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. On April 22, 2021 Edward Jake Wagner pleads guilty and agrees to testify against family members.

PRESSER: APRIL 27, 2016

Video Interview with Attorney General DeWine Published 8-13-16


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.

I'm looking to see if WCPO is going to have live coverage again today. Anyone else?

I watched a little Law & Crime yesterday, but they always interrupted when Judge Deering was speaking.

Looks like Fox 19 Cinci will be covering it live today. These are usually w/o ads


If WCPO covering it live today, it should be here or in this area of their web site

From BeckyF previous thread
Jake Wagner admitted to killing 5 of the victims. Has he said who killed the other 3? Sorry if I missed this.

Billy Wagner did.
Does this sound right based on information in opening yesterday? Jake admits to shooting Frankie, Hannah Hazel, Dana, Hannah May, Chris Jr. He said Billy shot Kenneth, Chris Sr, and Gary?
