Authorities Provide Little Information In Pike County Shootings Update

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine is tight-lipped about the investigation into the murders of eight family members in Pike County last week. DeWine told reporters yesterday he wants to avoid informing the suspect or suspects about any details.

The bodies of seven adults and a 16-year-old boy were found last Friday at four locations in Piketon.  Pike County Sheriff Charles Reader described some of the crime scenes.


Reeder says investigators have interviewed more than 50 people, but no arrests have been made. DeWine and Reeder are warning of a scam in which someone is claiming to be from the sheriff's office and is asking for donations for the victims.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
