Fourth mobile home secured as investigation into Pike Co. killings continues

Authorities said it's to preserve crime scenes

WAVERLY, Ohio -- The final of four mobile homes where eight members of the Rhoden family were found shot dead execution-style last month was relocated at investigators' command center late Friday afternoon.


DeWine announced Thursday the relocations are part of investigators’ efforts to preserve the crime scenes, as they continue to piece together the events that led up to the April killings.

DeWine said investigators have collected hundreds of pieces of evidence and interviewed hundreds of people as part of their search for the killer or killers.


The eight family members were found the morning of April 22 shot in what Pike County Sheriff Charles Reader described as a “targeted” series of killings.

Authorities still had not released a motive in the killings or identified any possible suspects.
