    This is quite interesting indeed. I hope the Wagners moving from the property turns up something the detectives can latch on to so this horrible crime can be solved!

    Brother of victim in unsolved Rhoden family murders appears in court

    WAVERLY, Ohio — The brother of one of eight victims of an unsolved southern Ohio massacre has appeared in court for a hearing on evidence-tampering and vandalism charges over allegations he destroyed a GPS tracking device.

    Forty-year-old James Manley, of Peebles, appeared in Pike County Court on the felony charges Wednesday. A judge set an $80,000 bond. Court records don't indicate if Manley has an attorney.

    I wonder what the significance of the tracking device is about? I mean, would it cover up his tracks to the Rhodens' place?

    The GPS was only placed on the truck last month. After James Manley supposedly failed a polygraph. James also supposedly texted Jake Wagner on the morning of the killings.

    What’s next in the Pike County murders investigation?

    Many of the next steps in the Pike County murders investigation remain known only to authorities, but a recent arrest of victim family member James Manley means the 13-month-old case will remain in the news.

    Manley, 40, was released Wednesday from Ross County Jail after his wife posted 10 percent of his $80,000 bond. He will be subject to random drug tests as part of his release. He faces charges of tampering with evidence, a third-degree felony, and vandalism, a fifth-degree felony, for allegedly destroying a state GPS tracker on his truck.

    Manley is not charged in the murders, nor is anyone else. The Ohio Attorney General’s office would not say if Manley, or any other person, is a suspect in the murder case

    Here’s a look at the next steps in Manley’s case:

    AG wants information on Peebles family related to Rhoden investigation
    exclusive interview with the Enquirerearlier this month.

    Her comments then and those of her son, Jake Wagner, came in several Facebook and email exchanges with The Enquirer last month.

    "Please let's concentrate on finding the real monsters who did this," Jake Wagner, 24, said in a combined email sent to The Enquirer last month.

    Angela Wagner's comments came just weeks after authorities conducted three searches of the Wagner's properties in Pike and Adams counties. Authorities have repeatedly declined to discuss the searches or indicated what they may have seized. The Wagner denied knowing why the properties were searched.

    Mon., May 15, 2017: The property in the 200 block of Peterson Road in Adams County Monday, which ...more

    Rumors and speculation about the family have swirled since the day of the massacre but intensified in recent weeks after the family sold their farm, moved all their belongings to another farm and took a trip to Alaska. Angela Wagner called that trip a family vacation. They returned to Ohio late last month but said she and her family were too busy to meet in person with Tthe Enquirer.

    Authorities said Monday they believe the family has now relocated to Alaska.

    The Wagner family was the subject of three searches on farms in Pike and Adams counties in May 2017 ...more
    Dan Tierney, a spokesman for the Ohio Attorney General's Office, said he could not comment on whether Ohio authorities have reached out to Alaska authorities in the case. He said the Wagners have not been charged with any crimes related to the Rhoden killings.

    Investigators are "certainly interested in any information around the day of the murders to present ... but we are hesitant to limit that time frame,'' Tierney said. "If anyone has any information or any tips, they should either call the BCI or the Sheriff's office."

    DeWine, who has been tight-lipped about the case, has said that authorities believe the killers knew the family and were familiar with the rural area on Union Hill Road and East Fork Road, where they lived and where they were found shot to death.

    He called the killings execution-style, indicated the crime scenes were cleaned of some potential evidence and said police found evidence of three commercial-grade marijuana grow sites at two locations. Family members have said those sites were at the homes of Christopher Rhoden, Sr., and Kenneth Rhoden.

    However, they have never linked the grow sites to a motive in the case, which remains without an arrest.

    Family and neighbors have claimed Hanna Rhoden and Jake Wagner were involved in a nasty custody dispute over their daughter, Sophia.

    Both Wagners have denied that. They have said they have been interviewed and cooperated in the investigation.

    Rather, Angela Wagner said the couple wanted to legally formalize their agreed-upon shared custody arrangement. After they split up, each parent had custody of Sophia for one week, usually alternating each Saturday.

    "What has happened to us in the last few weeks has been devastating and will follow us for the rest of our lives,'' Angela Wagner wrote in an email. "Hanna was loved by all of us. She was like a daughter to me then and now. Her loss still hurts to this day especially when we see her every day in Sophia."

    Those who have information about the Wagner family are asked to call the BCI tip line at 1-855-BCI-OHIO (224-6446) or the Pike County Sheriff's Office at 740-947-2111.

    Any information provided will remain confidential, and a $10,000 reward is still in effect.
