Seven members of the same family have been killed at an Ohio home, according to the state's Bureau of Criminal Investigation. There is still an active shooter at the scene, local ABC affiliate WCPO reported.

The attorney general's office confirmed "multiple homicides" but refused to release additional information, WBNS reported.

The Pike County Sheriff's Office has reportedly called for investigators from the Bureau of Criminal Investigation.

very sad indeed, I hope this info will make it to those naysayers who believe that violent crime is a strictly South African thing

911 call in Ohio: 'There's blood all over the house'

PEEBLES, Ohio — The voice of the young woman who found the first of eight victims of execution-style killings in rural Ohio was breathless and distraught as she told the 911 dispatcher of her grim discovery: There was "blood all over the house" and the bodies of her brother-in-law and a cousin looked as if someone "beat the hell out of them."

The dramatic 911 calls that came in to the Pike County Sheriff's Office on Friday offered a chilling backdrop to the shooting deaths of members of one family — the Rhodens — that have left this small community 70 miles east of Cincinnati reeling.

The initial frantic call, from a woman who identified herself as Bobby, came in at 7:49 a.m. Friday and the second came in at 1:26 p.m., with the discovery several miles away of the last of the eight bodies.

DeWine: We've interviewed 128 people in Pike County massacre case

There have been more than 450 tips, 100 items sent to state laboratories and exactly 128 witness interviews since the massacre of eight family members in Pike County last month, authorities said Monday.

Investigators found bodies in four homes near Peebles, Ohio on April 22. Seven of the victims — six adults and a 16-year-old boy — were fatally shot execution-style in three adjacent homes, while the eighth victim — also an adult — was shot to death in a fourth house in nearby Piketon, deputies said. All of the victims were members of the Rhoden family.

I'm sure he (or she) will be caught soon. This isn't SA where killers are never traced.

Has any light been shed on what someone in the family did to p1ss off someone so badly that they'd murder the extended family incl kids?

Its a heinous retribution but I'm pretty sure something sketchy started this off, granted if its rednecks we talking about it may be something as simple as the family letting their sheep wander onto the neighbours property year in year out that could have sparked this...
