he didn't know then is that a Florida man who also answered the ad would be found dead in a shallow grave in Noble County and a South Carolina man who also answered the ad would be shot and wounded.
Sanson said he believes the man who interviewed him on Oct. 10 in the food court at the Chapel Hill Mall was Richard Beasley, a suspect in the craigslist case.
He said Beasley told him he was looking for an older, single man for the job. Sanson is 58. He said Beasley showed up for the interview with a binder containing job applications and said he was going to conduct five interviews that day.
"He seemed OK," Sanson said.
Sanson was never offered the job. He heard about the craigslist case and that Beasley is a suspect this past weekend. And in spite of his close call with the case, Sanson, who has been out of work for four years, still searches the want ads on the Internet site every other day.
"Gotta find work someplace," he said.
