    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

    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.

    [...]

    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.

    MOD NOTE: You may 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.

    Minors: You may discuss what is covered in the main stream media regarding the custody of minor children. If posting snips from articles regarding the children please redact their names. These babes are innocents. One day they will google their names or those of their parents. And plenty will come up. Let's be respectful of them and the catastrophic loss they have suffered at such tender ages. Thanks.

    DO NOT SLEUTH STILL LIVING FAMILY MEMBERS' FACEBOOK PAGES AND POST ABOUT IT HERE. Just don't mention it. Period.

    Leave the politics, both national and local, at the door. There is no room for them here.

    Try to keep your speculation broad as LE have given no statements indicating they have POIs or suspects in mind.

    Just wondering has anyone ever seen a news report stating that one of the crime properties did not belong to Chris R. Sr ? Have I missed that all this time ,dont think its real important , but dont remember seeing this before . I have the news link , but not sure if I'm allowed to post it .( includes names of potential owners )

    Supposedly the land that Frankie's house was on wasn't Chris's. But I never thought that was true. Doesn't make much sense that there would be a small parcel of land in the middle of Chris's land that belonged to somebody else. Because it wasn't Frankie's either! I always thought that was just a bunch of baloney, that somebody got confused.

    I'm making a summary of pertinent notes about the autopsy reports. I'll post it later. There's much to be learned from them, even though much is missing.

    Note the reports were "dumped" in the news media on a Friday, usually a tactic where LE doesn't want people to read the information. AKA Friday News Dump. Again, IMO, it points to LE wanting to keep information about this case out of the news media.

    Couple of things I noted right away:

    In all of the men, the description of their genitals is redacted. It's a very small amount of information. In most autopsies it would say "Penis is normal, circumcised" or something similar. Redacted in all the men, kind of unusual considering they died of gunshot wounds to the head.

    Another area where everyone's autopsy reports were somewhat normal and brief, but had words redacted was in the description of their vertebrae, pelvis, ribs and sternum.

    Some stomach contents were revealed, others redacted. Wonder if there was evidence of some ingestion of drugs (capsule residue, etc.) in those that were redacted.

    That's all I have for now. What do you think?
    All statements are my opinion only.

    I posted a question about who owned the land that FR's home was on months ago. According to the records, it is not owned by a Rhoden. I don't recall the name right now.

    Correct. That piece of property was not owned by the Rhodens.

    There is a blank under Genitalia for all the men, but there is another mention in Frankie's report that is redacted...

    That link is for the mobile home. Is the land owners the same people?

    Just throwing this out here: What if redacting the info about stomach contents indicates some were doing drugs like oxy, etc. Could indicate CR1 and others were involved in other areas of drug dealing.

    This doesn't say anything about the land. It is for the house only.
