WAVERLY, Ohio (WCMH and WPTA) - The daughter of a missing Ohio man said she was told he had been cut up in a chipper and fed to hogs.

NBC 4 reports that 42-year-old Raymont Willis disappeared from his Waverly, Ohio, home on July 4, 2020. They say his disappearance is connected to another man, Koby Roush, who disappeared the following day and was also allegedly fed to pigs, through a man named Luke Farmer.

The Ross County Sheriff’s Office said Luke Farmer was wanted for questioning on July 20, 2020, in the disappearance and possible murder of two people in Pike County. A report by the office named Roush and Willis in the documents, but neither of their bodies have been found. NBC 4 reports that Farmer died of a drug overdose 11 hours after police searched for him.

Willis’ daughter, Brittney Hewell, said someone whispered to her while she was sitting in a car saying, “I know where your dad is.” She said she was told her father was cut up in a chipper and fed to hogs and that she went to search for him but was afraid for her safety, NBC 4 reports.

She said she last heard from her father on July 4 after his home was raided by police on July 1, which turned up a shotgun and small amounts of marijuana. Volunteers made a list of places Willis frequented, including the place he was last seen, but he was never found.

“I just want closure. I can’t be satisfied about the situation. … It’s different having an obituary than a missing paper. All I have is a missing paper of him, " Brittney said to NBC 4. “It’s hard to keep going on with life knowing that he’s somewhere out there…and no one’s trying to bother to find him or anything.”
