    Pretty horrific that some monster can take the lives of not only adults but innocent children who couldn’t possibly be anything more than targets of a coward. I hope this is resolved quickly for everyone involved. Stop the killings in America. What is causing so much violence in recent years? I know these tragedies happen in communities that aren’t local to those reading these stories so it would seem that there is a increase in violence but no matter what no one should be using a gun or any weapon for that matter to handle their grudges or grips, stop the insanity!

    It is Piketon Ohio. And it is not a trailer park is a rural residence with more than one mobile home.

    There were seven adults and one teenager killed execution style. They have two suspects they are questioning right now. There was four day old, a six month old and a I believe nine year old that were spared. Just tragic. I’m in Ohio and it has been on the news all day.

    According to the latest press conference with Ohio AG Redwine it was a thoroughly planned and carried out execution, complete with evidence left to obscure who the real culprits are. They appear to think more than one killer was involved. Cruel, heinous.

    What a way to mess a story up. I live about 2 hours from the site and there was one child, age 16 that was gunned down. All others were adults.
