The amateur fighter, whose older brother Matt Masterson has compiled a 9-3 professional record, allegedly engaged in a fight over the weekend while attending a party on the island. According to a report from the Sandusky Register, Masterson, 25, allegedly fought at the party with 27-year-old Zachary Brody.
Both men reportedly went their separate ways following the altercation, but Masterson went missing shortly thereafter. On Monday, Masterson's mother reported her son's absence to Put-in-Bay police, stating he'd been missing for approximately 18 hours. The fighter's family then reportedly went looking for Masterson on South Bass Island on Tuesday, eventually finding him dead and calling 911. According to the report, Ottawa County sheriff Robert Bratton stated that Masterson appeared to have been severely beaten prior to his death.
Bowling Green police reportedly arrested Brody on Wednesday while walking near his home on charges of murder, voluntary manslaughter and felonious assault.
Brody's bail was set at $750,000 at a Thursday morning hearing at the Ottawa County Municipal Court. As Brody's family is reportedly still in the process of acquiring Brody an attorney, the remainder of the hearing has been postponed until Sept. 14 at 8:30 a.m.view original article >>
