Family Systematically Executed in Ohio

Wow. Scary.

The victims, aged 16 to 44, were methodically shot in the head while sleeping at four residences, including a mother with a 4-day-old infant lying beside her, authorities said. The newborn, along with a 6-month-old and a 3-year-old, survived. The official said the killings happened before dawn.
“This was a preplanned execution of eight individuals,” DeWine said. “It was a sophisticated operation and those who carried it out were trying to do everything they could do to hinder the investigation and their prosecution.”
The killer or killers were specifically going after the Rhoden family, Pike County Sheriff Charles Reader emphasized, though he didn’t say why.
“I cautioned them they are a target and I cautioned them, ‘Be armed,’ ” he said.

    Drug wars.

    Drug wars – highly probable – I tripped across a news article that talked about 2 of 3 of the crime scenes being major marijuana growing operations. I had originally wondered about child sexual abuse – I recall a few years ago there was some kind of deal where a bunch of related families had been using each other’s kids for sex & then one of tne kids spoke to the wrong person about it.
