    OH - Pike County: 8 people from one family dead as police hunt for killer(s) #12

    Ohio Shooting: Latest on Pike County murders
    Wednesday, May 4, 2016

    PIKE COUNTY, Ohio — No arrests have been made in the shooting investigation of eight execution-style killings of members of the Rhoden family last month in Pike County, Ohio.

    [...]

    The latest in the investigation in Pike County was that vehicles were towed on Tuesday from the various crime scenes as evidence, confirmed Jill Del Greco, a spokeswoman for the Attorney General.
    There’s been no word on how many vehicles were being towed away or where they were taken

    Ohio family massacre highlights rural region’s ties to illegal drugs
    POSTED 6:00 PM, MAY 1, 2016, BY CNNWIRE

    The gruesome slayings have rattled this southeast corner of Appalachian Ohio, a region that culturally identifies more closely with neighboring Kentucky and West Virginia than the state’s northern cities. As U.S. 23 leads away from Columbus, business parks and strip malls give way to lush stretches of farmland dotted with old farmhouses and rusted silos. Farther south into the Appalachian foothills, churches, pickup trucks and Confederate flags become more common.

    [...]

    Adding to the shock was the discovery of hundreds of illegal marijuana plants on Rhoden’s property, highlighting the region’s dependency on the illegal drug trade as jobs in agriculture and timber have dried up.

    Family: Rhoden property had video cameras

    Leonard Manley, the father of Dana Rhoden, said his former son-in-law Christopher Rhoden Sr. had at least two video cameras mounted to a building near the entrance of his trailer on Union Road. When motorists arrived at this driveway, a sensor would turn lights on, he said.

    “You could clearly see the cars and even the people inside," said Manley, sitting outside his home on Union Hill Road Tuesday.

    He said he believed Christopher Rhoden Sr. kept the cameras on at all time, but did not know if authorities had video from those cameras. DeWine and investigators have chosen not to release details of their investigation, now nearly three weeks old.

    I think it would depend on whether the cameras provided live feed only or also video that could be played back. We had such a camera mounted on our front porch at one time. It was live feed so we could see who was knocking on our door and even pulling up in the drive. but it didn't record video. We led people to believe it did - but in actuality it did not. We felt it deterred theft and trespassers.

    Question on the search warrants. If that barn isn't on ChrisSR land, would they have needed a search warrant for it? Is that an extension of the property a relative of DR lives on? I soooo need to make myself a map.

    I wonder if the land that FR and KR lived already had well and septic when trailers were put on between 2010 and 2014. If not another expense, not cheap. Who would pay for it? Seems to me landowner would pay if FR and KR didn't own it.

    Small point but just another question of where money comes from.

    OH - Pike County: 8 people from one family dead as police hunt for killer(s) #12

    I wonder how long Union Hill is from east to west, how many people lived on it, were the residence all Rhodens and Manleys?

    I'm down in this rabbit hole just waiting for someone to help me out or pour dirt on me. Doing a lot of wondering.

    In the rabbit hole with you. I need to get out of it and do something besides reading this case every 5 minutes. It might actually clear my head!

    I apologize if this article link was already posted - or is posted twice by me as I am having technical difficulties.

    "The coroner’s report has yet to surface, but she said only one victim was shot once.
    This was revealed by Daily Mail Online to be Kenneth Rhoden whose body was left with dollar bills strewn over his legs and the blanket drawn over his body, which was discovered by his cousin Donald.
    Other victims suffered multiple gunshot wounds, including two victims shot five times and one victim shot nine times."

    I don't think the subject had been spoken about all by DeWine or Sheriff Reader until yesterday.

    DS told the Daily Mail that camera security at KR's had been dismantled and removed.

    Me too. This is a tough one. I don't have anything to offer. So many avenues that one can take it boggles the mind.

    Another Motive

    The Auditor's Office says the maps are not to scale. But what if they are close and the mobile home and new building are not on property owned by Chris Sr.? What if he thought that property
    went back from the road as far as the ones adjacent? It looks like he was using that property as his as far back as the adjacent properties. There definitely could be a confrontation over that.
    It may be far fetched but I know people who have had disputes over property lines including myself.
