This is completely devastating. 8 people were murdered in their homes in Piketon, Ohio homes on April 22. The 7 adults and 1 teenager were all related, and lived close to one another. They were murdered “execution style” during a disgusting killing spree. There is still no suspect in the case, and the killer is still out there. Here’s what we know.
This year has just been rife with tragedy. It struck again in the least expected of places on April 22, a small rural town called Piketon, Ohio. A killer sought out and murdered 8 members of the same family, the Rhodens, in four different homes, including 7 adults and a 16-year-old boy, reports CNN.
The murders are particularly horrifying for the manner of killing. Police report that they were all found shot in the head, with several of the asleep in bed when the killings happened. Officials describes the slayings as being “execution style.” So heartbreaking!
So far, no one has been arrested in connection to the crime, so the killer may still be at large. “I am still actively looking for a shooter,” Pike County Sheriff Charles Reader said. “I cannot confirm that there is no one on the loose who is not involved with this. If he is, he’s armed and dangerous.” Since the killer seems to be going after the Rhodens, said Attorney General Mike DeWine. “We’re advising family members to be very careful and take particular caution. This is a matter of public safety, especially for the Rhoden family.”
The killer did spare three young children, one of which is just 4 days old, and was found beside it’s slain mother in bed. A 6-month-old and a 3-month-old also died. This tragedy is simply horrific, and we hope that the killer is caught soon.
