COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio attorney general’s office has released redacted copies of the final autopsy reports in the unsolved slayings of eight family members.
The reports released Friday confirm earlier accounts that all but one victim was shot multiple times in the head.
Attorney General Mike DeWine released the documents at the request of several media organizations, including The Associated Press.
The release came shortly after the Ohio Supreme Court ended settlement talks Friday between DeWine’s office and the Columbus Dispatch, which sued for the complete reports.
Seven adults and a teenage boy from the Rhoden family were found shot to death at four homes near Piketon on April 22.
DeWine has said those responsible were familiar with the victims, their homes and the surrounding area.
