The coroner released autopsy results for the eight Rhoden family members Tuesday as investigators continue to comb through hundreds of tips in connection with the execution-style killings.

Most of the victims sustained multiple gunshot wounds, according to the preliminary autopsy performed by the Hamilton County Coroner’s Office. One victim was shot a total of nine times.

The family members were shot in the head, torso and extremities, the autopsy found.

  • One victim sustained two gunshot wounds
  • Two victims each sustained three gunshot wounds
  • One victim sustained four gunshot wounds
  • Two victims each sustained five gunshot wounds
  • One victim was shot nine times. 

Bodies of the seven adults and 16-year-old boy were found Friday at four properties near Piketon, Ohio – about 75 miles east of Cincinnati.

More than 300 tips have been received through the Bureau of Criminal Investigation and Pike County Sheriff’s Office, all of which are under investigation, according to an updated statement from Attorney General Mike DeWine.

The victims are Hannah Gilley, 20, Christopher Rhoden, Sr., 40, Christopher Rhoden, Jr., 16, Clarence “Frankie” Rhoden, 20, Dana Rhoden, 37, Gary Rhoden, 38, Hanna Rhoden, 19 and Kenneth Rhoden, 44.
