1 month after Ohio slaying of 8, still no suspects or motive

PIKETON, Ohio (AP) — Authorities investigating the killings of eight relatives in rural southern Ohio say they’ve received over 550 tips over the last month.

Investigators say they’ve also reviewed evidence and relocated entire crime scenes but they’ve yet to share any conclusions about who targeted the family or why.

Sunday marks one month since seven adults and a 16-year-old boy from the Rhoden family were found dead at four properties near Piketon. A coroner determined all but one had been shot repeatedly, and some also had bruising.

Authorities have moved the four mobile homes to an investigation command center in Waverly, saying they hope to preserve the gruesome crime scenes to help with the investigation.

Vehicles from the properties also have been removed from the properties.
