(NBC News) More than 100 members of law enforcement are now involved in what’s being called “a large scale investigation” as authorities search for whoever is responsible for the massacre of eight members of one Ohio family.
Authorities confirmed that marijuana growing operations were discovered at three of the four crime scenes, but won’t comment on a possible motive.
Ohio’s attorney general calls the killings cold blooded and calculated.
“Imagine four houses within a relatively short period of time were hit, and eight people were executed in those houses. That is not something that happens spontaneously,” said Attorney General Mike DeWine.
The victims have been identified as members of the Rhoden family, and police warn that other members of the family could be at risk.
