I'm guessing someone very close to the elder Christopher Sr.

They took out everyone near and dear to him. Ex-wife, brother, both sons, a daughter and the baby mamma of his oldest son, and threw in a cousin to boot. It's possible the cousin and baby mama were killed not to leave any witnesses behind. It looks like somebody made good on 'I'll kill your whole family' threat.

The only way this is cartel work is if Christopher Sr. sister is completely estranged from the family. Which she isn't because she made the 1st 911 call. So why wasn't she offed with the rest of the Rhoden clan? Could she be the mother of Josh Rhoden?

Good points Cate. I have read as much as I can regarding the family. Two of the residents were within walking distance. A third is one mine away, and the fourth is eight miles away. A big marijuana bust happened in that town a few years ago that had suspected ties to a Mexican drug cartel.

There's definitely a drug cartel connection. How far it goes into the local law enforcement community and beyond is the question.

The marijuana bust a couple of years ago netted 22,000 plants, yet nobody has been arrested??!!? It would be virtually impossible for local law enforcement not to know about an operation of this size.

The Rhoden's operation was indoors. That means extremely high electricity bills for the Rhoden grow house property. Wouldn't that be something the DEA would concern themselves, after a recent bust that netted 22,000 plants? Given the small size of the county, there's no way local law enforcement was blind to the Rhoden operation.

The fact that no arrest have been made on the big bust, tells me this goes beyond just local law enforcement involvement. So far the community talking to the press are praising this family as if they were some of their most upstanding, law abiding citizens in the community.

Something very secretive and dark about this massacre. The truth may take decades to emerge. Meanwhile we may see a showtime or HBO mini series cover it.

Ive been on multiple sites and web forums and many claim that the Sheriff's office is crooked. It seems that the family were good old white trash like some of us. They fought chickens and grew marijuana. One law enforcement officer said that roughly 200 plants were found in one of the grow sites. We can only assume that the sites were similar in size and one plant produces


Let me try to explain this correctly. I have a family member who was in the indoor grow business for a while. Using a 400 watt light set up you can expect around 400 grams or 14 ounces of salable marijuana. With a 1200 watt light set up you can produce 1.2 kilograms or 42 ounces of salable marijuana. In KY and Indiana it sells for around $300/350 a ounce based on the quality. I'm going with the low price. So that's roughly $4,200 a plant times 200 for a grand total of $840,000. Were talking about a huge operation.

A new wrinkle in the case. The father of one of the victims came forward questioning how did the killers get past the dogs which included two trailer park unicorns. He said that "someone had to know them dogs."

Also each victim was shot at least twice with one victim being shot 9 times. Some of the victims were bruised from being beat.

As you know Ohio's ballot initiative to legalize marijuana failed last year.

A PAC called Responsible Ohio initiated by 10 investors of a Marijuana Growth, Cultivation and Extraction cartel, tried to get their business model written into Ohio's Constitution lost millions. More than $36 million was spent trying to create that monopoly. Thankfully, it was defeated.

Had the ballot initiative passed, the 10 investors of individual grow sites stood to make billions. Those investors had several celebrities pushing for their initiative. Had it passed, Ohio's Constitution would have given complete authority to these 10 grow site investors, essentially establishing a legal Cartel that locked out all competition.

The initiative not only restricted grow sites to these 10 investors, it set the amount of tax they would pay on their marijuana production and exactly how much of the taxes collected would be distributed among local a d state governments, including how much would be distributed to a state Commission, that they would oversee.

Now if I'm a significant illegal grower of illegal marijuana, I'm opposed to an initiative that would close my operation. While I could support legalizing the use of marijuana, I would definitely only support it if such an initiative allowed me to fairly compete with other growers in my State.

If you look at the names of the ten investors behind the initiative to write a monopoly business plan into Ohio's constitution, you won't see any hispanic surnames. I think these folks and their backers that invested millions to legalize a marijuana cartel, might be of interest. At least I would want to know if any of them or their backers, had any direct contact with any Rhoden family members within the last 18 months.

The FBI has offered their assistance with investigation of this famlly annihilation. So far, it's been refused.

This is very significant. With the reach of the FBI you would think that a local police department would be begging for help.

Their is a Kentucky connection with the family. Gary Rhoden was from Greenup County Ky. Must be where they weed growing knowledge came from.

I think Gary must be the 'little brother' that Kenny Rhoden refers to in the article below. Kenny made a 911 call the day after the bodies of his family members were found. Apparently he was traveling towrd Greenup, Ky when he made the call. Listen to his 911 call. Kenny has since attributed the incident to some 'boys drunk and partying'. I don't think so.
