Booking photos have been released and bond has been set for the seven people arrested in the murder and disappearance of Iron Jailen Cannon of Akron.

The Wadsworth Police Department arrested all seven people allegedly involved in the crime on Thursday.

Justin Hornbeck, 28, of Uniontown, is charged with Cannon’s murder, gross abuse of a corpse and multiple other charges. He is behind bars in the Medina County Jail where his cash bond has been set at $1 million.

Cash bonds for Autumn Knight, Marcus Clark and Christopher Williams have also been set at $1 million for their involvement in the crime.

Samantha McCune and Antonio Moore have cash bonds set at $500,000 each.

Bond information for Tyrone Render wasn’t available on the Medina County Court website as of early Friday morning.

Prosecutors have also filed paperwork that none of the defendants have any contact with each other. Court dates have not been set yet.

Cannon, of Akron, was last seen in Wadsworth on October 18, 2020, where authorities say he was shot and killed. “Throughout the investigation, detectives learned of an intricate cover-up, which consisted of significant efforts to mislead law enforcement,” Chief Dan Chafin said in a news release Thursday morning. “These efforts included the destruction of and tampering with evidence, including Mr. Cannon’s remains.”

A reward of $2,500 is still available for information that leads to the location and recovery of Cannon’s remains. Tips can be made to Crime Stoppers at (216) 252-7563 or www.25crime.com to be directed to the Crime Stoppers online tip submission form.
