Authorities investigating the massacre of a family in Pike County are asking for the public's help in tracking down video that could help them solve the case.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine and Pike County Sheriff Charles Reader said Tuesday they want any video from nearby residents or businesses in the Pike County and Adams County region that may lead to an arrest.

Specifically, DeWine said authorities want any video recorded on April 21 or April 22. Deputies found eight members of the Rhoden family shot to death "execution style" on April 22 at four different properties in Pike County, the attorney general said.

DeWine and Reader ask anyone with relevant video to call the state's tip line at 1-855-BCI-OHIO (224-6446) or the Pike County Sheriff's Office at 740-947-2111.

DeWine said space on two billboards has been donated to publicize these phone numbers. The billboards are both on U.S. Route 23 as you enter and exit Waverly, Ohio.

Investigators said they have received more than 500 tips so far, but they still urge anyone with information to contact them. Callers can remain anonymous.
