WTH. I sure hope they get whoever did this. The only survivors found was a 4 day old, a 6 month old, and a 3 yr old.

These murders were most likely from a family or a friend member, or a drug deal gone bad.

I wonder if they were involved in some kind of cult

Money. Maybe drugs. Doubt any cult but who knows?? Seriously, who here knows? You may have an enlightening post.

Yeah. This is a bad one.

I guess from what I read these murders where in two separate locations, but of the same general family.

The perp(s) apparently were not among the deceased.

Apparently there were 4 different locations. Police said they located a car about 6:30 PM from a BOLO report and were questioning the 2 people inside. Not sure if they had anything to do with the crime or not.

Just thinking, wouldn't a 3 yr recognize someone if this was done by other family members? Really worries me what that child might have seen. The other 2 were too young.

Just a small rural town :no:

Dang. 4 locations (as you corrected me), all involving the same family.

Jeeze...

4 different locations, had to be premeditated murder. Hope they catch the scumbags that did this soon.

Authorities urged residents to be cautious in this part of rural southern Ohio heading into the weekend as the search continued for whoever fatally shot eight members of a family at four different properties.

Investigators interviewed more than 30 people hoping to find leads in the deaths of the seven adults and 16-year-old boy whose bodies were found in homes southwest of Piketon on Friday.

All victims were shot in the head, authorities said, and it appeared some were killed as they slept, including a mother in bed with her 4-day-old baby nearby. The infant and two other small children were not hurt.

That's a little too specific. I don't think the general public is in further danger ATM. That sounds like a professional hit job.

That's such a poor, sparsely populated area of Ohio. I really did feel sorry for that poor Sheriff. I doubt whether he had many more people on duty when the crime scenes became known than necessary just to

cordon each of them off . Talk about overwhelming !

My wife was reading aloud from an article on this story a bit ago...

"other members of this family are urged to take extra precautions”

Gee ya think!? Thanks Einstein. I do hope this family is receiving some security detail at this time.

No one has been arrested at this time. Someone wanted this family dead for some reason.

FOX news is reporting one person of interest has been detained.

I hope everyone noticed and was duly impressed that our long absent Governor Kasich has tweeted that he is following this on an internet program and sends his condolences, even signed it "John."

How homey of him !

There's so many possible motives for something like this. Retribution.. I think at this point, the extended family is encountering a battery of questions. Could it have been another family member, family friend, etc.? Could be a paid job, def. and if so, over what? Hope it unravels quick and those responsible are curb stomped.

It would be interesting to know if any of the deceased served in the military. Although (very) unlikely, weren't there threats made against soldiers and military families a few years back? Again, I doubt this scenario in the extreme but may be worth mentioning.

Police have released the names and the 911 calls from the killings. There is a disclaimer that some of the content may be disturbing to some people. I can't get the links to work.
