Jeff Ruby offers reward for information in murders of Ohio family

PIKETON, Ohio (WKYT) - Well-known restaurant owner Jeff Ruby is offering a $25,000 reward to anyone who can help lead authorities to arrests in the brutal murder of eight members of an Ohio family.

Ruby, who owns Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse, posted the reward on Twitter Saturday afternoon.

Investigators said they've interviewed more than 30 people hoping to find leads in the deaths of the seven adults and 16-year-old boy whose bodies were found Friday at homes southwest of Piketon, Ohio.

All were shot in the head, authorities said, and it appeared some were killed as they slept, including a mother in bed with her 4-day-old baby nearby. The newborn and two other small children were not hurt.

Authorities said all the victims were members of the Rhoden family, but they declined to provide any more information about them.

At this time, police have made no arrests and the shooter or shooters remain on the loose.
