Investigators are looking for information on four people as a part of the puzzling Pike County massacre investigation that left eight members of the Rhoden family dead a year ago.
Those who have any information are asked to call the BCI Tipline at 1-855-BCI-OHIO (224-6446) or the Pike County SHeriff’s Office at 740-947-2111. The four people were not named as suspects suspects in the murder investigation that have seemingly left authorities stumped for over a year. Jake Wagner once dated Hanna Rhoden, one of the eight victims.
Investigators have previously searched properties linked to the Wagners.
The individuals once lived about 15 miles (25 km) south of the four crimes scenes and are now believed to be living in Alaska, according to DeWine.
“What has happened to us in the last few weeks has been devastating and will follow us for the rest of our lives”, Angela Wagner wrote in an email to the Enquirer. “She was like a daughter to me then and now”.
The victims, all members of the Rhoden family ranging in age from 16 to 44, were executed at four separate homes in rural Ohio’s Appalachian foothills on April 22, 2016, in what investigators said was a planned, “sophisticated operation”. Now, investigators are asking for help solving the case of the execution-style killings.
This story has been corrected to show the father’s name is George “Billy” Wagner III, not George “Billy” Wagner IV.
