Woman recalls nightmare of finding family members dead

PIKETON, Ohio (AP) — The woman who is heard in a frantic 911 call says she is haunted by the memory of discovering some of the bodies in the slayings last month of eight people in southern Ohio.

Thirty-six-year-old Bobby Jo Manley tells The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/1X44hjP ) she took a 3-year-old and an infant out of a trailer where she found the boys’ parents — her nephew and his fiancée — dead in their blood-soaked bed on the morning of April 22.

Seven adults and a 16-year-old boy were found slain at four homes near Piketon. Attorney General Mike DeWine has called the Rhoden family killings a “pre-planned execution.”

Investigators found three marijuana grow sites and evidence of cockfighting at the crime scenes.
