Two years later, no arrests in Pike County family murders

PIKETON, Ohio (AP) -- A southern Ohio sheriff says he remains confident in the staff investigating the unsolved killings of eight family members nearly two years ago.

Sunday is the anniversary of the April 22, 2016 Rhoden family murders.

The case involves seven adults and a teenage boy who were found shot to death at four homes near Piketon.

Pike County Sheriff Charles Reader on Tuesday expressed confidence in the investigative staff while announcing he would not make comments ahead of the anniversary.

Reader says he's based his decision on respect for the victims and their family and friends.

He also says he doesn't want to compromise the investigation.

The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation has yet to announce suspects or arrests tied to the killings.
