Tragedy After Tragedy: Motorcycle Ride Turns Fatal for Father of Murder Victim


Father of Slain Alaska Woman Dies in Motorcycle Crash on Commemorative Ride

Tragedy Revisited

Timothy Hoffman, 58, tragically lost his life during a memorial motorcycle ride on Sunday, June 2nd, while honoring the fifth anniversary of his daughter’s murder. Hoffman was a devoted advocate for Cynthia Hoffman, whose life was cut short in 2019 in a sinister plot that shook the Alaskan community.

The Catfish Scheme

Cynthia Hoffman fell victim to a chilling catfish scheme engineered by Denali Brehmer, a close friend. Brehmer began an online relationship with Darin Schilmiller, an Indiana man who posed as a millionaire. Schilmiller offered Brehmer a staggering million to murder someone and document the act with photos and videos.

Brehmer recruited four accomplices, including Kayden McIntosh, Caleb Leyland, and two juveniles, to carry out the gruesome plan. Hoffman was lured to a hiking trail under the pretense of meeting for an outdoor adventure. However, she became the unsuspecting target for the gruesome crime.

“She was a very innocent 19-year-old,” said Patrick McKay, a lead prosecutor on the case. “She thought she was going hiking with a friend and didn’t realize she was being led to her death.”

A Father’s Unwavering Pursuit

Timothy Hoffman was a tireless advocate for his daughter. He attended court hearings wearing a black leather motorcycle jacket and carrying his small support dog, Diego. McKay described Hoffman as “almost too unbelievable to be true.”

Hoffman’s sudden death during the memorial ride adds another layer of tragedy to this already heartbreaking story. His family and friends were devastated, but sources said they took solace in the fact that he passed away doing something he loved, with people he cherished.

Remembering Cynthia

Cynthia Hoffman’s memory continues to be honored. A Facebook group called “Justice for CeeCee” serves as a platform for her loved ones to share memories and support each other.

Brehmer was sentenced to 99 years in prison earlier this year, while Schilmiller received a similar sentence for his involvement. Two other individuals connected to the case are set to be sentenced later this year.

As the community remembers Cynthia and mourns Timothy, they also reiterate the importance of raising awareness about the dangers lurking online.
