Updates: Thunderbird F-16 jet flips, crashes at Dayton airport

DeWine: Pike County murders ‘very hot’ case


Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said the Pike County murders are a “very hot” case, though it remains unclear how close investigators are to making an arrest.

DeWine said he believes “some decent progress” has been made in the year since the murders in Pike County. His comments were made during a radio interview with WHIO’s Larry Hansgen on Miami Valley’s Morning News.

“We know a lot more today than when the murders took place, I can tell you that,” said DeWine, without specifics due, he maintains, to protecting the integrity of the case.

DeWine acknowledged, though, there are likely persons with information who aren’t being honest with investigators.

“I don’t think there’s any doubt … there are people who know things they are simply not telling us,” DeWine said. “Anyone who has information and is afraid to give it to us because it might implicate them in some growing of marijuana or some sort of involvement in drugs, we want to assure them our focus is not on that.”

DeWine’s comments came before his office released a video of Rhoden family members seeking information in the case. He said the video is “gut wrenching.”

Where are panhandlers the biggest problem in Dayton? We have a map

People have called police more than 200 times to complain about nuisance panhandlers at two Dayton intersections. These calls resulted in only 10 arrests, citations or any report being filed.
