Family and friends of a man who is believed to have been bludgeoned to death will meet Sunday to search for his body.
Volunteers will meet at 12:30 p.m. at Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4906, 2161 Consaul St. in East Toledo, which is just feet from where police believe Brian Martin was killed June 22.
Police have charged Robert and Desirae Strauss, both 36, of 2140 Consaul with murder. They believe the couple bludgeoned Mr. Martin to death in their first-floor apartment.
Mr. Martin’s body has not been found, but police believe the body may be in a barn or shed somewhere between Toledo and Anderson, Ind. They have asked for the public’s help in searching.
“We are looking for as many volunteers as possible to come out and help us,” Mr. Martin’s cousin, Michele Flynn, said in an email appeal for help.
The family also has created a Facebook page, Help Find Brian Martin, to assist with the search.
