FIND YOURSELF GIVING UP WHEN IT GETS TOO HARD?
DO YOU PULL BACK OR FEEL VULNERABLE WHEN YOU PUT
YOURSELF OUT THERE?

That was ME. I stood on the sidelines and watched others succeed with consistent work and effort. I realized, like so many others, what I was lacking was the confidence and consistency to reach my OWN goals and dreams. As a result, my goals were not being f...

    The Piketon Massacre
    The Piketon Massacre
    On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
