Pike County homes relocated to preserve crime scenes

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine and Pike County
Sheriff Charles Reader announced today that the homes where eight
members of the Rhoden family were murdered last month are being
relocated to preserve the crime scenes.

The work to move the four mobile homes, which has been authorized by the
court, began this afternoon, and the entire process to relocate all four
scenes is expected to take several days.

The homes will be transported to a secure location at the investigation
command center in Waverly.

The decision to move the homes was made in order to preserve the crime
scenes in the conditions in which they were found in an effort to assist
with the ongoing investigation and anticipated prosecution of the
person(s) responsible for the mass murders.

Anyone with information and/or video that could assist with the ongoing
investigation is asked to contact investigators at 855-BCI-OHIO
(224-6446) or 740-947-2111.
