Saturday eight members of a family were slaughtered in Piketon, a small town of Ohio east of Cincinnati. According to The New York Times, three marijuana grow operations were discovered during the investigation of these murders. 

Kenneth Rhoden, 44; Christopher Rhoden Sr., 40; Christopher Rhoden Jr., 16; Hannah Gilley, 20; Clarence Rhoden, 20; Hanna Rhoden, 19; Dana Rhoden, 37; and Gary Rhoden, 38 were deceased at four different crime scenes. Three of the murder sites are located on the same street, whereas the fourth scene is 15 to 20 minutes away.

Officials believe that the killings were thoroughly organized before a plan was executed. Attorney General Mike DeWine told reporters the case is undergoing a lengthy investigation in attempt to link suspects to the murders.

It is unknown whether or not the three marijuana grows were discovered at one murder scene in separate areas or at two or three different crime scenes. To learn more about this case, read the full article
