Thursday Crime Stories: Family of 8 massacred off rural road

The investigation into the killings of eight members of an Ohio family in 2016 appears to have turned cold, which prompted a judge to order the coroner to release summaries of the victim autopsies.

Nancy Grace re-examines the Rhoden family massacre in light of the new revelations with a panel of experts including death scene investigator Joseph Scott Morgan, South Carolina medical examiner Dr. Michelle Dupre, New York psychologist Caryn Stark, Atlanta juvenile judge & lawyer Ashley Willcott, and Crime Stories reporter Nicole Partin.

The eight victims—including a teen boy and girl—were found dead at four homes located on the Piketon property. The victims include the following: parents Christopher Rhoden Sr., 40, and Dana Rhoden, 37; their three children, Hannah Rhoden, 19, Christopher Rhoden Jr., 16, and Frankie Rhoden, 20; Frankie’s fiancee, Hanna Gilley, 20; the three children’s uncle, Kenneth Rhoden, 44; and the children’s cousin, Gary Rhoden, 38.
