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.

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.

Did anyone ever determine what this actually means?

“The enterprise, through a pattern of corrupt activity or the collection of an unlawful debt, to wit.........”

It’s in the indictments.

Any idea how long it takes an attorney to be verified? I’m thinking of asking a friend to get here stat to answer questions.


I don't know how long it takes Trudie, ask Tricia if she is still on here. We have had several attorneys on different threads that had threads specifically started to ask questions. Gitana1 is one, and for the life of me I can't recall who helped us so much during the Jodi Arias trial... she was heaven sent IMO.

Drats, now I need to go look for her. :D:D


ETA:
Well now I am red faced, it was AZlawyer, :rolleyes: there was also Minor4th and Mormon Attorney.

Lawriter - ORC - 2923.31 Corrupt activity definitions.

Enterprise" includes any individual, sole proprietorship, partnership, limited partnership, corporation, trust, union, government agency, or other legal entity, or any organization, association, or group of persons associated in fact although not a legal entity. "Enterprise" includes illicit as well as licit enterprises.

**************

After reading this multiple times, I think I can see (maybe) what part 2 of the motive is & perhaps the “bizarreness”. How about you guys?

No, Im trying to catch up. Like 12 pages behind. I'll let u know once I check it out.

Well, sadly, the above links are tedious reading. Lol
I called an atty friend, but he’s preparing for a.m. court.

For now, I’m going to refrain from posting where I think this is going. Once you or anyone read the links, I do believe things will be more clear. I must study this more, tho. Unfortunately, I gotta read one indictment again. Boring.

Pondering on this a bit more before take the plunge. Here's a definition that states that the item can be a "thing" too;

Under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, an unlawful debt is defined as “a debt that is (A) unenforceable under state or federal law in whole or in part as to the principal or interest because of the laws relating to usury, and (B) which was incurred in connection with the business of lending money or a thing of value at a rate usurious under state or federal law, where the usurious rate is at least twice the enforceable rate.” Proctor v. Metro. Money Store Corp, 645 F. Supp. 2d 464 (D. Md. 2009)

“pattern of corrupt activity”. Pattern would be more than once & perhaps quite frequent, right?

Lol, I’m thinking out loud.

I kind of read this as allowing gangs to be defined as an enterprise. Though gangs are not legally organized as a LLC, they are nonetheless "an associated group of people". I am just thinking out loud and throwing it out there!
Are there any biker groups in that area?
