Brother: Dead man wouldn't have used craigslist

COLUMBUS, Ohio - His brother says a possible victim most recently linked to a deadly craigslist robbery scheme in Ohio would not have used the website to look for work.

Authorities believe jobseekers were killed after being lured with a craigslist ad for a bogus farm job in southeast Ohio.

But Mark Geiger tells The Columbus Dispatch his brother was not the sort to look for work online.

A death certificate shows 55-year-old Ralph Geiger died around Aug. 9, weeks before the suspected killings of two other victims.

Investigators in the case discovered Geiger's body Nov. 25 on the same property in rural Noble County where another body was found.

Mark Geiger says people who spoke to his brother before he disappeared say he talked about going for farm work.
