The family of the eight people found dead on April 22, 2016 plea for more information on the murders.

The Ohio Attorney General's Office released a video message from Geneva Rhoden and Teresa Grebing, asking for information that could help the investigation.

Geneva Rhoden lost two sons, and three grandchildren. She is the mother to victims Christopher Rhoden, Sr. and Kenneth Rhoden, the grandmother to Clarence "Frankie" Rhoden, Hanna Rhoden, Christopher Rhoden Jr., aunt to Gary Rhoden and the ex-mother-in-law to Dana Rhoden.

Grebing lost two brothers, two nephews, and a niece. She is the sister of Christopher Rhoden, Sr. and Kenneth Rhoden, aunt to Clarence "Frankie" Rhoden, Hanna Rhoden, Christopher Rhoden Jr., cousin of Gary Rhoden and ex-sister-in-law to Dana Manley Rhoden.

"My heart's been broken," said Rhoden.

"They stole so much from much from us," said Grebing. "The killers stole so much."

Both Geneva and Teresa say they loved Clarence "Frankie" Rhoden's fiancé, Hannah Gilley, and welcomed her to the Rhoden family.

"You always think about the last time you saw each of them," said Grebing.

"You think about reunions, but they won't be there," said Rhoden.

"And you know the killers haven't been caught, and everywhere you go, you're always looking over your shoulder," said Grebing. "You live in fear."

Their killer, or killers, are still on the loose. Who did it, and why, remain a mystery.

For the people they loved and lost, for any hope of healing, they need someone to do the right thing.

"I hope and pray that somebody out there comes forward," sobbed Grebing. "Please, please, please come forward. Please end this nightmare that we are living."

There is a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the Rhoden killings.

Anyone with information on the Rhoden/Gilley/Manley murders is asked to call BCI at 1-855-BCI-OHIO (224-6446) or the Pike County Sheriff's Office at 740-947-2111.
