Ohio will pay $7,500 for Dana Rhoden's funeral

The state of Ohio will pay $7,500 to cover the cost of Dana Rhoden’s funeral, according to the office of the attorney general.

The money comes from the Ohio Victims of Crime Compensation fund.

Rhoden, 37, died in the Pike County massacre of April 2016 alongside seven other members of her family, including her teenage children Hanna and Christopher Jr.

Although Pike County Sheriff Charles Reader said he believes the family's killers were locals, no suspects have been publicly identified in their deaths.

Rhoden’s mother, Judy Manley, filed the claim for funeral expenses.

WCPO has reached out to the Ohio Attorney General’s Office to learn whether or not it has received similar compensation requests for other Rhoden family members' funerals.
