FOX19/AP - A prosecutor says the investigation of the unsolved killings of eight Ohio family members nearly two years ago remains focused on a family of four that left the state for Alaska.
Pike County Prosecutor Rob Junk told the Cincinnati Enquirer that two agents from the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation and a member of the Pike County Sheriff's Office work full-time on the case.
Last year, authorities asked the public for information on the Wagner family, four Peebles residents who relocated to Alaska.
They were long-time friends with the Rhodens. The Wagners have never been named as suspects and their attorney says they weren't involved.
It remains unclear what prompted law enforcement to seek them out.
The slayings happened two years ago Sunday. The case involves seven adults and a teenage boy from the Rhoden family found shot to death at four homes near Piketon, in southern Ohio.
