    George Wagner is accused of killing a family of 8 living on a pot farm in Pike County OH. While first thought to be drug related the killings now could be the result of a custody battle. 3 other members of the Wagner family have been arrested as well. So many twists and turns and Websleuths members are on top of every single thing that happens in the shocking case.

    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.

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.

    ADMIN NOTE:

    The number of off topic posts in this thread is unacceptable.

    This thread is about the Rhoden family murders. Do not make the thread about yourself and do not discuss other members. If there is a concern about a post, use the Report feature to let WS staff know about it and do not discuss it on the board.

    Please do not bring social media hoopla and drama from other boards/sites into discussion at Websleuths. It can only serve to bring WS down to the same level ... which we are not.

    Do not respond to posts that are obviously off topic. It only makes the job of cleaning up the thread so much harder. We appreciate when you Report TOS violations quickly so we can catch things before they get out of hand.

    WS staff do not and cannot sit in each and every WS thread to read what is going on in real time. So, posts like "mods please delete if not allowed" are usually NOT seen by a Mod unless someone Reports them. If you think something might not be allowed, please ASK first so WS staff don't have to clean up all the mess that follows if it is not allowed.

    As always, your co-operation is appreciated.

    Please continue discussion here.

    Continued off topic posting will not be taken lightly and may result in a thread reply ban or other loss of posting privileges. Remember to stay on topic and do not discuss religion as it is also against The Rules Websleuths has in place.

    Thanks.

    Rita Newcombs bond was set at $50,000 with a 10 percent down so wouldn’t she have to pay the entire $50,000 or just $5,000?

    IMO, just the $5,000. However, if her bond is revoked Aug 28, she will go to jail and lose her $5,000. Hope she does. JMO

    Sorry for the delay in posting the Timeline and Case Summary above. It takes an hour or so to re-format these when I post them here. I'm busy this morning and may not be able to finish.

    Thank you, Betty - one thing, at the top it says, "Victims Murdered April 23, 2016" (post #9) wasn't the murder date April 21-22, 2016?

    Thanks again for all you do.

    Yes the murder date is April 21-22, 2016

    And Yes! I agree! Thanks for all you do Betty :D for helping the Rhoden threads stay focused and organized. No case is like this anywhere. It's almost crazy! I like it that this is a place where people feel like I do, and understand how important this case is for these precious 8 souls. And it means so much to me that the people on here want Justice for these families and for all the lives the Rhodens and Hannah Gilley touched. I get emotional.

    I think I speak for a lot of posters on here when I say I feel like "I know" the Rhodens and could go to UHR and say hi! But they are not there anymore. Sorry, I don't know how to explain it. Like I said, I just get emotional....:(:):(:)

    PS...A big thankx to y'all for keeping the Rhoden/Gilley threads going! Let's see it through to the end...through the last trial...:rolleyes:

    Yes, thanks. It's too late to fix it in this thread's Main Page, the time to edit has expired.

    I fixed that once before here on the site. This version of the timeline was uploaded from my original, so I had to re-format some stuff, etc.

    We need to find a different place to host this timeline so we can update it more easily and link where necessary. Ideally, I'd prefer a file in the cloud, etc where I can post it as a PDF
