The father of a teenager died on the same day his daughter was allegedly killed five years earlier. Timothy Hoffman, 58, died on June 2, 2024, during a memorial ride for his daughter in Alaska.

It was the fifth death anniversary of his daughter, Cynthia Hoffman. He lost control of his vehicle near mile 49 of the Parks Highway, the Alaska State Troopers stated in a press release. Timothy Hoffman was not alone and was accompanied by his wife, Barbara “Jeanie” Hoffman.

Timothy was announced dead after being taken to the hospital while Jeanie remains in critical condition, People reported.

Alaska State Police stated that Timothy was not wearing his helmet when he veered off the left shoulder of the road and rolled into the center median.

The passenger on the bike was later identified as Jeanie Hoffman, Anchorage Daily News reported. Police officials noted that she was wearing a full-face helmet. Both were found unresponsive on the scene and were taken to the hospital for further treatment, People reported.

Jeanine remains critically injured with a fractured skull, broken back, and broken bones, Anchorage Daily News reported. Tanya Chaison, the fiancée of Hoffman's twin brother told the outlet that Jeanine had surgery on Sunday, the first of many she would need to make a full recovery.


Cynthia Hoffman became a victim of a murder-for-hire scheme when she was lured for a hike by Denali Dakota Skye Brehmer and Kayden McIntosh, according to CBS. Brehmer, then 18, struck up a relationship with 21-year-old Darin Schilmiller, who was living in Indiana, the outlet reported.

Schilmiller claimed that he was a millionaire and said he would send Brehmer $9 million if she sent him photos and videos of killing anyone, CBS reported. Schilmiller reportedly did not name any particular person as the target.

The then 18-year-old teenager offered four acquaintances, a cut of the proposed money if they participated in the killing, CBS reported, noting it is unclear why they allegedly zeroed in on Cynthia Hoffman as the target. Cynthia Hoffman, who according to Timothy had developmental disabilities, considered Brehmer, as her best friend, Inside Edition reported.


Brehmer and McIntosh invited Cynthia Hoffman for a hike, and during it shot her in the back of the head and allegedly shoved her body into a river, CBS reported. After their daughter did not come back home, Cynthia Hoffman's family filed a missing complaint. Her body was recovered the next day, by the police officials.

In the police complaint, it is stated that Brehmer and Kayden McIntosh were the last to see Cynthia Hoffman alive. McIntosh in his statement said that the three "were hanging out and all agreed to duct tape CeeCee and take photographs."

Cynthia began to panic and threatened to "call the police on them," shared McIntosh. In his statement, he said he "blacked out", but that "he remembers shooting CeeCee and pushing her into the river," as per the police complaint.

"He remembers CeeCee twitching before he pushed her in the water and does not know if she died from the gunshot wound or from drowning," reads his statement in the police complaint.


Brehmer pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree murder and was sentenced to 99 years in jail, People reported. McIntosh pleaded guilty to one count of murder in the second degree in May, and his sentencing is scheduled to happen in November, People reported.

Alaska Department of Law in announced that Schilmiller pleaded guilty to one count of solicitation to 'commit murder in the first degree' and was sentenced to 99 years. Two other teens have also been prosecuted for their involvement in the case, Anchorage Daily News reported.

Brehmer and Schilmiller also pleaded guilty to a separate federal charge of conspiracy to produce child pornography and were sentenced to 15 years by the judge, the Department of Justice noted.
