Three pot growing operations were found on the rural Ohio farms where a family of eight was killed in what authorities said Sunday was a “pre-planned execution.”
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said the Friday murders of eight Rhoden family members was a “sophisticated operation” that will take a long time to investigate.
