More than two decades after the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office began a search on the grounds of Fox Hollow Farm in Westfield, the coroner's office is seeking DNA from descendants of possible victims to identify more remains in the case. In the summer of 1996, the office found more than 25 bodies reduced to charred and decomposing remains on the 18-acre site off 156th Street in Westfield. The land owner, Herbert 'Herb' Baumeister, was believed responsible for the deaths of the victims who were mostly young, gay men that he lured to his property, according to the coroner.
