CLERMONT COUNTY, Ohio (WXIX) - The Hamilton County Coroner’s Office has identified two men that were found dead at a Clermont County trailer park early Thursday morning.

Deputies responded to Richmond Estates Mobile Home Park in the 2700 block of State Route 132 in Ohio Township just before 2 a.m. Thursday, Chief Deputy Chris Stratton says.

Pierce Township paramedics and deputies from the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office found two men dead, according to Stratton.

They were identified as 34-year-old Ryan Larison and his father, 59-year-old Rusty Larison.

Their cause of death is unknown at this time, Stratton said.

According to the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office, 20-year-old Dakota Pfeiffer has been arrested in connection with the investigation.

He is charged with tampering with evidence.

Pfeiffer appeared for his arraignment at the Clermont County Municipal Court and received a $75,000 bond.

This investigation remains ongoing.

The loss of Ryan and Rusty has still not sunk for those who were close to them.

Zoe Gill says she and Ryan went everywhere and did everything together.

“Like it’s still not processing that it’s real,” Gill said. “Like me and Ryan spent every single day together and the one time he’s not at my house this happens. The one time.”

Gill says the last she heard from Ryan was in a text message sent less than an hour before police say he and his father were killed.

“I had worked until 7 o’clock and we had been talking throughout the whole entire day and he actually texted me at 1:08 a.m. exactly,” recalled Gill. “That was the last message I got from him before I fell asleep. I didn’t get to say anything back to him. I didn’t get to respond to him because I just passed out.”

The Gills say neighbors have been dropping off items to sell for a benefit yard sale to help cover funeral expenses for Rusty and Ryan.

The yard sale at 302 Sherwood Court in Batavia runs through Sunday.
