Mourners arrive to attend a funeral for six members of the Rhoden family in rural OhioMore than a week after eight family members were found shot to death at four separate homes in rural Ohio's Appalachian foothills, funerals for six of the victims were held on Tuesday as investigators continue to comb through evidence. The victims, all members of the Rhoden family ranging in age from 16 to 44, were executed on April 22 in a planned, "sophisticated operation," officials said. David Dickerson from the Pike County prosecutor's office told reporters after the church service on Tuesday that it was standing-room only in the church for the nearly 40-minute service for the six victims.
