The state attorney general says homes at crime scenes where eight family members were shot to death in southern Ohio are being relocated to a secure location as the investigation continues.

Attorney General Mike DeWine says work to move the four mobile homes near Piketon began Thursday and will take several days. A Pike County judge approved the moves.

DeWine says the intent is to preserve the crime scenes the way they were found to help with the investigation and any future prosecution.

Seven adults and a 16-year-old boy from the Rhoden family were found dead April 22. Authorities have interviewed dozens of people, processed more than 100 pieces of evidence and received over 500 tips but haven’t made an arrest or identified who is responsible for the slayings.
