    OH - Pike County: 8 people from one family dead as police hunt for killer(s) #4

    PIKE COUNTY, Ohio (WSAZ) -- An act of violence that has shaken the small community of Piketon in Pike County, Ohio is leaving many in disbelief.

    Eight people, including a teenager, were all killed execution-style in four separate locations Friday in the Peebles area of Pike County, Ohio near the Adams County line Friday.

    Shootings with multiple fatalities reported in southern Ohio

    CINCINNATI - A shooting involving multiple fatalities was reported in rural Ohio on Friday morning, but details on the number of deaths and the whereabouts of the suspect or suspects weren't immediately clear.

    The attorney general's office said a dozen Bureau of Criminal Investigation agents had been called to Pike County, an economically struggling area in the Appalachian region some 80 miles east of Cincinnati. Spokesman Dan Tierney says the Pike County sheriff's office requested state help at 8:20 a.m.

    Tierney had no information on whether a suspect was in custody. He also had no confirmation on the number of fatalities...

    PIKE COUNTY, OH (WCMH/WDTN) — The Pike County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed that there were seven adults and one 16-year-old juvenile who were killed execution-style Friday late morning. They were all members of the same family. Death notifications were still being made Friday night.

    Three children survived; a 4-day-old, 6-month-old and 3-year-old. The newborn’s mother is among those victims shot. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said it does not appear any of the victims committed suicide.

    A victim's advocate provided a short statement on behalf of the Rhoden family Saturday afternoon.

    "The Rhoden family would like to thank everyone for all the outpouring for prayers and support for their family," she read. "They ask that you continue to keep them in your prayers. They'd like to thank all law enforcement from Pike County and all surrounding counties for their immediate response, especially to Sheriff Charlie Reader for all his hard work."

    http://www.chillicothegazette.com/st...l-22/83380444/

    They eight victims have been identified as: recent-father and husband-to-be Frankie Rhoden and his 20-year-old fiancee Hannah Hazel Gilley; 22-year-old mother Hanna May Rhoden; grandmother-to-be Dana Lynn Rhoden, 37; 16-year-old Chris Rhoden Jr; 40-year-old Chris Rhoden Sr; 38-year-old Gary Rhoden and 44-year-old Kenneth Rhoden.

    [...]

    During a news conference on Friday evening, Attorney General Mike DeWine said authorities have interviewed more than 30 people and will talk to more of them as the investigation continues.

    'We will continue until the case is solved. We do not know whether we're talking about one individual or two or three or more,' DeWine added.
    No person of interest has been apprehended and investigators are looking at different theories.

    They believe the killers targeted the family specifically, and DeWine said there was no indication of a threat towards the rest of the community.

    The rest of the family has been in touch with the sheriff's office for their protection.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...#ixzz46h5rLZf2 (this link further describes who's who and the familial relationships of the victims to one another)

    Investigators found three marijuana “grow operations” at residences where eight family members were slain in southern Ohio, state Attorney General Mike DeWine said Sunday at a news conference.


    He didn’t say whether the marijuana was connected to the execution-style killings discovered last Friday at four residences in Piketon.

    911 Calls

    PRESSER: APRIL 24, 2016

    PRESSER: APRIL 27, 2016

    MOD NOTE
    : Tricia has given permission for sleuths to discuss the criminal records of the family members who were murdered. In light of the grow operations they may be very relevant. Please refrain from posting criminal histories of other individuals who have not been named persons of interest or suspects by LE or simply because they have the last name of the victims or may be a distant cousin or aunt. Stick with the victims for now. That may change as more develops on this case.

    MOD NOTE: Please don't speculate about the current custody of the minor children who were left alive. It is a blessing they are alive. If posting snips from articles regarding the children please redact their names. These babes are innocents. one day they will google their names. And plenty will come up. Thanks.

    MOD NOTE: Do not sleuth every Tom, Dick and Harry who was ever associated with a victim. Unless law enforcement names someone a person of interest or suspect, TOS prohibits it.

    I feel like I've learned nothing from that presser. Probably exactly the intention. Jmo.

    I don't have a problem with the press conference at all. They laid it pretty bare at the beginning. They could have just said "You all want to know things, none of those things you want to know will help us prosecute these cases, so bugger off."

    The delivery is a little awkward from time to time, but I expect that from DeWine. On a side note, the sheriff is either a huge, huge man or Mike DeWine is the size of a small ten year old.

    I sort of got the impression that they think the perps are well known by the family, either in their competition circle, or closer. That being said, I think a lot of people may suspect they know who but are afraid to say. JMO

    So, on his Friday, April 22 presser, he mentioned that the county is small and the he "knows the family"...does he mean, he knows OF them, I guess?

    I don't know what to think. I've run every scenario through my head from cartels to jealous lovers.
    I don't understand why DR moved closer to CR1. I don't understand why BJM was employed by her ExBIL as a housekeeper/maid.
    I am beginning to wonder if there was a relationship budding there or an affair that split DR and CR1 up. If so, is it relevant?
    We can all pretty much agree that it was someone known to the dogs at least, but then where are the dogs?
    Is it possible that the dogs were killed and LE hasn't found them yet?
    Then there is HR and her child. Why are some of the children with the State and not relatives? Is the family trying to at least get custody of HR's baby? If not, why? What about FR & HG's baby? Who has him/her?
    I don't like that the state seems to think the next of kin aren't "safe" or whatever enough to surrender the kids.

    I find it interesting the cousin said it was 1000 dollars, who would count money laying on your dead relative you just found...and as tight lipped as the police are being and possible suspicion of family, I doubt they told him the amount

    I think it is both because the DA was shorter than all the women when they were walking away.

    Not really important but has anyone seen Bobby Jo? On Friday when the story broke, I saw pictures of police escorting a woman from the scenes, she had blondish color long hair. Is that her?

    I had no problem with the press conference, either. Both the AG and the Sheriff have been very upfront that they are not going to release any information that would jeopardize this investigation. I did find it very interesting that the AG stated prosecutors have been brought in. I just posted my thoughts about this comment on the thread that closed. This statement tells me (at least today) that perhaps they have strong suspicions about who is responsible and they are bringing in prosecutors to make sure the evidence they have is strong enough first to issue an arrest warrant or warrant and secondly, to support a successful prosecution.

    Perhaps I'm just being hopeful. Time will tell.

    I'm not convinced the dogs are actually missing; we know that Kenneth's dog was there, and fierce, when LE got there.

    I still say these pressers are odd. We have seen pressers where they update some info and keep a lot to themselves.

    These pressers are not like that.

    Also almost everything they say, that we are supposed to take as verified info now, is contradicted later.
