Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said Monday that investigators are putting together leads “once piece at a time,” but declined to discuss a possible motive for a “pre-planned execution” of eight members of a Piketon family.
The suspect or suspects remain at large.
DeWine told The Cincinnati Enquirer Monday in an interview that investigators are not approaching the case “with a grand theory” about what might have happened. Instead, he said, “we are looking at each piece of information and see where it takes us, without any preconceived notions.”
“That’s the way you end up solving these crimes,” he said.
It’s still not clear, DeWine said, whether three marijuana growing operations found at the crime scenes are connected to the killings.
