Obsessed with trees and leaves
Matthew Hoffman, a former tree cutter, killed a family (Tina H., her son Kody M. and family friend Stephanie S.) and a dog on the 10th of November, 2010 by stabbing them to death. He later dismembered the bodies and stuffed them in a hollow tree. Matthew also had kidnapped a 13-year old girl (Sarah M.) and had raped her multiple times in his home.
When police entered his home, they were surprised by the amount of leaves that were in there. There was a huge pile of leaves in the middle of his living room, plastic bags full of leaves in his bathroom and he slept on a bed made out of leaves.
Matthew Hoffman was sentenced to life in prison without parole.
