Cheryl Coker Obituary, Death – The investigation into the disappearance of a woman from Riverside that began four years ago is still ongoing. After delivering her daughter to Stebbins High School on October 2, 2018, Riverside resident Cheryl Coker was last seen alive. She had been missing since that day. The Riverside Police Department stated in February 2019 that the investigation into Coker’s disappearance was now being treated as a possible homicide and implicated her husband William Coker as a suspect in the case.
William has not been accused of any wrongdoing in connection with the investigation. In April of 2020, two years after her disappearance, her skeletal remains were discovered in a forested area in Greene County. Coker’s death may have been the result of homicidal violence, according to the findings of an autopsy report that was examined by News Center 7, but the medical examiner was unable to determine the precise reason of her passing. According to a statement made by a detective working for the Riverside police department, “the matter is still currently under investigation and we are still doing a lot of work on it.”
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is the primary investigative agency working on this matter. A spokeswoman for the company issued a statement stating that the situation “remains open and the investigation is underway.” On the one year anniversary of her sister Cheryl Coker’s disappearance, Margie Kennan, Cheryl Coker’s sister, gave an interview to WHIO-TV. “I find it impossible to realize that it has already been four years since Cheryl passed away. We yearn for the love, laughing, and fun that she brought.
“I have high hopes that one day justice will triumph,” she remarked. If you have any information regarding this investigation, you can provide it to the BCI by calling (800) 282-3782 or by submitting it online here. Anonymous tips can be submitted if desired.
