    DeWine and Pike County Sheriff Charles Reader said no arrests have been made, they said. Authorities are trying to determine a motive, identify the deceased and determine if the killer or killers are among the deceased individuals or on the loose.

    None of those found shot appear to be suicides, indicating that it is likely that the assailant is at large, DeWine said.

    DeWine also told WLW radio that the assailant is "probably loose somewhere."

    “This is a horrible, horrible tragedy," DeWine said on WLW. "It looks like two teenagers dead and it looks like young young children who must have been there when it occurred.”

    The young children were not killed, DeWine added.

    DeWine said they do not know the motive at this time.

    I'm finding reports a bit confusing. they say it is not an active shooter, then say the shooter is still at large.

    According to a joint release from the two agencies, the initial seven confirmed dead were believed to be from the same family. Early indications were that the seven had been shot to death and that they were found dead Friday in three homes along Union Hill Road. Whether there was a family connection with the eighth body — found in a fourth home — has not been confirmed as yet.

    A Pike County victim's advocate said a five-day-old child and six-month-old child were found alive in one of the homes. Leonard Manley, who told the Cincinnati Enquirer he is the father and grandfather of some of the victims, said that two young children had been taken to Adams County Regional Medical Center, but the hospital would not confirm that.

    Pastor Phil Fulton, of nearby Union Hill Church, said he received the information on who the victims were earlier in the day from both family members and law enforcement officials. He also identified one of the victims as Dana Rhoden, and said the others were her adult children and grandchildren, as well as Rhoden's ex-husband.

    The pastor said the mother and children used to attend services at the church but hadn’t been there for some time.

    Manley said one of his daughters discovered the bodies when she went to Union Hill Road to feed dogs and chickens as part of her normal routine and that the daughter was speaking with police early Friday afternoon.

    Everything I've seen says the same thing.
    I think they're trying to determine if the shooter is one of the dead.

    A couple or three posts back it says none of the deceased appear to be a suicide. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    "Person of interest" in Pike Co. killings detained in Chillicothe, reports say

    PIKE COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

    A 'person of interest' in the Pike County family murders was detained in a traffic stop in Chillicothe, Ohio Friday just after 6:30 p.m., the Chillicothe Gazette is reporting.

    A vehicle was stopped at Main and Watt streets just after 6:30 p.m., reports state. The Gazette says the car was stopped as the result of a BOLO from the state Bureau of Criminal Investigation and that state agents.

    The "person of interest" has not been identified.

    Chillicothe is about 40 miles northeast from the shootings that killed eight family members in Piketon.

    I think it was someone who was close to the family and is inexperienced in killing (isn't a hitman or anything like that) b/c they did not have the brazen monstrous ability to kill the 3 children. MOO its probably a close friend or relation of the family.

    This is so so very sad, but I am glad the children are OK.
