The April 21 crash happened eastbound on Interstate 275 in Wilder. Police officers spotted Sherry's car off the highway into a woods. Ransdell, 37, of Florence, was found dead underneath the vehicle. The Campbell County coroner ruled he died of blunt force trauma.
Ransdell made headlines and provoked anger with his involvement in Northern Kentucky with the National Alliance. He ran an anti-Semitic write-in campaign for U.S. Senate in Kentucky in 2014 against U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell. Ransdell's campaign slogan was "With Jews, we lose."
Ransdell was the Cincinnati coordinator of the National Alliance.From the Enquirer archives, Robert Ransdell can be seen taking part in this protest at a press conference at Great American Ball Bark in 2015. The Enquirer/Glenn Hartong
The Southern Poverty Law Center described the National Alliance as one of the "most dangerous and best-organized neo-Nazi" organizations in America for decades.
The organization's ideology calls for the eradication of the Jews and other groups for the "creation of an all-white homeland."
Sherry remains in the Campbell County Detention on $2 million bond.
