    PIKE COUNTY, Ohio —

    A town woke up one morning to the horror that eight people were brutally killed. The Rhoden family suffered an unthinkable loss eight times over on one late April night in 2016. And years would go by before an arrest was made, and the massacre of an entire family still haunts Pike County, Ohio to this day. The murders of the Rhoden family still haunt small Ohio community

Let's be respectful of them and the catastrophic loss they have suffered at such tender ages. Thanks.

    Copy and paste into browser and search. It's a photo of a document from Twitter and its from MSM. Document relating to custody and a copy of document signed by Bruce Dailey with custody details.
    Sorry but I don't know how else to link it.

    Thank you. I believe this is the first documentation of the “hammer toe” trait that had been rumored.
    Also interesting, the document is dated April 28, 2016

    If you enlarge the document in the photocopy of the affidavit you can see a second document behind it. It shows a paper naming Jake as Plaintiff and Hanna as defendant.

    There is a third document behind it from Juvenile division that appears to have "Hanna May WAGNER" on it.

    Looks like Jake had something drawn. I wonder where MSM got the document.

    That 2nd doc in the pile looks to be dated in 2013 possibly.

    When was SW born? It also might prove there had been custody “issues” since as far back as 2013.
