The Piketon Massacre

Sep 30 2020 33 mins 2.7k

On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?

So incredibly repetitive. I could sum up what I've learned in four episodes in about 5 minutes. So disappointed.

The Piketon Massacre. Great podcast, but the volume! The narrator speaks very softly, and the story itself is louder but still muted well below other typical podcasts. When a commercial comes on, it's full volume! Very annoying to have to keep adjusting the volume.
