Eight members of the same family are dead in a series of execution-style shootings in four southern Ohio homes, according to CBSNews.com.
Authorities were first alerted to the shootings just before 8:00 a.m. yesterday morning when Pike County dispatchers received a call stating that two men were possibly dead at a home in Peebles. Responding officers were flagged down and alerted to two additional crime scenes on the same road. Another 911 call led authorities to an eighth victim later in the day at a home approximately ten miles away from the three other crime scenes.
The victims have been identified as members of the Rhoden family. Seven adults were slain in addition to a 16-year-old boy. Two babies and one three-year-old child were left unharmed.
Those responsible for the slayings are still at large. Bureau of Criminal Investigation agents were called yesterday to Pike County. The FBI in Cincinnati is also closely monitoring the situation.
