In the early morning hours of April 22, 2016, eight members of the Rhoden family, across four different homes, were murdered in Pike County, Ohio. The inquiry into these brutal slayings – the largest homicide investigation in Ohio history – uncovered a series of shocking familial ties, resentments, feuds, and illegal activity. In November of 2018, four individuals, all members of another local family, were arrested and charged with the murders.
The Oxygen Network is taking an in-depth look at these shocking crimes with their new show ‘The Piketon Family Murders,’ premiering March 31 at 7 PM. Our managing partner, Jacqueline Newman, was interviewed for the series and provided her own expertise on familial strife and domestic violence, and how matters of the heart can, in the most extreme circumstances, lead to homicide.
