    OH - Pike County: 8 people from one family dead as police hunt for killer(s) #16

    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.

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.

    Apparently somebody thought these people needed to die. For the life of me I cannot think of anyone who would risk their freedom to carry out murder like this. It seems it would have to be a hardened criminal.

    Is this on the "Remembering HHG" FB page? I don't see the post.

    Not that I am aware
    it kind of came to a halt with the reference to HHG's FB
    I'm also not sure regarding the discussion of the surviving children, think it is forbidden even though it was mentioned in MSM

    ha! I just came in and saw something so rude and I wanted to respond. I guess it's a good thing we got a new thread.

    If a thread is closed, you will know. All the options except 'thanks' disappear. I speak from lots of experience, lol.

    I can only imagine the things that would be assumed of my family if we were picked apart by the media and public. Yikes!

    My cousin was murdered by her husband as she held her infant and tried to run away from him. He then killed himself but the baby wasn't injured. When police came on scene, the baby was pretty quickly put into child protective service. Once that happened, there wasn't anything that could be done to get the baby placed into family custody while things were being sorted out. Relatives of both parents filed for custody - background checks had to be done, homes vetted, evaluations conducted by social workers, etc. Then everything was presented before a judge and a decision made. Throughout the process, supervised visitation was granted to all parties, but the baby remained in the states custody. This all took several months. We were told by a social worker that had there been a relative nearby that assumed care of the baby immediately, they would have most likely let that arrangement remain in place while custody was decided - but once the baby was placed in the states custody, they couldn't "undo" it. This may all vary by state, so jmo based on my experience in Louisiana.

    This was true in my case. My now adoptive parents had taken me out of a situation and filed for emergent custody before the state could step in and take me and they were able to keep me throughout the court proceedings. Had I ended up in the states hands first, it wouldn't have went that way. They just happened to get to me first. It wasn't a murder situation though, and it was almost 30 years ago. But it was a situation where I would have been placed in the care of the state. I DO remember people frequenting our house, checking it out, conducting interviews for the many years the custody battle went on with my biological mother and father. This was all in Illinois.

    I know right? I pray to God I just go peacefully and naturally! All the stuff we do and don't think anything of it! Thank God social media wasn't around when I was growing up! Lord only knows, we all have skeletons in our closets!
