    They're saying it took a lot of hard detective work. The killings had been planned for months in advance!

    What kind of family is this where so many condone the merciless mass killing of a whole family? SICK!

    A family that now faces the Death penalty 8 times each.

    They just said the prosecution end of this case could take many years. It's a very complicated case.

    "There's an undercurrent of drugs", said at the presser. They weren't able to say much, but it sounded like to me that they don't believe drugs was the motive.

    The pieces of evidence that led authorities to the Wagner family included pieces of a silencer, forged custody documents and evidence of tampering in the Rhoden family's security cameras and phones, Sheriff Reader says. "And the lies. So many lies."

    "We have absolutely no evidence that anyone else was involved".

    I think this was said because the locals have been really scared in the aftermath. :(

    They were careful. It was planned and the plans were executed carefully. <----- paraphrased from the prosecutor.

    Yeah, the plans weren't all that was "executed". :vigil:

    DeWine suggested earlier that the Custody of Sophia was the main reason.

    These psycho's killed EIGHT people over the custody of a child? FFS.

    I wonder how long they've been on to them? Probably a while.
    See, I get so down. Thinking that because it's been so long, they must not have anything. Been saying that in several cases lately. I know "justice is slow" and all that. It's frustrating. Sometimes it's worth the wait.

    The Wagners had left over a year ago to move to Alaska. I wonder what brought them back and if it was temporary.

    Child at Center of Ohio Mass Killing Is Safe, Family Says
    Nov. 14, 2018, at 5:04 p.m.

    A child at the center of a custody dispute that may have set off a gruesome Ohio massacre is safe in state custody, her great-grandfather said Wednesday, before one of the four suspects in the killings appeared in court.

    Leonard Manley, whose daughter and grandchildren were among the eight people killed in 2016, told The Cincinnati Enquirer the 4-year-old girl is in state custody.

    [...]

    DeWine gave scant detail about why the victims were killed, other than saying the custody of a young child played a role.
