The Piketon Massacre

The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes.

As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
