A newspaper is suing a southern Ohio county over access to the preliminary autopsy results of eight relatives who were slain three months ago. The newspaper's attorney says Pike County Prosecutor Rob Junk has refused to allow a reporter to review the autopsy report and has not cited any applicable law to justify his refusal.


State and local investigators trying to determine who's responsible for the slayings of eight people from a family said Thursday they didn't know until this week about a $10,000 reward being offered to help solve the case. The reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction was approved by the Southern Ohio Crime Stoppers' board weeks after seven adults and a teenage boy from the Rhoden family were found dead at four homes near Piketon on April 22. A voicemail was left to notify the Pike County sheriff's office about the reward, but the information apparently got lost in the shuffle, said Ross County sheriff's Deputy Dave Weber, the Crime Stoppers liaison.
